Brexit: round and round and round we go....

European Council President Donald Tusk has announced that the Heads of the 27 countries that will remain in the European Union after Brexit have agreed on Monday (Oct. 28th) to accept London’s request for a Brexit extension until January 31st of next year. 

“The EU27 has agreed that it will accept the UK’s request for a Brexit flextension until 31 January 2020,” Tusk said in a tweet. 

Tusk also said the decision is expected to be formalised through a written procedure, which means EU leaders should not have to meet in person to formalise it.

The agreement is expected to provide for an option for the UK to leave earlier if a new Brexit deal is ratified, although there is little expectation of that in either Brussels or London.
