UK Brexit extension could cause chaos for EU elections – Boylan

January 17, 2019

An extension of Article fifty could cause chaos for the European elections in May. That’s according to the Sinn Fein MEP Lynn Boylan.

The UK is supposed to leave the EU on the twenty ninth of March. However Theresa May’s failure to get her Withdrawal Deal approved by British MPs puts that deadline in doubt.

The British PM may need more time to secure an acceptable deal. However Lynn Boylan says prolonging the UK’s exit could cause even greater chaos.

UK needs to be clear about future deal for Article 50 extension – Boylan

January 17, 2019

There’s much speculation now about whether or not the UK will seek an extension to stay in the EU.

Britain is set to leave on March the twenty ninth. However, the House of Commons’ rejection of Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement means she’ll struggle to get approval for an acceptable deal by that deadline.

The Sinn Fein MEP Lynn Boylan says the UK will have to be very clear about what agreement they want in order to secure approval from the EU27 for an Article fifty extension.

Out words: this stage
