The European Union (EU) is ready to grant Brexit deferment to Great Britain until February 2020 if British Prime Minister Boris Johnson fails to lead a Brexit agreement through the British Parliament before 31 October. That writes the British newspaper The Sunday Times.
According to the newspaper, EU diplomats have several options for deferment. They range from a month to half a year or even longer.
The British government wants to hold a new vote on Monday about the agreement concluded with the EU last week. According to The Guardian, this is apparent from the parliamentary agenda. Parliament’s President John Bercow can still put a stop to the vote, but he will not announce that until Monday at the earliest.
