You’ve got 54 more days! Leaked document shows EU will give UK until May 22 to sort Brexit

EUROPEAN Union leaders will restrict Theresa May’s Brexit delay to just 54 days, draft conclusions from the crunch Brussels summit have revealed.

The EU27, in “draft conclusions still under consideration”, will limit the Prime Minister’s delay because of her refusal to consider European Parliament elections in Britain. Conclusions written by top European Council officials were presented to leaders in an envelope after they were addressed by Mrs May. They note reads: “The European Council commits to agreeing to an extension until May 22 2019, provided the withdrawal agreement is approved by the House of Commons next week.

“Given that the UK does not intend to hold elections to the European Parliament, no extension is possible beyond that date.”
