Happy Halloween! Brexit delayed until October 31 when all your nightmares will come true

Fuck Freddie Krueger your diabetic son won't have his insulin

Trick or treat! Brexit will be delayed until October 31, the leaders of the European Union's other 27 member states have agreed.

Give me a 10 bag-sized Snickers or I will shrink your GDP growth by two to 15 per cent.

Theresa May sprinted across the Channel for an EU council summit today, where it was decided the UK's departure from the EU will be delayed until October 31, with a review in June (the prime minister's preferred extension date.)


Yesterday EU council president Donald Tusk wrote to EU leaders requesting a year-long delay to Brexit.

The decision heads off a no deal exit this Friday, mitigating the prime minister's parroted position that no deal is better than a bad deal - it's not, it would have to be a fucking terrible deal.

Significantly, the extension provides just enough time for a second referendum to be held, 24 weeks exactly.

Not that that's likely to happen.


The June review date was added after strong man shenanigans from Emmanuel Macron, an EU diplomat told Reuters that the French president was "in a bit of a schizophrenic situation."

They also report that the reason for selecting October 31 "is that it stops before the new European Commission takes office on Nov. 1, so Britain cannot obstruct the functioning of the EU executive."

Theresa May returned to the summit with the EU27 after dinner with the UK's permanent representative to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow, for confirmation.

Happy Halloween!
