THERESA May has been forced to accept that Britain may not leave the European Union on March 29. The Prime Minister still insists that she doesn't want a delay, but if one is needed it will be "as short as possible". What will happen if Britain extends Article 50? Extending Article 50 would give Parliament more time to finalise a deal. As it stands, Britain is still set to leave the EU on March 29, with or without a Brexit deal. Britain can withdraw Article 50 without seeking permission from EU officials, and the UK will stay in the EU. But to extend, Mrs May will have to go to Brussels and formally ask EU officials for the process to be extended -and all 27 other EU countries will need to agree. Tory former Chancellor Ken Clarke said he wanted to congratulate the Prime Minister on "accepting that we're not remotely ready for the chaos of a no-deal departure on March 29".

Brexit might still take place on March 29 this year, but only if MPs accept … [Read more...] about What will happen if Britain extends Article 50 and what will this mean for Brexit?
Brexit what will happen
There is a lot of confusion over what Brexit means for the health cover of Britons living in France. Kalba Meadows who heads up Remain in France Together (RIFT) has taken a look at what would happen to our healthcare after Brexit, in both a deal and a no deal scenario.

It stated - rather blandly and as though it was of no great import - this: “If you have an S1 certificate, it will be valid until 29 March 2019. After this date, the certificate may not be valid, depending on decisions by member states.” Unsurprisingly this has provoked something of a reaction today and has been picked up by many newspapers. And confusion reigns about post-Brexit healthcare in France for British residents, especially for those who are covered by the current reciprocal health care arrangement … [Read more...] about Brexit: What will happen to your health cover in France (deal or no deal)

It's honestly very hard to know how the next two days will play out. In a sense we are precisely where most of us expected we would be at this end stage of the Brexit saga.The two sides take it to the wire; the negotiators have done as much as they can and it's now up the politicians - the EU leaders - to break the ever-predictable impasse.The thing is, it's genuinely very difficult to see how the last remaining circle - the Irish question - can be squared. In a nutshell, it's this (bear with me here)::: Neither side wants a hard border on the island of Ireland largely, but not only, because of what it could mean for the peace process.:: So when Brexit is a distant memory and the UK is firmly (happily?) out of the European Union, the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland must look precisely as it does now - invisible.:: The UK has committed to leaving the EU single market and customs union - because only by doing so can the UK sign its own trade deals globally.:: … [Read more...] about What will happen at ‘moment of truth’ Brexit summit?
