The EU has told Theresa May it will grant an extension – but not to her wished date of 30 June. A Brexit date of 22 May will be granted, but only if she can get her deal through Parliament next week.
The EU’s decision makes May’s astonishing statement last night, in which she alienated MPs by blaming all of them for her incompetence in language calculated to incite extremists, look even more ill advised.
May is now at the mercy of MPs across the Brexit-Remain spectrum, having just done everything she can to turn them against her.
