    Doesn't matter, there's no take-backsies on referendum results

    Wow, you are being especially dumb as the European Community was not the EU. If it was still just the European Community of 1975 then people wouldn’t have voted to leave as that was not the anti-democratic abomination which is the current EU.

    He could have shortened things quite a bit if he just sent one letter asking and not asking for an extension

    Votes are not forever things. We don’t vote once and then let the results stand forever (as much as Trump would like to be President for life). If the people change their minds so be it.

    More than likely the EU will want to tack on demands in exchange for an extension; Boris has said he will not make any compromises and will actively work to use their MEPs to make the EU as dysfunctional as possible to jam things up. That is exactly as it should be because this farce needs to end but the EU is trying to drag it out hoping they can eventually reverse the will of the people.

    I don’t see it working especially since pro-Brexit voters will be absolutely incensed, some possibly to the point of violence at their election results being ignored. As they should be.

    BoJo didn't want to anger the parliament needlessly and obeyed.
    The extension request already has arrived on the desk of Donald Tusk

    To delay voting on his “deal” which is just May’s nonBrexit with one or two very minor tweaks. My guess is it won’t pass Parliament, and it really shouldn’t because it remains a steaming pile of excrement, and no deal is the result. That is actually a good thing because no deal is the best possible long term solution.

    Odds seem low considering the DUP are against it.
