It is being reported that Tory MEP’s have been summoned to a meeting in Downing Street prior to a “huge announcement”.
Government sources are claiming the meeting is part of the regular schedule however other sources are speculating that they are going to be told they must restand in European Elections in May due to an extension of Article 50.
Meanwhile, it is being briefed that Article 50 maybe extended even if Theresa May wins the ‘Meaningful Vote’ due to the ‘volume of legislation’ that needs to be passed.
Two possibilities exist:
- This is another scaremongering tactic to help Treason May in the seemingly impossible quest to save her sell-out deal.
- The constant drum beat of speculation IS preperation for an extension.
Either would be yet another betrayal of Brexit.
