EU boss Jean Claude Juncker has he doesn’t see the EU giving Britain another Brexit extension past October 31.
The President of the European Commission warned that there could be a hard Brexit if a deal is not signed off before then.
The news will boost MPs who are calling for Britain to leave with No Deal as warring politicians still fail to come to an agreement on how to deal with the Brexit impasse.
Mr Juncker told MEPs in the European Parliament this morning: “31 October makes the new deadline for the orderly withdrawal from the UK.
“If the withdrawal agreement is not ratified by the British Parliament by then then then there would be a hard Brexit, which we would like to avoid.”
He said the UK can always request to cancel Brexit altogether and revoke Article 50, but he doesn’t see it happening.
“It is not my working hypothesis that beyond the 31 October, we will see an extension,” he added.
But he also promised that Brexit wouldn’t dominate the EU for months to come, adding: “Europe will go on.”
