Germany's Merkel: I will fight to the last minute for an orderly Brexit
Comments by German chancellor, Angela Merkel
- Says EU will try to react to any wishes that UK presents
- Wants to ensure that good ties are maintained after Brexit
With May unlikely to offer anything new to European leaders before the summit on Thursday, there isn't much that they can really discuss aside from agreeing to find a way to extend the Brexit deadline next week.
As it stands, there's mounting speculation that May will still push forward with a third meaningful vote regardless of Bercow's ruling overnight; and there's plenty of talk that there are a number of workarounds for the government to succeed in doing so.
That means should May get the numbers, a third vote will be tabled next week and if not, we'll just be staring at prospects of a long Brexit extension right before the 29 March deadline.
