Poll: Should the EU grant Theresa May another extension?

No one wants an extension – but the EU and UK want a no-deal Brexit even less.

TODAY, BRITISH PRIME Minister Theresa May will ask for EU leaders to grant her another extension to avoid a no-deal Brexit on Friday.

She’s already asked European Council president Donald Tusk for an extension until 30 June, who has instead opted for offering a flexible extension of up to a year, which would be cut short in the event of May’s deal being approved in the House of Commons.

But a flexible extension would mean that the UK would have to take part in European elections, scheduled for 23-26 May across Europe.

So, we’re asking for your take: Should the EU grant Theresa May another extension?

Poll Results:

No (4461)
Yes, a flexible extension (3145)
Yes, til 30 June (1306)
I haven't a clue (538)
