Halloween Brexit

The UK is heading for a Halloween Brexit after the remaining 27 EU nations all agreed to offer Theresa May a further six months to ratify or rethink her withdrawal deal.

The second extension to the Brexit process definitively stopped the clock on a no-deal withdrawal on Friday with less than 48 hours to go.

But in an early-hours press conference, European Council president Donald Tusk did not rule out further extensions beyond October should British politicians carry on failing to reach an agreement on how to leave the EU among themselves.
