Should the UK remain a member of the EU in GF - General Forum Posted 23 Oct 2019, 17:33:25 · Report reply 8 hours ago, Pistonbroke said: If the extension until the 31st January is granted and a GE follows does anybody think this will resolve anything? The Lib Dems will be happy, as they are only interested in gaining seats, which they most certainly will, and in doing so be a major player should a coalition be needed. The Brexit party will do well, especially when the knuckle draggers start screaming for a No Deal Brexit. Obviously the two main parties will suffer and I doubt either will have enough seats to govern outright. Any election would probably have to take place early December which is not enough time for canvasing etc, it will be in affect nothing more than a second referendum on Brexit but with a vote spread about instead of just a clear yes/no option. Of course, if No Deal isn't taken off the table completely then there probably won't be an election. No; only in the event of a tory majority where they will leave or a set of circumstances that sees article 50 revoked. I can only see a hung parliament of an unidentified flavour although the parliamentary arithmetic will move around as the inevitable number of mp's turnover. Tusk would really need to give a fifteen month extension until the end of 2020 as the election will take up everything until Christmas.
