European Council President Donald Tusk said the EU would grant an extension but only if MPs back the PMs deal. But Mrs May hit out at MPs saying Parliament has done everything possible so far to avoid making a choice. Mr Tusk has indicated the EU27 could agree an extension in principle subject to Mrs May getting her Withdrawal Agreement through Parliament next week. Brussels says that no further extension to Article 50 will be possible if the UK has not taken part in the vote. It leaves the choices for Parliament between Mays deal and no deal. It is unclear at this time whether the 27 remaining EU countries will agree to such a short extension because that is to allow MPs to come around to the idea of voting for Mays deal?May said a longer extension would allow Parliament to contemplate its navel for a longer period of time
