Further Brexit Delays

EU leaders have now agreed to extend the Brexit decision until 31st January 2020. Meaning the UK will not leave as planned on Thursday 31st October 2019.

The ‘flextension’ is named as such because the UK could leave before the January deadline if a deal is approved in Parliament.
