The leaked document, obtained by Express.co.uk, says: “The European Council agrees to an extension to 22 may 2019 provided the withdrawal agreement is approved by house of commons next week if withdrawal agreement is not approved by House of Commons next week the European Council agrees to extension to April 12 2019 and expects the UK to indicate a way forward by the European Council.”
This will give the Prime Minister the opportunity to lock Britain into the EU for up to two years, but only if he commits to holding EU Parliament elections.
