The leaders and heads of state of the EU 27 offered the UK an extension to Article 50 negotiations. If the UK agrees to the Withdrawal Deal by the 12th April they will extend negotiations to the 22nd May in order for the UK to pass the necessary legislation. If the UK fails to agree to the Deal by the 12th April they will have to agree next steps with the EU. The two main options are: 1) a significantly longer extension to pursue a new Brexit strategy, involving taking part in European Elections 2) a no-deal Brexit.
