I can fully understand, Jackos, why the EU would be tempted not to extend the deadline. It is, however, a temptation they should resist.
The EU has many flaws. It’s democratic and bureaucratic institutions are a bit of a muddle and largely remote from voters in member states. It’s economic machinery fails to coordinate monetary and fiscal policy.
But one thing it has always sought to do is to bring the peoples of Europe together. For that reason, it should not turn its back on sixteen million Europeans who voted Remain, and others who have been cruelly misled by duplicitous charlatan leaderships in both main Parties.
Like you, I have less sympathy for hardcore Brexiteers who may well get what they voted for. I also have little sympathy for those Labour Members who self indulgently voted for the lifelong Eurosceptic Corbyn as Labour Leader despite knowing an EU referendum was imminent.
But it’s only a tiny minority who join political parties and elect these leaders. And it’s also a minority of voters who favour a hard Brexit. The EU should not give up on the innocent victims of this mess many of whom are still fighting for their future through marches, petitions, and other activities. At least remain open to them - they might yet prevail.
