UK’s Fox: EU offering long Brexit delay "not possible"

British Trade Minister Liam Fox said in an interview with BBC TV on Sunday, the European Union (EU) offering the UK a long delay to Brexit because of upcoming European elections is not possible.

It was still “entirely possible” Britain leaves the bloc as scheduled on March 29 but an extension to the Article 50 negotiating period may be necessary in order to deliver a smooth exit from the bloc.

Asked how he would react if the EU insisted on a much longer delay of 21 months or two years, “I would be shocked because I think it is actually not a possible outcome.”

“The European Union does not want Britain to fight the European elections.”
