BREXIT BOMBSHELL: MEPs summoned for HUGE announcement – claims Article 50 to be EXTENDED

Number 10 has said the meeting is normal but MEPs believe she is plotting to extend Article 50.

It would mean British European politicians would have to stand in May’s European Parliament elections.

However earlier this morning a government spokesperson said the Prime Minister had “ruled out” extending Article 50 after Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt was quoted as saying it is “more likely” that Brexit won’t happen if Parliament votes down the deal next week.

Europe’s MEPs are due to debate the result of the meaningful vote on Wednesday morning from 7.30am UK time.

However it is not yet clear if the Prime Minister wants the meaningful vote, which she appears doomed to lose, to go ahead or if she plans to delay Article 50 before Tuesday’s Brexit deal judgement.

Buzzfeed’s political editor broke the news that MEPs are being recalled immediately from Brussels to meet the Prime Minister.

He tweeted: “Conservative MEPs have been summoned to Downing Street to meet the PM.

“No10 source says it’s a regular meeting but MEPs are speculating about an extension to Article 50 meaning they would have to stand in the May Euro elections.”

Meanwhile’s Brussels correspondent Joe Barnes said rumours were circulating about a possible Article 50 extension.

However cagey European Parliament sources moved to squash the reports, saying the meeting is “far more routine.”
