#1 Not likely.
Boris will need to ask for an extension.
He can still get his Brexit legislation through Parliament but if he doesn't, the EU will certainly grant an extension, maybe as late as October 31.
No deal is pretty much off the table now. It will either be deal or extension, and an extension will probably mean elections and/or second referendum.
But the UK will NOT leave the EU if the deal is voted down on October 31.

#3 The Benn Act is very clear. Boris must ask for an extension until midnight.

#4 EC learn to accept the inevitable - you sound just like some people in Russia in 1989.

#5 Brexit means Brexit
Leave means getting out of the EUSSR's common market, there's nothing in the referendum about any extra "deal" beyond the WTO.

Can't leave too quick, already a year plus wasted in the EUSSR.

#6 I suppose in the UK Parliament still has the final say.

#7 I'm betting on 'second referendum and no more brexit'. Of course it's not what I'd want, but that's the kind of thing expected from this facade.

"We... uhh, we just changed our mind. Bollocks to brexit."

#8 What's wrong about asking the people to decide on this question: Do you want the UK to leave on the proposed terms or stay within the EU?

o Yes, Leave
o No, Remain

#9 An astute man would see that as :

O You think you could leave on your terms ? After ye gave up yer sovrinty ? Spend another few years selecting the person Brussels will deal with. Dissolve your parliament again and again.

O Noice experiment eh, nonce ? Status Quo for your trouble.

There is no exit. Knew that from the start. If it happens, the EU... nope, it just can't be allowed by the politicians, the civil servants, the multinational corporations.

I'd be really very surprised if brexit actually happened.

#10 I'd be really very surprised if brexit actually happened.

I'd be really very surprised if peaceful Brexit happens now. The British branch of EU elites just signed their class' death warrant.

#11 I am starting to think Britain is California where the people vote but politicians, courts and special interest decide the outcome.

#12 The new Date will probably be Jan 31.

Parliament votes for delay.

#13 I'm starting to think that men in the UK are allowed to decide whether they want to marry or not, but are not supposed to have a say about the bride.

#14 Blame the Tories who screwed this up big time. There was enough time to negotiate a good deal. But the UK always wanted to have the cake and eat it.

#15 EU has received extension request.

#16 Had the question already, Britain voted to leave the EUSSR.

Maybe when Britain votes to Leave they can "ask" a third time "are you sure you're sure?"

I think MPs are going to find out if they decide to ignore the rules of democracy then the people they decided they're "more equal" than will act too.
