Brexit Delayed To Halloween: EU Leaders Agree A 'flextension' Until October 31 That Lets Britain Out Of EU

Mrs May told reporters after the gruelling late-night summit that she still believed the UK could leave the EU by June and gave no indication that she planned to resign as the EU imposed a Halloween Brexit delay
Theresa May has been handed a humiliating Halloween Brexit nightmare with EU leaders agreeing to a 'flextension' that delays the UK's departure until October 31 at a crunch summit that ended at 2am today.
But the Prime Minister was handed a slim lifeline with the 27 states adding a break clause saying the UK can leave earlier if she can convince MPs to pass a Brexit deal - but Brussels will not reopen the Withdrawal Agreement to make that easier. 
The six-month extension will be accompanied by a technical review in June, dashing the hopes of the Prime Minister, who had begged them to postpone our departure only until the end of that month. 
Mrs May tried to appear positive after the summit. She told reporters: 'What we have agreed tonight means that we can actually leave the European Union before June 30.

9th National Assembly: Would History Repeat Itself?

Last Friday, I decided to do something I hadn’t done in a long while. I went into the main bowl of Transcorp Hilton, Abuja to nose around for a different kind of news. Since that was the day the authorities were rounding off the weeklong induction of the first batch of newly-elected senators and representatives, I reckoned there would be so much to hear or see. And, there was!

The hotel which never lacks guests lived up to expectation that fateful weekend. The lobby though was unusually jampacked. With everyone dressed to kill, it was absolutely impossible to differentiate between those who had come to be inducted and those whose sole aim was to abduct attention or job or money, or all. Any novice reporter would have fallen mugu.
