Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No one can be sure, at this stage, how the Council would react to a withdrawal of an A50 letter. I haven't even been able to find out whether that decision would be by unanimous or weighted majority vote.  It is simply unprecedented. I suspect the Council would need to be convinced that the UK has changed it's mind about leaving the EU and isn't simply using the withdrawal of the A50 letter as a tactic to gain two more years of negotiating time. And the only way it could be convinced of that is if a second referendum or another general election produced a victory for a Government supporting remain.
