Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Given an A50 extension requires unanimous agreement, would at least some Council members not demand a price for their agreement?  For instance, Ireland would demand a written guarantee of no "hard border" controls within Ireland. Others might demand a down payment on the severance payment - something that would be v. difficult for the UK government to agree. Personally I think this is unlikely without a general election and change of government in the UK, so it would require a Commons confidence defeat, rather than just a few cabinet resignations.
