Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So can they revoke it and then immediately submit another one, thus gaining more time? If so, why all this talk about a few months extension?

Cancellation should be considered valid as long as the withdrawing government notifies the European Council -- the body of EU governments -- and "does not involve an abusive practice".

No ... errr not yet
However, that possibility of unilateral revocation is subject to certain conditions and limits. First, like the notification of the intention to withdraw, the unilateral revocation must be notified by a formal act to the European Council. Secondly, it must respect national constitutional requirements. If, as is the case in the UK, prior parliamentary authorisation is required for the notification of the intention to withdraw, it is logical that the revocation of that notification also requires parliamentary approval. There is also a temporal limit on the possibility of revocation, since revocation is possible only within the two-year period that begins when the intention to withdraw is notified. The principles of good faith and sincere cooperation must also be observed, in order to prevent abuse of the procedure laid down in Article 50 TEU.

Only a lawyer could have dreamed that one up! Can you imagine a member state being prosecuted for lacking in good faith or sincere cooperation? Me neither!

The whole Brexit thing has been full of "good faith and sincere cooperation" from the get go.
