Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
conditional statements
"or, unless, for as long as"
testing the WA period (between entry and exit dates)
in which UK retains unilateral power to revoke A.50 action -ELSE- exit TEU as stipulated.

MODEL (not actual) TEU, WA, ECJ instructions

The WA text and ECJ interpretation of TEU ("judgment" quoted in part above) offered UK gov a ridiculous variety of opportunities to correct their own perversity. But I think we agree, Frank: The probability that the withdrawal agreement enters into force (IF signed and ratified) on or before 29 March 2019 per TEU approaches 0.

I have observed, one reason among many given NOT to enter the withdrawal agreement is its duration in force to exit date.

It is TRUE, sabotaging WA entry into force forecloses UK powers while WA is in force.

It is TRUE, UK High Court foreclosed SNP unilateral power to table a revoking bill.

It is FALSE, UK may modify TEU exit date by means or conditions other than WA terms which are not in force. (That is my read. TEU A.50 ends UK agency in EU. Council agreement to supersede would violate conclusion to negotiations, now submitted. UK retained powers pertain to ECJ narrow judgment and application of Vienna.)

UK gov could but will not obtain Art. 126 extension of WA period -THEN- power to revoke A.50 action on or before 31 Dec 2020 .

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
