Risk of no-deal Brexit 'very real', Juncker tells EU lawmakers
EU lawmakers backed a resolution calling for the UK to be granted another extension, after the current one expires on 31 October, to allow more time for London to agree the terms of its withdrawal.

The resolution, passed by a hefty 544 to 126 majority, states that MEPs are open to an extension, though Parliament President David Sassoli said this could only be if the UK held an election or a referendum.

oops. How 'bout that "minority" report, eh.
"If the UK leaves without a deal, all these questions will not disappear - they are still be there and need to be settled prior to a future relationship with the UK," Barnier told EU lawmakers.
"At the moment it is not Britain leaving the EU, but jobs and businesses leaving Britain," European People's Party (EPP) leader Manfred Weber said to jeers from the Brexit party.
