Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just bear in mind that it is diplomatically impossible for Le Drian to say "Of course, we could grant an extension to a different government", or "Britain needs to hold elections before the UE could grant an extension".
That would be foreign interference.

But he's dead right : all things being equal, there is no case for granting an extension [to a Conservative government]

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
