However, Express news revealed a couple of respondents who shares the same view when they reacted to a question that seeks to gather if there should be an extension.

A user wrote: “There is no advantage to be gained by delay, in fact, there is much to be lost including more contributions from UK taxpayers.

“After the present health crisis, we need to be looking forward, not looking back or trying to have a foot in both camps.”

Another fellow said, “The EU agreed on the timetable it’s their problem if they now think it’s not long enough, and guess what if they were given an extension that to wouldn’t be long enough either, all they want is to keep the UK tied to them and of course keep the money coming in.”

“No deals or delays just get Brexit done and dusted no more delays,” another fellow said.

David McAllister, who’s the EU Parliament’s UK trade co-ordinator, revealed that Brussels is ready to extend the transition period.

“The EU has always been open to extending the transition period. The ball is now clearly in the British court. The United Kingdom would have to submit an official request.

“So far, the UK government has constantly rejected such an option. Under the current circumstances, London should carefully re-examine a prolongation,” he said.

Prime Minister’s spokesperson said on Monday, “We have shared legal texts and they are the subject of informal discussions between ourselves and the EU commission. I would expect those sorts of conversations to be carrying on this week.
