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

EU can decline agreement of "A.50(3) period" for any reason.

Sure, the EU can refuse to approve a future agreement. And the Uk can refuse to approve a future agreement. In both cases, the UK reverts to third country status. But "everybody" says that a future agreement can be reached.

Seems to me that the UK refusing a WA with a backstop is equivalent to the UK saying that a suitable future agreement cannot actually be reached, in which case it might as well be a no-agreement withdrawal right now.
