Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Agreed, although EU leaders have stated they would support a further extension to facilitate a "democratic event" such as a change of Government, general election or referendum. It is quite conceivable they would refuse if Bojo is still poncing around seeking to cause trouble and blackguarding the EU, but might change their mind if a caretaker government is in power charged with coming up with proposals for a referendum.

The EU will try to avoid being responsible for a no-deal Brexit if at all possible, and there is always the chance the whole Brexit fiasco will run out of steam if they wait long enough. Bojo may be wrong about the EU always compromising at the last minute but fudge and procrastination are always on the menu.
