LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s housing minister Robert Jenrick said speculation that the government could ask another EU member state to veto a request to extend Article 50 to ensure Brexit happened on Oct. 31 was “tittle-tattle”.
“I have not heard any serious talk of that beyond the speculation that I have seen in the papers, so I think that, with all due respect, is just tittle-tattle,” he said on Sky News’ Sophie Ridge on Sunday programme.
