There will be no further extansions granted to the UK unless the present agreement is ratified by 12 April.

I find that hard to believe. If Corbyn and May can agree something that will get through then they will extend.

They don't want a hard brexit either.

“You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point."

But, having given an extension once, that is no longer an immutable position. After all, it does not particularly benefit the EU to force a No Deal exit, either.

Also, who actually made that statement, how authoritative is it?

From the Guardian (my italics): 'Norbert Röttgen, a member of Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union who heads the Bundestag’s foreign affairs committee, tweeted on Wednesday morning: “In the current situation of deep institutional deadlock, there is no point in asking for another short delay of Brexit. EU should insist on long extension with participation in EU elections."'

Two centuries seems an appropriate length of time to me.

They'll extend for ever and a day given the chance.

Juncker.

EDIT; the OP is slightly wrong in that Juncker said there would be no more "short" extensions after then.

Words are a medium that reduces reality to abstraction for transmission to our reason, and in their power to corrode reality inevitably lurks the danger that the words will be corroded too. It might be more appropriate, in fact, to liken their action to excessive stomach fluids that digest and gradually eat away the stomach itself.

I think they would, but that would be pretty much the worst thing to do. Its the uncertainty that fecks things up.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Isn't it the Secretary-General of the European Commission Martin Selmayr's decision as whether we get an extension or not?

That would be eminently sensible. But May’s recent speach suggested she had no intention of participating in the Euro elections because she wanted to wrap everything up by the cutoff date. But now she’s just said she will start preparing for the elections, so who knows. Rarely does she say what she means, so either option is presumably possible.

Well, yes - but some media will have you believe that nothing gets done that Juncker's bulldog does not want to get done. Anyway, it is up to the Lords before we find out:
