if granted that presumably means we'll have to elect MEPs in May?

Only if the extension goes beyond the end of June.

At least the extension is not “the end of May” lol.

the proposal is to ask for an extension to some day in June.
yes, TTT, word has it you are standing for Tooting Broadway.
June 30.
But although the elections are May 23-26, the need to hold elections will be waived.

why ich, surely if we are in we are entitled to elect MEPs even if it's only for a few weeks.
You think that’s a good idea?!
My understanding is that EU elections will be held, come what may, and if the UK has not organised a withdrawal strategy by that time, then the UK will have to put up MEP candidates and up to the EU as any other member state would have to do.
Surely there is someone who can draw up a good deal and carry it through. I only ask don't let May do it, she has no idea what she's doing and thinks she is writing out her shopping list!!!
It takes two to negotiate though Sharon. Do you think any changes could be agreed with the EU that would satisfy both the staunch Remainers group and the staunch leavers group (who think the May deal was too much like Remain but not in name)?
There are various EU regulations that mean that the parliament might not be valid without sitting members from all member countries. So if the extension goes beyond June then the UK will have to have representatives in the EU parliament. In the past this has been got round by having for example a new member country having members of its own parliament attending.

ich 18:48 , yep we could elect all UKIP MPs and get them to make a dogs dinner of the whole shower!
What I find extraordinary is we have government ministers now saying it’s a choice between the PM’s deal and ... wait for it ... “a long delay” ! They cannot bring themselves to say it’s the deal (or “a” deal) or nothing.
Well ymb your good friend Nige and his mates are still there. The EU Parliament is their last bastion of power :0)
//The European Union is pushing for a lengthy extension of Britain’s negotiations for Brexit, pushing exit day well beyond March 29th — and leaving British officials to plan for Britain to participate in the European Parliament elections in May as if nothing has changed.//

But.....but Guy Verhofstadt is a bit queasy about us sending Nigel Back. Saying yesterday.
""I hope a no deal is massively rejected today & the UK Parliament position on an extension is known tomorrow. I am against any extension of Article 50, even for just 24 hours, if it is not based on a clear majority from the House of Commons in favour of something.""

Meanwhile Nigel presses the buttons with.
""Guy Verhofstadt said earlier that I would ‘hijack’ the European elections, if they took place.

What I think he meant is I would ‘obtain a lot of votes’.

Democracy is considered extremely inconvenient in the EU institutions.""

If we are forced to, make sure that you vote in the EUSSR pretend elections, and make sure that you vote for the candidate that wants to give them a kicking. This is not going to stop now until either the UK or the EUSSR is destroyed.
Like your avatar now ttt :-)

Whoo Hoo , We are Staying Good , feel so sorry for TGT.
What a shambolic mess. I’m sick to the back teeth with the whole thing. Treacherous, lying, conniving, duplicitous political shenanigans. To hell with them all.
The "people"(insert your own epithet) entrusted with carrying out our wishes have betrayed us. It is time to sweep the stables.

"It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.
In the name of God, go!"
