Should the UK get a Brexit-extension? In addition, the European Council advises today. It seems that a majority of the members of the EU wanted to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit on Friday. From an economic point of view, and with a view on the UK's internal politics – this is absolutely useful. A serious Argument against it: With an extended Deadline, the UK would have to participate in the elections to the European Parliament. This would strand a large number of radicalised and politically unpredictable Brexiteers in the European Parliament. There they would join a growing Block of nationalist and populist parties. What could this mean, formulated by the British Radical Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg recently: "We will be as difficult as possible." The obstruction is for many of the populist parties are only a means to an end. The European Anti-Europeans are actually no more.

For Salvini, Meuthen, the Finn Olli Kontro and the Dane Anders Vistisen is the counter-image of "a Union of common sense".
The Euro-sceptics have developed their own picture of Europe, by cooperation makes a lot of sense. You want to make use of the institutions. Alexander Clarkson, of European studies at King'teaches College, writes: you can aspire to a "dark version" of Europe. Because the Union benefits them. On the aid from the structural funds, you can't do without. Also for the populist notions of migration policy, the EU could be quite useful. Although the European Parliament has little decision-making power. However, it can exert political pressure against open borders in the EU, for military secure external borders, Not on the budget.More about

order one and a Half months before the election, it looks as populist and nationalist parties could win a third or more of the seats. So you could block many of the decisions and resolutions by the absolute majority of bedürffen, or hinder, especially when the other parties and blocs to find a common line. The Brexiteers you don't need to do this, probably not. But the times in the European Parliament are likely to be restless enough – since it doesn't need the British, who carry their unresolved national conflicts in the house.
