NO, actually it cannot be delayed.

Leaving in March is UK Law, and to change that would create a huge constitutional crisis as that would signify the people's democracy is no more, and the establishment have taken over.

And of course if the UK remained in the EU past March, under their treaty rights UK Citizens must be given the right to vote in the European Elections, because that is their treaty rights. If those rights were to be removed, that would violate the treaty, thus making it null and void as the integrity of the Treaty, ensures all EU Citizens have a right to vote in European Elections.

And if UK Citizens did vote, they would vote in large numbers for the populist candidates, which would send a nasty message to Brussels and the UK Government, one they would not wish to make public.

Someone needs to check the legal situation. Brexit Cannot Be Delayed. At this point, it is the only thing that has been voted into law. 29 March 2019. With or without a deal. That is set in stone.

France should "FREXIT". I hear France is now a German puppet. After 1870, WWI and WWII, it is sad to see the French have not learned anything!
