By DARREN HUNT PUBLISHED: 22:34, Fri, Jan 18, 2019 | UPDATED: 22:37, Fri, Jan 18, 2019 20 Brexit: Most likely scenario is an Article 50 extension says expert CLOSE Pause Unmute Current Time 0:50 / Duration 0:54 Facebook Twitter Share Fullscreen Brexit: The British people will never surrender says Gerard BattenUP NEXT: Luke Baker, Paris Bureau Chief for Reuters, has claimed there are “only really two things that can happen” for the future of Brexit. Mr Baker claimed Theresa May would have to find a way of getting an amended deal through Parliament, and then agreeing to those terms with the EU. Or, the European Union comes forward to offer the UK adjustments to the deal, which is then voted on in Parliament. But, despite his prediction, Mr Baker warned he thought the "more likely" result was the UK getting stuck in a “suspended animation” waiting for Brexit to happen after the country extends Article 50.
