In addition to finally admitting they need to find and prepare candidates to contest the EU elections, the government also seems to think Cooper's bill will get passed today:
The Commons Leader, Andrea Leadsom, has confirmed the government is expected to bring forward a motion to extend the Brexit process. Making a business statement to MPs, she has said:
In the event the European Union (Withdrawal) (No 5) Bill receives royal assent today, the House may be expected to approve a motion relating to section one of the Bill – to seek an extension of the period specified in Article 50 (3) of the Treaty on European Union.
(I - and I imagine thousands of others - got an email from Labour two days asking if I wanted to put my name forward as a MEP candidate. I think not.)
