Prime Minister Johnson said last week he’d rather be “dead in a ditch” than comply with a vote in Parliament forcing him to ask the EU to postpone Brexit beyond Oct. 31.

But officials at the EU -- which is broadly in favor of an extension if it’s the only way to prevent a no-deal Brexit -- are privately voicing fears that one of their own leaders could help Johnson out. If a no-deal divorce is to be avoided, all remaining 27 member states would need to agree with Britain to extend the Brexit negotiating period at an October summit in Brussels.

EU officials privately acknowledge they could do little to stop a rebel leader wielding their veto. They worry that Johnson will try to convince Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has had his own clashes with Brussels over migration and steps to restrict democracy, to help him out. They think the U.K. sees Orban as an ally who will enjoy the opportunity to stand up against the European establishment.

Depart or Delay

“If there is such a request we’ll make our own decision,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said in an interview on Thursday in Budapest. “A few large western European member states really want to put an end to this and want it decided one way or another, so probably it won’t be our decision that will be key on this issue.”

London court rejects challenge to PM Johnson's suspension of parliament

London court rejects challenge to PM Johnson's suspension of parliament London court rejects challenge to PM Johnson's suspension of parliament before Brexit, but said it could be taken to the Supreme Court for an appeal, the BBC said. Johnson announced at the end of August that he would suspend parliament from mid-September to mid-October, just before Britain is due to leave the European Union on Oct. 31, so the government could announce a new legislative programme. That prompted campaigner Gina Miller, who defeated the government over another Brexit issue two years ago, to challenge the order.

He has suffered a succession of setbacks to his Brexit strategy. This month, Parliament voted against his wishes and passed a law requiring him to seek a delay to Brexit rather than crash the country out of the bloc with no deal on Oct. 31 if the two sides don’t strike an agreement before then.

Britain was due to leave the EU on March 29 but former prime minister Theresa May could not get the deal she negotiated through a skeptical Parliament in London. When she resigned and Johnson took over in July, he promised there would be no more delays to Brexit and stepped up preparations to ensure the U.K. will be ready to leave without a deal.

Although several European governments, notably the French, have questioned the wisdom of permitting Brexit to be delayed for a third time, the bloc is determined to avoid being blamed for a no-deal departure, which they think would be catastrophic. That’s why leaders will probably agree to another postponement even if they don’t want one, officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the subject is sensitive.

Ultimately, European diplomats predict Orban would reject Johnson’s overtures and fall into line with the rest of the EU over any extension request. Hungary receives large amounts of EU funding every year and they don’t think Orban will want to risk that, or co-operation on joint projects, for Brexit, even if he rattles a few cages first.
