The Scottish judge has today announced that the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson does not have to ask for the extension to the Brexit-deal if there is no deal ready by 19 October.
The EU leaders summit is taking place 17-18 October and some MPs have asked that the UK Government should ask extension to Brexit if the leaders are not able to reach an agreement in order to avoid the no-deal scenario.
This positive sign for possible Brexit deal was welcomed in the markets and FTSE 100 -index closed up 0,59% to 7197 points in London. In Germany the markets closed also up and Dax-index rose 0,70 % to 12097 points. In France the CAC 40 -index closed up 0,61 % to 5521 points.
