The UK Telegraph carried a story that signals the EU members readiness to levy extra burden on the UK policymakers should they chose to delay the Brexit date.

The news report said that the EU is preparing to impose punitive conditions on Britain as its price for agreeing a Brexit delay if Theresa May is forced to ask for an extension this week.

Member states are “hardening” their attitudes towards a delay and will demand “legal and financial conditions” including a multi-billion pound increase to the £39bn divorce payment.
