be able to pass something in the remaining days but there's no guarantee that they will be able to agree on something.
If the EU doesn't agree to an extension then the UK crashes out with a no deal.
If the EU agrees to an extension other than 3 months and/or attaches conditions then Parliament would have to agree to this - and there's no guarantee that the fragile no no-deal coalition would stand up to a 2 year extension or a demand for a second referendum or whatever the EU requires.
