The internet was alive with chatter on Saturday evening after Boris Johnson finally broke his promise and sent a letter requesting for a Brexit extension.

After suffering an embarrassing defeat in the Commons over his Brexit plans, the prime minister got a senior diplomat to send an unsigned photocopy of the call by MPs to delay withdrawal from the bloc.

But in a second note to European Council president Donald Tusk, the PM said a Brexit extension would be "deeply corrosive".

The move came after a defiant prime minister told the Commons he will not negotiate a fresh Brexit extension with the EU.

The stance is likely to spark a fierce political row, but Twitter reacted in its usual manner, finding light of the situation.
