Will an EU country veto an extension of Brexit's deliberation before Oct 31st 2019?
[Related to Will Brexit happen by End of Day Oct. 31st 2019?]
One of the key scenario paths where Britain leaves the EU before Oct. 31st is if one of the other 27 EU countries vetos an extension. At previous Brexit deadlines EU member states agreed to extend the process; however, it seems there's a notable frustration and a desire to 'get it over with'. If an EU country does veto a motion for extension, then no-deal Brexit could become the default.
Will an EU country veto an extension of the Brexit deliberation period on or before Oct 31st 2019?
This question will resolve positively if an extension is requested and a country (other than the U.K.) vetoes a motion to move the deadline for the U.K. leaving the European Union to a date later than Oct. 31st, 2019. The question resolves negatively if an extension is requested and not vetoed. It resolves ambiguous if an extension is not requested.
Metaculus help: Predicting
Predictions are the heart of Metaculus. Predicting is how you contribute to the wisdom of the crowd, and how you earn points and build up your personal Metaculus track record.
The basics of predicting are very simple: move the slider to best match the likelihood of the outcome, and click predict. You can predict as often as you want, and you're encouraged to change your mind when new information becomes available.
The displayed score is split into current points and total points. Current points show how much your prediction is worth now, whereas total points show the combined worth of all of your predictions over the lifetime of the question. The scoring details are available on the FAQ.
Note: this question resolved before its original close time. All of your predictions came after the resolution, so you did not gain (or lose) any points for it.

Metaculus help: Community Stats
Use the community stats to get a better sense of the community consensus (or lack thereof) for this question. Sometimes people have wildly different ideas about the likely outcomes, and sometimes people are in close agreement. There are even times when the community seems very certain of uncertainty, like when everyone agrees that event is only 50% likely to happen.
When you make a prediction, check the community stats to see where you land. If your prediction is an outlier, might there be something you're overlooking that others have seen? Or do you have special insight that others are lacking? Either way, it might be a good idea to join the discussion in the comments.
