Does anyone think  the Portuguese Government will extend to 6 months for UK Citizens to stay in Portugal without a Visa??

Hi and welcome to the forum from me.

I'd say almost definitely not. The visa waiver arrangements are common to all Schengen member states and there's a mechanism for requesting a visa for an extension of stay in PT territory for those who wish to, so an automatic 6 months for all seems highly unlikely to me, unless all Schengen member states see good reason to change the status quo.
