TUSK OFF: Europrat Donald Tusk Pushing For ONE YEAR Brexit Delay

BRUSSELS Europrat Donald Tusk wants Britain’s departure from the European Union delayed by up to a year, it emerged tonight.

The BBC reported that European Council president Donald Tusk has suggested offering the UK a “flexible” extension to Brexit of up to a year, with the option of leaving earlier if a deal is ratified.

He said there was “little reason to believe” a Brexit deal would be approved by the extension deadline UK PM Theresa May has requested – 30 June.

Writing to EU leaders, he said any delay should have conditions attached.

EU states will vote on the extension proposals at a summit on Wednesday.

A draft EU document circulated to diplomats ahead of the emergency summit also proposes an extension but leaves the date of the proposed new deadline blank.
