Tusk reveals EU has agreed two week Brexit deal under conditions

Theresa May insisted tonight it was the ‘moment of decision’ for MPs as she accepted EU terms for delaying Brexit by at least two weeks. EU Council President Donald Tusk confirmed plans for a two-stage delay plan. If Mrs May passes her deal at a third attempt next week, Britain will be allowed to stay in the EU until May 22. If she fails, Britain must say whether it will take part in the EU elections by April 12. If elections take place, a longer delay could be agreed – but if the polls are not held then No Deal looms because Britain staying in becomes impossible. The agreement avoids the need for an emergency EU summit as soon as next week. EU sources told Sky News the plan ‘reduces the likelihood of a chaotic crash out in the next 7 days, or a 24 hour scramble to find an alternative.’ In a press conference held after midnight in Brussels, Mrs May said she would return to Britain in the morning to resume work on building support for the deal. Most in Westminster believe she is doomed to fail a third time. She insisted Britain should still leave in an ‘orderly fashion’ with a deal despite MPs rejecting it twice by a landslide. Amid fury at her tirade against MPs last night, Mrs May admitted to expressing her ‘frustration’ at the situation – insisting politicians on all sides had ‘passionately held views’ – but stopped short of apologising.
