Tusk tells EU to give UK 12-month Brexit delay

Donald Tusk has said that a 12-month 'flextension' offer is 'the only reasonable way out' of the crisis and will urge leaders of the EU's 27 member states to back him later today. This morning the Prime Minister sent a letter to Mr Tusk to formally request an extension to Article 50 that will delay the UK's departure beyond April 12 to June 30 - but wants a 'termination clause'. This would allow the UK to leave on May 22 - the day before European elections - if a deal can be pushed through the UK Parliament. But Mrs May's letter admits that if she fails Britain would go to the polls to elect MEPs between May 23 and May 26, who would then be paid a £85,000-a-year salary to sit in Brussels as the UK tries to leave. EU sources have said they will reject Mrs May's June 30 Brexit date and tell her that a year-long deal is the only option. With No Deal now off the table she would be forced to accept it. Theresa May's cabinet is considering giving MPs a vote on holding a second referendum as the price of a deal with Jeremy Corbyn, it emerged today. But ministers are considering quitting if Britain does not leave by May and backbench Brexiteers said today: 'The little bit of credibility she has left would be completely shattered' if she offered a new public poll.

Just when you thought Parliament couldn't sink any lower, along comes Peterborough's jailbird MP Fiona Onasanya to cast the deciding vote in favour of the latest Stop Brexit manoeuvre.

Mrs May has said she will seek an extension to June 30 at an emergency summit in Brussels. But European Council president Mr Tusk said that he wanted a delay to March 31 2020.

Julian Assange 'to be kicked out of the Ecuadorean embassy in HOURS and arrested' says

Julian Assange's seven-year stay in Ecuador's London embassy appeared on the verge of ending this morning after WikiLeaks reported the country had agreed to hand him over to British police. The website made the claims about its founder in a series of late-night Tweets citing unnamed sources in the Ecuadorean authorities as confirming Mr Assange (inset) would be kicked out in 'hours or days'.

They continued to arrive throughout the morning, holding posters calling for him to be allowed to leave without fear of being arrested. A van later arrived at the building bearing a billboard in support of Mr Assange, and parked in a space reserved for diplomats.

Family of missing 14-year-old boy say they are devastated by cruel hoax as FBI reveals 23-year-old man who claimed to be the teenager is a convicted criminal with a history of lying to cops 

'It's devastating. It's like reliving that day all over again and Timmothy's father is devastated once again,' the boy's aunt Kara Jacobs (left with his grandmother Alana Anderson) said. The family said that they were elated when they first heard that a boy claiming to be Timmothy Pitzen (top right) had been found wandering the streets of Newport, Kentucky. He told police that he had been kidnapped but had fled his abductors in Cincinnati, Ohio, and run across state lines to safety. But that hope was cruelly dashed when police ran a DNA test and found that 'Timmothy' was actually 23-year-old ex-convict Brian Michael Rini (bottom right). 'It's been awful,' said Timmothy's grandmother Alana Anderson. 'We're been on tenderhooks... it's been exhausting.'
