A flexible 12 month-delay to Brexit. That's the proposal European Council President Donald Tusk is reportedly ready to offer London, if it helps break the deadlock over the terms of Britain's departure. His plan would allow Britain to leave the bloc sooner if its parliament approves the withdrawal deal the British Prime Minister agreed with the EU. British lawmakers have rejected the agreement three times. Talks between May's ruling conservatives and the opposition Labour party are set to continue in a bid to break the impasse. The UK is due to leave the bloc on 12th April. Brexit is also top of the agenda in Ireland, where German Chancellor Angela Merkel held talks yesterday. There are concerns that a no-deal outcome could have dire consequences, especially for the delicate peace process in Northern Ireland. Merkel drew on her personal experience with the Berlin Wall to show solidarity with the people of Ireland.
