EU's Tusk will appeal for long Brexit extension, if needed

Brussels - European Council President Donald Tusk says he will appeal to EU capitals to consider a long delay to Britain's departure from the European Union, "if the UK finds it necessary," a week before leaders are due to discuss the issue in Brussels.

"During my consultations ahead of [the EU summit], I will appeal to the EU27 to be open to a long extension if the UK finds it necessary to rethink its Brexit strategy and build consensus around it," Tusk tweets.
EU leaders are expected to reach a decision on any British extension request at their summit on March 21-22, if such a request is forthcoming following a vote in the British parliament on Thursday.
