BRUSSELS (AP) — Just two days away from a potentially calamitous no-deal Brexit, European Union leaders opened talks today to discuss granting the United Kingdom a new delay — possibly of up to a year — to its departure from the bloc.

It’s likely to be a rough day for British Prime Minister Theresa May as she pleads for a second extension until June 30, to prevent Britain’s scheduled departure from the EU this Friday.

European Council President Donald Tusk has suggested an even longer delay of up to a year, with conditions attached to ensure Britain does not stymie EU decision-making if it remains a member.
