EU's Tusk suggests only positive solution is for Britain to stay in EU

BRUSSELS, Jan 15 - The only positive solution after the British parliament decisively rejected an agreement on withdrawal from the EU negotiated by Prime Minister Theresa May is for Britain to stay in the EU, the chairman of EU leaders Donald Tusk said on Tuesday.

Lawmakers defeated May's Brexit divorce deal by a crushing margin, triggering political upheaval that could lead to a disorderly exit from the EU or even to a reversal of the 2016 decision to leave.

"If a deal is impossible, and no one wants no deal, then who will finally have the courage to say what the only positive solution is?" Tusk tweeted after the vote.
