"[May] now hopes to secure an exchange of letters or side-declarations pledging that the backstop… would be temporary and unlikely to come into force… Downing Street admitted that the document may not be legally binding"https://t.co/m5oUJYrQLm

Theresa May has delayed a vote on her Brexit deal, after it became clear the deeply unpopular proposal would have gone down by a humiliating margin. https://t.co/RJV4IHPciw

I can’t follow anymore. After two years of negotiations, the Tory government wants to delay the vote. Just keep in mind that we will never let the Irish down. This delay will further aggravate the uncertainty for people & businesses. It’s time they make up their mind! #brexit

BREAKING: More than 50 People's Vote-backing Labour MPs, MEPs and peers write to Jeremy Corbyn asking him to table a no confidence motion in the government immediately. But the DUP have said they will back the govt unless the withdrawal agreement is passed, so unlikely to pass.

This is a remarkable letter. Socialists and progressives from across Europe, even beyond the EU, call on Jeremy Corbyn to oppose Brexit.

Labour calling no confidence vote in the Government could backfire, uniting Tory MPs around May. Corbyn likely to lose without support of a DUP wanting Brexit and the PM changed, not the Cons

Cancelling Article 50 process is now a real option available to UK – yet both major party leaders remain committed to Brexit, Corbyn even more wholeheartedly than May. If an election is forced – who will speak for what polls now suggest is Britain's most desired option?

"Our union only endures with their consent."
This is a strong inference to a united Ireland. It seems Theresa May has grasped that Irish Nationalists & other NI remainers have been tested to the brink over Brexit & that the backstop is the only way to prevent it.

To my friends who still think the Mueller investigation is illegitimate — Trump’s team has surrounded its Russia contacts with a bodyguard of lies. Not one single American should find this acceptable: https://t.co/uvMfjGfvMe

While it's fun to mock #SmockingGun & the spelling skills of stable genius, here's a key fact: @realDonaldTrump has now moved from saying there is no evidence of collusion to there is no smoking gun. Mueller hasn't yet revealed what he knows & Trump is moving the goalposts again. https://t.co/ooqxr1JxaM
