BREAKING: U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will say in a speech on Monday that blocking Brexit is more likely than leaving the EU without a deal https://t.co/LbtZRL9TFl

The verdict of the referendum was clear – the people of the UK want our future to be outside the European Union. So my message to Parliament is simple: it's time to forget the games and do what is right for our country.https://t.co/nlZq1ZmRAu

Brexit going ahead on 29 March now seen as highly unlikely.
There’s no majority in Parliament or the country for May’s bad deal.
And the majority of people now want to #Remain.

Meanwhile Johnson, Davis, Raab, Patel – 12 former ministers in total write an open letter to all Tory MPs urging them to vote it down “it will not lead to no Brexit or to an early GE” pic.twitter.com/ljal1kWx9t

This is not even naiveity. David Davis took a beating from EU negotiators for two years as Brexit Secretary.
This is a shameless attempt to con the public into economic suicide. It's a falsehood that is Trumpian in temerity and scale. https://t.co/j72CGccFtL

“For a group who use the term ‘snowflake’ Brexiters really are a touchy lot. A set of fireworks, a single joke in a Doctor Who episode, and now a HSBC ad, all apparently Brexit snubs and causing upset." https://t.co/Jv7C9QC8RP

Just as a final note before the worst week of Brexit to date commences: aside from only trusting your own eyes and what you see live in Parliament TV, it’s going to be prudent to watch the betting odds. No deal is right down to 3/1 currently.

The first paragraph of the historic @nytimes lead story: "So it has come to this: The president of the United States was asked over the weekend whether he is a Russian agent. And he refused to directly answer." https://t.co/xnPLiFTimZ @peterbakernyt

I can’t think of anything that would exonerate Trump aside from the difficulty of grasping what once would have seemed unimaginable: that a president of the United States could actually have been compromised by a hostile foreign power.

The Clinton campaign put out a 6 minute video detailing Trump's alleged Russian ties a month before the election. Interesting to revisit in light of recent reports. pic.twitter.com/Xje4lvo3Op

Meanwhile, the government is still shut down…
In a constitutional republic: A president who denied pay to 800,000 federal workers in order to make a political point would be considered to be in absolute violation of his oath of office. A responsible Congress would impeach and remove him.https://t.co/oDICMsBZlv

I suspect Mulvaney’s tenure as Acting Chief of Staff will soon come to an end, as Trump throws him under the bus and blames him for Trump’s forthcoming defeat on the shutdown. Wouldn’t be surprised if Trump brings over Whitaker as COS if Barr’s confirmed. https://t.co/ptxXZNbLKp

John Bolton is a lunatic.@realdonaldtrump is unstable.
Congress needs to amend the War Powers Act to clearly prohibit a first strike against any foreign country without Congressional approval.https://t.co/AmPwM8a1eP
