Theresa May loses control over Brexit: Mirror Politics morning briefing
[unable to retrieve full-text content]
Theresa May has lost control of Brexit, her Cabinet and her MPs. If that was not apparent before it is now blindingly obvious after yesterday’s farcical scenes . Some form of deal has been struck with the Tory rebels which they were led to believe gives the Commons a meaningful vote in the event of a no deal scenario or if the Prime Minister has failed to negotiate a deal by November 30. The Department for Brexit last night issued a statement saying this was not the case. We shall find out the exact situation early next week when the government tables its revised amendment for consideration by the Lords. It is impossible to see rebels such as Dominic Grieve caving in on this when he and his colleagues know they have the numbers to defeat the Government.
