Thursday 28th March 2019

PM Theresa May has managed to gain some more support for her Brexit proposal, but we aren’t any clearer as to what will happen.

Her pledge has brought some MP’s on-side, such as ex-foreign secretary Boris Johnson.

Boris Johnson has demonstrated that his loyalty is to the top job, not the deal itself. His support for the PM’s proposal is solely resting on the fact that she will resign, allowing him to mount a challenge for the leadership of the conservative party.

But challenges remain for the PM after Northern Ireland’s DUP, who she relies on for support, said it would not back the deal because of the Irish backstop.

Meanwhile, none of eight alternative Brexit proposals brought by MPs secured backing in a series of Commons votes.
