Brexit news LIVE: Boris Johnson’s deal could be passed TODAY as PM faces showdown against remainer Bercow

0


BORIS Johnson’s Brexit deal is at the mercy of John Bercow today with the Speaker expected to block a Commons vote.

The PM wants a vote after a Remainer plot ruined his plans on Saturday and forced him to seek a Brexit extension from the EU.

But Mr Bercow has warned that he could oppose it, arguing that the deal has already been debated in the Commons.

It comes after Sir Oliver Letwin torpedoed Mr Johnson’s hopes of getting agreement approved MPs by successfully tabling an amendment.

A vote on the Letwin amendment took place on Saturday, but a vote on Boris’ deal itself didn’t happen after Tory MPs stormed out of the chamber.

No10 warned they would pull the vote if he allows more wrecking amendments like at the weekend.
