“And before the ink is dry, the Conservative Party will tear into what little Theresa May has been able to agree.
"The Prime Minister now faces a defeat in Parliament, as a majority will be hard or impossible to secure for what she has come up with.
"A People’s Vote is now the only way to escape from this mess."
