Just One Vote ... That's All It Takes ...
Just a few days to go before the critical vote in parliament. Theresa May's Brexit deal will be put to the Westminster elite on Tuesday. Junior ministers were sent out on a roadshow this week. The objective? To convince the party faithful of the merits of the deal. Time well spent? Not really.
A survey of 1,262 Tory members taken on Thursday, suggests 72 per cent reject the deal. They would like their MPs to do the same. Just 26% are in favour. It doesn't look good. Worse still, 62% think the Prime Minister should resign if the vote goes ahead and the deal is lost.
Time and effort would have been better spent dealing with Tory dissidents and the DUP perhaps. Check out the latest update here ...
