Brexit deal likened to de­feat in war

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

The Brexit deal ob­tained from Brus­sels by Theresa May is sim­i­lar to con­di­tions that might be im­posed on the de­feated side in a war, Boris Johnson has said.

His com­ments came as Mrs May sent se­nior min­is­ters out around the coun­try to sell her deal ahead of the cru­cial House of Com­mons vote next Tues­day.

With three days of the five-day de­bate com­plete, Press As­so­ci­a­tion anal­y­sis showed that of 163 MPs who have spo­ken, 27 in­di­cated they will back Mrs May’s deal com­pared to 122 – in­clud­ing 29 Tories – who will vote against.

Boris Johnson said the pro­posed deal was like a dik­tat im­posed af­ter a mil­i­tary de­feat.
