Brexit: UK and EU 'agree text' of draft withdrawal agreement

Theresa May is speaking to senior ministers one-to-one ahead of a special cabinet on Wednesday.

May can no longer delay her bunfight with Tory Brexiters

The PM hopes to secure cabinet support for her Brexit plan, but tougher challenges lie ahead

In the 16 months since she arrived in Downing Street, Theresa May has become adept at kicking the Brexit can down the road – postponing the inevitable confrontation with the Tory right wing, and her intransigent DUP bedfellows.

She can delay no longer. Key cabinet ministers were summoned to No 10 on Tuesday night, and a reading room was set up for them to pore over what May’s deputy, David Lidington, last week called the “product”.

Brexit deal: Labour, Tory hard-Brexiters and DUP line up against May – Politics live

Ministers invited to read document at No 10 this evening ahead of crunch Wednesday cabinet meeting

My colleague, Peter Walker, is tweeting from a second referendum rally in Westminster he describes as “half rock concert half evangelical church meeting”.

Positively evangelical scenes here at Westminster central hall where the massed forces of People’s Vote & Best for Britain - ie the remainiac ultras - have gathered a *big* crowd to call for a second referendum.

We are promised speeches from the usual MPs you might expect, plus new remain hero Jo Johnson and an unnamed “special guest”. Gina Miller? Who knows.

Either way, it’s a very big crowd for a political event on a Tuesday. Yes, we’re in central London, which is strongly remain, but it’s a sizeable hall and is totally packed. Including the balconies.

The huge slogans and the white T-shirted faithful sat like a choir on the stage does give the event the slight feel of a revivalist church meeting.

In reply to my tweets about this remain-fest, one disgruntled Brexiter has replied that those attending can all “emigrate to Brussels” if they want, a sentiment which I fear misses a key point about Brexit.

This rally for a second referendum is half rock concert half evangelical church meeting. Very high production values.

The Remain-supporting London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, said is yet another prominent figure to criticise the terms to which Theresa May is thought to have agreed, saying they would represent a “bad deal for Britain which risks damaging jobs and growth for the next generation”. He said:

Cabinet ministers must now put aside their personal interests and ambitions and do what’s in the national interest. MPs should not be supporting an agreement that damages our public services and makes it harder for our children and grandchildren.

This deal still needs to be agreed by the cabinet, approved by Parliament and ratified by the EU. It’s clearer than ever that the British public must now be given a say on the terms of the final deal – with staying in the European Union an option on the ballot paper.
