London : A draft Brexit deal struck by the UK and the EU looks to be in jeopardy due to opposition from both Leave and Remain supporting MPs.
The UK government and the EU yesterday – November 13 2018 – reached an agreement over after almost two years of negotiations.
Details of the agreement are yet to be released and UK Prime Minister Theresa May is set to hold a special cabinet meeting at 2 P.M today, during which the level of support for the deal will be gauged.
Should the withdrawal agreement be approved by the cabinet, it is likely to meet opposition from all sides of the House of Commons, in particular, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
It is understood the text of the deal includes a plan to keep the UK in the customs union in order to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland the Republic of Ireland.
