It would be a mistake, though, to think it’s gone away. It really hasn’t. So Brexit talks between government ministers and Labour to find a compromise able to win MPs’ backing resumed last week, but expectations of a breakthrough were minimal. Rumours that Theresa May – who still hopes a deal will be ratified in time to avoid the UK taking part in EU elections next month – would table a vote on the key legislation … [Read more...] about Brexit weekly briefing: don’t make mistake of thinking it’s gone away
