It is a huge day for British politics as MPs will have their say on whether it is deal or no deal on Brexit. MPs will vote later today, January 15, in the House of Commons on whether to approve the withdrawal agreement that Theresa May has brokered with the European Union. The Prime Minister's deal will see Britain pay a divorce bill of £39 billion, establish a transition period until 2021 to help prepare the country for Brexit and arrangements for a safety net to prevent a hard border in Ireland.
