It’s with a decided sense of déjà vu that I report that tomorrow is absolutely the crunch day for Brexit. Reports from Strasbourg tonight are suggesting that Theresa May has managed to win some concessions on the vexed question of the Irish backstop, though it should be noted that the source of the more optimistic briefings is the UK government; the EU are rather more downbeat.

As I write the actual text of whatever has been agreed has not been released; a press conference is apparently imminent. It’s unlikely that anything short of a complete cave-in by Brussels would satisfy the more extreme Brexiteers in the Tory party though, so the chances of the vote tomorrow being the final word on the matter seem slim.
