Make or break for May over Brexit deal


Prime minister, Theresa May is set to present a payment plan to MPs today in a hope to break away the Brexit deadlock.

May hopes to convince Tory Brexiteers and DUP MPs to back her withdrawal deal by resolving Irish backstop concerns, according to the BBC.

The news comes after her historic defeat in the Commons last week. May said she would focus on cross-party talks to get a Brexit deal accepted by Parliament.

She is now reportedly trying to win approval from her own benches, with the government unlikely to win widespread Labour backing.

Downing Street insisted that cross-party talks were continuing, the BBC reported.
