Fears of no Brexit drive hardliners to Theresa May’s side

Political Editor

They’ve said no – emphatically and twice – to Theresa May’s Brexit deal, but tomorrow afternoon MPs will have the chance to say what sort of Brexit deal they do want.

A group of backbench MPs has taken control of Parliament’s agenda and will make the Commons vote on a series of indicative votes.

They could include cancelling Brexit altogether or a much softer Brexit.

There are signs tonight that faced with that prospect some Tory Brexiteers have decided to back Theresa May’s deal after all.

They might yet get a third vote on it this week.
