It’s an unusual day when the Prime Minister has to be asked if he lied to the Queen. “Absolutely not” was Boris Johnson’s answer. The question was put after a Scottish Court ruled that he had not given his true reasons for suspending parliament.
Mr Johnson also said he could see the rough “landing space” for a Brexit deal. Some in Westminster think that could mean a new compromise on the Northern Ireland backstop and a reworked deal getting through the Commons with the help of Brexit supporting Labour MPs.
