Britain, EU Reach New Brexit Deal

The EU and UK negotiating teams on Thursday agreed to a new Brexit deal after last-ditch talks ahead of a crucial leaders' summit in Brussels.

The UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted: “We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control – now parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment.”

Leaders of both the UK and European parliaments are now expected to give their political approval to the deal.

However, the Democratic Unionist Party is still not on board with the deal.

Immediately complicating matters was Johnson's Northern Irish government allies which didn't waste a minute to say they could not back the outline deal because of provisions for the Irish border.

With the DUP refusing to give its backing, there remains little hope that the deal will pass through the British parliament unless Johnson is able to convince both a significant number of Labour MPs and a chunk of the 21 MPs whose whip as Conservatives was removed last month.
