Word around Westminster is that Boris Johnson is now backing Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal deal.
Conservative Party MP Zac Goldsmith tells CNN:
"Boris is no fan of the deal, but he recognises as we all must that the choice is now clear. It’s this deal or it’s years of paralysis, division, chaos and ultimately the slow death of Brexit. His intervention might just be the thing that rescues Brexit."
Having Johnson, the most prominent Conservative Leave campaigner and staunch critic of the deal (Johnson resigned from the cabinet over May's Brexit plans) might just be enough to get the deal over line, should it come back to the House of Commons this week. This is a big win for May.
Another Conservative MP, Conor Burns, also tweeted that Johnson was "absolutely right telling MPs that palpable risk of losing Brexit altogether with the chance of change in the next phase means we have little choice but to vote for the Withdrawal Agreement."
