In a stunning move, former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab says he will support the Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement in a fresh vote on Friday.
"I will vote for the motion. I will do so without prejudice ... to achieve two essential outcomes: stave off a longer extension and prevent European elections in May. And I hope the government can more vigorously pursue the reassurance we need on the Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration and make the deal more acceptable to this House."
Raab resigned as Brexit Secretary back in November, saying at the time he could not “in good conscience support the terms proposed for our deal with the EU.”
