Mind it’s kicking off in Parliament Square. Instead of that sad EU fanatic with the ‘brexit, is it worth it’ placards, you know the guy whose probably never had meaningful employment in his life? Well it’s a lot more intense down there. It’s kicking off! Some chanting to the tune of ‘achy breaky heart’ by Bill Rae Cyrus from what it sound like!
My bold. She hasn't said that. She has said that she understands the concern by many of her HoP colleagues over the open ended nature of the backstop in the unlikely event it is triggered. She has said she will go back to the EU Council and Commission to see if further assurances and clarification can be obtained. Perhaps you did not see the questions session after her statement to the House? If further negotiations are forthcoming then that will be a bonus, but she is not going back to the EU to try and reopen negotiations on the present agreement.
