In order for key elements of the deal to be enshrined into law, MPs will have to vote it into legislation, meaning they could block the EU exit agreement if they wish.

Remoaner MP Nicky Morgan confirmed the government was working on this “concession strategy”.

It’s likely to lead to a showdown in Parliament on the eve of Brexit and could see several amendments put forward in a bid to block or delay the whole thing altogether.

The Remain-backing MPs will no doubt be rubbing their hands with glee at the opportunity to frustrate the will of the people and thwart a full, clean Brexit.
