Verhofstadt: May not trying to remove backstop

Senior EU MEP Guy Verhofstadt today claimed that Theresa May is not even seeking to replace the backstop and that in meetings today “she assured us there will be a backstop”.

Verhofstadt also attacked the prospect of a No Deal Brexit as “irresponsible” and welcomed Jeremy Corbyn’s push for a permanent EU Customs Union. Now there’s a surprise!

The only place he said the EU was looking to make changes are in the non-legally binding Political Declaration

This is a terrible deal. The UK PM cannot go along with such a stitch-up and Brexiteer MPs surely will not sign off on this.
