EU will not grant any further extension, says Juncker, implying MPs must choose between this deal and no deal
But, I expect the EU to be communicating through Remain channels the outcome that they will tolerate, which will include the news that Steiner won't be coming....Saturday is going to be very interesting. I wonder how many are going to be voting against, just to do away with this or any other deal. Remaining seems to be the way - regardless of the EU referendum result! I just wonder if any of those demanding a referendum will actually respect the result - Lib Dems excepted of course as they have already stated they would only accept a full remain result. Very democratic that is(n't)
Fake news, Baggy. Educate yourself.Concessions that Boris Johnson himself railed against some months ago, as the deal would break away NI from the rest of the UK?
It's a rehash. Don't kid yourselves that Boris has achieved anything that pmtm couldn't have. The difference is Boris Johnson doesn't have anyone stabbing him in the back in cabinet
the Guardian hedging its bets eh...There you have it

Remainer head explosions begin.
It's actually something from the Good Friday agreement.The argument put forward by the EU was that the DUP by aligning with other Unionists parties are able to veto anything that goes before Storment even as a minority.
BoJo is asking the EU27 to say "This is the deal, take it or leave it, there will be no extension granted", which means no letter will be needed asking for one if the deal is rejected.I am of course no lawyer but I don't understand how this can be the case:
Section 1 obliges the Prime Minister to request an extension to the Article 50 negotiating period for the purpose of negotiating a withdrawal agreement, unless the House of Commons has passed a motion which either approves a withdrawal agreement or approves departure without a deal, and the House of Lords has debated the same motion. If such a motion is not approved, the Prime Minister is obliged to make the request no later than 19 October 2019.
Short-selling: can hedge funds make a fortune from no-deal Brexit?Hedge fund millionaires backing Boris Johnson will make a killing from a no-deal Brexit, according to the former chancellor Philip Hammond. The claim is these “short sellers” are betting on big falls in share prices and the value of sterling in what critics say is a classic example of “disaster capitalism”.
