Leaked Brussels note on draft Brexit deal piles pressure on May

After nearly five hours of behind-closed doors discussions, the PM declared that she will press ahead with her controversial plan. Speaking on the steps of Downing Street (pictured), she said the debate had been 'long and impassioned'. 'The collective decision of Cabinet was that the government should agree the draft Withdrawal Agreement and the outline political declaration,' Mrs May said. ‘I firmly believe with my head and heart that this decisive choice is in the best interests of the entire UK.’ Mrs May's reference to a 'collective' decision rather than a unanimous one immediately raised eyebrows - but she appears to have avoided resignations by senior ministers over the draft blueprint thrashed out with Brussels. Aid Secretary Penny Mordaunt, among those closest to the edge, is believed to have demanded assurances from the premier on key points. Scottish Secretary David Mundell had also emerged as a potential risk after he signed a letter warning against giving away fishing rights as part of the agreement, but tonight confirmed that he was staying in the tent. Michael Gove (inset top), Liam Fox and Jeremy Hunt (pictured right) looked grim faced as they left No10 tonight. The apparent victory for the PM could be only temporary respite, as she faces an even bigger task to get the measures through Parliament amid a massive mutiny from Tory backbenchers and the DUP, and Labour opposition. 

Can Theresa May win a vote on her Brexit deal?

Theresa May has secured her deal in Brussels but her fight to get it actually in place in time for Brexit day is just beginning. If the Cabinet agrees to the deal the biggest hurdle will be the 'meaningful vote' on the plans in Parliament. This is expected to take place in December to ensure the deal is over its biggest hurdle before the end of the year. The Prime Minister needs at least 318 votes in the Commons if all 650 MPs turns up - but can probably only be confident of around 230 votes. To win, Mrs May will need to get back around half of the 80 hardcore Tory Brexiteer rebels and secure the support of the 10 DUP MPs.
