After winning Brexit compromise, UK's pro-EU rebels fear betrayal

That supposedly, according to BBC's Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg, drew a colorful response from a pro-EU Tory rebel: "If she f**ks us, she's f**ked".

Parliament will vote on another series of so called "Brexit wrecking" amendments later on Tuesday, some of which seek to commit the government to remaining a member of the EU single market and "a customs union", while another aims to steer the United Kingdom toward membership of the European Economic Area.

- Vote kicks threat to government stability out into the long grass again.

They believe that if there is no Brexit deal by the end of November, the government must clear its next course of action with MPs.

The Government's compromise is that a minister would come to the House within 28 days of a deal being rejected to tell MPs what will happen next, but an amendment tabled by former attorney general Dominic Grieve would insist on a binding Commons motion.

Tory Remainers and Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer, debating the Brexit bill for a second day in the Commons, said the inclusion of the Northern Ireland amendment meant the only option was to now "reproduce the customs union and the single market". The "meaningful vote" amendment, which would assert Parliament's authority over the negotiations and effectively hand control to MPs, still represents an opportunity to turn the whole process on its head.

However, Devon Tory Sarah Wollaston signalled that she would back Mr Grieve's amendment.

Two of the putative rebels, Anna Soubry and Heidi Allen, quickly said that did not match their recollection of what had been promised, with Soubry urging the government to "sort it please".

The battle now moves to the House of Lords, where the government will formally reveal how much it has conceded in the wording of a new amendment expected on Monday or Tuesday.

The government will face an nearly certain defeat if it now reneges on a promise to give MPs more of a say over the final Brexit deal.

The solicitor general, Robert Buckland, who intervened from the dispatch box to offer the last-minute concessions that led to the would-be rebels' meeting with the prime minister, suggested that there would be no further compromise on clause C, contrary to what MPs say they were told.

- PM avoids damaging "meaningful vote" defeat through new concessions.

Traders will stay tuned into Brexit noise where the UK Prime Minister faces a series of challenging parliamentary votes on her plan to leave the customs union and single market after Brexit, but it will soon be time for the European Central Bank and FOMC.
