Morning folks 👋,
Cabinet ministers will urge *Theresa May* to abandon *cross-party Brexit talks* with *Labour* today as the PM edges towards giving MPs ‘definitive votes’. 🗳
It is understood that key figures within the Cabinet are reluctant to see talks with *Labour* go any further as they wish to avoid tying the UK to a *customs union*. In place of cross-party talks, Mrs May will consider holding a series of ‘definitive votes’ on different Brexit options.
But are cross-party talks completely dead in the water? 🤷♀Apparently not. Mrs May’s advisor *Olly Robbins* is heading to Brussels to discuss how the political declaration could be changed in the event of a deal with *Labour*.
That trip, however, could prove redundant if Cabinet ministers do indeed torpedo talks with Labour.
So, who, if anyone, can break the Brexit deadlock? 🤔 *Tim Stanley* believes that it’s time for the Tories to send for *Boris*: http://bit.ly/2YskAMc
