John Rentoul of the Independent on the EU Deal

If you only read one piece in the press this weekend about Theresa May's deal with the EU, I recommend that it should be John Rentoul's article in the Independent,

"Michael Gove is waving the white flag over Brexit - but it's not for the reason you would think."

A lot of really good points in the article but here is the key quote.


"This is a big moment for both ends of the Brexit spectrum. For hard Remainers, this week’s agreement is a disaster, because it means the small chance of stopping Brexit has just got smaller. And for the cavalier Leavers it was the moment they could no longer avoid meeting reality."
