"Of course I talk to colleagues across Parliament and those conversations always remind me of how deeply MPs think about their responsibilities, and I know many are reflecting hard about the deal that's looming and how they will respond to it".

"It has become increasingly clear to me that the withdrawal agreement, which is being finalized in Brussels and Whitehall even as I write, will be a awful mistake", said Jo Johnson, who was a transport minister in the government.

"I mean volley to the left of the them, volley to right of them, and the Prime Minister charges on into the valley of death".

"But it's obviously for each of them to work out how best to respond to those questions".

He said it would be a democratic travesty not to go back to the people for another vote.

He said the public should be given the chance to vote again on whether they want Brexit, and if so whether they accept what is on offer or choose to leave without a deal.

With that said , the series will take place before the events of that film and will focus on the formative years of the Rebellion. In his own statement , Luna said that a TV series format would allow him to "explore this character more deeply".

"It has become increasingly clear to me that the withdrawal agreement, which is being finalised in Brussels and Whitehall even as I write, will be a bad mistake", he said.

Robin Walker told the Funke group of newspapers that Brexit negotiations were progressing in a constructive manner and that there was agreement on more than 95 percent of the deal.

In a stinging resignation statement that caught Westminster off guard, Mr Johnson showed he also shares his brother's love of florid language as he demanded a second Brexit referendum because Prime Minister Theresa May was leading the country towards a "terrible mistake".

This week, International Trade Secretary Mr Fox openly challenged Mrs May over the Irish border backstop.

The longer-term weakness in vehicle production in part reflects softer growth in domestic demand, at a time when household real incomes have been squeezed, the ONS said.

He told the Today programme: "My basic disagreement with Jo is about the need for a second referendum". That needs to be an issue for a sovereign British government to determine'.
