Brexiteers whipped, flights snatched and a late debate in Juncker's private rooms: Theresa May's frantic day

Press quote (The Telegraph)
11 March 2019

By 10.15am Barclay was holding face-to-face talks with the PM at Downing Street as Labour MP Yvette Cooper - the proponent of an amendment threatening to ‘take back control’ of the Brexit process from the Government - was helpfully reminding Mrs May how high the stakes were. Addressing an audience at the Centre for European Reform, she declared that shelving the vote would be a “straight up lie” - not the first time the former minister has accused the PM of being economical with the truth following a similar outburst int he Commons in 2017.
