Speaking at the Centre for European Reform, Ms Cooper said: “There are rumours that the prime minister will pull the vote tomorrow and then pull the vote on Wednesday and Thursday too. “Whatever she does tomorrow, I don’t think she will pull the votes on no-deal and extending Article 50. She gave me her word, she gave parliament her word – I don’t believe the prime minister would straight-up lie on something so important as this.”
