Boris Johnson's Brexit plan faced a new threat on Sunday night as Labour declared that it would seek the backing of rebel Tories and the DUP.

As both sides sought to gather parliamentary support after Saturday’s vote to force Johnson to seek a new delay to the UK’s departure from the European Union, Sir Keir Starmer, the shadow Brexit secretary, said Labour was prepared to talk to the prime minister’s former allies in the Democratic Unionist party (DUP) about forging a better deal.

The news raises the prospect that a new parliamentary alliance could form at the 11th hour – forcing the government into a softer departure from the EU or a confirmatory vote on whether to leave at all.

First of all our wonderfully impartial speaker has to decide whether or not to allow the goverment to present its bill to the house. The expectation this morning is that he won't.

As expected, the impartial speaker sided with remoaners (for a change) and denied the government a meaningful vote on the Withdrawal Agreement Bill that's been negotiated. Remoaners will now seek to impose a second referendum and/or a customs union to undo the largest democratic vote my country has seen.

I think he's the Westminster system equivalent to a Parliamentarian. That's the rules man in our system.

Speaker of the House is meant to act non partisan and make sure things are discussed properly.

John Bercow is the best part of British politics.
