Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
'The votes are now there' for Brexit deal, says Jacob Rees-Mogg | The Guardian |

    Rees-Mogg, a close ally of Johnson, who is responsible for legislation in the Commons, made the bold claim on LBC Radio, despite the fact the prime minister is yet to secure a deal with Brussels.

    To win a vote, the prime minister would need the support of almost all Eurosceptics in the Conservative party, as well as most of the former Tories from whom he withdrew the whip and either the DUP or a bloc of Labour MPs.

    Johnson is edging closer to the number he needs, with more prominent Eurosceptics now on board with his plans.
