🇪🇺🤝🇬🇧 Where there is a will, there is a #deal – we have one! It’s a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK and it is testament to our commitment to find solutions. I recommend that #EUCO endorses this deal. pic.twitter.com/7AfKyCZ6k9

We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control — now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment #GetBrexitDone #TakeBackControl

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson says: “The fight to stop Brexit is far from over.
“Boris Johnson’s deal would be bad for our economy, bad for our public services, and bad for our environment.
“The next few days will set the direction of our country for generations, and I am more determined than ever to stop Brexit.
“When this deal comes to parliament we will use every possible opportunity to give the public a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal that includes the option to remain in the EU.”
