Ladies and gentlemen: We have a Brexit deal. The scornful, snarky doubters (whoevertheyare) have been proven wrong. Theresa May has done it, Ireland and all. Raise a glass to Her Majesty the Prime Minister and let’s all join in a rousing rendition of “Rule Britannia.” Plucky Albion’s pulled through!

Even assuming she gains the cabinet’s approval on Wednesday without a politically damaging raft of resignations — not a given — Mrs. May faces daunting odds in pushing the compromise plan through Parliament, where it has many opponents….

One influential pro-Brexit lawmaker, Steve Baker, said on Tuesday that about 50 pro-Brexit Conservative lawmakers might oppose Mrs. May’s deal.

Hard-Brexiters swiftly reacted negatively to the prospective deal – and indicated they intended to vote against it if it came to parliament…. Nigel Dodds, the DUP’s Westminster leader, said the deal was not acceptable if it matched what he had heard in leaks over the past few days. His unionist party props up May’s government…. On Tuesday night, the leaders of the four main opposition parties in parliament sent a joint letter to the prime minister demanding that the meaningful vote be subject to amendment, allowing alternative ideas to be considered.

Christ, it really will never end.
