Downing Street has now officially confirmed what the prime minister told MPs just now. It is pretty striking stuff.
“This has been a testing time for our country and our party,” she said.
“We’re nearly there. We’re almost ready to start a new chapter and build that brighter future. “But before we can do that, we have to finish the job in hand.
“I have heard very clearly the mood of the parliamentary party. I know there is a desire for a new approach – and new leadership – in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations – and I won’t stand in the way of that.”
“I know some people are worried that if you vote for the Withdrawal Agreement, I will take that as a mandate to rush on into phase two without the debate we need to have. I won’t – I hear what you are saying.
“But we need to get the deal through and deliver Brexit.”
