Boris Johnson has denounced a mooted Brexit deal with the EU as an ‘absolute stinker’ and urged MPs to reject

At a Brussels summit in October, EU leaders ruled there was not enough progress in Brexit negotiations in order to call an emergency summit this month to finalise a deal.
Christopher Vecchio, an analyst at Daily FX, said: "UK Brexit minister Raab leaves meeting and gives a "thumbs up" - $GBP gets a bump across the board".
On Monday, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said he was "open" to considering proposals for a review mechanism for the backstop but said the outcome of any such review could not involve the United Kingdom deciding on its own to end the backstop.
May is anxious that accepting the deal would lead to a rebellion from the hard-Brexit faction in her party.
During the Brexit briefing, held weekly at Downing Street, senior ministers discussed proposals to ensure the United Kingdom is not indefinitely tied to the European Union via the Northern Ireland "backstop" arrangements.
Brexiteers insist that the United Kingdom must be able to unilaterally end the backstop to avoid the possibility of the European Union keeping Britain bound to its rules forever.
Dublin has insisted it would not accept any unilateral United Kingdom ability to end a Brexit backstop agreement on the Irish border.
The EU has proposed a backstop that would mean Northern Ireland staying in the EU customs union, large parts of the single market and the EU VAT system.
He also shot down a suggestion by Brexit secretary Dominic Raab that any backstop should have a three-month time limit.
Work is continuing on this, he said, adding: "Don't be under any illusions that there remains a significant amount of work to do".
He described the UK as a "divided kingdom", which he said has not helped the negotiation process, adding: "That has made it very hard to come to an agreement". Without an operational backstop there will not be an accord and there will not be a transition period.
Mr Barnier added a backstop arrangement "cannot have an end-date" and "must be applicable unless and until another solution is found".

"Typically, we would be further along with our analysis before announcing anything publicly", Gleicher said in the statement . Twitter said Saturday it deleted a "series of accounts" that attempted to share disinformation without giving a number.
The Sunday Times report said preparations for a final Brexit deal were "far more advanced than previously disclosed" and that May's agreement would satisfy both remain-voting Tories and the hardline Eurosceptics within her party.
Mr Matheson, speaking in Treasury questions, said: 'The Government's own figures demonstrate between a 2% and 8% hit on the broader economy on Brexit, so isn't it the case that there is no form of Brexit that won't have a massive impact on the public finances and therefore on public services?'
Donaldson said that he could not understand why the Irish government "seems so intent on this course".
Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell has signalled his party will vote against the United Kingdom being in an effective customs union with the EU for a temporary period after Brexit.
He told the BBC: "I can't see it because I think it would be the worst of all worlds".
That's the type of statement that pisses me off in the locker room as a defensive player and we gotta have a conversation. Things aren't going well for the New York Jets and Bart Scott has had just about enough of Todd Bowles' excuses.
Jackson, it doesn't erase the fact that her career was purposefully stalled by a man who felt she didn't properly grovel to him. We have a long long way to go and trust me, we wouldn't have been able to do this without you.
