I’m very confident “When I got this job everybody was saying there can be absolutely no change to the Withdrawal Agreement, the backstop was immutable, the arrangements by which the UK was kept locked into the EU forever, they said no-one could change that “They have already moved off that and, as you know, there’s a very good conversation going on about how to address the issues of the Northern Irish border “A huge amount of progress is being made.” While the PM is due to meet the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier during his visit to Luxembourg on Monday But, Downing Street has warned onlookers there will not be a “big breakthrough” moment in Boris’s bid to get a deal with the bloc It comes as research by Opinium suggested the Tories have increased their poll lead to 12 points above Labour The pollsters put the Conservatives on 37%, with Labour on 25%, the Liberal Democrats on 16% and the Brexit Party on 13%
