The battle for Brexit is back on

Parliament flexed its muscles tonight – and isn’t it glorious?

Don’t listen to the ministers who will want to spin this differently, this is hugely significant.

Theresa May now has to go to Brussels on the back of the first defeat she has suffered on her own business in the House of Commons.

And what it means is clear: Remainers – on all sides of the House – now have something to build on.

Expect the rebels to be emboldened. They have had an impact and although none will have felt 100% comfortable voting against their own party they will take comfort in doing what was right. This is why they were elected in the first place – to make tough choices in the country’s best interest.

The fact the Government would prefer the House of Commons not to have a final vote on the Brexit deal is an affront to democracy. It stinks.

This is what “taking back control” really feels like. And now the fight really begins.

Remainers have been on the ropes – now they are back and swinging.
