Fishing for Leave, a spin-off of the Leave Means Leave campaign, tweeted that they had "never thought we'd agree with Gina Miller".

They said that they were in agreement Johnson's deal was "basically the May deal" - and was just as "dire" in what it proposed.

The anti-Brexit campaigner had been discussing the deal with a "brilliant lawyer" who pointed out that it was "the May deal with about six changes" to the political declaration.

In response Fishing for Leave said: "Never thought we'd agree @thatginamiller but correct".

They added: "Nothing has changed".

It follows Brexiteer Nigel Farage complaining that the Brexit extension could be taken away - a measure he saw as more favourable than leaving on Johnson's deal.
