(Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May briefed her inner Cabinet on Thursday evening that a historic Brexit deal was close, the Financial Times reported on Thursday.

 

Cabinet ministers briefed on the Brexit talks said the issue of the Irish backstop was close to being settled, the FT said.

 

The paper quoted an official close to the Brexit talks as saying May never brings the Cabinet together to tell them recent developments and so "it feels to me like the deal is practically done."

 

The FT said two Eurosceptic Cabinet ministers, Andrea Leadsom, leader of the Commons, and Esther McVey, work and pensions secretary, are opposed to the plan and could potentially quit.

 

"They are going to talk a lot over the weekend and consider what they will live with and what they will walk over," the FT quoted one official close to Eurosceptic Cabinet ministers as saying of Leadsom and McVey.

 

On the other hand, May is expecting support from her inner Cabinet, including two prominent Brexiters : environment secretary Michael Gove and Brexit secretary Dominic Raab, the FT said.

The two with no backbone at all.  Of course they will go along with May, what else would you expect from those two?

 

Everyone is tired of Brexit now.  I think it is a case of just how many concessions can May get the Brexiteers to agree to.  It is all well and good to say that a deal is close, but will people accept the deal when/if it is agreed with the EU?

 

They have now started constructing an enormous lorry park as part of the M20 near Dover to deal with the huge backlog of lorries should there be a no-deal Brexit.  More project fear? Maybe, or are the government trying desperately to pre-empt a no deal disaster?

Great. Very old geezer who has 10, max 15 years left, is commenting how the future generations should live their lives and how restricted their lives should be.. This old geezer, whose father perhaps did great things, while he never did. 

 

Typical Brexiter.

Or you could described him as someone that has paid into the European Project for the past 43 years, into a project  and now wants out for anyone that is interested here is a full set of the various leaftlets that were produced for the 1975 referendum

not everyone received these leaflets as there was no internet at that time 

This collection shows some of the leaflets that were handed out and delivered to households during the weeks and months leading up to the day of the referendum.
