Diary - a ragged day

 A difficult and fraught day, with a lot of anger aimed at leaked information about the EU withdrawal deal. Although we have not seen the deal in writing, there's enough information to know it's a bad deal for our country and potentially a betrayal of the 17.4 million people who voted to leave.
