Theresa May has told EU leaders the withdrawal deal they have negotiated with the UK is “at risk”, if MPs’ concerns cannot be addressed. The PM, who delayed a Commons vote on the deal this week in anticipation of a heavy defeat, said she still believed it “can be passed”. But she urged EU leaders to work with her to “change the perception” of the controversial “backstop” plan. Mrs May won a confidence vote brought by MPs unhappy with her Brexit policy.
