'I may be a critic of the PM but he is working hard to get a deal through'
Column by Nick Boles, MP for Grantham and Stamford
This weekend the House of Commons will sit on Saturday (today). This is the first time that has happened in the nine and a half years that I have been an MP. It only happens at times of national crisis.
On Saturday it looks likely that MPs will be asked to vote on the compromise Brexit deal that Prime Minister Boris Johnson has negotiated with the EU. At the time of writing, on Thursday morning, the Democratic Unionists from Northern Ireland are still withholding their support for the proposed deal but I think it is likely that eventually they will get on board.
