Hammond Asks For Assurances From Boris

FORMER Chancellor Philip Hammond has sensationally sent a letter to Boris Johnson seeking assurances ahead of tomorrow's crunch SO24 Brexit vote.

Hammond has asked Boris:

• What steps have been taken since his visit to Berlin to set out alternatives to the backstop
• To confirm revisions to the backstop
• To set out what specific negotiation meetings have taken place between the EU and UK since Berlin.
• Who represented the UK at the meetings
• What progress has been achieved in the meetings
Hammond wants a response by 2:30pm tomorrow when Parliament reconvenes.

TBG thinks Hammond and his 21 coconspirators are trying to undermine the Prime Minister.

Cabinet now due to meet and 5:00pm and MPs at 6:00pm. 22 Tory MPs may be noticeable by their absence!
