Former prime minister David Cameron says he is backing Theresa May in her bid to solve the Brexit problem.
With just over 24-hours until the Commons vote on her Brexit deal, she recognised she had no chance of passing it and delayed it. The prime minister promised Tory MPs new guarantees on the time-limited nature of the Irish backstop - but the Europeans have been perfectly clear they do not intend to reopen negotiations.
The PM said the vote had been 'deferred' until she had been back to Brussels for more talks.
Today’s ruling by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) found that the UK could unilaterally decide to revoke Article 50 if it wanted to. It means we can stay in the EU on our current terms - including the rebate and guarantees against the euro. It means that we do not need the agreement of other member states.
A march led by far right figurehead Tommy Robinson was "vastly" outnumbered by counter-demonstrators, organisers said.
The prime minister is battling to persuade MPs to back her Brexit withdrawal agreement ahead of Tuesday's historic vote.

Theresa May’s under-fire Brexit deal is the preferred option in only two parliamentary constituencies, while some 600 seats would support remaining in the EU, according to a new poll.
At 8am on Monday morning the European Court of Justice will give its judgment in a case I brought, along with six Scottish parliamentarians. The issue is whether we can revoke the Article 50 notice - whether European law permits us to, if you like, cancel Brexit. On Tuesday, the advocate general delivered what might fairly be described as a preliminary ruling - persuasive but not binding upon the court.
Dominic Grieve’s amendment ensuring a parliamentary voice on Brexit is already being challenged by Brexiters. What they are proposing goes against the basic principle of parliamentary democracy and could trigger the most severe constitutional crisis of our lifetimes. It states that any provision of Section 13 of the European Union Withdrawal Act will not be subject to the provisions of Standing Order 24B and at this point you’ll fall asleep.
When Theresa May rose to her feet to finally open the Commons debate on her Brexit deal this evening, she had just been defeated in three votes, one after another, in a punishing moment of political humiliation. The government had tried to use a delay-gambit to fight off a motion branding it in contempt of parliament. It began because May refused to publish the legal advice on her Brexit deal.
MPs are therefore gearing up to stop the government taking Britain over the cliff edge. The government has gone out of its way to try to make that impossible. It says that if May’s deal is voted down a minister has 21 days to go the Commons and say what the government plans to do.
The prime minister also told This Morning she is "keen" to debate Jeremy Corbyn, but perhaps not on ITV.
Last week at full Council Assembly, for the first time as elected members, we voted against the position adopted by the Labour group. The topic which caused this fracture, predictably enough, was Brexit. Rather than restating Labour’s ‘six texts’, we chose to support a clear call for a People’s Vote.
