"We are still not witnessing the state of the party, not the country."
"It's like in the last days of Rome." "It's chaos."
Outside, the government is ready to send a letter to the European Union before the talks in Brussels sometime tomorrow, with the final project likely to be completed in the morning by the Prime Minister and
The letter will explain what kind of delay the government is seeking in the Brexit process
and the next steps in our departure were the subject of a 90-minute discussion this morning.
