The best deal possible has been found for the British departure from the European Union, both the British prime minister and EU leaders have said, but will the withdrawal agreement be approved by London?
The Westminster parliament is conflicted, and even though Prime Minister Theresa May has a majority government, there is no guarantee that her deal with Brussels, the de facto capital of the EU, will pass through the House.
