BREXIT VICTORY: May handed KEY concessions – EU source reveals SHOCK Brussels backtracking

The Prime Minister secured Brexit victories on governance and the Irish backstop during her negotiations with Brussels, according to one senior EU diplomat familiar with the talks.

The move towards a UK-wide backstop solution has been accepted by Brussels in order to help Mrs May sell the deal to the Cabinet at home, the source added.

While Sturgeon was using it to press home the message of government investment, the FAI report warned of a knock-on squeeze on funding for other services, calling for an urgent debate on future priorities and suggesting options including sweeping council tax reforms and the controversial possibility of introducing student tuition fees.Late yesterday afternoon, a clear majority of MSPs voted in favour of a second referendum on Brexit, following a Lib Dem amendment to a Holyrood debate on Brexit which urged members to support the campaign for a Peoples Vote.SNP, Green and Lib Dem members supported the call, along with two Labour MSPs, while the rest of the Labour group abstained, in the symbolic vote which was nevertheless the first time the Holyrood Parliament has put its views on a second Brexit vote on record.
