Theresa May under fire new Brexit plan
The Prime minister will present her new Brexit plan to Parliament later today outlining the changes to the Withdrawal Agreement Bill.
Several senior Tories are asking for a rule change to allow a no-confidence vote in her leadership.
Labour MPs have also criticized the PM’s new plan.
Shadow Brexit secretary, Sir Keir Starmer, maintains that this new offer is ‘too weak’.
The Brexit package that the Prime Minister has put forward is too weak to succeed.
The reaction to it from MPs across Parliament confirms my concern that it is undeliverable. She should admit defeat and pull the vote. pic.twitter.com/PGiZIcmRbL

The incident occurred yesterday evening, at about 19.50 BST, when the man was crossing Parish Lane in Penge and was almost hit by a silver vehicle.

After the assault, the attacker drove off leaving the man unconcious.
The victim suffered injuries including a broken wrist, nose and cheekbone.
The suspect is described as a man in his 40’s who also had a female passenger in the car.
