High anxiety in Brussels: Will Brexit deal be clinched?

  High anxiety in Brussels: Will Brexit deal be clinched? BRUSSELS (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his 27 counterparts from across the European Union were converging on Brussels on Thursday for a summit they hope will finally lay to rest the acrimony and frustration of a three-year divorce fight. Yet even before dawn though, Johnson already had to deal with a serious setback when his Northern Irish government allies said they would not back his compromise proposals. The prime minister needs all the support he can get to push any deal past a deeply divided parliament.It only added to the high anxiety that reigned on Thursday morning, with the last outstanding issues of the divorce papers still unclear.

In the footage, Mr Rees-Mogg and his son are followed for several minutes through the Inner London borough as anti-Brexit protesters shout loud abuse.

It came after the Commons yesterday voted 322 to 306 in favour of an amendment postponing a decision on the Prime Minister's deal.

The vote activates the Benn Act - a Remainer law that compels him to send a letter tonight asking Brussels for a delay.

Afterwards Mr Rees-Mogg announced the government was planning to give MPs a fresh chance to have a 'meaningful vote' on the deal hammered out by Mr Johnson with Brussels on Monday.

Liberal Democrats leader Jo Swinson said of the abuse directed at Jacob Rees-Mogg: 'This is not acceptable. Everyone has a right to their opinion.

'In these charged times, it's even more important that we should disagree well with one another - never resort to intimidation or yelling abuse. Hope Jacob, and especially his young son, are OK.'

After the encounter, Mrs Leadsom tweeted: 'Thank goodness for our superb police. Just walked home safely from House of Commons with their protection - why do the so called "People's Vote" protesters think it's ok to abuse, intimidate and scream in the face of someone they don't agree with?

While Ian Kirk said: 'He has a child with him. Have these people no shame?'

And Chris Rose commented: 'I would expect grown up people to not behave a certain way around children, particularly if they're as "peaceful" as they claim to be.'

The scenes came following confusion over whether the government will now try to re-run the 'meaningful' vote on the deal on Monday.

Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg announced the move in the aftermath of the showdown yesterday afternoon.

His announcement prompted dismay among opposition MPs, while Speaker John Bercow expressed his unhappiness with the situation.

Mr Bercow complained he had been 'blindsided' and suggested he might rule it out of order. The Commons Speaker said he was expecting ministers to bring forward legislation to secure support for their deal, but expressed surprise at the plan to table a motion.

He outlined that he would consider the matter over the weekend before making a ruling on Monday.

Yesterday was not the first time Mr Rees-Mogg and his children have been subjected to abuse.

In September last year, class 'activists' launched a sickening tirade at his children – including his six-year-old son – telling them their father is a 'totally horrible person'.

The three youngsters stood stunned while their parents tried to usher them inside, but they still heard the full bullying rant demanding to be told how much the family's long serving nanny is paid.

Activist Ian Bone, wearing a flat cap and leaning on a stick, was filmed shouting: 'Your daddy won't answer the question.

'Your daddy is a totally horrible person. A lot of people don't like your daddy, you know that. No he's probably not told you about that.'

The grandfather and father-of-five added: 'A lot of people hate him.'

The encounter involving the Rees-Mogg's nanny Veronica Crook - who has been with the family for decades and cared for the MP when he was a boy - lasted several minutes.

It was filmed by left wing activist group Class War and posted on their Facebook page.
