A new Brexit divide is driving the UK to a second vote

A new Brexit divide is driving the UK to a second vote There is a new division in British politics. The key split may no longer be between Remainers and Leavers. It is now between the purists and the pragmatists ; between those who believe Brexit is going to change everything and those who are still trying to get back to business as usual; between those who still believe there is some kind of Brexit fix and those who do not want to find one. On one side we have the leaderships of the two main parties, both of which are battling their own members and MPs to cobble together a Brexit compromise in the flawed belief that this will allow them to move on to other issues.

The prime minister has reportedly been told she has until 16:00 (BST) on Wednesday to announce her plans.
