B-Day – The IRA puts its oar in as the vote in the Commons looms closer


This week Theresa May’s dealings with the EU on the Brexit Deal will be put to the lithmus test of the House of Commons where they are widely expected to be defeated. In spite of a late night agreement cobbled with EU President Juncker, May seems to still lack the support needed in Westminster and, just as crucially, Labour now seem to be endorsing a second referendum. To further complicate matters, the IRA, long dormant after the historic Good Friday Agreement, has now claimed it is behind the parcel bombs found in London and Glasgow last week. With the specter of terrorism raising its ugly head again in the shadow of the Irish Backstop, this is what this week’s politics in the UK will be about.
