NEW: Dominic Grieve’s ‘meaningful vote’ amendment as tabled in the Lords by Lord Hailsham. Be in no doubt- if the Govt renege on their promise to adopt its principles, this will pass in the Lords on Monday and we’ll have the numbers to pass it in the Commons afterwards #Simples

2. Who runs the country? A PM taken hostage by her hard right or Parliament?
David Davis's resignation threats outnumber his meetings with Michel Barnier - says it all…
