1. Today first #pmqs since Salzburg, but really important movement is btw officials behind closed doors this week, shuttling back and forwards btw Brussels and Westminster
2. Don't expect any new proposals to emerge from either side, even tho Barnier is making a speech today - both sides all too familiar with their positions, it's about whether the two templates which don't fit in terms of substance can be made somehow to fit
3. IF, it can be made to work, then likely Raab will appear alongside Barnier in Brussels on Monday, draft conclusions signed off by foreign ministers in Luxembourg on same day, key Cabinet on Tuesday, then EU leaders get their mits on it all on Weds night
4. Remember next week is about showing enough progress for a deal, potentially to be done at special summit in November, natural that pressure building, Westminster itself seems strangely out of the loop
5. Real danger officials and No 10 so determined to get a deal that they conclude something with Brussels to 'draft their way through', that struggles to get through Cabinet, let alone Parliament and at the risk of sounding like a broken record....
6. Still issues on Cyprus, Gibraltar, how rules of deal enforced but as one minister sees it, 'if they don't back down on their position on Ireland there won't be a deal'
