Back Boris Johnson's Brexit deal to reclaim United Kingdom sovereignty
Johnson's deal has the backing of EU leaders but convincing the UK parliament is expected to be more of a challenge

Varadkar has more reason to call an election if the British parliament backs the deal today because his approval rating rose 15 points to 51% in an opinion poll following a meeting with Johnson last week that preceded the Brexit breakthrough.
On Thursday, MPs approved a motion to hold the first weekend sitting of Parliament since the Falklands conflict.
If Parliament does not vote the deal through, Mr Johnson is compelled under the Benn Act to request a further Brexit delay to the end of January - something he has previously refused to countenance.
Britain's People's Vote campaign wants to bring hundreds of thousands to the streets on Saturday to protest Boris Johnson's Brexit deal. He didn't explain how.
And writing in the Sun, Mr Johnson urged MPs to back his deal, saying: "There have been any number of false dawns. Deadlines for our departure have come and gone", Johnson, the face of the 2016 campaign to leave the European Union, wrote in Britain's best-selling newspaper, The Sun.
"I don't think new deadlines should be given", said Macron. Johnson doesn't have a majority, so the support of former Tories such as Philip Hammond and David Gauke gives the move a good chance of passing.
If he fails, Mr Johnson will face the humiliation of Brexit unravelling after repeatedly promising that he would get it done - "do or die" - by 31 October.
Parliament will sit from 8:30am (GMT) on Saturday. With the Brexit deadline of October 31st fast approaching, Juncker added that there would now be no need to extend the Brexit deadline. He pledged to renegotiate the most contentious elements of a divorce text agreed by his predecessor Theresa May with Brussels a year ago, which MPs rejected three times.
The Times said the decision Saturday hinges on how 55 undeclared or undecided MPs decide when they go into the voting lobbies Saturday. Labour lawmakers worry that the Johnson deal's vision of a loose post-Brexit economic relationship with the European Union could endanger workplace and environmental protections that Britain gained as a member of the bloc.
The deal's fate could largely rest on a group of 21 Conservative lawmakers expelled from the party's group in Parliament earlier this year for voting against the government, and on members from the main opposition Labour Party, which has 244 lawmakers.

Yet Johnson must navigate a legislative jungle that his opponents are trying to booby trap with amendments that could wreck his path to Brexit.
A proposed amendment to Saturday's vote would withhold approval of the deal until all the necessary legislation to implement it has passed.
This proposal, known as an amendment, will be put to a vote at the end of today's debate if selected by Speaker John Bercow.
Ahead of the so-called "super Saturday" session of Parliament, the Prime Minister tried to rally support before what is expected to be a knife-edge vote.
Thousands of anti-Brexit protesters plan to march on Parliament while Boris Johnson's new deal with the European Union is debated.
If the deal is rejected, Johnson will be obliged under United Kingdom law to ask Brussels for another Brexit extension, and EU summit host Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, has said in that case he would consult EU leaders.
"My aim is to ensure that Boris's deal succeeds", Mr Letwin said.
One of the lawmakers behind the measure, Oliver Letwin, said it would prevent the United Kingdom from leaving at the end of the month "by mistake if something goes wrong during the passage of the implementing legislation".
David Jeffery, a lecturer in British politics at the University of Liverpool, who has studied the Conservative Party, said that whatever the outcome, Johnson can make political capital out of the recent developments.

Johnson, meanwhile, likened Brexit to climbing Mount Everest, saying the summit was in sight, though still shrouded in cloud. But Brexit negotiations have been here before - seemingly closing in on a deal that is dashed at the last moment.

Lastly, Activision re-iterated their point that more content is coming post-launch, in a section titled "Post-Launch Content". One thing is for sure, though-if this stream happens, the Doc won't spare even FormaL or Scump if they make a bad play.
That comes as real output growth in services has slowed aggressively in the last few months, Zhuang told CNBC's "Street Signs". China's exports to the United States, its biggest foreign market, fell 21.9 percent in September from a year ago.
Wall Street also pushed higher, aided by strong earnings from Netflix and some other companies, and by optimism over Brexit. The bank now attached a 60% probability to a deal, and has lowered the probability of a no-deal Brexit to 30%.
It has top sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph) and is moving to the northeast at 9 miles per hour (15 kph). That means tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.
