In a high stakes pitch from UK PM Boris Johnson following a political meeting at dowing Street in fluid Brexit tactics which are changing all of the time, keeping global financial markets on edge, he has announced that chances of a deal have been rising.  

Key comments:

  • A sense in Brussels that MPs may find some way to cancel.
  • MPs will vote tomorrow to try and get another pointless delay.
  • I don’t think they will.
  • If they do they will chop the legs away from any further negotiation.
  • MPs should vote with the gov against Corbyn’s pointless delay.
  • I will not ask Brussels to delay.
  • I don’t want an election.
  • You don’t want an election.  

GBP/USD us fairly steady on the statement.
