TORY Brexiteers have backed Boris Johnson’s’ EU trade deal ahead of today’s landmark vote.
The PM will hail the chance to “open a new chapter” in history as he implores MPs to make his Brexit deal law later today.
The crucial vote will take place at 2.30pm before the bill moves to the House of Lords for approval.
Mr Johnson will claim the deal gives Britain “the best chance of beating Covid and bouncing back”.
He is expected to add: “We will now open a new chapter in our national story, striking free trade deals around the world” and to say that the UK will be “the best friend and ally the EU could have”.
