The House of Commons votes in favour of the Brexit Act. This means that the UK is on track to leave the EU on 31 January. However, the House of Lords and the European Parliament have yet to approve the deal. French European Affairs Minister Clement Beaune also warned that France would veto a bad deal and told Europe 1 radio station: “If a good deal cannot be reached, we will oppose it. Each country has a right of veto. The EU and the UK have reached an agreement on the Withdrawal Agreement, with a revised protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland (removal of the backstop) and a revised political declaration. On the same day, the European Council (Article 50) approved these texts. . . .
