► Does Theresa May's proposed agreement Tuesday, May 21st contain news?
" Yes and no, believes Bernard Cros, lecturer in British civilization at Paris-Nanterre University. His 10-point EU exit bill is a kind of prevert inventory. There is nothing completely new, but adjustments, such as the proposal for a temporary customs union, a new law protecting employees, and a referendum that it previously opposed.

If we are to believe the latest poll commissioned by The Timesbefore the vote on Thursday, May 23, Nigel Farage's Brexit Party would win 37% of the vote, LibDems, 29%, Labor, 13%, and conservatives only 7%.
