You will be aware from the events of last week that Parliament voted to support the Brady amendment, of which I was a sponsor, which means that the Prime Minister can now go back to Brussels to negotiate in the knowledge that it is the issue of the "Irish backstop" that needs to be addressed.
“A week is a long time in politics” goes the saying. At the moment so is every hour and every minute. For two years ambiguity has kept politicians like me at bay but the clarity of the 585-page withdrawal agreement means that is no longer possible. This is the moment of truth for Brexit.
Last week, along with a number of colleagues and former defense personnel, I helped deliver a letter to the Prime Minister. The letter called on the Prime Minister to prevent the legal persecution of veterans.
