Another where we learn very little. Questions not really answered and May refuses to rule out or an extension to Article 50 or entering a customs union. Impasse continues and still unclear how May will get any Brexit deal through the Commons.

Corbyn probing on Brexit - very telling that May does not answer when asked which of her red lines she is willing to work on. Plan B very much = Plan A

Blimey. Telegraph reporting that CCHQ has been put on election footing needs to have "resources in place" if Theresa May's Brexit deal is defeated. Remember, Theresa May has previously said she wouldn't lead the party into the next election....

Yvette Cooper's bill, is VERY significant - it gives Theresa May until 26 Feb to get her deal through. If she does not manage to do so, Parliament directs what happens next and there would be a binding vote on whether and for how long to seek an extension to Article 50.

If Tory MPs are tweeting this, there's no way Plan B is going to get the support of the Commons.

So, Plan B and Plan A are very similar but there was quite a visible change in tone. Underlying message is that there is no majority in the Commons for anything at the moment.

So Corbyn repeating his demands for a general election. He has already called a no-confidence vote and it wasn't successful. How exactly is Corbyn going to get a general election? Can bring it back 100 times and May is likely to win it each time.

Jeremy Corbyn accuses Theresa May of performing a "stunt" when meeting party leaders yesterday. Says he is happy to talk as long as no-deal is ruled out.

Michel Barnier has just said that the EU and Britain can adopt "contingency measures" to help cope with a no-deal Brexit. His words won't be helpful for May right now and is likely to encourage the Brexiteers in her party who are keen to leave on WTO terms.

It's an interesting move from the PM, talking about forming a political consensus while appearing to double-down on her red-lines....
