Apparently they are saying that they’ll wait until Monday before deciding whether to quit, The backstop is said to be the “crunch point”. They want an explicit end date — and nothing less.
As a general rule is is naive to allow this sort of story to appear is if there’s a chance that when shove comes to push you don’t follow it through.
My guess is that we’ll see a lot of this in the coming days but TMay will face them down.
