The Telegraph: Theresa May makes eleventh hour phone call to Donald Tusk as she considers postponing 'doomed' vote10 December 2018 | 04:48 | FOCUS News Agency
Theresa May held 11th-hour crisis talks with EU leaders on Sunday as she agonised over whether to postpone Tuesday's “doomed” vote on her Brexit deal.
With time rapidly running out, Mrs May phoned Donald Tusk, the European Council president, to explain that MPs would kill off the deal – and possibly her premiership – unless Brussels could throw her a lifeline.
Mrs May also called Leo Varadkar, the Irish Taoiseach, to discuss the vote and Thursday’s summit in Brussels. Mr Varadkar’s support is crucial if Mrs May is to win any concessions on the Irish backstop – the biggest obstacle to getting her deal through Parliament.
