'On the Brexit brink': UK front pages react to Boris Johnson's deal

Boris Johnson now faces an uphill struggle to win MPs over to vote for his deal.

AS THE UK, Ireland and the rest of the EU reacts to Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, British newspapers have been giving their reaction to the plan, which the prime minister will now try to get through the House of Commons. 

The Times says the “final hurdle” is “in sight”, and reports that Mr Johnson will spend the next 24 hours “frantically trying to sell it to MPs”.

The Daily Telegraph says Johnson will give Parliament an ultimatum saying it is his deal or no deal.

The Guardian reports the deal will be subject to a “knife-edge vote” and reports it will be a numbers game in the Commons after the DUP said it would not support the government.

In Northern Ireland, on which Brexit negotiations have focused, the DUP reaction to the deal dominates.

The Belfast Telegraph quotes the DUP prominently on its front page – “There is no perfect deal but let’s work on it.”
