How the government's Brexit defeat in the House of Lords will not delay Article 50
The government's insisting a defeat in the House of Lords last night makes no difference to its timetable for leaving the EU. Peers debating the Bill that'll authorise Theresa May to trigger the process backed an amendment guaranteeing the rights of European nationals living here. Ministers say it's 'disappointing' and 'unnecessary' - and vowed to overturn it in the Commons. Elsewhere in Europe, the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has set out the future of the EU after Brexit. Josh Lowe joined Georgie to discuss all these stories he’s been writing about in Newsweek.
