You may have, it is true, possibly heard this before - but today is a very, very big day in Brexit. Boris Johnson will bring his Withdrawal Agreement Bill (inelegantly, but distinctively, known as the WAB) to parliament. At the end of the day Johnson could be on course to pass the legislation and leave the EU by the end of October - or he will have lost and an extension, or a less likely no-deal Brexit, will be inevitable.
