>> Am I going to see this through? Yes.>> Theresa May lives another day despite the fury and chaos that came with the draft Brexit deal.>> But I believe with every fiber of my being that the course I have set out is the the right one for our country and all our people.
00:00:16
>> Mr. Mr Raab?>> First, Theresa May's Brexit Minister Dominic Raab, the main key to shepherding the deal through, quit, saying it had fatal flaws. Several resignations followed, and the pound tumbled in its biggest drop against the euro.>> This is the 585 page document, draft agreement between Britain and the European Union which is basically going to set the terms of Brexit.
00:00:40
And this is the product of more than a year of intense negotiation.>> Reuters Peter Thal Larsen says the battle is now beginning is earnest.>> I think we have sort of a crunch point now, this is the British government saying this is the best we can get from the EU.
00:00:54
And actually all the people who criticize this agreement none of them really have a better alternative.>> It is a draft reading.>> Now May needs the green light from fellow EU leaders. Then, the UK Parliament but that is looking less likely by the hour. Several Brexiters sent letters of no confidence.

They need 48 to trigger a challenge.>> This is not Brexit. This is a failure of government policy. It needs to be rejected.>> A key sticking point remains Northern Ireland. The DUP which props up her government opposes any deal that treats the province differently from the rest of the UK.
00:01:28
>> The Conservative Party is a minority government. It's only able to govern because it has the support of an small Northern Irish party, and the small Northern Irish party has also said it's gonna vote against this agreement. It suggest two things. One is that it's very unlikely that this agreement as it stands will get through to Parliament, and secondly, it's also quite likely that at some stage within the Conservative Party there will be a challenge to her leadership to replace her as leader and as Prime Minister.
00:01:55
>> If this deal doesn't get through Parliament, Britain might have to leave without one, or even cancel Brexit. EU leaders are due to meet on November the 25th to endorse and finalize the deal.>> Stop Brexit!
