MPs say they are ready to push May towards softer Brexit

Earlier, Ms May has said she had secured "legally binding changes" from the European Union to overcome the Ireland backstop.
The GBP/JPY cross plunged back below the key 145.00 psychological mark in the last hour, albeit quickly recovered few pips thereafter.
Currency traders fear that the attorney general's advice means Theresa May's revised Brexit deal is less likely to be accepted by pro-Brexit MPs.
The first is a "joint legally binding instrument" which May said had "comparable legal weight" to the Brexit agreement itself and would "guarantee that the European Union can not act with the intent of applying the backstop indefinitely".
Prime Minister Theresa May rushed to Strasbourg on Monday for last-minute talks with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker in a bid to salvage the Brexit deal, with British MPs set to vote Tuesday on whether to accept the withdrawal agreement.
The problem continues to revolve around the controversial Irish backstop - the safeguard against a hard border on the island of Ireland.

She would have looked first to the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland, whose 10 votes give her minority government a theoretical majority - and whose implacable opposition to the Northern Irish "backstop" in her deal has put down a marker for May's otherConservative foes and prompted the weeks of shuttle diplomacy with Brussels.
After Parliament rejected the deal in a defeat of historic proportions in January, May promised to seek changes to address these concerns.
Cox, the government's chief legal adviser, said on Tuesday that the legal risks the United Kingdom from the Brexit backstop remained unchanged despite assurances from the EU.
She said it was "time to pivot, not to dig in" and said the risk of extension was that May would "do more of the same, running round in circles on the backstop and running down the clock".
Meanwhile, JR Zhou, market analyst at Infinox, said markets were "convinced" that the deal does not have the numbers to pass and added that May's speech to the Commons "has now been thrust firmly into Hail Mary territory - a last-ditch effort to sell a seemingly unsellable deal to MPs". "We have a deal on the table which does exactly do this". If members of Parliament choose to veto a no-deal Brexit, they will then get a vote on whether to delay the U.K.'s departure from the bloc.
The changes fall short of demands of hardcore UK Brexiteers, but may persuade some politicians to switch their votes.
