British MPs are set to vote on Brexit deal on Tuesday after Prime Minister Theresa May scraped through winning “legally binding changes” from the European Union in the last-ditch effort to make her divorce deal more palatable to the lawmakers.

The freshly-negotiated legal add-on to the Brexit deal could, however, do little to sway the Labors, as indicated by their leader Jeremy Corbyn, who described the changes as far short of what May had pledged, notes the BBC.

The legal opinion of Attorney General Geoffrey Cox could be a defining factor in how the lawmakers respond to the last-minute changes. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has warned that the vote on Tuesday could be the last chance for Britain to save the deal as there would be no further “reassurances or clarifications” from the EU, writes The Guardian.
