Brexit quiz: how much do you know about leaving the EU?

Test your knowledge of Brexit resignations, threats and promises

The government will continue to hold negotiations with Labour over the Brexit deadlock.

Downing Street has announced that cabinet ministers will meet senior opposition figures in an attempt to solve the impasse by finding a deal on the Brexit withdrawal agreement that could win the support of MPs.

As before, “the only question that matters is whether May is now ready to meet Labour’s terms and keep Britain in the customs union, or whether she will continue to stick to her Brexit red lines”, says Politico

But some Tory MPs “are angry the talks with Labour are even taking place”, says the BBC

In an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, leading backbencher Nigel Evans called on Theresa May “to step down as prime minister as soon as possible”. 

He said May “had been reaching out to the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn, when she should have been reaching out to the people”.

In fact, “neither the Tory nor Labour grassroots are over the moon about talking to the enemy on Brexit”, says HuffPost’s Paul Waugh. 

“Some in Labour think that the PM really hasn’t changed anything of substance in these talks, not least on their key demand for a customs union/arrangement,” he writes.

With the talks ongoing and Brexit continuing to dominate the headlines more than 1,000 days after the EU referendum, how much have you taken in? Take The Week’s quiz to find out:
