(Alliance News) - The pound and UK-centric London stocks got a boost after the UK and EU reached a draft Brexit agreement on Thursday, though it remains yet to be seen if UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson can get his deal through Westminster. UK Prime Minister Johnson tweeted: "We've got a great new deal that takes back control - now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment." "With Labour whipping for a second referendum on the deal and the Lib Dems unlikely to support anything, there is still a good chance we're heading for an extension and election, in order to get this over the line. Nothing in Brexit is ever simple," said Erlam.
