Quotes from the news wire:
I think both Minister Boris Johnson and... Priti Patel and some other government MPs did misjudge the situation right from the start, but certainly, in as much as The Government's woken a few people up who perhaps didn't realize that Priti Patel has said this, that does make things a little bit more awkward for The Government than perhaps they were before.
There was a political imperative on the government to get an agreement and then to go to the electorate with the claim that they had, to coin a phrase, got Brexit done, i think it possibly was the case in some senses that it was `make the agreement in haste and then repent at leisure. And what were seeing now is the repentance.

The problem is whatever he gets now could end up looking worse than nothing at all.
