So says the opposition labour party

Well, at least we have a time for the vote now.

If the House of Commons decide to vote against the government, it'll put May in a tough spot with further calls of her resignation. That'll be a bit of a negative for the pound but has to be weighed together with the likelihood of a softer Brexit which is a positive.

Meanwhile, a vote in the government's favour will mean that if a no Brexit deal materialises, then May could very well just go with that and there will be a hard Brexit if talks with EU break down. That is a pound negative.

But of course, all this is still conjecture since it still hinges on the talks with the EU. And after this, there's still votes to come in parliament on the customs bill and the trade bill too. So, there's still a long way to go.
