Theresa May is launching a last-ditch attempt to save her Brexit deal, warning euro-skeptics who are plotting to kill it that Britain is more likely to stay in the European Union than leave without an agreement.

As she enters one of the most tumultuous weeks of her turbulent premiership, the prime minister is seeking to avert what is almost certain to be a huge defeat on Tuesday in a House of Commons vote on the agreement she’s negotiated with the EU.
