Poland’s Europe Minister has rejected a plea by the Polish-born Tory MP Daniel Kawcznski to veto an extension to Brexit, according to Jakub Krupa, the former UK correspondent for the Polish Press Agency.
Krupa was told that a “no deal Brexit is not in the Polish interest and we will have no part in this.”

A split in Downing Downing street has opened up between Boris Johnson’s chief aide, Dominic Cummings, other senior officials and Tory ministers and MPs over what to do after the failed attempt to ram a Brexit deal through parliament this week, BuzzFeed reports.
A piece from Alex Wickham says: “It is the latest dividing line in the story of Johnson’s “two governments” – the factional rivalry of two sides of Number 10 vying for influence that has been one of the defining features of his premiership.
However a No10 source now denies any split between Cummings and other aides in Downing Street...
... challenging the suggestion in the piece that the idea a split is right.
It has to be said, cabinet ministers and MPs have suggested to me they believe in a split tho.
