After Conservative minister Michael....>

GILT SUMMARY: After Conservative minister Michael Gove refused at the weekend to
confirm whether the government would abide by any law passed in parliament to
prevent no-deal, the government has now been accused of goading Tory rebels into
voting against the government and being deselected. 
- Parliament returns tomorrow. This will be a frantic week with a relatively
high probability of both a confidence vote being called against the government
and legislation being proposed to block no-deal.
