Good idea for a quiz. The Chequers deal was just an agreement within the Cabinet; the EU was not party to it.

I'll probably update it after the election. Information might change pretty quickly between now and then. If he loses I will probably add something about the brevity of his premiership.

How about updating this now that he's quit? (PS, probably better to have the May answer after the mayor answer to avoid fluking the former when answering the latter)
