Brexit Poison:

"Dramatic Showdown", "Brexit Poison", "War of Westminster": Boris Johnson and the EU have agreed on a Brexit deal, but defeat could happen in Parliament. The media reactions at a glance.

Two weeks before the Brexit date, the European Union and Britain have yet to agree on a deal, the 27 remaining states approved the new agreement on Thursday at the EU summit.

However, one important hurdle remains: The British lower house also has to agree on Saturday - and there is resistance. Prime Minister Boris Johnson also depends on opposition votes in Saturday's vote.

Online "Guardian" columnist Simon Jenkins writes: "Now it's starting again, and the bloody Torso Brexit will be in the torture chamber of the lower house this weekend.

MEPs should vote for Johnson's deal, Jenkins said. It would eradicate the danger of a no-deal Brexit and hopefully open the door to more relaxed negotiations on Britain's European future.

It's certainly time to end this ordeal. Johnson's EU deal gambling: On the verge of Brexit ... again, headlines the Daily Mirror in his print edition.

On the homepage it says, Johnsons are now "hectic 24 hours" before. He must convince ex-Tory rebels, Brexiteer hardliners and fickle MPs of the opposition of his plan.

On Saturday there will be a "dramatic showdown" in the lower house. The prime minister is facing a high-stakes game in the "Super Saturday Struggle".

Also, the BBC writes of "almighty gambling", which Johnson now imminent. Finally, he had to reckon with resistance from his ranks as well as from the opposition.

The government in London is aware that there is no guarantee that Parliament will approve the deal, says the article by Laura Kuenssberg.

But she has concluded that it is better to close the deal, to try to risk it - than to do nothing." This prime minister may have made a career taking risks.

By nature, that sounds dramatically in the "Daily Mail". On the start page emblazoned in capital letters: "War of Westminster".

The prime minister is launching his "36-hour hectic deal" to get his deal through the lower house on "Super Saturday," the article said. It will be a "wafer-thin vote".

Honourable credit, he got his deal, writes Sean O'Grady in an article for the Independent. Nevertheless, this is no reason for joy.

It's not the first time a breakthrough has been made in Brussels just to die in a ditch in Westminster." The Johnson deal is bad, O'Grady said. He was born out of bad motives and will have bad consequences.

He divides the UK into two economic zones; he deprives people of their opportunity to make a living; moreover, he has no direct democratic legitimacy.

He deserves to be rejected - by Parliament and by the people. Outside Britain, too, the agreement between Johnson and the EU is a big topic.

The New York Times writes that Johnson, who has not yet won a parliamentary vote as Prime Minister, can now win even in defeat.

He can rightly say that he negotiated a deal but put the blame on parliament, and he's likely to run elections in the coming weeks,

hoping to get a mandate for what the paralyzed British policy has been doing not want to do it: to lead the UK out of the European Union as soon as possible. "

The newspaper "The West Australian" printed big on its front page for Friday: "And you thought he was crazy ..."

In another version, it was said to a photo of Johnson and Jean-Claude Juncker, Make Brexit 'Great' again.

In both cases, it is written a little smaller: "The Empire strikes back as BoJo achieved a Brexit breakthrough with the European Union."

The German "Taz" shows on its front page a silver tray, which balances on the hand of a waiter. The following words are written: "Brexit is served" - the Brexit will be served.
