"May's deal" is/es the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) with the EU in final, legal form as negotiated between the two parties, UK and EU governments, and dated 17 Nov 2018.

WA appendices, eg. the Protocols and the "Political Declaration ..." a negotiable trade agenda agreed to by the two parties are contingent to ratification of the WA.

EU Council has announced WA negotiation is concluded; the document cannot and will not be altered. This position has not change despite claims to the contrary by T. May, proffered to UK parliament and press.
