Gove says Brexit plan is a realistic compromise

Donald Trump meets with Theresa May in New York

There were also signs that Brussels was less than impressed after an initial examination of the plans, which were thrashed out and agreed by the entire cabinet at an all-day summit at Chequers on Friday.

The cabinet, including Brexiteers, rubber stamped the proposal for a new UK-EU free trade area for goods to be created during crunch talks at Mrs May's country retreat, Chequers, on Friday.

She said her government would "decide" whether European Union citizens would receive special consideration to live and work in Britain after the country leaves the European Union, a prospect that may anger people in the United Kingdom who favor a complete break and a substantial reduction in immigration.

She seems to have reassured pro-Brexit ministers that under the new negotiating position Britain will still be able to seek trade deals with the rest of the world, easing fears that mirroring European Union rules for goods would rule that out.

He warned that abiding by a common rulebook could make "trade deals nearly impossible", adding that "it is possible that this deal is worse" than a "no deal" Brexit. Parliament will decide whether or not to back the deal the government negotiates, but that deal will undoubtedly mean the returning of powers from Brussels to the United Kingdom.

Trade in services, like financial services, would not be covered by common rules and the United Kingdom accepts there will be less mutual access of their markets.

The plan would ensure "no hard border" between Northern Ireland and Ireland and would create a United Kingdom "parliamentary lock" on new rules.

Mr Davis had disagreed with the PM's plans for keeping European Union rules for goods and adopting a close customs partnership with the other 27 member countries.

Jenkyns said Steve Baker, a junior minister in the Brexit department, had also quit.

It claims the Prime Minister's Brexit promises appeared to be "a pretence and a charade meant to dupe the electorate" and concludes that "in the interests of our country and the future of the Conservative Party, I feel the time has come for a new leader". He suggested his support for the prime minister was not unconditional. According to Britain's Financial Times, "Mrs".

He told BBC Radio 5 Live's Pienaar's Politics: "I'm very, very disappointed with the offer that we've seen coming out of Chequers - I'm disappointed that so-called Brexiteers in the Cabinet didn't pick up the cudgels and fight for a better offer".


Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson backed the proposals at Chequers, despite claiming that defending the plans was like "polishing a turd" during the meeting.

Business Secretary Greg Clark says the plan is "very positive" and would allow business supply chains to operate without new barriers, helping protect British jobs.

Yet after reflecting on the situation, Mr Davis and Mr Baker apparently decided they could not live with such a soft Brexit after all.

Earlier, British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, during a closed meeting of Tory supporters and donors, severely criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May. Some lawmakers have already expressed their misgivings.

Others have urged Jacob Rees-Mogg to stand, the paper reports.

"[Mr Davis'] departure raises more questions about what came out of that meeting".

Asked if the prime minister could survive.

These and other provisions would meet the public expectations for what Brexit would entail, she said. "It's more important to do what you have promised the British electorate than stick by lines in the sand".

Efforts to build support for the plan will see MPs invited to attend presentations organised by Chief Whip Julian Smith and Mrs May's chief of staff Gavin Barwell.

Announced at the end of a crucial summit on Friday, the proposal seeks "to preserve frictionless goods trade with the European Union and avoid the border checks and tariffs" most feared by manufacturing companies, the United Kingdom media reported. "It was the right thing to do".

Analysts suspect this is bad news, though they await the full White Paper this week.
