Theresa May braced for showdown with Brexit rebels

Brexit white paper

"I think that's why Brexit happened".

Greening said that with divisions in the Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party over how to proceed with Brexit, there should be another vote, with the public able to choose between May's plans, a "no-deal" break with the European Union or remaining in the bloc.

Mrs May finally revealed what Mr Trump had told her.

Ms Greening's intervention came as MPs prepared to vote in the House of Commons on Monday evening on a series of amendments meant to wreck the Prime Minister's Chequers plan for a "common".

"I know there are some who have concerns about the "common rule book" for goods and the customs arrangements which we have proposed will underpin the new UK-EU free trade area".

May is battling for her political survival after announcing a Brexit negotiating strategy that enraged eurosceptics in her Conservative Party, who see it as a plan to keep Britain too closely tied to Brussels.

"It's not what they want, and on top of that when they hear that Leave voters are unhappy, they ask, 'What's the point?'".

Supporters of the amendment, however, indicated it may not be moved to a vote on Monday night, partly because Remain-supporting Conservatives do not want to undermine the prime minister when she is vulnerable on her right flank.

The bill is also due to have its third reading on Monday, and it could be in jeopardy if the angry Tory Brexiters join with Labour, the SNP and the Lib Dems, who are expected to vote against it.


Her blueprint was then criticised in a newspaper interview by President Trump, a position he backtracked on during a meeting with May on Friday.

Liberal Democrat former deputy prime minister Sir Nick Clegg said the U.S. leader had "every right" to come to the United Kingdom but said he would be attending an anti-Trump demonstration.

Mrs May said it was "all of our responsibility to ensure that transatlantic unity endures".

The "prize" she refers to is her Brexit vision, which she claims "restores our national sovereignty, so that it is our Government that decides who comes into our country, our Parliaments that make our laws and our courts that enforce them". "I think he's got what it takes", he added.

Sue the EU. Not go into negotiations, sue them.

Mrs May also warned Tory rebels seeking to wreck her blueprint to leave the European Union that they could be left with "no Brexit at all" unless they fall into line.

The Chequers agreement has already led to the resignations of high-profile cabinet members David Davis and Boris Johnson.

Meanwhile Boris Johnson, in his first public intervention since his resignation last week, appealed for people to take a more positive view of Britain's prospects outside the EU.

'It is time for all of us - at this critical moment in our constitutional development - to believe in ourselves, to believe in the British people and what they can do, and in our democracy, ' he wrote.
