Theresa May clings on after Boris's devastating resignation speech

Мэй выразили недоверие из-за Brexit

The release of the European Commission's leaflet comes as the new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab heads to Brussels for talks with Michel Barnier, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator.

The entire trade bill passed by 31 votes and now moves to the House of Lords for further scrutiny before returning to the Commons for a final vote.

It unleashed fury from those who want a clean break with the European Union, and a string of junior aides followed Davis and Johnson out the door.

"It is not too late to save Brexit", Johnson said in his first statement to parliament since his resignation.

Mr Johnson, a thorn in Mrs May's side when he was in office, used a parliamentary convention to explain his decision to resign from government 10 days after quitting.

May said at the liaison committee that dozens of documents spelling out the actions needed to prepare for a no deal Brexit are to be published. With May's support faltering, members of her own party, including Davis, felt emboldened to ask critical questions about her way forward.

Davies said the plan on trade is "unacceptable" and raised concerns that May being unable to deliver on Brexit negotiations with the European Union would "almost certainly lead to the catastrophe of Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister".

Johnson, the former mayor of London seen to have ambitions to be prime minister, is not alone in calling for May to ditch the Chequers plan.


Negotiators must this autumn agree a treaty on terms for British withdrawal and a plan for future trade relations.

The session offered a mirror on a party deeply split and a government just scraping by to stay in office.

Addressing MPs, Mr Johnson said the "bright certainties" that followed the 2016 Brexit vote had dissipated and the United Kingdom risked ending up in "economic vassalage" if it agreed to follow European Union regulations on trade, the environment and social affairs.

"The result of accepting the EU's rule books... is that we have must less scope to do free trade deals - as the Chequers paper actually acknowledges", he said, and added he was "happy to be able to speak out against it".

The former London mayor, who has made his ambition to be prime minister clear in the past, told parliament he backed May but then savaged her Brexit policy saying it would leave Britain in a "miserable, permanent limbo". "Not the democratic disaster of ongoing harmonization with no way out and no say for the UK". He also said it is "not too late to save Brexit".

He added: 'All it shows is that, while the auto is careering towards the Brexit cliff-edge, senior Conservatives are fighting over what song to play on the stereo.' The prime minister wasn't even in the Commons to hear the address because she was answering questions about Brexit to a committee of MPs.

After Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin presented a united front on Monday to deny Russian collusion in the U.S. election - comments that Trump has since backtracked on - Johnson condemned Russia's "barbaric use of chemical weapons".

The Prime Minister could face a confidence vote if the chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee Sir Graham Brady receives letters from 48 Tory MPs.
