May: We risk ending up with no Brexit at all

The chairman of the Conservatives has played down reports members are quitting the party en masse over Theresa May's plan for Brexit.

But the model has infuriated many Brexit supporters, and led to the resignations of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis.

According to the latest Opinium poll, Labour have a four point lead over the Tories, who are now polling on 36%.

Meanwhile, Labour have stayed on 40 per cent, while Ukip - the Brexit backing party most commentators had written off - have surged to 8 per cent.

Mrs May's intervention came as former Brexit minister Steve Baker, who quit over the Chequers plan along with Boris Johnson and David Davis, said the proposal was the work of an "establishment elite" bent on thwarting the European Union referendum vote. Corbyn, addressing May in parliament, said her government should be ended if it was incapable of governing. But it doesn't have to be this way.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has written to May telling her to change course or risk doing untold damage to the City.

The poll also shows that Mrs May's personal ratings have nosedived - pluging from -8 to -24.

"This will put an end to the extensive payments to Brussels, providing the Brexit dividend to maintain internal priorities, such as our long-term plan for the NHS", said may.

Soon after his appointment, Hunt said he would be standing "four square" behind the prime minister "so that we can get through an agreement with the European Union based on what was agreed by the Cabinet last week at Chequers".

But the Daily Mail reported Rees-Mogg said Johnson would make a "brilliant" prime minister.

The scene cooled off for awhile until more people flooded the area about 8:30 p.m., with some throwing glass bottles at officers. When police with batons entered a parking lot where protesters were gathered near the scene, scores of people scattered.

I believe this will help the government stick to the promises it made'.

The attempts of legislators to thwart the plan of the Prime Minister of great Britain Theresa may's exit from the European Union could lead to Brexit will have to cancel.

May revealed today that Trump advised her to "sue the EU" rather than sitting down in Brexit negotiations, although she added that he also said "Don't walk away" from negotiations.

"My message to the country this weekend is simple: we need to keep our eyes on the prize". "If we don't, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all".

The turmoil comes at the start of a momentous week for the PM who will attend the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Wednesday and Thursday and is due to meet US President Donald Trump on his first visit to the UK.

Mrs May acknowledged some MPs had concerns about her plan for a "common rule book" with the EU for goods and customs traded within what she called a new "UK-EU free trade area". I understand those concerns.

However, she insisted that she had yet to see a workable alternative to the proposals that would ensure trade remained as frictionless as possible, while avoiding the return of a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

'It can not be the breaking up of our precious United Kingdom with a border down the Irish Sea.

"And it can not be the destruction of integrated supply chains and just-in-time processes on which jobs and livelihoods depend".

The government faces the prospect of further rebellion against the white paper, after prominent backbench Tory Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg wrote in the Sunday Express that May is a "Remainer who has stuck with Remain".
