Cosnervative rebels target Theresa May’s Brexit plan

British government plunged into fresh chaos as Brexit minister resigns

"We're making sure we've got a bespoke relationship with the EU", Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, who was only appointed on Monday after his predecessor David Davis quit in protest over the plan, told BBC radio.

As head of the Brexit ministry, Davis was the public face of Britain's negotiating team, but in reality had been overshadowed for months by May and her aides.

The Foreign Secretary quit his role in government hours after Mr Davis stood down as Brexit Secretary. I wouldn't personally want to see us change Prime Minister in the middle of a set of negotiations where that would be seen as a sign of weakness by the Europeans.

Mr Johnson plunged the Government into crisis after he announced he was quitting with a scathing denunciation of her Brexit plans, saying they would leave the United Kingdom a "colony" of the European Union.

I am sorry - and a little surprised - to receive it after the productive discussions we had at Chequers on Friday, and the comprehensive and detailed proposal which we agreed as a Cabinet.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has insisted the proposals must be workable.

These firms would, of course, favour a "soft Brexit" as that will ensure continued access to the single market comprising the remaining 27 European Union states, and some have put expansion plans on hold until there is greater clarity on Britain's exit by March 2019.




"We're extremely confident in the ability of the U.K.to plough through this issue with Brexit and move on", he said.

Asked what he would do if the Brexit plan ended up limiting Britain's ability to conduct trade deals with non-EU countries, Fox said: "I don't believe it does".

"He's been very, very supportive and very nice to me".

"It takes 48 Conservative members out of a total of 60 to trigger a leadership challenge; however, we are unlikely to see the challenge happen because there is not yet the belief that they have the numbers to effectively oust Theresa May", Hoez added. "To have free movement would, in my view, be a betrayal of what the people voted for in the referendum". Meeting Conservative lawmakers on Monday, May was cheered and applauded by many, having warned that squabbling could pave the way for socialist opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn to take power.

The pound rose on Thursday as traders bet that a Brexit white paper policy document could help restart negotiations on trade between the European Union and Britain for when it leaves the bloc next March. "That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt", the resignation letter stated. He said Britain was heading for a "semi-Brexit". While the theatre for prosecuting this new diplomatic virtual war to reacquire independence for Britain was the European Union headquarters in Brussels, it has now spread its tentacles to Westminster, to the Labour Party, the DUP coalition partner, Conservatives, the media, the business community, and the people themselves who conducted a million-people march against Brexit through the streets of London recently.

The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper, which has long argued for Brexit, said May had made "blunder after blunder". Her plan splits the difference between a stripped-down free-trade deal and the so-called Norway option of full single-market membership.

"If people don't like this proposal, what is their alternative?" The plans laid out in a 98-page government paper give Britain's most detailed answer yet to the question of what will replace it.
