Theresa May braced for showdown with Brexit rebels

  • Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves the BBC after appearing on the Andrew Marr Show in central London Britain

Eurosceptics have rallied support against the Mrs May's plan agreed at Chequers as they build up their campaign against plans to retain European Union regulations on goods and agriculture.

Reports at the weekend suggested that about 40 of the 48 MPs needed had lodged no-confidence letters with the chairman of the party's backbench 1922 Committee after May had indicated that the United Kingdom was prepared to sign up to a "common rule book" for food and goods after Brexit.

Theresa May who has warned her mutinous MPs that if they do not accept her Brexit White Paper they risk having no Brexit at all, has a working majority of just 13.

On Monday, Brexit supporters targeted the government's so-called customs bill, hoping to toughen up her plans. She added: "I have always said I'm in this for the long term".

Lib Dem leader Vince Cable told the Independent: "With the Tories languishing in a state of civil war, Theresa May is running scared of a leadership challenge with plans for an early recess".

Amid an escalating crisis for the prime minister MPs are set to vote on a series of amendments, tabled by members of the European Research Group (ERG), that seek to wreck a blueprint for leaving the EU drawn up at Chequers.

He follows Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Brexit minister Steve Baker in quitting the government in protest at the prime minister's strategy, which will be voted on in the House of Commons today (Monday).

These make it extremely difficult for the United Kingdom to negotiate a viable solution for avoiding a hard border on the island on Ireland, where the EU's new external border should be after Brexit, and to which May committed to keeping it open.

There is a belief in Conservative circles that a no-confidence vote in May will have to be called by Wednesday this week as there will otherwise not be time to hold it before parliament breaks up for the summer on Tuesday 24 July.

Labour claimed she had effectively torn up her carefully crafted negotiating plan.

But Mrs May told MPs: "I would not have gone through all the work I did to ensure we reached that agreement only to see it changed in some way through these Bills. They do not change that Chequers agreement".

In an attempt to calm activists' anger, Tory association chairmen are being offered briefings in Downing Street over the detail of Mrs May's plans.

The Tory grandee, an arch Eurosceptic, had seized on Soubry's praise of the former Prime Minister.

It is with a great deal of sadness that I have tendered my resignation as a Parliamentary Private Secretary at the Treasury.
