European Council President Donald Tusk said this week that the EU is prepared to cancel Brexit. But three new letters seeking a confidence vote were fired off by Tory MPs, taking the total of known letters to 20.
"There is no alternative plan on the table".
Mr Watson, MP for West Bromwich East, which voted overwhelmingly to leave, said: "The Government is in complete meltdown". She has presented her country with a deal for which there is no constituency.
"The deal does not protect jobs or livelihoods of the people in the West Midlands".
Other mutinous lawmakers in her party have openly spoken of ousting her and said bluntly that the Brexit deal would not pass parliament.
This is why the deal is nearly certain to fail in Parliament. In 2016 then-Prime Minister David Cameron called a referendum "to settle this European question in British politics" once and for all.
While Mr Lamont and Mr Masterton voted Remain in the 2016 referendum, Aberdeen South MP Ross Thomson voted for Brexit. "If we change the person at the top, whoever is at the top we will still have the same problems". One caller said May should resign and let a more staunchly pro-Brexit politician take over; another compared her to Neville Chamberlain, the 1930s prime minister who tried in vain to appease Nazi Germany to avoid war.
"I hope they go back into their corners and we can get on with doing what we're expected to do, which is delivering a Brexit I hope will protect the economy", she said.
The Prime Minister will seek to reassure business leaders about the Government's Brexit strategy at a meeting next week.
"I think there is one thing that is missing and that is political will and resolve".

"The whole cabinet has fully supported it [the deal]".
Despite all of her efforts, May has not been able strike a draft exit agreement that is better for the United Kingdom national interest than one which continued membership of a reformed European Union potentially offers.
May is determined to fight on, warning that abandoning her Brexit plan, with Britain's withdrawal just over four months away on March 29, would plunge the country into "deep and grave uncertainty".
Many of May's colleagues fear this provision could keep the United Kingdom and the European Union in a customs arrangement indefinitely and block any prospect of free trade deals with other countries.
"Everybody has to accept not they are not going to get everything they want out of it". After she announced that she obtained approval of the draft deal at an extraordinary Cabinet meeting, the Brexit minister resigned, saying he "cannot support" the arrangement.
Steve Baker, a ringleader of Tory Brexiteers, said he had been speaking to colleagues and his count was "a little over 48" with another dozen "probable" - although he acknowledged this may be inaccurate as only Sir Graham knew the true figure.
"I don't want that job!" If no meaningful action was taken on Europe, it was not going to be his fault; he could not go against his coalition partners on this important issue.
While the determination of Mrs May makes this scenario seem unlikely, it is possible that with continuing criticism from her own party, and perhaps more resignations in the offing, the PM could throw in the towel.
Charles Tannock, a senior Tory MEP, is unimpressed with the current situation and told this website, "If I were to look into a crystal ball the meaningful vote in late December or early January 2019 in the House of Commons may well result in a defeat of the Government's withdrawal agreement, creating a constitutional crisis as Labour will whip its MPs strongly to vote against it".
"What could be madder at this stage, with seven days to go [to the Brussels summit] to undermine the Prime Minister. People did not vote to be poorer and less secure".
