Cabinet revolt over no-deal Brexit vote

Theresa May Theresa May

But dismissing calls from Tory MPs to embrace a no-deal exit now, Mrs May said her deal remained the best way to honour the 2016 referendum result.

Mrs Newton said she "resigned from the Government so that I could vote for a motion that honours my commitment to my constituents, to leave the European Union with "a deal".

Dr Wollaston added on her second referendum proposal: 'For young people in this country, they face being wheeled into the operating theatre for major constitutional, social and economic surgery based on a consent form that was signed by their grandparents almost three years ago'.

Her exchanges with Corbyn involved the Labour leader repeatedly urging the prime minister to outline a new plan for Brexit, and to consider backing the Labour proposal, under which the United Kingdom would stay in some form of customs union.

She said No 10 should consider giving MPs a free vote on the full range of options for the UK's relationship with the European Union - more details of which will emerge later in the form of MPs' amendments.

Labour wants no-deal to be "taken off the table" and is likely to back an amendment - a legislative tool - tabled by MPs Jack Dromey and Caroline Spelman ruling out the United Kingdom leaving without an agreement at any stage in the process. "Parliament must now take control of the situation". The first one tonight is a yes or no answer on whether to back a no-deal Brexit.

"The prime minister's deal has failed, she no longer has the ability to lead", he said.

Some of her colleagues around the Cabinet table think it shows she has to tack to a closer deal with the EU.

NKorean official: Kim rethinking US talks, launch moratorium
Choe issued no direct criticism of the US president and stressed that Trump and Kim have good chemistry. She said the "gangster-like stand of the USA will eventually put the situation in danger".

A No 10 spokesman said she did not discuss resigning after her latest defeat because her government had recently won a confidence vote in the Commons.

May responded: "The deal that he's proposing has been rejected several times by this house".

The North West Cambridgeshire MP said: "Given no-deal Brexit is the Government's default position, will the Prime Minister kindly inform the House she will instruct the Chancellor to make available whatever funds are required to ensure the country is as best prepared as possible in the event we do leave on a no-deal basis".

Among other proposals which could be discussed on Wednesday is a plan for the United Kingdom to leave without a formal agreement but with a number of safeguards to minimise economic disruption.

Ms Rudd used a letter to constituents to defend her decision - and appeared to blame hardliners in the European Research Group for derailing the Prime Minister's Brexit plans.

It would see the controversial backstop replaced by alternative arrangements, an extended pay-as-you-go transition period and a series of "standstill" arrangements for various industries until the end of 2021.

Earlier in the day, British MPs also rejected another amendment that sought to delay Brexit until May 22 by extending the Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty.

Mr Boles added the PM must go as soon as a deal is agreed.
