Brexiters unveil plan to derail Theresa May's Chequers proposals

Brexiters unveil plan to derail Theresa May's Chequers proposals”

'We'd rather watch England take penalties in the World Cup final than see Britain go into the final round of Brexit negotiations so disunified'.

In a policy paper, the government will outline proposals for a free trade area and a "common rule book" with the European Union in goods after pressure from businesses to allow cross-border trade to continue as normal.

Boris Johnson's resignation was announced as David Davis was partway through an LBC interview - this was his instant reaction.

Tentative signs of a recovery in Britain's economy have lifted expectations of an August interest rate hike to more than 60 percent from less than 50 percent two weeks ago. Against such a disorganised attack the EU's defence will certainly feel increasingly confident'.

Dominic Raab was appointed Brexit secretary by Mrs May after Davis' resignation.

Virendra Sharma, a supporter of the Best for Britain campaign for another referendum, said that a "gang of Brexit bullies are threatening to pull the plug on the Prime Minister".

A third amendment would force the government to commit to having separate Value-Added Tax regime from the EU, while the fourth demands primary legislation if the United Kingdom seeks to remain in the EU's customs union.

The electorate is totally confused because May has deviated from the message of the 2017 referendum with her soft Brexit landing that she expects to use to placate Michael Barnier, the chief European Union negotiator.

Their departure followed that of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Davis' number two, Brexit Minister Steve Baker.

The slew of resignations could possibly point to members of Parliament demanding a vote of no confidence in May, even though her team is confident that their Brexit plan would pass if it gets put to a vote.

They also argued that the proposals breach several of the "red lines" the government had set out, including a commitment to leave the EU's tariff-free customs union.

Speaking at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Mrs May repeated her assertion that the Chequers agreement delivered on her Brexit red lines - leaving the EU's single market and customs union.

But leading pro-Brexit lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg said he didn't think she would face a leadership challenge.

He has also said he might speak to Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over May's plans.

"I would be surprised if one [a leadership contest] is precipitated and if there is, I suspect she'd win it", he said. We have to deliver Brexit or we will be punished at the polls at the next general election.

U.S. President Donald Trump flies into "hot spot" Britain on Thursday hours after casting doubt on Prime Minister Theresa May's plans for leaving the European Union and with protests planned across the country where he says the people like him a lot.

"Seeing as the prime minister isn't bringing Brexit home I'm concerned attending would be a bad omen for football coming home".

The plan has unleashed a rebellion by Brexit hardliners who fear it may prevent Britain from concluding free-trade agreements with third countries and effectively turn the country into a "vassal state" or "colony" of the EU.
