About 50 Conservative lawmakers discuss ousting UK Prime Minister Theresa May

About 50 Conservative lawmakers discuss ousting UK Prime Minister Theresa May”

Sterling was trading strongly up on Friday last week after the European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier said he is open to any discussion on the hot issue of the Irish border while confirming that about 90% of the Brexit deal issues have already been sorted out between the European Union and the UK.

He said the party's annual conference in Birmingham, starting on September 30, could prove a decisive moment as Mrs May is forced to acknowledge the scale of grassroots opposition to her proposals.

The BBC said those at the Tuesday night meeting which did not include all the ERG's senior figures had discussed possible scenarios depending on whether May was able to secure a deal with the European Union based on her proposals.

Pro-Brexit Tories are said to have spent several hours plotting to oust her on Tuesday night because they think she's betraying their vision of a clean break from the EU.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, has sounded more hopeful of resolving the issue, offering to be flexible in his approach to agreeing the so-called backstop plan to avoid a hard border.

On Monday, Barnier said he thought reaching an agreement on the terms of the UK's departure was "realistic" within the next six to eight weeks. "I think it is possible". There is, so far, no full exit deal and it is uncertain whether May can push an agreement through the British parliament. British politicians inside May's governing Tory party, as well as in the opposition Labour Party, are preparing to sabotage the agreement.

If a deal has been reached by then, it will need to be approved by MPs.

Mr Baker, a former chairman of the influential pro-Brexit European Research Group of Conservatives, urged Mrs May to negotiate a free trade agreement instead of the Chequers plan. This time, one subject dominated: how to get rid of May.

Business groups and civil servants say a "no-deal" Brexit could cause disruption to shipping, barriers to trade with the bloc, a fall in the value of the pound and even shortages of essential goods.

Former Brexit secretary David Davis, who quit the government over May's plan in July, told the same event: "We have got a very good prime minister and, like Jacob, I disagree with her on one issue - this issue".

The likes of former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, Environment Secretary Michael Gove and Home Secretary Sajid Javid are expected to be among the runners and riders whenever the PM leaves Downing Street.

"Brexit is a negative negotiation, unfortunately".

Mr Gove, a Brexiteer who unsuccessfully stood against Mrs May for the leadership in 2016, told BBC Radio 4's Today she was doing a "great job".

"Any diversion or any distraction from that mission means that our ability to ensure that the referendum mandate that we were given is delivered, is undermined".
