Amber Rudd writes to her constituents

Amber Rudd writes to her constituents”

The MPs, including the former Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond, faced the wrath of the staunch Brexiteer Prime Minister Boris Johnson and were thrown out of the party.

Mr Johnson was today expected to ramp up the pressure on MPs to back a snap General Election or face five weeks of watching the Brexit negotiations from the sidelines.

Amber Rudd has quit Boris Johnson's cabinet and given up the Conservative whip after the prime minister sacked 21 rebellious Conservative MPs this week.

In an explosive resignation letter, she said she no longer felt securing a deal with the European Union was the government's "main objective", and accused Mr Johnson of "political vandalism" for sacking the 21 Tory MPs who rebelled in a bid to stop a no-deal Brexit.

A source speaking to the Sunday Times said that the prime minister is preparing for a show-down in the Supreme Court, saying "If there isn't a deal by the 18th we will sabotage the extension", while another source said the prime minister's inner team is preparing to "take a chainsaw to anything" that threatens fulfilling the will of the people.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said he was "really sorry" to see Amber Rudd leave the Cabinet.

A senior minister of Britain's ruling Conservative party has resigned because she does not think the prime minister is serious about creating a Brexit divorce deal.

She added: "I think we win as the Conservative Party by showing our values, which are moderate, strong, proportionate one nation values".

"We became MPs at the same time in 2010, but I think in fairness when she took the cabinet role everyone was asked "do you accept and can you sign up and will you support the Prime Minister's plan to leave by the end of October preferably with a deal, but if not come what may" and we all accepted that".

According to the paper, Mr Farage wants to see Tory candidates stand aside in Labour-supporting areas in the North, South Wales and the Midlands to give his party a chance to pick up votes from Brexit-supporting voters.

The Sunday Telegraph reported further details of Mr Farage's offer to help the Conservatives in an election if the party decides to embrace a no-deal exit from the European Union as its preferred outcome.

The backstop - the insurance policy to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland - remains a major stumbling block in getting a Brexit deal through Parliament.

Julian Smith is among ministers rumoured to be on the brink of leaving the government.

Javid said: "Anyone who understands how negotiation works, you would not discuss those in public".
