Conservative rebels target Theresa May's Brexit plan

But former Conservative leader William Hague, writing in the Daily Telegraph, said May´s critics had failed to produce "any credible alternative proposal" and warned that further resignations could put Brexit itself "at risk". I can only regret that the idea of Brexit has not left with Davis and Johnson.

And others would require the United Kingdom to have a separate Value-Added Tax regime from the EU and force the prime minister to table primary legislation if she wishes to keep Britain in the customs union. We will work it out and all countries will be happy. I thought yesterday that he was entirely out of line with his comment on the resignation of Boris Johnson as Foreign Minister in the cabinet of British Prime Minister May to protest her betrayal of Brexit.

May's government was rocked Monday by the resignations of Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis. Theresa May counts on the "soft" Brexit, which may cost more money, but implies keeping business relations intact, which is really necessary for the British companies and enterprises.

Davis' resignation undermined May's already fragile government, which has lost several ministers in 2017 over sexual misconduct allegations and other scandals.

Amendments striking at the heart of the Chequers scheme are being supported by leading Brexiteers including Jacob Rees-Mogg, Bernard Jenkin and Owen Paterson. He claimed negotiations were in a "state of complete capitulation" before warning that the Conservative Party will be "punished at the polls at the next general election". Three junior ministers also quit their posts.

The Government has named Kit Malthouse, MP for North West Hampshire and former deputy mayor of London, as the latest housing minister, moving into the role vacated yesterday by Dominic Raab. They also are in a minority in parliament to try to change any deal that is agreed with the EU.

Therefore, in the interests of our country and the future of the Conservative Party, I feel the time has come for a new leader and so I am writing this letter to inform you that I have no confidence in the Prime Minister.

Prosecutors: Paul Manafort Says He's Being Treated Like a 'VIP' in Jail
Mueller III's special counsel probe say Manafort wants the trial delayed only for strategic reasons. The government's description makes it sound somewhat more like a hotel room with some restrictions.

Ben Bradly's letter of resignation struck a similar tone, saying: "I have come to the conclusion that I can not in good faith be a spokesman for the party or for Government on this issue" of the government's Brexit position.

Speaking at The Independent's Indy Brexit Debate in London, Ms Miller suggested the 2016 Brexit referendum was too complex a question to be voted on.

Since then, two vice chairmen of the party have also resigned (Ben Bradwell and Maria Caulfield) have also resigned stating that they can not support the current government position and fear that their constituents would vote them out of parliament should the nation be faced with a general election on the back of the current Brexit position.

"How can anyone have faith in the prime minister getting a good deal with 27 European Union governments when she can't even broker a deal within her own Cabinet?" he asked.

"The government now has a song to sing", he said.

Rees-Mogg has assembled a significant amount of Eurosceptic MPs, including fellow Tory backbenchers, the DUP, and Kate Hoey from Labour, who are furious at the PM's Chequers Brexit plans they've nicknamed "Brino" (Brexit In Name Only), according to the Sun.
