Conservative rebels target Theresa May's Brexit plan

  • British government plunged into fresh chaos as Brexit minister resigns

But a favourable response from the EU's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier to Thursday's blueprint could lift the pound.

"Productive cabinet meeting this morning - looking ahead to a busy week", May said on Twitter, as the resignations of Johnson and Davis sent shockwaves through Westminster and fuelled speculation that the turmoil could eventually topple her.

"The Government now has a song to sing".

Fallon warned Conservative rebels that a challenge to May's leadership is "the last thing we need". "So I think that symbolises how he considers the importance of her leadership in this country right now".

Britain has given up trying to keep full access to the European Union market for its giant financial services sector after Brexit and instead will push for an easing of existing rules, the Financial Times reported.

Speaking at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Mrs May insisted that her Chequers deal delivered on the "red lines" which she set out in her Lancaster House speech past year.

Trump isn't expected to directly address Brexit, nor were he and Johnson scheduled to meet.

"What Australia wants to see is stability and certainty and we want to continue working with the UK Government on matters of concern to us and that includes a free trade agreement when the time is appropriate".

But people like political communications expert Kevin Craig believe his departure - and that of David Davis - could strengthen the Prime Minister's outlook.

With less than nine months until Britain is due to leave the bloc, May is sticking to her plan for a "business friendly" Brexit.

Addressing Parliament on Monday, May told MPs that she and the two ministers were at odds over "the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum".

The plan agreed at May s country retreat at Chequers near London last Friday would involve Britain pursuing a "UK-EU free trade area" for goods that would involve regulatory alignment with the EU.

Mr Coveney said that hard negotiations lay ahead but that the Brexit process has moved from the "politics of parliaments" to the negotiating rooms of Brussels.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mr Johnson and Mr Davis had abandoned a "sinking ship", shattering the "illusion of unity" initially surrounding the Chequers plan. Johnson and Davis attacked the manner in which May has so far negotiated the UK's exit from the European Union, underlining divisions in the ruling Conservative Party over the nature of the Brexit deal the United Kingdom should pursue with Europe.

Among those rallying around the prime minister was environment minister Michael Gove - a prominent campaigner to exit the European Union alongside Johnson for the 2016 referendum - who said he would not follow suit by resigning. Slightly more likely was a welter of resignations among the Cabinet's heavyweight Leavers.

Leavers who try to stop the prime minister's "soft Brexit" risk wrecking the whole process of withdrawal and toppling the government, Mr Davies said.

Speaking to BBC radio yesterday, he said he hoped Britain would "resist very strongly any attempt to get any further concessions".

Earlier on Monday, the prime minister's office also announced the appointment of Dominic Raab as Brexit secretary, replacing Davis. Euroskeptic Conservative lawmaker Peter Bone said party activists felt "betrayed" by the government plan.

"But I come back to this point, if people don't like this proposal what is their alternative?"
