Theresa May braced for showdown with Brexit rebels

  • Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves the BBC after appearing on the Andrew Marr Show in central London

But Brexiteers criticised the proposal and warned it would "extend the uncertainty" over Britain's divorce from Brussels.

In a series of votes, May could come under attack from arch-Brexiteers in her own Conservative Party who think her plans have watered down Brexit and will leave Britain shackled to the European Union once it leaves the bloc in March.

"I wouldn't have gone through all the work that I did to reach that agreement only to see it changed in some way through these bills", she told parliament.

Justine Greening has claimed senior Tories are ready to break ranks and join her in calling for a second Brexit referendum as Eurosceptics said Theresa May's compromise plan was "dead".

May has vowed to stick to her plan to negotiate the closest possible trade ties with the European Union, saying her strategy was the only one that could meet the government's aims for Brexit, the biggest shift in Britain's foreign and trade policy for decades.

The PM insisted accepting the amendments does not change her Chequers plan, but not all Tory MPs agree with her. According to an Opinium poll for the Observer, support for the Tories has dropped by six percentage points since the beginning of June to 36 percent, with Labour at 40 percent.

"This is a time to be practical and pragmatic - backing our plan to get Britain out of the European Union on 29 March next year and delivering for the British people".

"Any of those who think that they can either criticize her, challenge her or anything like that must realize that they are playing with fire and that they will end up destroying themselves", Duncan said on Sky's "Sophy Ridge on Sunday" program.

Mr Davis meanwhile branded claims that there was no alternative to the Chequers plan as "astonishingly dishonest".

"But in practice having looked through the detail now it just won't and I can not see how, going forward, the common rulebook will be workable in practice".

If we wanted to extend the uncertainty for another long period this is one way of doing it.

The amendments to the Customs Bill appear to signal a sharp change in direction compared to the white paper agreed at Chequers just 11 days ago, which subsequently sparked a string of resignations by Brexit-supporting members of Theresa May's government.

Some in the pro-EU faction have also rejected the plan.

A Welsh Conservative MP has quit as a minister so he could vote against the government on its Brexit Customs Bill. He said he did not expect the bill, or another bill on trade due to be debated on Tuesday, to be blocked outright by the 650-member parliament.

A YouGov poll of 1,732 voters for The Times found that 39% felt the Chequers deal did not respect the result of the referendum, and 42% felt the deal would not be good for Britain, compared to 13% who thought it would.

Business minister Greg Clark urged party members to get behind the prime minister's plan: "When it comes to parliament I hope and expect that it will be persuasive that what is on offer will be good for the United Kingdom, it would be good for every part of the United Kingdom".
