May stares down Brexit plan backlash as ministers quit

British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a meeting in Berlin last week

"You stick it all together, you get quite a good trade deal", said a source who saw the plans, adding that Davis and his colleagues believed they were following the outlines laid down by the prime minister in her latest set-piece speech.

In reply, May did not acknowledge the alternative white paper but referred instead to DExEU's underlying work.

Penning a satirical limerick describing Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan having sex with a goat and calling him a "wankerer" to rhyme with the Turkish capital of Ankara.

Aldridge-Brownhills MP Wendy Morton said: "The Prime Minister is showing the same level of resilience that she always does".

Lord Hague, who despite being a Eurosceptic backed a Remain vote in the 2016 referendum, said that if MPs voted down the UK's final deal with the European Union, "that's the point at which they're going to endanger everything they're trying to achieve".

We have to deliver Brexit or we will be punished at the polls at the next general election.

"The Government now has a song to sing".

"He was not across the full detail of Brexit, he had a wildly optimistic view that was never grounded in reality". She was expected to give a news conference alongside May.

On Tuesday, the president described Johnson as a "friend" who had been "very nice to me, very supportive", even though when Trump suggested in 2015 London had police no-go zones, Johnson, then the capital's mayor, quipped he feared going to NY because of "the real risk of meeting Donald Trump".

May's future is up to the Conservative Party, and President Trump is particularly enthused about one of its members, Boris Johnson, stating that he "is a friend of mine".

Turkey's Erdogan unveils new cabinet
There are 16 ministers in Erdogan's streamlined new cabinet, which Erdogan has said will be more efficient and act faster. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the new cabinet members hours after he was sworn in late Monday.

The Tory MPs, led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, have tabled four amendments to the Trade Bill which would destroy key parts of the Brexit agreement reached by Cabinet last Friday.

The former minister also sent a clear message for those itching for a second Brexit referendum, saying they lacked a necessary understanding of the situation. This is complete and utter chaos.

Theresa May has warned hardline Brexiters to fall into line or risk handing power to Jeremy Corbyn after Boris Johnson became the second cabinet minister to resign in 24 hours, claiming Britain was "headed for the status of colony". "The Prime Minister can't deliver Brexit and has zero authority left".

Born Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, he is also known for his displays of questionable sportsmanship. "We will do this in a way which will be a smooth and orderly Brexit".

Some cabinet Brexiters, including Andrea Leadsom and Michael Gove, backed it.

Rees-Mogg made a call to arms for the Euroskeptics in his own party and across the country to reject the consensus achieved within the Cabinet.

But the leader of the Scottish Conservatives Ruth Davidson said Mrs May was "correct to accept the Foreign Secretary's resignation".

Earlier, Downing Street announced Johnson's resignation as foreign secretary, just minutes before May addressed MPs about the softer Brexit plan agreed at Chequers on Friday.

"Politicians come and go but the problems they have created for people remain", said Mr Tusk.

Pro-Europeans want to retain close economic ties with the bloc and its market of 500 million people, while some, but not all, Brexit supporters want a clean break to make it possible to strike new trade deals around the world.
