"Fanatical" pro-Brexit lawmakers pushing United Kingdom towards new…

EU referendum bill debate

The Welsh MP who resigned from the UK Government over Brexit says Theresa May must "reassert" herself and "stand up to the bully-boy tactics" of Tory hardliners like Jacob Rees-Mogg.

However, the danger to the Prime Minister was underlined by the disclosure that Brexiteers had set up a Whatsapp group to co-ordinate voting tactics, organised by ex-Brexit minister Steve Baker, who quit over the Chequers plan.

The Prime Minister will be grilled by senior MPs on the Commons liaison committee on her Brexit plans and will then appear before the 1922 Committee of Tory backbenchers with the task of rallying their spirits.

The Blackley and Broughton MP broke ranks to vote against the customs union amendment.

Downing Street rejected calls for a national unity government and a spokesman for Mr Corbyn said Labour would not back such a move. "We'll have an idea of the numbers, I suppose, at 10 o'clock on Monday evening".

MPs voted 307 to 301 to overturn the rebel amendment to the trade bill.

Former Education Secretary Justine Greening is calling for a second Brexit referendum, saying that the public need a 'clear route forward'.

Conservative International Trade Minister Liam Fox argued that the legislation will provide "stability and continuity" to companies until the United Kingdom can reach its own trade deals at the end of the 21-month transition period following Brexit, which will be enacted on March 29, 2019.

"I know there are some who have concerns about the "common rule book" for goods and the customs arrangements which we have proposed will underpin the new UK-EU free trade area".

Under fire, Donald Trump says he misspoke on Russian Federation election meddling
To rectify the situation, Trump held a news conference the very next day where he said he simply misspoke. Trump then added that "it could be other people also, there's a lot of people out there".

Defeat for the Prime Minister would mean an election to choose a new leader, in which she would not be allowed to stand.

Also in the chamber was another recently-departed minister - Boris Johnson.

"It is time for all of us - at this critical moment in our constitutional development - to believe in ourselves, to believe in the British people and what they can do, and in our democracy", he wrote.

Most traders believe Britain will avoid a so-called hard exit from the European Union, in which trade ties are minimal, but the pound remains highly sensitive to political uncertainty and bearish sentiment.

"We have time in these negotiations".

"This government is in grave danger of not just losing the plot but losing a considerable amount of support from the people of this country unless we get Brexit right", she said.

"While I was delivering a plan for our future trade with the European Union, he was delivering a plan to teach children how to go on strike".

Mr Corbyn asked the PM to "guarantee that her Cabinet ministers will fully co-operate with the police investigation" following the publication of the Electoral Commission report on the official Vote Leave campaign, which was backed by members of her cabinet during the 2016 referendum.

She also claimed Mr Corbyn sought to "renegotiate the definition of anti-Semitism" while she talked about the future security relationship with the European Union, adding: "He protests, I deliver".
