PM Theresa May says the 'biggest threat' is the Labour Party



The Prime Minister has been told to her face that for Brexiteers including Boris Johnson to support her deal she will need to promise Tory MPs she will quit before the second stage of EU talks begin later this year. Mrs May will address Tories at a meeting of the backbench 1922 Committee tonight and is expected to be asked to announce her departure date by disgruntled MPs. Today senior Brexiteer Andrea Leadsom did little to quell the rumours of Mrs May’s demise and said: I am fully supporting the Prime Minister to get us out of the EU. What happens after that is a matter for the prime minister’. Jacob Rees-Mogg today urged other hardline Eurosceptics to back Mrs May or face losing Brexit with 20 or more hardcore Brexiteers including Boris Johnson ready to swing behind her if she agrees to quit tonight. Mr Rees-Mogg admits that his change of heart will prompt accusations of treachery from some of his followers but told them: ‘Half a loaf is better than no bread’. Tonight MPs will try to grab the levers of power and push Britain towards a softer Brexit by voting on alternatives to Theresa May’s deal and today the rebellion’s architect Sir Oliver Letwin said the Commons will change the law to force the PM to implement their views. Former Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell said today: ‘Oliver Letwin has played a blinder. My friends and colleagues in the ERG can see the instruments of torture laid out in front of them. Oliver has shown them what will happen if they don’t come on side. Finally Mrs May has most of us on side on her deal, and with a following wind she will get her deal this week or early next week’.

Brexit: Theresa May vows to quit – BBC News



The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has promised Conservative MPs she will quit –if they back her Brexit deal. She said she would make way for someone else to lead the next phase of negotiations with the European Union. The move has led to more party rebels saying they’re now ready to support her withdrawal agreement, although the Democratic Unionist Party, who provide crucial support to Mrs May’s government, say they still won’t back it.

MPs also voted to extend Article 50 to the 12th April, giving the UK two more weeks to secure a deal.

However none of the MPs’ eight proposed options for Brexit, which were voted on in the House of Commons, secured a clear majority leaving the path ahead unclear.

Brexit: Theresa May vows to stand down after deal is passed – BBC News

Downing Street has now officially confirmed what the prime minister told MPs just now. It is pretty striking stuff.

“This has been a testing time for our country and our party,” she said.

“We’re nearly there. We’re almost ready to start a new chapter and build that brighter future. “But before we can do that, we have to finish the job in hand.

“I have heard very clearly the mood of the parliamentary party. I know there is a desire for a new approach – and new leadership – in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations – and I won’t stand in the way of that.”

“I know some people are worried that if you vote for the Withdrawal Agreement, I will take that as a mandate to rush on into phase two without the debate we need to have. I won’t – I hear what you are saying.

“But we need to get the deal through and deliver Brexit.”
