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 stand down after deal is passed – BBC News



Theresa May tells Conservative MPs she will not remain as UK PM for the next phase of #Brexit negotiations

Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog
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.”

Remainer MPs vote to seize control of Brexit | LIVE replay



THERESA May today faces fresh pressure to quit – whether or not she manages to force through her Brexit deal.

The PM is being urged to vow she’ll resign in a last-ditch bid to convince Brexiteers they should back her deal in the Commons this week.

And she was warned that if her Brexit strategy collapses, she’ll have no choice but to step down anyway.

The PM is considering holding the third “meaningful vote” on her deal as soon as tomorrow in a high-stakes gamble – if she can win over the DUP.

This morning the Prime Minister summoned Cabinet ministers for a Downing Street summit to lay out the next steps on Brexit – but they didn’t discuss her own future.

During the meeting, ministers clashed over whether they should go for a No Deal Brexit in the event the PM’s deal is defeated for good…

Theresa May refuses to rule out No Deal Brexit as she arrives in Brussels



THERESA May is set to ask the EU for a short Brexit delay today as Brits are “fed up” with politicians’ dithering more than 1,000 days after they voted OUT.

In a sign that the PM is confident she can get her deal pushed through on the third time, officials said today she won’t be asking for a long delay to add more wasted time to the process.

A No10 official said: “PM won’t be asking for a long extension.

“There is a case for giving Parliament a bit more time to agree a way forward, but the people of this country have been waiting nearly three years now.

“They are fed up with Parliament’s failure to take a decision and the PM shares their frustration.”

A long extension could have been up to three YEARS – with a break clause if a deal is finally done…
