Ex-minister backs new Brexit vote as eurosceptics pressure May

The final decision should be given back to the people and out of "deadlocked politicians" hands, Ms Greening said.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, he said: "I fear that elements of the Brexit white paper will inevitably put me into direct conflict with the views expressed by a large section of my constituents".

Others include Johnson's PPS Conor Burns and transport PPS Chris Green, whose resignation tweet garnered a strong reaction from one of his Conservative colleagues.

"The only way we can deal with that is to go to the people".

Jacob Rees-Mogg, the chairman of the ERG, told the BBC "we'll have an idea of the numbers at 10pm on Monday evening" while one ERG insider added that they were "intensely relaxed" about the number of rebels they had signed up.

The level of support they attract will draw intense focus, particularly if the number significantly exceeds the 48 required to call for a vote of no confidence in May's leadership of the Conservative party.

Tory Witney MP Robert Courts resigned as a parliamentary aide Sunday night in protest at the PM's Chequers plan, and on Monday morning, Scott Mann, the MP for North Cornwall, also stepped down.

Mr Courts announced on Twitter he has taken the "very hard decision" to resign as a parliamentary private secretary (PPS) in order to vote against the government on its trade bill on Monday. He added: "I can not tell the people of WOxon [West Oxfordshire] that I support the proposals in their current form". It was dedicated to "global Britain", the slogan or theme of his two years at the Foreign Office.

The raft of resignations leaves Prime Minster May with a significant Brexit headache, with many ministers warning that a split may be on the way.

Finnish Newspaper Greets Trump and Putin With Billboards Defending 'Free Press'
None of the charges allege Trump advisers colluded with Russian Federation to interfere with the presidential campaign. President Donald Trump is describing the European Union as a "foe" in an interview taped in Scotland.

Defending his record in office he added "don't tell me that the United Kingdom is losing diplomatic influence" citing the worldwide response to the Novichok poisoning which saw 28 countries expel 153 "Russian spooks".

Trump offered a suggestion to May's Brexit problem. "It's time we shared their confidence".

Asked if now was the moment for Johnson to lead the country, Bannon, who was sacked by the White House in August 2017, said: "I believe moments come".

She said it would allow Britain to control migration, end the jurisdiction of European Union courts and forge its own trade policy - despite US President Donald Trump saying the prime minister's plan could "kill" a US-UK trade deal.

Business Secretary Greg Clark warned Tory would-be rebels against supporting amendments tabled by arch-Brexiteers, saying they risked harming the country's ability to trade after leaving the European Union.

"It's also quite likely to be either rejected by the European Union or more demands will be made upon it so it will be even less acceptable".

"These are desperate times for our weak Prime Minister, and opportunists in her party such as Greening will use any opportunities to cast themselves as the solution for their failing party", blasted UKIP in a statement.

The bill is also due to have its third reading on Monday, and it could be in jeopardy if the angry Tory Brexiters join with Labour, the SNP and the Lib Dems, who are expected to vote against it.
