Theresa May warned failure to deliver Brexit would be 'catastrophic'

GETTYMrs May declared she would be content to “win by one vote”

However, the signs that the government is starting from scratch - almost one year after customs plans were first published and just four days before the Chequers showdown - "are certain to add to criticism of Brexit chaos" says The Independent. "In our manifesto, all of us, Brexiters and Remainers, we stood on that manifesto that we would deliver Brexit".

Brexiteer Rees-Mogg, tipped as a potential Tory leader, had used an opinion piece in Monday's Daily Telegraph to warn the Prime Minister she must deliver what she promised - the United Kingdom leaving the single market and customs union and outside the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice - or risk her administration.

Ms Jenkyns, who resigned as a ministerial aide so she could speak more freely about the issue, said such a course would be a disaster for her party.

In a Twitter message on Monday night Ms Jenkyns put Brexiteer cabinet ministers on notice, urging them to "show your steel" at Friday's meeting.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg said he and other members of the 60-strong group of Eurosceptic Tory MPs he leads would reject a deal that did not amount to a clean break with the EU. "I am sure that she will deliver a Brexit that is entirely consistent with the promises she has made".

Business minister Richard Harrington said: "I do wish people would stop putting their own dogma above the good of the country and the Party. I fully support the prime minister, but I can not guarantee to support a policy that doesn't deliver on the manifesto commitments", he told Channel 4 News.

"They're not going to trust the party".

Insisting that the red lines remained intact Mr Gove said: "The prime minister has a clear plan which will ensure that Britain can leave the EU, be outside the single market and customs union, maintain as frictionless access as possible to the European market and also ensure that we take back control of our laws and our borders".

With the clock ticking toward a March departure date and passions running high, May is holding a meeting of senior ministers on Friday at which she will pitch a compromise third option, ITV political editor Robert Peston said.

The two original competing options for a post-Brexit deal have split the Cabinet and received the cold shoulder in Brussels.

Theresa May will attempt to break the deadlock within her cabinet and the European Union with a new "third way" post-Brexit customs proposal.

"I don't think so, no", Gove told the BBC in an interview when asked if any ministers will be resigning.
