British Prime Minister Theresa May leaves Lancaster House in London

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe was blunter, warning that Britain and the European Union needed to prepare themselves "for the possibility of a "no-deal" Brexit".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he did not believe the text met the needs of the country, while the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which is propping up the Conservative Party minority government through a confidence and supply agreement, has vowed to vote down the deal.

"I've seen no plausible alternative plan from any of those criticizing her or wanting to challenge her position", Lidington said.

"It's not everybody's ideal deal".

CONSERVATIVE MPs in the Portsmouth region have rallied behind prime minister Theresa May, following a number of resignations over Brexit.

Your opinion is valuable.

But the pair and three other cabinet Eurosceptics - Andrea Leadsom, Penny Mordaunt and Chris Grayling - were meeting over the weekend to try and force May to change her Brexit plans, the BBC and The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported.

Express.co.uk carried out an online "People's Poll" after the publication of the draft agreement, showing only 6,880 respondents would support the deal while 2,592 said they were unsure.

"I think it's absolutely vital that we focus on getting the right deal in the future, and making sure that in the areas that matter so much to the British people we can get a good outcome", he said.

Writing in The Sun, May said there's "no alternative plan on the table" to her deal with the European Union, and rejection by parliament risks sending Britain "back to square one with all the division and uncertainty that comes with it".

May, who is diabetic and relies on insulin, had an air of steely composure as she talked candidly about her marriage, her faith, and how she copes with plotters within her own Conservative Party.

Mr Powell's comments highlight the growing complexity the Fed faces as it sets policy. "We have an important job that Congress has assigned".

Although May told the British news outlet that she has not considered resigning, angry rebels within her own party are trying to gather the necessary numbers to trigger a no-confidence vote.

Scottish Secretary David Mundell also pledged his support for May amid what he called the "unprecedented onslaught".

Mundell said he has reservations about the draft deal but other alternatives were "even more unpalatable".

"He will be doing the domestic role", May's spokesman said.

Theresa May's "deal"' is in two parts - a withdrawal agreement that includes half-baked proposals for a backstop, and a political declaration that is incredibly vague and opens the gate to a hard Tory Brexit. I don't support a no deal, I support the PM.

Eurosceptic MPs fear the deal would keep Britain shackled to Brussels long after Brexit on March 29, 2019.

More than two years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, it is still unclear how, on what terms or even if the world's fifth largest economy will leave the bloc as planned on March 29, 2019.

It followed reports he issued Mrs May with an ultimatum saying he would only replace Dominic Raab if he could scrap the draft withdrawal agreement and re-negotiate with the EU.

"A change of leadership at this point isn't going to make the negotiations any easier ... what it will do is mean that there is a risk that actually we delay the negotiations and that is a risk that Brexit gets delayed or frustrated".
