With more than 80 Conservative MPs - from both the Leave and Remain sides - threatening to vote against the agreement, Mr Raab warned it is unlikely to get through the Commons and said ministers should consider leaving without a deal.

Raab, who quit in protest over May's draft withdrawal agreement, which ties the United Kingdom into a temporary customs union with the EU, added that the deal would leave the United Kingdom worse off than staying in the EU.

Speaking on the BBC's Question Time, which was broadcast in Cannock near Birmingham on Thursday evening, the man expressed his frustration at the PM's latest Brexit agreement.

"And for those who are passionately committed to ensuring that we leave the European Union on the 29th of March, 2019, one of the things that they are going to have to bear in mind is the possibility that, in that chaos that would ensue, there may be no Brexit".

He added: "It could be no deal, but it could be no Brexit, we just don't know. What we end up with is more uncertainty and more division".

The Prime Minister is facing demands from MPs across the political spectrum to abandon her plan and go back to the negotiating table.

Earlier, former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab, a committed Leaver who quit last week over the Withdrawal Agreement, said he believes the terms are so bad the United Kingdom would be better off remaining in the EU. "My job is to persuade people in Parliament of that view". Even she can't bring herself to say Brexit will make the country stronger than staying in the EU.

She told BBC Radio Ulster's Inside Politics: "If she is successful in parliament, and there is no evidence that she is going to be successful in parliament, then of course we will have to revisit the confidence and supply agreement". "I'm not going to advocate staying in the European Union", the pro-Brexit Conservative told BBC Radio 4′s Today programme.

Downing Street this morning denied the government was planning to force MPs to vote a second time on the deal if it was rejected the first time.

Best for Britain champion David Lammy MP said: "This is a huge concession from the prime minister".
