PM denies DUP deal in peril

The minister, who worked in the Northern Ireland Office, revealed his intention to resign in a letter to the Prime Minister, claiming that the deal fails to extract the United Kingdom from the "shackles" of the EU.

After a night of intensive one-on-one talks with her ministers and she then held a Cabinet meeting the following day.

Answering calls from members of the public on LBC, the prime minister denied that she had had "testy" exchanges yesterday with Arlene Foster, the DUP leader, as she tried to find support for her draft agreement with Brussels.

She strongly defended her draft European Union withdrawal agreement, and said that MPs would do the right thing for their constituents when they voted on it, despite Tory MPs writing letters demanding a vote of no confidence in her leadership.

And various Tory backbenchers, including leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg, said they had submitted letters of no confidence in Mrs May to the chairman of the Conservatives' backbench 1922 Committee.

Rumours are circulating that Environment Secretary Michael Gove is considering whether or not to follow him out of Government.

He said: "The pound and United Kingdom domestic equity exposure have rolled over in tandem over the last few months and today we've seen market confidence shaken by the possibility of a no deal Brexit".

"Leadership is about taking the right decisions, not the easy ones".

Brexit Secretary Dominc Raab MP, Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey MP, Fareham MP Suella Braverman and Northern Ireland minister Shailesh Vara are all amongst the MPs who quit cabinet positions today (November 15).

She said: "No. A lot of people look at this and think the only side that has given anything is the UK".

She acknowledged unhappiness among some with compromises made to secure a withdrawal deal but said it "delivers what people voted for and it is in the national interest" and vowed to "see this through".

Speaking outside the House of Commons, he declined to run for leadership himself - but named Boris Johnson, David Davis, Dominic Raab and Esther McVey and Penny Mordaunt as candidates for PM.

"You're absolutely right that for a lot of people who voted Leave, what they wanted to do was make sure that decisions on things like who can come into this country would be taken by us here in the United Kingdom, and not by Brussels, and that's exactly what the deal I've negotiated delivers", she said. "There is no majority in Parliament for her deal, and she has rightly conceded that "No Brexit" is the real alternative to it".
