Boris Johnson’s new haircut fires up rumor mill about Tory leadership challenge

Theresa May is battling to save her Brexit deal and maintain her grip on power ahead of Tuesday's Commons showdown. "The risk is that we don't have Brexit or we don't have a deal".

But where do MPs actually go to vote before the Ayes and Nos are declared in the House of Commons?

- former Cabinet ministers including Boris Johnson refused to rule out leadership bids.

Mrs May has warned that the country will be "unchartered waters" if the deal is rejected.

"We have a leader of the Opposition who thinks of nothing but attempting to bring about a general election, no matter what the cost to the country".

"As someone who cares passionately about my country and my party, I believe Jeremy Corbyn getting his hands on power is a risk we can not afford to take".

Conservative sources said the government was hoping to reduce the size of tomorrow's defeat to a margin of less than 40, to keep some options open for the Prime Minister.

"I think most people want us to do this, to get it done and get it all wrapped up by Christmas and actually focus on the future", she said.

A No 10 spokesperson said the vote was going ahead on Tuesday as planned and that any other suggestions were "speculation".

Sources told Reuters Mr Ayers would join a political action committee, assisting the President from outside the administration. Trump has been weakened by Democrats winning control of the House of Representatives in congressional elections last month.

He said it would be a "an important week for the fate of Brexit".

The ex-foreign secretary quit the government in July over the Chequers proposal.

She also said in an interview with the Times that she did not rule out a second referendum and made it clear that if there were to be one, she would vote Remain.

Amber Rudd, the work and pensions secretary, broke ranks on Saturdayto become the first cabinet minister to openly suggest alternatives to May's plan.

Mrs May's future after Tuesday is uncertain.

Elsewhere in the capital, a rally will be held by the pro-EU Best for Britain and the second referendum campaign the People's Vote, featuring politicians including Lord Heseltine and celebrities such as actors Charles Dance and Jason Isaacs.

"They might decide to retire or they might decide to abandon the party whip, that has happened before".

"Do not underestimate how much I care about this because this is fundamental to our country and it absolutely breaks my heart to think that -after all that we fought for, all that we campaigned for, all that (Brexit Secretary) Steve Barclay campaigned for, everybody believes in - we should consign ourselves to a future in which the European Union effectively rules us in many respects and yet we have no say round the table in Brussels".
