Tory divisions grow as PM refuses to accept 'Pointless' Brexit delay

Duty-free shopping to return under no-deal Brexit

Mr Johnson said last week he has no intention of seeking an extension and would rather "die in a ditch" than delay Brexit.

"What we are going to do with that legislation is test very carefully what it does and doesn't require and that's not only the lawful thing to do, I think that's the responsible thing to do", Raab said. They are also seeking to delay Brexit if a deal can not be reached before the current deadline.

"Farage wants to keep Boris Johnson in power so the Tories can continue to wreck our industries and our jobs as they have always done".

The Prime Minister has received several setbacks in Parliament and the threat of prison time caps off a awful week for Mr Johnson.

France isn't prepared to postpone the October 31 deadline for the U.K.'s departure from the European Union "in the current state of things" because the British government isn't providing evidence that they'll offer new solutions to end the Brexit deadlock, French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said.

"The picture our opponents are painting of us, of course they would paint a false picture".

"The EU is not going to postpone every three months", said Le Drian.

The British House of Commons voted on Wednesday for a motion that prohibits a "no-deal Brexit" and that instructs British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to request an extension of the Brexit deadline.

"But we have not seen them and so it is 'no.' let the British authorities tell us the way forward", he said.

There is a meeting of the European Council on October 17-18 and "he will absolutely not be asking for an extension in that meeting", Javid told BBC TV.

James Bond a Woman? Piers Morgan says ‘Not on My Watch’
Brosnan's support for a woman to take over the outgoing Craig's license to kill fired up the franchise's (mostly male) fans. For now, I'm sure the studio is happy to keep the spotlight on No Time To Die .

Adam Tomkins, the Scottish Conservative constitution spokesman and a former professor of law, tweeted yesterday morning: "Irrespective of what we think about Brexit, or the PM, surely we can all agree on one fundamental principle: the government is bound to obey the law".

The opposition only wants new elections after the law against the "no deal" Brexit has been passed.

Rudd is succeeded by Therese Coffey, the Conservative Party announced on Sunday.

In announcing her resignation, Rudd said she cannot "stand by" while "loyal moderate Conservatives are expelled" for defying Johnson's government over Brexit.

"We don't want no-deal, but if we have to we will leave on October 31 with no deal", he said.

The EU has repeatedly said that it will not renegotiate the deal it sealed with May - the deal Johnson has now inherited.

Ministers and officials are "looking very carefully" at the law passed by Parliament last week to force a delay in Brexit until January 31 if Johnson can't get a deal, Raab said.

Wishful thinking? Yes. But, given it is this Parliament which was mandated, in the 2017 election, to deliver Brexit, it should also be its job to get this country out of this predicament before more damage is done to the UK's standing at home and overseas.

The emergence of the bombshell strategy, detailed in The Sunday Times, came as Amber Rudd resigned from the Cabinet and surrendered the Tory whip as she claimed "80 per cent to 90 per cent" of government efforts were now focused on No Deal.

It's a state of affairs too far-fetched for Jeffrey Archer, that noted storyteller, who said at the weekend: "We have reached the state where Yes Minister is becoming credible".
