Theresa May says Cabinet supports her Brexit plan after Chequers summit

After nine hours Downing Street confirmed Mrs May had the backing of her entire Cabinet despite fears there would be multiple resignations.

Mrs May said the Cabinet "has agreed our collective position for the future of our negotiations wit the EU".

For now, May, who has been written off by critics regularly since losing her Conservative Party's parliamentary majority in an ill-judged election previous year, will be buoyed by the hard-won agreement.

Asked what the common rulebook with the European Union on food products would mean for the proposed United States trade deal, Mr Grayling told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "There may be individual issues to address in future trade talks".

He said he looked forward to seeing greater detail on those proposals over the coming days and hoped they would be a helpful input to the negotiation process.

The prime minister is now seeking the support of Conservative MPs for the proposal.

The common rulebook for goods, including food and agricultural products, could limit the UK's ability to strike trade deals with countries such as the USA, for whom securing market access for American farmers would be a big prize. This would allow Britain to set its own import tariffs and seal new free trade deals.

But we also concluded that it was responsible to continue preparations for a range of potential outcomes, including the possibility of "no deal".

If Mrs May's red lines have "turned pink", he said he would not vote for the plan - and claimed a "very soft Brexit means that we haven't left". "May's Brexit means BRINO - "Brexit In Name Only" - a fake Brexit".

Nick Kyrgios SLAMS former Wimbledon champion after ‘pathetic’ jibe
Win or lose, the 2016 Wimbledon junior finalist has assured himself another career-high ranking inside the world's top 70. Kyrgios , seeded 15, arrived at Wimbledon in good form after strong runs on the grass in Stuttgart and at Queen's Club.

Meanwhile, pro-EU Labour politician Chuka Umunna described it as "yet another behind-closed-doors stitch up that would leave us all worse off".

She said: "We must all move at pace to negotiate our proposal with the European Union".

As she held the crisis talks with her ministers, the chief executive of European plane maker Airbus, Tom Enders, accused the government of having "no clue or at least consensus on how to execute Brexit without severe harm".

Davis and the PM's chief Brexit official Olly Robbins will travel to Brussels to start to work their way through the details of the document with Michel Barnier and his team.

Her inner circle is now trying to secure support for the plan, which will include a "common rule book for industrial goods and agricultural products".

She said the common rulebook would mean "British businesses will continue to be a rule-taker from the EU".

The jurisdiction of the European court of justice (ECJ) over the United Kingdom will end, but trade would be subject to binding independent arbitration in the event of any disputes- and crucially the United Kingdom would take regard of the ECJ as "the interpreter of EU rules".

The UK would of course continue to play a strong role in shaping the worldwide standards that underpin them, and Parliament would have oversight of the incorporation of these rules into the UK's legal order - with the ability to choose not to do so, recognising that this would have consequences.

"But of course we still have lots of work to do in ensuring with the European Union we get to the end point in October. But this is good".
