WhatsApp rebellion: ex-minister rallies Brexit hawks against UK PM May

Tomorrow is shaping up to be "super Wednesday" for Theresa May as she attempts to shore up her position ahead of the parliamentary summer break.

Noting the deep divisions in government and parliament on the way forward, Greening said voters must decide - becoming the most senior member of May's Conservative party to back the idea.

There will be a chance for them to take revenge in the Commons today when MPs pass their judgement on amendments to another crucial piece of Brexit legislation, the Trade Bill.

David Davis quit as Brexit minister and Boris Johnson stepped down as foreign minister last week over May's Brexit blueprint, which would keep Britain economically close to the EU.

Mr Davis, who spent just four hours with the EU's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier since the start of the year, accused the European Union of being "slow and not very effective" at negotiating free trade agreements. He said that he had taken the "very hard decision" to resign "to express discontent" in votes.

Increasingly visible figures such as Jacob Rees-Mogg have branded the prime minister's approach to Brexit negotiations "hopeless" and accused her of allowing too much ground to Brussels.

The prime minister's office defended the government's decision, saying that it was still consistent with the previous government policy.

Original series creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain will return to the new series as executive producers. For instance, Chuckie was the kid who was scared of everything, meanwhile, Tommy was the de facto leader.

Reports at the weekend suggested that about 40 of the 48 MPs needed had lodged no-confidence letters with the chairman of the party's backbench 1922 Committee after May had indicated that the United Kingdom was prepared to sign up to a "common rule book" for food and goods after Brexit.

If parliament does finish for summer earlier than expected, there will not be enough time for Tory MPs to hold a no confidence vote against the PM.

Some Brexiteers, including Mr Thomson, believe the Chequers plan will keep the United Kingdom too closely tied to the EU. She added: "I have always said I'm in this for the long term".

On Monday, May gave in to Tory hardliners by accepting four amendments to the bill, underpinned by her Brexit white paper, meant to toughen up her negotiating stance.

Remain MPs were left furious last night after four amendments to a tax bill, tabled by hard-line Brexit lobby group European Research Group, were backed by Mrs May.

Key New Labour figures have also come forward in criticising the prime minister, with former leader Tony Blair branding the proposals "just mush".
