Theresa May faces Commons showdown with Brexit rebels

Theresa May faces Commons showdown with Brexit rebels

Greening claimed there are three Brexit options: the prime minister's final Brexit deal, staying in the European Union, and leaving the European Union with "no deal".

The Government has suffered another resignation as Tory Brexiteers ramp up the pressure on Theresa May to change her blueprint for leaving the European Union.

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.

"We have accepted these amendments because we believe them to be consistent with the approach that was set out and agreed at Chequers", he said.

The size of the threat to her position should become clear on Monday when euroskeptic MPs put forward a series of proposals to toughen up the government's customs legislation during a parliamentary debate.

It was unclear whether they will actually press them to a vote after some pro-EU MPs backed Mrs May's Chequers plan and EU white paper.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, an arch eurosceptic who proposed the amendments, said he did not expect the bill, or another bill on trade due to be debated on Tuesday, to be blocked outright by the 650-member parliament.

Another pro-EU lawmaker Dominic Grieve, who has led previous efforts to get the government to soften its Brexit stance, said the party needed to accept compromises "or accept that Brexit can not be implemented and think again about what we are doing".

Meanwhile Boris Johnson, in his first public intervention since his resignation last week, appealed for people to take a more positive view of Britain's prospects outside the EU.

In sign that he was keeping his powder dry, he said in an article for The Daily Telegraph that he would resist "for now" the temptation "to bang on about Brexit".

Greening said that with divisions in the Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party over how to proceed with Brexit, there should be another vote, with the public able to choose between May's plans, a "no-deal" break with the European Union or remaining in the bloc.

In a BBC television interview on Sunday, Mrs May said she understood the strength of feelings driving the Brexit debate.

While heat from Remain wing of the party has also been turned up, Greening claimed the PM's Brexit plan, contrary to what the she claims, is not what people voted for.

"The Bill is an important part of preparing for the world after Brexit and I would have thought that all colleagues would respect the fact that we need to get those preparations in place whilst having this important negotiation to make sure that our trading arrangement can continue to support prosperity in the future". I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

Some in the pro-EU faction have also rejected the plan.
