Theresa May issues DEMOCRACY WARNING ahead of MP 'coup' to STOP Brexit

While a large majority of party members, according to polling, want Corbyn to actively seek a new referendum, the Labour leader has previously said it is more likely he would push to take the United Kingdom out of Europe with a different deal.

Writing in the Sunday Express, Mrs May said the Commons vote on her Brexit withdrawal deal would be the "biggest and most important decision that any MP of our generation will be asked to make".

Lawmakers fired ominous warning shots this week, voting to force May to quickly set out an alternative plan for Brexit if it is beaten.

Jeremy Corbyn has pledged Labour will call a no-confidence motion in Theresa May's government "soon", while again indicating that if he became prime minister he would prefer to negotiate his own Brexit deal rather than call a second referendum.

Mrs May said: "When you turned out to vote in the referendum, you did so because you wanted your voice to be heard". We can not - and must not - let you down.

"Doing so would be a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy", May said.

Described as "a very British coup", the plan would see May lose control of parliamentary business to MPs, threatening her ability to govern, according to the newspaper.

My message to Parliament this weekend is simple: it is time to forget the games and do what is right for our country.

MPs will gather at Westminster Monday to resume their marathon debate on the Brexit bill ahead of the vote early Tuesday evening. However, with more than 100 Tory MPs opposing the deal, it is expected to be rejected.

Mr Hunt warned that failure to deliver Brexit would be "incredibly damaging" for the United Kingdom and something the country would regret for "many, many generations".

Just days before the critical vote, Mr Grayling, who campaigned to leave the European Union, told the Daily Mail: "People have to think long and hard about how they are going to vote".

He said if it is defeated, Britain should continue to press the European Union for a deal that "respects the referendum but if Brussels' "intransigence" persists "we must be willing to leave the European Union at the end of March on World Trade Organisation terms".

Labour peer Lord Andrew Adonis, who is a prominent Remainer, slammed Grayling and in a tweet wrote: "At the end of Brexit there should a one clause bill banning Grayling from holding any further public office ... unless of course it's overturned by a people's vote".
