Brexit: Third customs model devised ahead of cabinet talks

Theresa May has warned her'Brexit bully critics she will fight on if they try to oust her- meaning rebels will need the backing of 159 Tory MPs to bring her down Brexit: Third customs model devised ahead of cabinet talks - BBC

"Ministers continue to work closely with business to understand their concerns, and by successfully negotiating the implementation period with the European Union until December 2020, companies can carry on trading with confidence on the same terms as they do now".

A cabinet minister for the Foreign Office, Alan Duncan, responding to Hoare's tweet, accused Rees-Mogg of "lecturing and threatening the PM", telling him that he and his right wing friends should "pipe down".

Friends of Jacob Rees-Mogg are turning to PR firms as the backbencher looks to turn support into votes as a future leader of the Conservative party.

Mrs May has faced repeated warnings that senior figures in her government are on manoeuvres in preparation for a leadership battle.

He insisted he was "confident" Mrs May would deliver the Brexit she had promised, but warned the PM that backsliding could result in splitting the party like Sir Robert Peel, who plunged it into the political wilderness for almost three decades following bitter divisions over trade reforms.

Firms are running out of patience over the lack of progress in the Brexit talks, a major business organisation has warned Theresa May.

"One former Tory leader, Sir Robert Peel, chose to break his manifesto pledge and passed legislation with the majority of his party voting the other way".

Furthermore, the chair of the pro-leave European Research Group (ERG) warned that May could put the Conservatives out of office for years, just like another leader, Robert Peel.

"At least he did so for a policy that works. At Chequers the prime minister must stick to her righteous cause and deliver what she has said she would, she must use her undoubted grace to persevere".

Many are in awe of the way manager Gareth Southgate , 47, has brought the team together. The Mail On Sunday online edition said, "The Dream Goes On!"

Mr Rees-Mogg's intervention prompted a furious backlash from Remain-voting Tories.

Simon Hoare, MP for North Dorset, took to Twitter to tell Rees-Mogg: "The hectoring nonsense / blackmail has to stop, the reality of parliamentary arithmetic dawn and the calamity of a Corbyn Government woken up to".

The influential Brexiteer has written a column for the Telegraph newspaper in which he appears to make a veiled threat to the Prime Minister. "I am sure that she will deliver a Brexit that is entirely consistent with the promises she has made".

The comments come ahead of a crunch meeting Friday where May's Cabinet will try to hammer out a unified position on the U.K.'s future relationship with the European Union after months of very public disagreement.

Both previous customs models, the so-called "customs partnership" and "max fac" solution reliant on new technologies to avoid border checks, have been rejected by various sections of the cabinet.

Prime Minister May will try to clarify business concerns during Cabinet crunch talks on Brexit at her Chequers retreat on Friday.

May is under pressure from eurosceptics in her Conservative Party to keep her promise of a clean break with the European Union, but she is also running out of time to reach a deal with Brussels. In the hope a truce can be agreed between her feuding ministers, the strategy will be set out in a white paper the following week.

She said: "The EU and its member states will want to consider our proposals seriously".
