PM May urges her party to back EU Brexit plan - spokesman

Mr. Johnson's dramatic resignation on Monday just hours after Brexit Minister David Davis quit late on Sunday sent reverberations through Westminster - and beyond.

Global trade secretary Liam Fox was seen to shake his head and mouth the word "no" when reporters asked him on his way out of cabinet whether he was about to quit.

Jeremy Hunt, appointed foreign secretary as May carried out a hurried reshuffle of her top team, vowed that he would be "four square" behind her in driving through her Brexit plan.

And Mr Gove told ITV News he was "absolutely not" planning to resign.

Asked whether May was in trouble following the rash of departures from her government on Monday, he replied: "No". "I hope you have a lovely day".

May, who has tried to keep calm and carry on, said in a tweet that it was a "productive Cabinet meeting" and that she was "looking forward to a busy week". "And sending our best wishes to @England for tomorrow!"

They were announced less than an hour before May was due to face the press alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel at an worldwide summit in London.

Lord Hague said the proposals agreed at Chequers were "the most that can be achieved within the inevitable and inescapable constraints".

Johnson has so far remained out of the spotlight since he resigned, and there has been little comment from potential leadership contender, leading pro-Brexit lawmaker, Jacob Rees-Mogg, who has been critical of May's proposals.

Former leader Lord Howard said a bid to oust Mrs May would be "extremely foolish and extremely ill-advised". 'There is a whole range of scenarios in which they get no Brexit, or an indefinitely delayed Brexit, or a change of government or a second referendum, ' he told Radio 4's Today programme.

They will demand the government scrap its offer to collect tariffs on behalf of the European Union when the Customs Bill returns for debate - a crucial element of the prime minister's plan for a "facilitated customs arrangement".

There appears to be no immediate challenge to Ms May's leadership, as the Brexit hardliners simply do not have the numbers, and her Conservative Party seems set to weather this storm, despite deep divisions on the issue.

Mr Buckland added that there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately".

May was thought to have united her Cabinet last week over the Chequers plan, which would see the U.K. leave the single market but follow a "common rule book" for trade with the EU. This policy will be bad for our country and bad for the party.

"Because I've already cleared the existing text with Mrs Merkel". Speaking as he signed a joint EU-NATO declaration with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Tusk was apparently alluding to Trump's upcoming meeting with Vladimir Putin when he said "it is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem". "It should be a chance to do things differently", adding "that dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

The two resignations have left May badly exposed and raised questions over whether she will stand firm in her commitment to pursuing a "business-friendly" Brexit, or will be faced with more resignations and calls to quit herself.
