Theresa May faces guerilla tactics from Brexit rebels

British Prime Minister Theresa May moved to reassert her authority on Tuesday after two top cabinet members quit and launched broadsides against her Brexit plans, winning support from many of her ministers including a leading eurosceptic.

The length of a leadership contest is at the discretion of the 1922 Committee, but the customary period is at least 12 weeks, during which May would have to negotiate with Barnier and the EU.

May has briefed leaders including EU President Donald Tusk and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on her plan and reported a positive response, although they are awaiting the detail.

Anti-Corbyn MPs are likely to be annoyed by Davis and Johnson jumping ship, with many concerned it now leaves the door wide open for the Labour leader. "We will do this in a way which will be a smooth and orderly Brexit".

The plans being set out in the white paper have already triggered two cabinet resignations.

Brussels has repeatedly warned it will not accept "cherry-picking" of elements of its single market.

"That doesn't work, somebody else could do a better job than me".

'We'd rather watch England take penalties in the World Cup final than see Britain go into the final round of Brexit negotiations so disunified'.

"If they do a deal like that, it will most likely, because we'll be dealing with the European Union, instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal, if they do a deal like that, their trade deal with the USA will probably not be made", Mr. Trump said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will publish details Thursday of her long-awaited Brexit plan to restart talks with the European Union, after facing down a revolt by eurosceptic ministers that could still unseat her.

"And I think without David Davis there, without his imprimatur, it will be very hard for them to get the support of Conservative MPs and therefore the Prime Minister would be well advised to reconsider them". These have all but stalled because of her reticence of show her cards until now for fear of angering one of the two main factions of her party.

But the furore has gained the attention of her allies.

"He's been very, very supportive and very nice to me".

"I developed a very close personal rapport with him, we worked closely together on many regional and global challenges and developed a strong friendship", she said.

A long-awaited blueprint for the UK's relations with the European Union will be published later, with ministers vowing to deliver a "practical and principled" Brexit. "To have free movement would, in my view, be a betrayal of what the people voted for in the referendum". Euroskeptic Conservative lawmaker Peter Bone said party activists felt "betrayed" by the government plan.

The resignation of such high-profile figures puts Prime Minister May in a vulnerable position, with pro-Brexit facets considering a no-confidence vote that could knock her out of power. "The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of Dominic Raab MP as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union", a statement from May's office said. But within 48 hours of their publication, Davis had quit, saying she had already given too much away to the European Union, and Johnson followed.

"That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

There was a crisis in government, he said, adding: "It is clear this government can not secure a good deal for Britain".

The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper, which has long argued for Brexit, said May had made "blunder after blunder".
