Brexiteers in plan to shift May on European Union deal

What's happening now with Brexit

After the Prime Minister unveiled her Brexit plan to cabinet ministers, resignations came thick and fast on Thursday, with Brexit secretary Dominic Raab, work and pensions secretary Esther McVey and more.

Mr Barclay's appointment came after Mr Gove reportedly turned down the post after saying he would only take it if he could renegotiate the European Union withdrawal agreement.

British media also reported that several pro-Brexit senior Conservatives, including House of Commons leader Andrea Leadsom, are working to persuade May to change her Brexit plans and renegotiate the divorce deal to make it more acceptable to them.

The consequences of a no-deal, hard Brexit would be felt by companies and workers in Britain and across Europe, Kempf added.

At least 48 Conservative MPs are required to submit letters of no confidence in the party leader to trigger a vote, and 23 have publicly confirmed they had done so.

A United Kingdom minister who was involved in negotiations with the Gibraltar Government to ensure continued post-Brexit access to the United Kingdom market for Gibraltar-based firms was last night appointed Brexit Secretary by Prime Minister Theresa May. In the end, May claimed that her deal will let London and Brussels divorce smoothly but "not letting it drag on forever" - the promise which critics say is impossible to deliver.

The government also announced replacements for two junior ministers who resigned over Mrs May's deal.

The BBC said May had offered him the job of Brexit minister but he had rejected the job.

The proposal raises the bar for proving that failure, saying schools must be "deliberately indifferent" to be held legally liable. It also allows schools to use a higher standard of proof to determine if a student should be found responsible for misconduct.

Holding a referendum would take months so the European Union would have to be asked for more time as the United Kingdom is now on course to leave at 2300 GMT on March 29, 2019. She also laid into political opponents, saying the alternatives they favor to tackle a key stumbling block - the issue of how to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland after Brexit - wouldn't resolve the problem.

He added: "How bad the phrase "no deal.' From here on in we should call it 'a Clean Global Brexit".

Mr Barclay had not been widely regarded as a front runner for the new Brexit ministerial post and has not been thought of as a prominent spokesman for the vote leave campaign.

May has apparently reached a crucial stage in which her leadership is being put to the test.

"We need a decisive 60/40 vote to realistically conclude the national debate on this critical issue".

Mr Raab said he could not in good conscience support the 585-page draft pact.

But when she asked who that could be, he said he had "no idea".

Fresh speculation about a leadership challenge was fuelled on Friday morning as it was revealed all Conservative Party Whips had been ordered to cancel constituency engagements and return to Westminster. But that's not what Sarah Mayall, holding aloft a white placard reading "Leave Means Leave", says she wanted in 2016 when she ticked the box to leave the EU. In recent years, however, this argument for democratic control has been embellished with another claim, that Britain could strike better trade deals outside the European Union, and grow richer.
