Ministers in revolt over May’s Brexit concessions

  • Dutch PM 'cautiously optimistic' about progress on Brexit talks

The only other option they have offered the United Kingdom is to keep Northern Ireland in the customs union and divide the United Kingdom with checks in the Irish Sea - something the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) has roundly rejected.

The prime minister is rumoured to be making a statement later on Friday to clarify her position.

Amid signs that a cabinet mutiny is already growing, The Sunday Times reports that Mrs May now faces an onslaught from at least nine ministers wanting her to change her Brexit policy when the cabinet meets on Tuesday.

With continued speculation that Leave-supporting Cabinet ministers could resign if Mrs May presses ahead with the plan, David Davis said: "This is one of the most fundamental decisions that government has taken in modern times".

THERESA May's allies have moved to reassure the DUP that is she is still "a very Unionist Prime Minister".

On Saturday evening, German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung reported a deal had already been reached between Mrs May and the European Union, and would be announced on Monday.

"We are in a period of uncertainty because of the Brexit negotiations", Hammond said in an interview in Bali, where finance ministers are gathered for meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. "I want to believe that we will be able to find a deal with our British friends between the European Council meeting next week and the possible one in November", Juncker told French newspaper Le Monde.

Ahead of a crucial summit of European Union leaders next week, May "briefed her inner cabinet. that a historic Brexit deal is close", the Financial Times reported on Thursday.

The Irish border "backstop", which seeks to avoid extensive checks on the frontier between the British province of Northern Ireland and EU state Ireland should the open border there not be maintained by a new, post-Brexit EU-UK trade partnership, is the biggest sticking point.

They will go on through the weekend and diplomatic sources in Brussels expect Raab to come on Monday if there is a deal.

But a spokesman for Downing Street told Daily Star Online "there are no plans" for the PM to make a public announcement about her proposals for Brexit.

The stark research by the Edelman public affairs consultancy found that while May needs 320 votes to secure a majority, she can rely on the support of only 277 of the 314 Tory MPs and two former Tories who now sit as independents.

It predicts that 18 of the 37 hardline Tory Brexiters are "potentially persuadable".

The paper claims Andrea Leadsom, the leader of the Commons, is said to be "considering her position". One high-profile case came earlier this month when the BBC reported that San Francisco-based Recardio would suspend clinical trial activities in the United Kingdom of the drug heart drug dutogliptin due to concerns about how medicines will be approved after Brexit and whether the European Medicines Agency would accept data generated in the UK. "The bad news is that this not only requires reconciling the DUP with the backstop, but also winning over a raft of strongly pro-Brexit Tory MPs and a handful of Labour rebels".
