MP says Cabinet's Brexit agreement should not be diluted

Dominic Raab replaces David Davis as new Brexit secretary

Britain's opposition Labour Party, led by socialist Jeremy Corbyn, has taken a lead over the Conservative Party as Prime Minister Theresa May's government grapples with a crisis over Brexit, according to two opinion polls.

This week has seen a major reshuffle in Westminster as two high profile ministers - Brexit secretary David Davis and Foreign secretary Boris Johnson - quit Theresa May's Cabinet following disagreements about how the Brexit negotiations should unfold.

Many eurosceptics accused her of siding with the "Remainers" in her cabinet - those who voted in 2016 to stay in the European Union and have demanded a Brexit that would preserve the complicated supply chains used by many of Britain's biggest companies.

What had been outlined so far has sparked a backlash from Brexiteers and prompted the resignations of David Davis and Boris Johnson.

May's office said a replacement for Davis would be announced Monday.

With nine months before Britain leaves and just over three before the European Union says it wants a deal, May has been under intense pressure from the bloc and from many businesses to show her negotiating position.

"We deliver that Brexit and we do it in a way that protects jobs and livelihoods and meets our commitment to Northern Ireland".

"Brexit should be about opportunity and hope", Johnson said in a scathing resignation letter that was echoed in headlines in a number of Britain's national newspapers. Environment Secretary Michael Gove said Sunday that it did not contain everything he wanted but "I'm a realist".

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", Trump said.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 15 per cent of Conservative lawmakers - now 48 - write a letter requesting one.

Trump Attacks CNN, NBC in Joint Press Conference With British Prime Minister
I have a lot of respect for the prime minister", he added. "I do not take questions from CNN", Trump said. His comments came during a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May .

"Nor do we expect a leadership challenge".

Pro-Europeans want to retain close economic ties with the bloc and its market of 500 million people, while some Brexit supporters want a clean break to make it possible to strike new trade deals around the world.

The plans laid out Thursday in a 98-page government paper gave Britain's most detailed answer yet to the question of what will replace them. The EU has welcomed its publication and said it will respond when it has seen the plans in detail.

"It's a good thing that we have proposals on the table", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said at the Balkans summit in London.

Other elements likely to anger Brexit-backers are Britain's willingness to pay the European Union for access to certain agencies and the suggestion some European Union citizens could continue to work in Britain visa-free.

The trans-Atlantic relationship has had some awkward moments since Trump's election.

"As far as negotiating the deal, I probably would have done what my suggestion was to the prime minister, but she can always do that. I believe that is what people voted for when they voted to leave and we will deliver in faith with the British people", she said.

Even as he tried to pivot away from his criticism of May, Trump did confirm perhaps the most damaging element of the report in The Sun, which quoted him saying that the prime minister had rejected his advice about how to approach Brexit and was therefore headed down a damaging path.

Andrew Bridgen, a Tory backbencher, told the BBC: "I'm very, very disappointed with the offer that we've seen coming out of Chequers".

But prominent Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg described it as a "breakdown in trust" and said Mrs May must now U-turn or be forced to rely on Labour votes to get her legislation through Parliament.
