The four rebel Labour MPs who rescued Theresa May's government

British Prime Minister Theresa May narrowly survived another crunch Brexit vote in Parliament, as she struggles to unify her divided party around her strategy for leaving the European Union.

Ensuring his party that there is still time in the Brexit negotiations, in a 12-minute statement he said: "It is not too late to save Brexit".

A string of ministerial resignations followed, including that of former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis, the former still being touted by a replacement for May should a contest arise.

Shipley MP Philip Davies said he had been contacted by members and voters in his constituency about the Prime Minister's Chequers plan for a "common rulebook" with the European Union on goods and agri-goods, and it was "clear that many people are concerned by this".

Although Varadkar described the no-deal outcome as unlikely, he said preparations were necessary because "we can't make assumptions that the withdrawal agreement will get through Westminster".

Former UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson implored fellow lawmakers not to abandon BREXIT urging them to remember the initial enthusiasm for a sharp break from the EU.

Mr Johnson added that the United Kingdom should aim for the vision of "a strong independent, self-governing Britain" set out at Lancaster House, not the "miserable, permanent limbo" of Chequers.

She re-iterated her support for Theresa May. He actually pulled out of the 2016 leadership race won by May after his campaign manager Michael Gove made a decision to run himself. Johnson suggested it was a vision May herself had shared before the "fog of self-doubt had descended".

"We have time in these negotiations".

And what will be viewed as a call to arms among his Brexiteer colleagues on the backbenches, Mr Johnson demanded Mrs May return to the proposals she set out in her Lancaster House speech in January 2017.

"I thought it was the right vision then; I think it is the right vision, today", he said, insisting it was "not too late" to save Brexit.

Johnson warned against making "the fatal mistake of underestimating the intelligence of the public" by saying one thing to the European Union and pretending to do another thing to the public.

"We have consistently voted to protect people's jobs, wages and standard of living by maintaining our place in the single market and the customs union, but if making it happen requires entering into an all-party government, so be it".

But Irish PM Leo Varakdar has ramped up the rhetoric by issuing an extraordinary threat to block planes from flying over his country to the United Kingdom if the EU's demands are not met.
