UK Minister quits over Theresa May's Brexit plan

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May

Earlier, the chief of Britain's defence staff General Sir Nicholas Carter said the armed forces were making "sensible" contingency plans on Brexit and other issues.

Mr Johnson said that he had supported Brexit after the 2016...

They have covered areas like aviation safety, civilian nuclear power, medical drugs, the rights of British citizens living in the European Union, road haulage and fishing rights.

Ahead of a conference of the Eurosceptic Bruges Group on Saturday, Tory MP Mark Francois also said further ministerial resignations could not be ruled out. "We are now faced with the reality of that in the form of the deal that the prime minister is about to bring back before parliament". "Our energy is focused on getting a deal", a source said.

In marked contrast to his brother, who remains firm that leaving the European Union without a deal would be no bad thing, and resigned because he believed the deal being negotiated was too soft, Mr. Jo Johnson called for a second referendum.

But if parliament rejects the Brexit deal the Prime Minister is now finalising, a second referendum - the "people's vote" - may prove the only way of resolving the unprecedented political and constitutional crisis.

Thornberry told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "Theresa May is simply giving us a devil in the deep blue sea - she's saying you can either fall off a cliff or get on this bridge to nowhere, and you're going to have to vote on that".

Downing Street spokesman said the referendum "was the biggest democratic exercise in this country's history".

British PM Theresa May's office on Friday reiterated her position that there will not, under any circumstances, be a second referendum.

But Sir Keir said the Prime Minister's attempts to "threaten rather than persuade" would not work and Labour is prepared to reject the government's plans.

The critique from Johnson underscores the travails that May faces in getting any Brexit divorce deal, which London and Brussels say is 95% done, approved by her own fractious party.

Instead, Johnson said it would be proper to give the British public a chance to vote again because of the way the Brexit negotiations have evolved.

"If what is outlined in the reply is the type of deal the Prime Minister intends to conclude, then the DUP could not support a deal which annexes Northern Ireland from the rest of the United Kingdom", she wrote.

The wish to avoid at all costs Leo Varakdar, it is the restoration of a border lasts between Ireland and the british province of Northern Ireland, a province that could temporarily stay in the eu customs union. "The United Kingdom would be trapped".
