Theresa May: Leadership challenge will hamper Brexit negotiations

Theresa May: Leadership challenge will hamper Brexit negotiations

"In its current form, the deal's not good enough", ABE co-founder Tom Bohills told City A.M.

"It is a far more sensible approach to support what is being negotiated over the last two years as a way that we know provides the guarantees that we have looked for and insisted on that there will be no physical border or infrastructure or checks or controls and that is an issue that goes beyond commerce and trade".

The prime minister also may key replacements which would stabilise her position, handing the role of work and pensions secretary to ally and remain voter Amber Rudd, who went full-force on the defensive for May, telling the BBC that any MPs thinking of submitting letters of no confidence should "think again".

"These negotiations have been tough right from the start, but they were always going to get more hard towards the end", May told Sky News on Sunday.

Theresa May has faced heavy criticism from all parties after publishing the draft Withdrawal Agreement.

"I think there's still the potential to improve on the clarification and on some of the measures within it and that's what I'm hoping to be able to help with", she said.

The draft withdrawal agreement has prompted widespread criticism and fear that the United Kingdom's economy will sustain serious damage if a better deal for its exit from the European Union can not be reached. "Politics is a tough business and I've been in it for a long time".

Conservative party rules state that if 15 per cent of its members of parliament submit letters to chairman of their backbench 1922 Committee, now Sir Graham Brady, then a vote of no confidence will take place in the leadership.

"I always say he is my rock".

But instead, they have remained in the Cabinet - for now - to try and secure the changes they want to the Brexit strategy from within the government.

"This idea that now after two years of negotiation, somehow four or five cabinet ministers can negotiate a different outcome and agree it themselves, and then expect the European Union to just sign up to that, I just think it's not living in the real world", Coveney told a podcast recorded by the Irish Times at his Fine Gael party's annual conference.

This includes the United Kingdom retaining control of its laws and immigration, leaving the Single Market through a free trade agreement and exiting the Customs Union.

Dominic Raab, who quit Thursday as Brexit secretary, said "there is one thing missing and that is political will and resolve".

The deal itself provoked strong opinions with only 4 per cent saying they neither support nor oppose the deal.

The majority (58 per cent) thought that a future leader should have supported Leave at the referendum, however, with only 14 per cent disagreeing.

The emergency summit will kick-start the national ratification process in some EU countries as well as in Westminster, setting in train a process that will culminate with a vote in the European Parliament in February and finally Brexit Day on March 29 2019.

"We do not believe it serves the interests of the country therefore the government would have to go back to the European Union and renegotiate".
