Theresa May defends Brexit deal as threats of leadership challenge mount

UK leader fights back against critics, defends Brexit deal

Labour has confirmed it will vote against the deal, while many Tories are set to revolt. Opposition parties and the government's partners in the DUP have said they will vote it down. That is uncertainty for people and their jobs. "We can't stop it because on our own, we don't have the votes". She's being held to ransom by extreme right wingers in the Conservative Party.

May's Conservatives don't t have a parliamentary majority, and it's not clear if her deal can successfully pass Parliament.

But the pair and three other cabinet Eurosceptics - Andrea Leadsom, Penny Mordaunt and Chris Grayling - were meeting over the weekend to try and force May to change her Brexit plans, the BBC and The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported.

Mr McFadden also insisted changing Prime Minister will not solve the "fundamental" problems with her Brexit deal.

"The government have to go back to the European Union and renegotiate rapidly", he said, adding that second Brexit referendum was "an option for the future" and "not an option for today".

Barclay replaced Dominic Raab who quit as Brexit minister on Thursday over the draft plan for leaving the EU. "If we change the person at the top, whoever is at the top we will still have the same problems".

Beleaguered British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is facing a potential no-confidence vote from opponents in her Conservative Party, said Sunday that a leadership change won't make the faltering Brexit talks any easier.

"The difficulty for me is that I was being asked to go over to Brussels and sign on the bottom line. on a deal which I said in good conscience I did not feel was right for the country", he said. She would remain prime minister until the contest was over unless she opted to resign and hand over to a caretaker prime minister. "It is the future relationship that delivers on the Brexit vote".

"I do think there is a point at which, we probably should have done it before, where we just say "I'm sorry this is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, we can not accept those dictated terms".

"The whole cabinet has fully supported it [the deal]".

Raab told the Sunday Times that the United Kingdom shouldn't allow itself to be "bullied", adding that the country must be prepared to walk away from negotiations.

Tory MP Zac Goldsmith, the party's London mayoral candidate in 2016, has sent a letter.

Mr Lefroy said: "I think it's ridiculous that people are doing that". You were never going to get that.

Government minister Margot James has blasted leading Brexiteers for attempting to topple Theresa May, labelling them as "beneath contempt" for trying to oust the PM.

Brexit poster-boy Mr Rees-Mogg made a public show of his decision to submit a letter calling for a confidence vote in the Prime Minister after she came under fire over her Brexit deal in the Commons.

"The negotiating teams are working as we speak and obviously which day I go back to Brussels will partly be about how those negotiations go. No deal would be catastrophic for the economy".

Amid domestic pressure, Mrs May told Sky News that she is anticipating a "critical week" in the negotiations, adding: "I will be going back to Brussels".

"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".
