Brexit rebels tell Theresa May - Your EU divorce deal is dead

Blower cartoon

Ruth Davidson has described the council elections as a "plague on both your houses" as she urged MPs to agree on a Brexit vision in the run-up to the European ballot.

Key legislation to ratify the Prime Minister's Brexit deal in law will be brought before the Commons at the beginning of next month, Downing Street has announced.

He said: "I think if the House of Commons does not approve the WAB, then the Barnier deal is dead in that form and I think the House will have to then address a much more fundamental question between whether it will pursue. a no-deal option or whether it will revoke".

Brexit has been delayed until October 31 as MPs failed to reach an agreement on how best to exit the EU.

While European Union elections have always been seen as a safe place for mid-term protest votes to take place by the political establishment in the United Kingdom, polling showing that the month-old Brexit Party is now beating the Conservatives in even general election polling has sent shockwaves through Westminster.

Tories are anxious about The Brexit Party led by Nigel Farage, which is now polling way ahead of every other party in European election voting intentions.

Asked whether the vote would be considered a "confidence" vote for the Prime Minister, a source said: "That's not the world that we are now in, but clearly the significance of this piece of legislation can't and I suspect won't be underestimated".

She is due to meet senior Tory MPs on the backbench 1922 Committee's executive on Thursday for talks about her future.

It expressed concern that any promises made by May, for example to protect workers' rights in return for Labour backing the Brexit deal, would be ripped up by her successor.

Setting a date for the next parliament vote without an agreement with Labour is a gamble - if she loses, May can not hold another in the current parliamentary session.

The ongoing Brexit shambles has already brought about enormous damage, which would only be exacerbated if we actually leave the EU.

"When MPs come to look at that (bill), they will recognise that we have a duty in parliament to deliver on the result of the referendum and deliver Brexit", she said.

The talks with Labour would continue at an official level on Wednesday, the spokesman said.

Opposition among Conservatives and their Northern Irish allies, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), is focused on the Irish "backstop" plan.

The DUP's leader in the Commons, Nigel Dodds, said that without changes on this, his party could not support the Brexit bill next month.

However, she is under pressure from Brexiteers maneuvering against a compromise with Labour - with some Conservatives eyeing her position.

And Labour, the principal opposition party, while politically committed to leaving the European Union, also opposes the deal over issues of workers' rights and those of European Union nationals living in Britain and British nationals living within the EU.

After a marathon Cabinet meeting earlier on Tuesday, ministers agreed to continue the cross-party efforts to break the impasse but stressed it was "imperative" for a Brexit deal to get through Parliament by the summer recess.
