Rees-Mogg launches bid to put brakes on May’s Chequers Brexit plans

This is so much bigger than Boris

"It is with regret that I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign as a Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party following the collective agreement by Cabinet on the Chequers Brexit deal", Maria Caufield said in her letter of resignation to Prime Minister Theresa May.

Former Tory leader William Hague warned MPs could lose out on Brexit if they did not back the PM.

Hunt, who served as the health secretary, was assigned to his new role late on Monday hours after Johnson handed in his resignation letter to May.

Tuesday started as a "business as usual" for May as she chaired the first meeting of her new look cabinet following her reshuffle prompted by the resignations. And I maybe well speak to him when I get over there.

Leading Brexiteer Michael Gove left no doubt that he would not follow Boris Johnson and David Davis out of the Cabinet, declaring that he backed the Prime Minister's plans "100%".

They will demand the government scrap its offer to collect tariffs on behalf of the European Union when the Customs Bill returns for debate - a crucial element of the prime minister's plan for a "facilitated customs arrangement". Speaking as he signed a joint EU-NATO declaration with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Tusk was apparently alluding to Trump's upcoming meeting with Vladimir Putin when he said "it is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem".

"Dreaming is good, probably for all of us, but we have to deal with the real world", he said.

"We need to see whether the taskforce can accommodate some of the British thinking", he said.

Solicitor General Robert Buckland said: "She talked about Corbyn, she talked about the alternative which is delivering the country to the sort of government that I don't think people have voted for and certainly any Conservative voter would be repelled by".

Ministers also stepped up preparations for a "no deal" on Brexit as Brussels will be reluctant to consider any plan which would risk splitting the single market.

Two years after Britain voted 52 per cent to 48 per cent to leave the European Union, May is trying to find a middle way between two starkly differing views - within her party and the country - of the UK's relationship with Europe.

British newspaper The Guardian reports the Ambassador's comments when he said: "We'll make everything possible if the president wants to do something..."

But in the Chequers agreement, there are plans for a "combined customs territory" where the United Kingdom would charge European Union tariffs for goods which will end up heading into the EU.

But many pro-Brexit lawmakers are furious at a plan they say will stop Britain forging an independent economic course.

"We deliver that Brexit and we do it in a way that protects jobs and livelihoods and meets our commitment to Northern Ireland", she said.

Mr Johnson resigned on Monday as the fallout from May's Brexit plans continued. The British government is due to publish a detailed version of the plans on Thursday.
