May names Steve Barclay as new Brexit Secretary

I will see this through’ Theresa May comes out fighting after day of Tory rebellion

The government also announced replacements for two junior ministers who resigned over Mrs May's deal.

Esther McVey, the work and pensions minister, tendered her resignation shortly after Raab.

"A hard Brexit would be disastrous", Kempf said, adding that German firms should prepare for a no-deal exit of Britain from the EU.

He replaces Dominic Raab, who resigned on Thursday over Mrs May's withdrawal agreement for Brexit.

The 585-page document sets out the terms of the UK's departure and includes details such as how much money will be paid to the European Union, details of the transition period and citizens rights.

The premier remains defiant despite the prospect of a no-confidence vote after Jacob Rees-Mogg, a leading Tory Brexiteer, piled on the pressure by submitting a letter of no-confidence to the chair of the Conservative's influential 1922 Committee on Thursday.His decision is expected to have led to other Brexiteers to submit similar letters to Graham Brady, the Chair of the committee of backbench Tory MPs. If 48 letters are sent, then a vote will be triggered and Mrs May could face a challenge to her leadership.

"Of course it has been a tough week, actually these negotiations have been tough right from the start, but they were always going to get even more hard right toward the end when we are coming to that conclusion".

The prime minister noted that there is also "no different approach" that could be used in divorce talks with Brussels.

Raab insisted he still supports May and would back her in any potential leadership challenge against her.

Theresa May relies on the 10 Democratic Unionist Party MPs for her majority in the House of Commons.

South Staffordshire MP and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: "I'm very supportive of the Prime Minister".

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.

Those who voted remain in the European Union in the June 2016 Brexit referendum and those who voted leave the European Union are roughly united in their opinion of the deal with 42 percent of leave voters opposed, alongside 47 percent of remain voters.

Britain's Environment Secretary Michael Gove arrives at his office in Westminster, London, Friday, Nov. 16, 2018.

But when she asked who that could be, he said he had "no idea".

May replaced Raab and McVey on Friday with two lawmakers with track records of loyalty.

But May's Cabinet still contains tensions and potential fissures.

Prime Minister Theresa May is fighting to defend a draft deal agreed with the EU. She did not immediately address that part of the caller's question. It was not an easy ride. "I think she is taking us forward with confidence and - I have to say - with resilience".

May has apparently reached a crucial stage in which her leadership is being put to the test.

"I think it's absolutely vital that we focus on getting the right deal in the future", said Mr Gove.

"The withdrawal agreement we have been presented with is unacceptable to Leave and Remain voters alike". May because both are among the few cabinet ministers left who represent the hard-Brexit wing of the Conservative Party, which advocates cutting nearly all ties with the EU.

Supporters of Brexit say that while the divorce might bring some short-term instability, in the longer term it will allow the United Kingdom to thrive.

Ms Rudd's return to government comes less than seven months after she faced intense criticism over the UK's treatment of the Windrush generation. "If you start trying to amend it or unthink it, you might find that the whole thing unravels".
