United Kingdom has intense week of Brexit negotiations ahead: PM May

She added that the next seven days "are going to be critical" for successful Brexit talks, and that she will be travelling to Brussels to meet with EU leaders before an emergency European Council summit on November 25.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said his party would vote against May's deal when it came to parliament, but distanced himself from calls for a so-called people's vote on the final agreement.

By Sunday afternoon, a total of 25 MPs had revealed they had sent no-confidence letters to the chairman of the party's 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady.

Dominic Raab, who quit as Brexit secretary on Thursday over the draft deal, said it was "fatally flawed" but could be remedied by just "two or three points" being changed.

However, she said the focus of those talks would be the on the political declaration that outlines the future relationship, not the withdrawal agreement that includes the backstop.

According to advance extracts of her speech, May will say once again that the withdrawal agreement set out last week, which has been strongly criticised by MPs, is a good deal for Britain.

Former-Brexit Minister Dominic Raab, who resigned on Thursday in protest at the deal, suggested May failed to stand up to bullying from European Union officials. "The important thing is that we're here for our constituents and as prime minister I'm here for the people of this country".

Asked about the abuses hurled at her, she said: "It doesn't distract me".

That will then need to be ratified by parliament before it can proceed to a European Parliament vote and, if that's successful, an eventual EU Council approval process.

Going further, May suggested her Brexit deal will protect "millions of British jobs across the country", end sizeable annual payments to the EU budget, and make sure the European Court of Justice has no jurisdiction over the UK. The deal faces a great challenge within not only Britain but also the EU.

The backstop would also see additional regulator checks imposed on goods travelling between the rest of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.

Minister eurosceptic Andrea Leadsom has, unlike other members who share his options, and chose to stay to the sides of Theresa May... but it could, like them, she also slam the door shut.

The Foreign Minister said pro-Brexit British ministers are "not living in the real world" if they think they can renegotiate the divorce treaty agreed last week.

"I have heard it said that this is like a football match, in which we are one-nil down at half-time, but. we can still pull it back and get the Brexit we want", Johnson wrote in his weekly column for Monday's Daily Telegraph.

Mr Corbyn insisted Labour would be able to negotiate a better deal, even within the time remaining before Brexit, saying the proposed transition period - which will only happen if there is a withdrawal agreement - offered "some opportunities" for this.
