Theresa May has attempted to quell a mounting Tory rebellion over Brexit by unveiling a new four-point plan to break the deadlock with Brussels.

Theresa May could be SACKED in 48 hours – and THIS is who could replace her

For this to happen, 48 Conservative MPs must submit letters to the Party’s chairman.

And it could happen sooner rather than later amid reports that 46 have already been submitted.

IT’S WAR: Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg move to bring down Theresa May over Brexit

(28.9.2018) Boris quit the cabinet back in July in protest at the Chequers plan, and has been a thorn in the side of the PM ever since – despite battles in his personal life.

Ungewollte Bürgernähe: Unsichere Konferenz-App verrät Tory-Telefonnummern

Eine gravierende Sicherheitslücke in der offiziellen Smartphone-App zum Parteitag der britischen Konservativen Partei (Tories genannt) hat persönliche Daten hunderter Teilnehmer der Veranstaltung offen zugänglich gemacht, darunter deren Mobiltelefonnummern.

Jeremy Corbyn must resist the calls to back a second EU referendum

The concerted effort to bounce the Labour Party into supporting a second referendum must be defeated; it is an affront to the millions who voted to Leave the EU and even greater number who want the Government and Parliament to get on with it. A second referendum by any name is a device to renege on the 2016 referendum result.

It would be the height of hypocrisy to claim to respect the Brexit vote yet make plans to reverse it. Having a second referendum if the first goes ‘the wrong way’ is the practice of the EU and one of the reasons why many people wanted out of that undemocratic institution.

BREXIT SHOCK: Yanis Varoufakis reveals EXACTLY what the EU will do next to STOP us leaving

Mr Varoufakis BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House that the “only solution” for Prime Minister Theresa May’s “abysmal” negotiating position would be a general election in Britain, which could result in the EU forcing the country into a Norway-style Brexit deal.

He added: “Mrs May is then allowed to go away in peace and to have a new government that negotiates a Norway-style agreement for Britain for a five-year period at least so that Mrs Merkel and Mr Macron can say ‘ok, well this is a problem for our successors’.”

Jeremy Corbyn faces losing 19 MPs if Labour tries to block Brexit – shock poll claims

Research showed that any attempt by Jeremy Corbyn’s MPs at Westminster to frustrate the departure from the EU would lead to Labour candidates facing defeat in 19 of its 25 most marginal constituencies held by the party.

The survey, carried out by the polling firm IQR for the Brexit-supporting pressure group Global Britain comes on the eve of the start of the Labour conference in Liverpool, where delegates are expected to vote on calls for the party to back a second EU referendum.

Brexit HQ? Rees-Mogg moves into HUGE mansion as he edges closer to Downing Street

(24.8.2018) Mr Rees-Mogg will use the residence to plot his latest Commons revolt as he sets out his own vision for a bright future outside of the European Union.

A faction of Brexiteer rebels, spearheaded by the eccentric MP, is working to create an “alternative view” to the Government’s Chequers plan, which was rubbished both by Westminster and the EU.

Phew! May SCRAPES Brexit victory by THREE VOTES as No10 plot to avoid LEADERSHIP COUP

Mrs May caved in to the demands from Brexiteer Tory rebels following a string of frontbench resignations and a threatened rebellion by up to 80 MPs over her Customs Bill. She insisted the amendments did not „change“ her plan.

And tonight she avoided a humiliating defeat in the House of Commons by just three votes, just minutes after it was revealed the Government is set to table a motion to bring forward the Parliament’s summer recess in an apparent bid to stave off a leadership coup.

Our snap survey. Three in five Party members believe May’s new Brexit plan represents a bad deal for Britain.

After all, one might think it would be a bad deal for Britain, if implemented, but still back it, perhaps out of Party loyalty. (We’re not expressing a view on such a stance; merely pointing out that it’s possible.)

But at any rate, there’s next to no difference between the two findings. Three in five panel members think the plan would represent a bad deal for Britain if implemented, and the same proportion don’t support it.

Oust me if you dare, Theresa May warns ‘Brexit bullies’

(1.7.2018) That means the rebels would need 159 MPs to bring her down, more than three times the 48 who would be needed to trigger a vote of no confidence.

May’s decision comes as she faces crunch Brexit talks with the cabinet at Chequers this week and MPs revealed that six senior ministers are plotting to succeed her.
