An all-party government would defeat the Tories, not join them

EU referendum bill debate

The Welsh MP who resigned from the UK Government over Brexit says Theresa May must "reassert" herself and "stand up to the bully-boy tactics" of Tory hardliners like Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Earlier this month, on the 9th, rumours spread that Mrs May was about to face a leadership challenge from pro-Brexit Tories as she met in private with the 1922 Committee.

After bowing to pro-Brexit lawmakers in her party on Monday, the prime minister may have opened the door to their growing calls for her to ditch the Chequers plan.

An attempt to secure a Parliamentary vote over new trade deals post-Brexit failed last night, after the government narrowly won a Commons vote to reject the amendment by 314 votes to 284.

Earlier this month two of May's top Cabinet ministers - Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson - quit over what they see as a watering-down of the UK's blueprint for leaving the European Union.

"The Chequers agreement, the white paper are the basis for our negotiation with the European Union and we have already started those negotiations", she told parliament.

The amendment would have required the government to try to negotiate a customs union arrangement with the EU if, by January 21, 2019, it had failed to negotiate a frictionless free trade deal with the bloc.

Mr Johnson praised the "great clarity" of Mrs May's speech at Lancaster House, where she said Britain would leave the customs union and single market but strike new trade deals with the EU and countries worldwide.

He was also the face of Vote Leave - the official pro-Brexit campaign group that was recently fined for breaking electoral law by overspending nearly US$600,000.

"If we get distracted by individual amendments to individual pieces of legislation. then I think we get dragged into an unnecessary debate that wastes a lot of time and energy", Foreign Minister Simon Coveney told Ireland's state broadcaster RTE. "We have to have a compromise position that enables the country to get an agreement with the European Union", trade minister Liam Fox told BBC radio.

When Johnson announced his intent to speak, some commentators wondered if his address might be something akin to the 1990 resignation speech by Geoffrey Howe that preceded the downfall of Margaret Thatcher as prime minister.

The government said being part of an EU customs union would prevent it from striking worldwide trade deals, won the vote by 307 to 301, a slim majority for May of just 6.

While the House of Commons debates these texts, the European Commission is analyzing the plan for future trade and customs relations it received from the United Kingdom government, the survival of which depends largely on the response from Brussels.
