MPs show support for Jo Johnson after resignation

The UK economy grew 0.6 per cent in the three months to September

Starmer, who has called for a second referendum or people's vote, said MPs were not duty-bound to vote through a "bad deal" in parliament and must instead "take back control".

"Contrary to promises, there is in fact no deal at all on our future trading relationship with the European Union which the government can present to the country", he said.

However, Labour MP Wes Streeting called on the party to make the "full-throated case" for a people's vote. The better alternative, he believes, is to have another vote on whether the people want to actually leave now when they know the cost they will have to pay.

The Remain supporter argued it would leave the United Kingdom in a "vassal state relationship" to Brussels, while the no deal alternative would mean "chaos".

The critique from Johnson underscores the travails that May faces in getting any Brexit divorce deal, which London and Brussels say is 95% done, approved by her own fractious party.

She said: "Huge respect for Jo Johnson".

Despite their difference in stance, he said they were "united in dismay" at the "intellectually and politically indefensible" UK position.

He acknowledged that a no-deal Brexit could result in "Kent becoming the Lorry Park of England", with real questions about guaranteeing supplies of food and medicines.

Its growth rate has slipped from top of the G-7 rankings prior to the 2016 Brexit referendum to vying with the Italy and Japan at the bottom, with the International Monetary Fund predicting growth of just 1.4 percent this year and 1.5 percent in 2019.

Police say treating Melbourne stabbing as a terror attack
The full extent of the Bourke Street jihadi Hassan Khalif Shire Ali's botched attack in the heart of Melbourne has been revealed. Ashton didn't give the Somali attacker's name, but said the man had "family associations that are well known to us".

He said the plan is so different from what had been promised during the 2016 referendum that a second vote is needed.

Senior Conservative sources told i that Mr Johnson had not sought to speak to the Prime Minister about his intentions, nor had he written to her before announcing his resignation, breaking with usual convention.

Johnson, backed the Remain side during the referendum said it would be "a travesty" not to have a second referendum.

To add to the pressure, a leading member of a group of Brexiteer lawmakers in parliament joined with the Brexit spokesman for the small Northern Irish party that props up May's party in government to warn that they could not vote for the deal as it now stands.

Corbyn said any Brexit deal brought to the Commons by the government would need to be measured against Labour's six tests for a withdrawal agreement.

The UK offered the European Union a comprehensive temporary customs arrangement with many pro-Brexit ministers insisting London have control over the time frame of the agreement.

"I think we are at a sensitive point in the negotiations, a successful outcome is not guaranteed but I think it is possible in the next couple of weeks", Varadkar said on Friday (November 9).

But May has drawn the fury of her Northern Irish allies the Democratic Unionist Party.

On Friday the DUP, whose support Theresa May relies on for votes in the Commons, said they can not support any deal which included the possibility that Northern Ireland would be treated differently from the rest of the UK.
