Theresa May names Steve Barclay as new Brexit Secretary

Mrs May has faced a week of drama and pressure which saw the Tories fall in two opinion polls

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.

"There is no alternative plan on the table ..." But the compromise accord she presented to parliament on Thursday is unlikely to square this circle, says Helen Thompson, a professor of political economy at Cambridge University.

"The deal does not protect jobs or livelihoods of the people in the West Midlands". If she won, she could not be challenged for a year.

This is why the deal is nearly certain to fail in Parliament.

He added that the Government was looking at "all possible contingencies to ensure that in a no-deal scenario British businesses and livelihoods are safeguarded".

If May stayed on in power without a divorce deal that could be approved, the ultimate outcome of Brexit would be uncertain. Two Cabinet ministers and a handful of junior government members resigned, and grumbles about her leadership erupted into a roar.

Brexit's two biggest poster boys reportedly chatted for five minutes before going their separate ways.

"There are plenty of Conservative MPs who would not countenance us leaving without a deal and I think if it's necessary, we will work together to stop no deal happening", shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said. Reiterating the main points of the draft Brexit accord, she maintained that "the course I have set is the right one for our country".

Andrea Leadsom, the minister in charge of government business in parliament, has told the BBC that she was supporting May but was not fully happy with the deal.

"The whole cabinet has fully supported it [the deal]".

Ms. May has faced a barrage of criticism over the Brexit agreement, and few observers believe she has enough support to get it through Parliament in a crucial vote next month. She is appalled that it would leave Britain in a transitional customs union with the EU after its formal exit from the union next March.

Meanwhile, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will tell a forum in Dundee on Monday that Brexit in any form is likely to reduce economic growth.

"He will be doing the domestic role".

"Everybody has to accept not they are not going to get everything they want out of it".

Stephen Barclay has been appointed as the new Brexit Secretary, the third this year, but the role has been further downgraded as the Prime Minister will in future take sole control of negotiations on the European Union withdrawal.

Asked if he had confidence in Premier May, Gove said, "I absolutely do".

"I don't want that job!"

One diplomat said: "Fish is an issue but I guess it will be addressed in the political declaration". That is created to avoid a rupture in cross-border trade and a crash in business confidence, but it will prevent London from negotiating its own sovereign trade deals with the United States and other major economies. Parliament must approve the withdrawal agreement with the European Union, and a rebellion in May's own ranks now makes that hard, if not impossible, to achieve without votes from the opposition Labour Party.

Ms Vaz said: "The problems lie within the Tory Party who do not appear to have the best interests of the country at heart".

British politicians are "liars" who tricked people into voting for Brexit, France's finance minister has claimed.

Wendy Morton, Tory MP for Aldridge and Brownhills, has rallied behind the beleaguered PM, pledging her full support for her contentious Brexit deal.
