May takes swipe at Tory critics ahead of 'critical' week for Brexit

May takes swipe at Tory critics ahead of 'critical' week for Brexit

It also found a second referendum would be a close call, with Remain beating Leave by 45pc to 43pc, with 10pc of respondents saying they had "had enough of Brexit and wouldn't vote".

Dominic Raab, the former Brexit Secretary whose resignation last week triggered the current crisis, said he was opposed to any attempt to oust the Prime Minister.

Stephen Gethins SNP MP and spokesman on Europe, told the Sunday National: "With all wings of her party against her, it is abundantly clear that Theresa May has no chance of getting her deal through Parliament - leaving us all in political purgatory".

Despite losing a number of high-profile ministers yesterday, it looks like the British Prime Minister has avoided more resignations from her top team, for now. She did not immediately address that part of the caller's question.

The Labour leader had previously said in an interview with Der Spiegel earlier in the month that one referendum had already taken place, Article 50 - the process of withdrawing from the European Union - had been triggered, and that Brexit could not be stopped.

Gove, 51, gave no comment when asked outside his house whether he would support May.

Meanwhile, Leadsom has said there is still time for "more to be done" on the Brexit deal.

Sterling, which has see-sawed on Brexit news since the referendum, was flat at $1.2783 on Friday, down nearly three cents since a deal was struck on Tuesday. Many fear it will divide the West as it grapples with both the unconventional USA presidency of Donald Trump and growing assertiveness from Russian Federation and China.

Raab's comments come as speculation swirls around the future of the so-called Brexit and the possibility of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a pre-planned deal.

After a tumultuous week in which the draft divorce deal agreed between London and the European Union was slammed in parliament and plotters circled, May said the proposed withdrawal accord would only be signed off if the future relationship deal was satisfactory. They are also concerned this will make it harder to strike new trade deals with other major economies such as the United States.

He said in his letter that "it would be in the best interest of the Party and the country if she were to stand aside".

The committee has the power to trigger a no confidence vote in the party leader once it receives such letters from 15% of MPs - a total of 48.

Mr Brady said that if the 48-letter threshold was reached, he would "inform and consult the leader of party" and "organise a ballot as soon as is reasonably practical".

She urged MPs to "listen to business" when they consider how they cast their ballots in the crucial Brexit vote next month.

Steve Baker, who resigned from government over Brexit in the summer, said he submitted his letter on October 22.

May said negotiations were continuing and she meant to go to Brussels and meet European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

The EU and Britain need an agreement to keep trade flowing between the world's biggest trading bloc and the United Kingdom, home to the biggest worldwide financial center.

May said she was headed to Brussels for talks with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker before EU leaders gather on November 25 to finalize the draft Brexit agreement.

British aero-engine maker Rolls-Royce said it was continuing with its contingency plans.

She told the newspaper: "People say "if you could only just do something slightly different, have a Norway model or a Canada model, this backstop issue would go away".

However the role has been downgraded from that of chief Brexit negotiator, as has been the case until now.
