UK Labour leader Corbyn blasts PM May over Brexit struggles

UK Labour leader Corbyn blasts PM May over Brexit struggles

The Chequers proposals, which have yet to be negotiated with the European Union, prompted the resignations of Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary, and David Davis, the Brexit secretary, who both said they could not support them.

Therefore, in the interests of our country and the future of the Conservative Party, I feel the time has come for a new leader and so I am writing this letter to inform you that I have no confidence in the Prime Minister.

This could mean Brexit being delayed, a change of government or a second referendum, he said.

Bridgen then called the prime minister's promises regarding Brexit negotiations a "pretence and a charade".

"What's most important now is that we do not lose momentum behind the housing policies born out of the Housing White Paper, which supported housing of all tenures including build-to-rent".

"There is absolutely no appetite for a leadership battle".

Unnamed Brexiteers were quoted in the press as saying the PM should brace herself for "guerrilla war" to kill off her deal, with Eurosceptic Tories withholding their support in the Commons.

"With our leave date fast approaching we have no time for the mechanisms of a leadership challenge", he said. It's a good thing that we have proposals on the table. "I don't want to be cavalier about that". On the question of what kind of Brexit deal might win the approval of parliament, he was pessimistic. We are going in 2019, we either go with a deal or without a deal, but what is beyond dispute is we go. He stood down from the council in 2006 and in May 2008 he was elected to the London Assembly for the seat of West Central, at which point mayor of London Boris Johnson made him deputy mayor for Policing.

"He added life and colour".

"My concern is about the policy, rather than the individual", he said.

Mr Johnson resigned on Monday as the fallout from May's Brexit plans continued.

May must now quickly seek European Union support for her proposal.

"The deal could be a grand compromise that restores the independence of the United Kingdom while boosting our domestic economy".

The move could potentially wipe out May's parliamentary majority when the Bill goes before MPs on Monday in the first eye-catching course of action instigated by hardline Brexiteers post-Chequers.

"In his resignation letter, Davis said the "'common rule book policy hands control of large swathes of our economy to the European Union and is certainly not returning control of our laws in any real sense".

"Michel Barnier and his taskforce can not negotiate an outcome that compromises the integrity of the single market for everybody else".

Theresa May defended her plans as she arrived at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, saying it had been agreed by the government and "delivers on the vote that people gave on Brexit".

Trump said it was up to the British people to decide if Mrs May remained in power while speaking to reporters at the House House before boarding Air Force One.

She said: "He talks about resignations, can I just remind him, I think he's had 103 resignations from his frontbench, so I'll take no lectures from him".

Mr Raab, now a housing minister, was a prominent Leave campaigner during the 2016 referendum.

The ex-MP said there was a "plan" to curtail the role of the Brexit department.

"Now there is chaos", it said in its editorial.

He said this was "possibly because they are re-polishing part of it - which may well be a good sign".
