United Kingdom business group warns patience running out on Brexit

United Kingdom business group warns patience running out on Brexit

Former justice minister Phillip Lee, who resigned from the Government over Brexit, said there was "no doubt" that Eurosceptics were mobilising and called on colleagues to "stand against this nonsense".

Mrs May will bring together her Cabinet at her country residence to thrash out details of a white paper setting out the UK's plans for areas such as trade. "It will of course in a no-deal situation be up to the United Kingdom to determine what it does in relation to the border in Northern Ireland".

Mr Johnson's intervention on Twitter on Monday also appears to put him at odds with a minister in his own department, with Sir Alan Duncan earlier accusing Mr Rees-Mogg of "insolence". Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) said in May that the customs cost of Brexit would be £20 billion, more than 1% of gross domestic product (GDP), and warned time was running out to deliver the system by Brexit at the end of March 2019.

In a podcast for the ConservativeHome website, he said there had been a "breakdown in collective responsibility" in the Cabinet, with pro-EU ministers openly promoting solutions "against the Prime Minister's speeches, against the position formally of the Cabinet and against the manifesto".

"Get behind the Prime Minister and deliver what the British people wanted which is coming out of the European Union".

He insisted he was not "personally ambitious" and was not aware of a £750,000 war chest reportedly raised by supporters for an eventual leadership bid.

"The solicitor general has confirmed that to exit with no deal and trade under WTO rules would necessitate such a border".

Cabinet tensions are high ahead of the Chequers meeting to thrash out the Government's position on the future relationship between the United Kingdom and European Union, with the potential for Brexiteer ministers such as Mr Johnson to quit unless they get their way.

Oil seesaws in nervous trading as US implements tariffs on Chinese goods
As part of a wave of retaliation for Friday's U.S. tariffs, China has threatened a 25 percent duty on imports of USA crude. USA crude futures fell on Thursday as official data showed the country's oil inventories rose unexpectedly last week.

The comments will be seen as a rebuke to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who reportedly said "f*** business" when asked about Brexit fears.

However, the signs that the government is starting from scratch - almost one year after customs plans were first published and just four days before the Chequers showdown - "are certain to add to criticism of Brexit chaos" says The Independent.

Cabinet tensions are high ahead of the Chequers gathering, with the potential for Brexiteer ministers such as Mr Johnson to quit unless they get their way.

Red ratings were given to issues including customs, tariffs, VAT, aviation and the Irish border.

Chancellor Philip Hammond said the Government will listen to business concerns about Brexit as Tory infighting continued ahead of the crunch Cabinet showdown at Chequers.

Any lack of clarity would add to the frustration of European Union leaders who increased pressure on Mrs May on Tuesday.

He said: "Clause 10 of the EU Withdrawal Act very clearly makes it unlawful for ministers to do anything which would lead to any form of physical customs border on the island of Ireland". She adds, it's time for the United Kingdom government to cut down its ambitions to a vanilla-free trade agreement with the European Union on goods, and something for services, that would be the most practical way forward.
