'Brexit continues to mean Brexit': May presses on with her plan

Mr Johnson used his resignation statement in the Commons to call for the PM to abandon her "miserable" version of Brexit, Mrs May's former joint chief of staff Nick Timothy said the current situation was "deeply depressing".

He was also the face of Vote Leave - the official pro-Brexit campaign group that was recently fined for breaking electoral law by overspending nearly US$600,000.

Mrs May was criticised by her own side at Prime Minister's Questions, with Brexiteer backbencher Andrea Jenkyns asking pointedly "at what point it was decided that Brexit means Remain".

In a devastating assault, Mr Johnson accused the PM of misleading voters about her intentions and putting the United Kingdom "in limbo" with the Chequers plan she forced through Cabinet.

"It is not too late to save Brexit", Johnson said in his speech.

"We have time in these negotiations".

Twelve Tory "remainer" MPs rebelled against the party whip and backed the amendment while four Labour Brexit-supporting MPs rebelled against their party whip and backed the government.

"At absolutely no point because BREXIT continues to mean BREXIT", Mrs.

Within three days of that party retreat, Johnson and the minister responsible for Brexit negotiations with the EU, David Davis, resigned from their cabinet posts.

Reacting to the defeat of New Clause 18, Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade Barry Gardiner commented: "The government's handling of Brexit over the past week has been an utter shambles".

"We dithered and we burned through our negotiating capital", he said, noting the agreement to pay billions of pounds to settle Britain's financial commitments before any deal on future trade.

Speaker of the Commons John Bercow said parliament would now be in session next Monday and Tuesday.

On Tuesday, it was the turn of the softer, pro-European conservatives in her ranks who put her to the test, as she narrowly averted defeat in a parliamentary vote that signaled the potential for months of gridlock over the country's tortured efforts to extract itself from the bloc. "God knows, the threat of a Corbyn government is real", Clarke said.

Mr Corbyn replied: "Is she seriously expecting 27 member states of the European Union are going to establish their own bureaucratic tariff collection infrastructure just to satisfy the war within the Conservative Party in Britain?"

But this is set to change because of Brexit, and the agency is moving to a new headquarters in Amsterdam following a pan-European competition and voting process late a year ago.

The dispute has exposed the deep divisions in May's party and could yet lead to significant challenges to her authority.

In his letter, Mr Davies continued: "Failure to keep our promise to the electorate will nearly certainly lead to the catastrophe of Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister and I can not sit back and allow that to happen".
