Brexit rebellion costs British PM May another minister

Brexit rebellion costs British PM May another minister

Labour backs the idea of a customs union with the EU after Brexit - but the government says this would mean the United Kingdom is unable to strike its own worldwide trade deals.

MPs will also go home as the new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab travels to Brussels to meet European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier for the first time since taking the role from David Davis, who resigned last week.

Last week, members of the hard Brexit group put down four amendments to the taxation (cross-border trade) bill due to be debated on Monday evening, aimed at halting the customs plan announced by May at Chequers nine days ago.

Despite her party being in turmoil, it is possible that Theresa May will be able to make it to the summer break unscathed.

Fresh from her pyrrhic victory yesterday, the Prime Minister is to go head-to-head with Remainers over another Brexit bill - this time on trade - and her decision to start MPs' summer holiday on Thursday this week, instead of Tuesday next week. The Labour leader looks certain to confront her over the turmoil in Tory ranks over her Brexit plans.

Britain's Prime Minister, Theresa May speaks at the Farnborough Airshow, in Farnborough, Britain July 16, 2018.

May's leadership has been precarious since she unveiled her proposed new Brexit negotiating strategy at her Chequers residence and detailed it in a white paper last week.

She said that would remove Britain's ability to have an independent trade policy and her government "will never stand for that".

She told MPs: "I would not have gone through all the work that I did to ensure that we reached that agreement only to see it changed in some way through these bills".

May said Monday that her plan honors the wishes of British voters - who in June 2016 backed Brexit in a 52 percent to 48 percent vote - while also protecting industry and security.

The skirmishes are expected to continue Tuesday when a trade bill is debated.

"Others saying perhaps we cannot have the bill at all". It had also won the backing of Labour and the SNP. "There is not going to be a second referendum ... under any circumstances", the spokesman told reporters.

Johnson, warned Monday that the Brexit "dream is dying" and Britain is "headed for the status of colony" with May's plan to stay close to the EU.

Pro-Europeans also dislike May's plan, particular her goal to have looser ties with the European Union for Britain's dominant services sector.
