Britain turns against Theresa May on Brexit, Sky Data poll finds

MPs prepare to move against May

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mr Johnson and Mr Davis had abandoned a "sinking ship", shattering the "illusion of unity" initially surrounding the Chequers plan.

Just 48 hours ago, the former Vote Leave leader's position was that while May's customs plan, which would keep us bound by European Union rules in perpetuity, was a "turd", he was still willing to sell it.

And for ERG members, the issue of securing what they regard as an acceptable Brexit is an issue that trumps everything else - even, if necessary, party loyalty.

Steve Baker, a junior Brexit minister, resigned along with Davis.

10 Downing Street confirmed Hunt's appointment on Twitter, after he was seen visiting the Prime Minister's official residence earlier in the evening.

May's personal authority was badly damaged after she called a snap election a year ago to strengthen her hand in Brexit talks but instead she lost her parliamentary majority, meaning she has to rely on a small Northern Irish party to govern.

David Davis and Steve Baker clearly realised that the promises they and their colleagues made about Brexit simply can not be delivered.

Both MPs pointed to the Northern Ireland backstop, which the government signed up to in December, as a key part of how the government had ended up with what they argued was an unacceptable compromise.

May's plan seeks to keep the United Kingdom and the European Union in a free-trade zone for goods, and commits Britain to maintaining the same rules as the bloc for goods and agricultural products.

United States job growth strong but unemployment rate rises to 4%
The U.S. and China slapped tit-for-tat duties on $34 billion worth of the other's imports on Friday. For the fourth consecutive month, Montreal had a lower unemployment rate than Toronto in June.

"We believe it is important to maintain more flexibility in how we're dealing with services", May told Parliament. They also lack the support in parliament to try to change any deal that is agreed with the EU.

"Never have so many campaigned for so long and so hard for so little", he told Reuters. "This has got to be killed and it's got to be killed before recess".

However, prominent Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg, the chairman of the European Research Group of Eurosceptic backbenchers, said he had not submitted a letter of no confidence.

But rumours swirled about a possible leadership challenge, amid reports that MPs were submitting letters to challenge May to the party's influential 1922 committee.

"In a vote of confidence in the House of Commons I would support the Prime Minister that's because I don't want to have another General Election, there isn't a vote of confidence in either case at the moment, I don't think many people want another election, we only had one a year ago". "They will not prepare for "no deal". The British government is due to publish a detailed version of the plans on Thursday.

As head of the Brexit ministry, Davis was the public face of Britain's negotiating team, but in reality had been overshadowed for months by May and her aides.

If Davis's resignation rattled May, Johnson's shook the foundations of her government.
