The former Foreign Secretary says May is destroying Britain's "Brexit dream".

Aldridge-Brownhills MP Wendy Morton said: "The Prime Minister is showing the same level of resilience that she always does".

May is holding a meeting of her new-look cabinet on Tuesday, following a forced reshuffle in the aftermath of the resignations.

The trans-Atlantic relationship has had some awkward moments since Trump's election.

"This is not a betrayal", she responded to one of several eurosceptic Conservative MPs who complained, insisting it was "the right Brexit deal for Britain".

But...who knows?" Speaking to reporters earlier, Tusk said: "The mess caused by Brexit is the biggest problem in the history of the EU-UK relations and remains unsolved with or without Mr Davis: "Unfortunately, the idea of Brexit has not left together with David Davis".

May has faced a backlash over the plan from Brexit hardliners in her Conservative Party who say it gives too many concessions to the European Union, but she has support from moderates and there has been no challenge to her leadership.

"Top-level cabinet resignations usually spell trouble for a government and Boris Johnson's might well have led to a leadership challenge, but May appears to have emerged unscathed from a meeting of her party, for now", said Al Jazeera's Jonah Hill, reporting from London.

Merkel, a key voice in Brussels, said the other 27 European Union members would give a joint response, "but it's good that the proposals are on the table - that much I can say already, without going into details".

And the former adviser to Mr Davis, Stewart Jackson, claimed there was a "plan" to curtail the role of the Brexit department and that Downing Street had blocked his reappointment under new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a Facebook post."Here we go, even the King of the British political eccentricity did not want to stay in this holey dinghy".

If a further 47 Conservative MPs send in letters it will trigger a vote of confidence in the leader.

He said: "When it comes to a vote sometime around the end of this year, let us say that Theresa May has done a deal that bears some resemblance to what was put forward at Chequers with the EU".

He was widely reported to have told the Chequers meeting on Friday that putting a positive gloss on Mrs May's Brexit package would be like "polishing a turd", though he later joined other ministers in signing up to the package. Asked if he was planning to quit, environment Secretary Michael Gove said "absolutely not".

Brexiteer Walsall North MP Eddie Hughes is one of a number of Tory backbenchers to have voiced concerns over the detail of Mrs May's Brexit deal, with the full 120-page version not due to be released until Thursday.

Allies say his version was closer to the Canada-style free trade deal he has long championed, but also incorporated aspects of agreements the European Union has signed with other countries - such as mutual recognition of regulations in the auto sector. Davis and Johnson initially backed the plan, before deciding they could not support it.

This has angered some Conservative backbenchers, who say it will prevent the United Kingdom from having its own independent trade policy, and they want to see the Chequers blueprint rewritten.
