British Prime Minister Theresa May: President Trump Suggested Suing the EU

British Prime Minister Theresa May: President Trump Suggested Suing the EU British Prime Minister Theresa May: President Trump Suggested Suing the EU

The original Chequers agreement caused the resignations of two key members of May's Cabinet: Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson.

She saw off defeat by just three votes on one proposal with Mr Bebb voting against the Government, effectively quitting his frontbench role.

As news broke that the Brexiteers' amendments had been accepted, there were angry exchanges between Conservative MPs as the Customs Bill was debated.

It gives the government the power to build new trade relationships around the world after the United Kingdom leaves the EU, and MPs who support staying in the EU's customs union are seeking to change its wording.

According to the Guardian, the government is rumored to be considering bringing forward parliament's summer recess, avoiding further divisive votes and giving Conservative MPs the chance to consider polls showing the opposition Labour Party pulling ahead.

MPs will carry on debating Brexit on Tuesday when the Trade Bill comes to the Commons.

May now faces rebellion from the pro-EU flank of her Conservative party, who are outraged by her caving in to these harder Brexiteer demands.

But the suggestion that MPs take extra time off during one of the most critical - and busiest - periods in recent parliamentary history has gone down badly even among members of her own party.

This all gets a bit too technical for the average voter, but in a nutshell May made a decision to adopt amendments on customs tariffs with the European Union - even though they seemed to flatly contradict her own Chequers compromise White Paper.

In his letter he wrote: "I fear elements of the Brexit white paper will inevitably put me in direct conflict with the views expressed by a large section of my constituents".

A government spokesperson said on Monday that May had agreed to accept all amendments, as the government believed they were "consistent" with the prime minister's Brexit plan, agreed at Chequers last week.

He said the government could "not please everybody" and there had to be compromises but Brexit had been backed by 17.4 million people in a referendum and legislation implementing that decision approved by MPs.

"It's also quite likely to be either rejected by the European Union or more demands will be made upon it so it will be even less acceptable".

Her gruelling schedule will begin with her last Prime Minister's Question Time clashes with Jeremy Corbyn until September.

Tory remainers Nicky Morgan and Stephen Hammond have tabled an amendment to the trade bill under which Britain would be forced to join a customs union with the EU if no agreement were reached on frictionless trade by 21 January 2019.

The former cabinet minister said he would "resist - for now - the temptation to bang on about Brexit" and did not discuss the circumstances or reasons for his resignation or relationship with May.
