Brexit news- Theresa May and David Davis

Boris Johnson has launched a scathing attack on Theresa May's Brexit strategy, saying the "dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt". May's plan. "We will protect [the EU's] single market, which is based on the indivisibility of what we call the four freedoms - of people, goods, services and capital", Mr. Barnier told a conference in NY on Tuesday.

What has been outlined so far has sparked a backlash from Brexiteers and prompted the resignations of David Davis and Boris Johnson. The tousle-headed blond Johnson is one of Britain's best-known politicians, and one of the most prominent advocates for Brexit. "If there's one thing that binds Conservative MPs together, it is a fear of [Labour Leader] Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister", Mr. Travers said.

"Mrs May was very clear in her manifesto what was going to happen; that we were leaving the single market, we were leaving the customs union and we'd be an independent country - and what came out of Chequers is unacceptable".

"The government now has a song to sing", he said. This policy will be bad for our country and bad for the party.

The slew of resignations could possibly point to members of Parliament demanding a vote of no confidence in May, even though her team is confident that their Brexit plan would pass if it gets put to a vote.

May's leadership, is seen as a potential challenger.

"My concern is about the policy rather than the individual", he said. Pro-Europeans want to retain close economic ties with the bloc and its market of 500 million people, while some, but not all, Brexit supporters want a clean break to make it possible to strike new trade deals around the world.

Labour chairwoman of the Home Affairs Committee, Yvette Cooper, said the government's Chequers agreement "as it stands" would not be approved by Parliament partly, she argued, because it does not include a customs union.

Government unity began to fray within hours.

On Thursday, Trump will travel to Blenheim Palace, the 18th-century stately home where Britain's World War Two leader Winston Churchill was born and spent most of his childhood.

"Being tied to European Union regulations and the European Union tying our hands when seeking to make new trade agreements will be the worst of all worlds", wrote the Mansfield MP, who voted remain in a constituency where more than 70 per cent of voters opted to leave.

Brexit betrayed or the end of May: What does David Davis's resignation mean?

It comes just days after the president declined to say whether Mrs May should remain in post, said he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over the Chequers agreement, and described the United Kingdom as being in "turmoil".

Tory Eurosceptics have hit back at Theresa May by tabling amendments to a key Brexit Bill which could kill off her Chequers plan for future relations with the EU.

Under the plans, Britain would stick to a "common rulebook" with the European Union for goods and agricultural products in return for free trade, without tariffs or border customs checks. Working out how to keep the now invisible border free of tariffs and customs checks has been a major stumbling block in negotiations.

Asked what he would do if the Brexit plan ended up limiting Britain's ability to conduct trade deals with non-EU countries, Fox said: "I don't believe it does".
