Theresa May's new-look cabinet meets amid Brexit turmoil

While British Prime Minister Theresa May might have hoped her meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump Friday could draw a line under the spate of resignations she suffered early in the week, it is likely to only further expose her weakness and divided leadership.

International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said the Chequers agreement was created to be a "credible offer" to Brussels to allow negotiations to make progress.

Jeremy Hunt, appointed foreign secretary as May carried out a hurried reshuffle of her top team, vowed that he would be "four square" behind her in driving through her Brexit plan.

Gove told British television station ITV he was "absolutely not" planning to resign.

Asked whether Mrs May was in trouble following the rash of departures from her Government on Monday, the Environment Secretary replied: "No".

"I believe this will help the Government stick to the promises it made".

Mrs May is in Brussels for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting which is also being attended by United States president Donald Trump, who described the UK as being in "turmoil" after the resignations of Boris Johnson and Mr Davis from Cabinet. "And sending our best wishes to @England for tomorrow!"

Lord Hague said the proposals agreed at Chequers were "the most that can be achieved within the inevitable and inescapable constraints".

"We need to see whether the taskforce can accommodate some of the British thinking", he said. 'There is a whole range of scenarios in which they get no Brexit, or an indefinitely delayed Brexit, or a change of government or a second referendum, ' he told Radio 4's Today programme.

Reports suggested the Prime Minister would face a vote of no confidence in her leadership.

But prominent Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg described it as a "breakdown in trust" and said Mrs May must now U-turn or be forced to rely on Labour votes to get her legislation through Parliament.

Mr Buckland added that there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately".

"This policy will be bad for our country and bad for the party", said the Lewes MP.

"Because I've already cleared the existing text with Mrs Merkel". "You know, Boris Johnson has been a friend of the president, was a friend during the election of the president, so I think he has a warm and close relationship with him".

But his claims were dismissed by former defence secretary Sir Michael Fallon, who said: "Dreaming is good, probably for all of us, but we have to deal with the real world".

Speaking at the Institute of worldwide and European Affairs in Dublin, Minister Coveney said there had not been a clear British negotiating position for many months.

Unhappily for May, his most effusive praise was reserved for the outgoing foreign secretary.

The Daily Telegraph said on Tuesday night that senior Brexiteers said that they have enough letters in hand to trigger a confidence vote and will submit them unless she hardens her Brexit plans.

"It is the right Brexit deal for the people".

"Actually despite all of the political movement and challenges in Westminster, I think this has been a good week for Brexit", Mr Coveney said.

May will seek to put the diplomatic tensions behind her when she hosts Trump on Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of World War II prime minister Winston Churchill.
