  • Theresa May Rejects Idea of Second Brexit Referendum

The move has fuelled accusations on social media from Labour MPs and journalists, amongst others, that the May government was "afraid of their own MPs" and 'seeking to function'.

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 Labour MP Stephen Kinnock accused the PM of "capitulating" and said the Chequers deal was now "dead in the water".

Plus Andrew Griffiths, a key ally and former chief of staff for Theresa May resigned this weekend over inappropriate sexual texts to constituents, making 10 government resignations in just 8 days.

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.

On Monday night Brexiteers narrowly defeated Tory rebels by just three votes on two amendments.

"[But] they are wondering if the prime minister - or anyone who could or might take over from her - would even have the political strength to get a deal agreed here in Brussels, then passed by parliament back home".

If Mrs May holds on as leader and manages to rally her troops behind the Brexit plan agreed by the Cabinet at Chequers, she still faces the tough challenge of winning the European Union over to her proposals.

Brexiteers had set up a WhatsApp group to co-ordinate voting tactics, organised by ex-Brexit minister Steve Baker, who quit over the Chequers plan.

Former global development secretary Priti Patel, who is proposing one of four amendments to the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill, told BBC Radio 4's Westminster Hour the white paper had "many flaws around our independence and our ability to make free trade agreements".

Tory MP and Remainer Heidi Allen said she wished the prime minister had "faced down the amendments".

"The Tory government is riding roughshod over the Scottish Parliament's voice on Brexit".

The ex-foreign secretary used a Daily Telegraph column to ominously say "I will resist - for now - the temptation to bang on about Brexit".

Meanwhile the Electoral Commission announced it was fining Vote Leave, the official pro-Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, for breaching spending limits and refusing to cooperate with its investigation.

She insisted it would allow Britain to control migration, end the jurisdiction of European Union courts and forge its own trade policy - despite US President Donald Trump saying it could "kill" a US-UK trade deal. I think it was a genuine clever attempt at a compromise that could work.

Mrs May faced a potential revolt on the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill, often referred to as the Customs Bill.

"Parliament is now stalemated on a way forward on Brexit, if it's the prime minister's deal it will be voted down, if it's a proposal for no deal that will be voted down, all parliament can do is block a route forward".
