  • Pressure over Brexit vote may force Theresa May to step down

The Daily Mail, which has been supportive of May, said that "despite her valiant efforts to deliver an honorable Brexit, she has finally run out of road".

The Downing Street spokesman added that the Prime Minister "will have further discussions with ministers later today" about the WAB, signalling that she intends to continue despite the enormous pressure for her to quit.

May previously said she planned to publish the withdrawal bill Friday and hold a vote in Parliament the week of June 3.

But that deadline appears to have been brought forward with the announcement she will meet Sir Graham the day after the European Union vote in which the Tories are widely expected to be hammered by Nigel Farage's Brexit Party.

A 1922 Committee source told the Press Association they expected June 10 to be the day Mrs May chooses.

May's resignation will trigger a race among senior ministers to replace her as leader of the Conservative Party, and herald a new approach to the deadlocked Brexit negotiations that have besieged her premiership, local media said.

"My feeling is that she will stay until June 10".

The source said a new leader would ideally be in place by the end of the summer to get a Brexit deal through Parliament before October 31, the date now set for the UK's exit from the European Union.

The respected Leader of the House Andrea Leadsom resigned last night over PM May's latest Brexit bill, sparking fears of further resignations that would leave PM May totally isolated.

May's departure will deepen the Brexit crisis as a new leader is likely to want a more decisive split, raising the chances of a confrontation with the European Union and an election that could usher in a socialist government.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is understood to have told the Prime Minister to ditch the WAB completely, saying it was clear it would not pass.

Britain's crisis over Brexit has stunned allies and foes alike, and with the deadlock in London, the world's fifth largest economy faces an array of options including an exit with a deal to smooth the transition, a no-deal exit, an election or a second referendum.

He was understood to be pleased with the delay to the publication of the WAB and neither minister is expected to follow Mrs Leadsom out of the Cabinet.

She wrote on the social media platform: "It is with great regret and a heavy heart that I have chose to resign from the Government".

If May does resign in the coming days, she would remain as prime minister while a leadership contest takes place over a period of up to six weeks.

The WAB had been due to be published on Friday but that has been delayed in a sign of the chaos at the top of the Government.

The move came after a meeting with the chairman of the influential 1922 Committee of her Conservative party backbenchers.

After a crisis-riven premiership of nearly three years, May is due to meet the chairman of the powerful Conservative 1922 Committee, which can make or break prime ministers, to set out a timetable for her departure.

May was always likely to be a tricky month for the prime minister.
