Brexiteers back UK-EU free trade plan

Brexiteers back UK-EU free trade plan

Monday's Cabinet meeting was told that in the post-Brexit immigration system, EEA and non-EEA nationals "should be part of one universal system".

"At the same time, the government will continue to sensibly plan for no deal", the statement quoted her as saying.

Two senior members of her political operation began "war gaming" an autumn vote in a bid to win public backing for a new Brexit plan.

Mr Rees-Mogg, whose former nanny now cares for his own six children, was speaking at the launch of a free trade blueprint by the Institute for Economic Affairs.

The final wording of the Brexit composite motion says: "If we can not get a general election, Labour must support all options remaining on the table, including campaigning for a public vote".

With a growing number of Tory MPs openly showing dissatisfaction with her policies, the ground is shaking under May, while the stalled talks have already caused the resignation of Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson during the summer.

While ex-Brexit Secretary Mr Davis, who quit in protest at the plan agreed by Cabinet at the PM's country retreat in July, said it was time to "reset" negotiations with Brussels. "We would expect European Union countries to reciprocate in turn", it said in the paper.

Of the social event at which Ford alleges his attack on her took place, Kavanaugh said: " I was never at any such party ". Trump, speaking in NY where he was attending the United Nations General Assembly, threw his full weight behind Kavanaugh.


However a spokesman for May ruled out moving towards a Canada-style deal, warning it would not prevent a hard border with the Republic of Ireland.

"From the Labour party's point of view they will oppose any deal I bring back regardless of how good it is for the UK, and they will accept any deal Europe gives, regardless of how bad it is for the UK", Mrs May said.

The Prime Minister insists her proposal, which would see Britain maintain a "common rulebook" with the European Union for trade in goods and agriculture, is the only credible option on the table which would avoid the return of a "hard border" between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

The Chequers plan has also faced criticism from both pro-Brexit and pro-EU politicians in Britain, and while Raab admitted it had shortcomings, he said it was the only way to deliver Brexit.

Downing Street said the pair discussed the future economic partnership and the Northern Ireland backstop.

"We want to maintain the unity of the United Kingdom".
