Scottish Tory MP Ross Thomson attacks May's Brexit plan

Justine Greening described Theresa May's plans the "worst of both worlds", and suggested a vote between three options: the Prime Minister's Chequers plan, remaining in the European Union, or a no-deal Brexit.

May has repeatedly ruled out a second referendum, after Britons voted by 52-48 per cent for Brexit in 2016, but Greening's support for a so-called People's Vote will give the campaign a huge boost.

Johnson, warned Monday that the Brexit "dream is dying" and Britain is "headed for the status of colony" with May's plan to stay close to the EU.

There will be a chance for them to take revenge in the Commons today when MPs pass their judgement on amendments to another crucial piece of Brexit legislation, the Trade Bill.

The cave-in to the Brexiteers was too much for the band of a dozen or so pro-Remain Conservative MPs who last December inflicted a Brexit defeat on the Government and now staged another damaging rebellion.

She must now try to ensure that the United Kingdom continues to participate in the regulatory network operated by the European Medicines Agency.

It would see Britain ask the European Union for a free trade area for goods through a "facilitated customs arrangement" alongside a "common rulebook".

His colleague, Labour's Paula Sherriff, said she had "important meetings" scheduled for next week and would vote against the move.

Michael Cohen trolls Trump over Russian Federation summit
Those are words I never thought I would write about an American president - even one as boorish and bigoted as Trump. Putin also denied the accusation that Trump colluded with Russian Federation in the presidential campaign of 2016.

May also came under fire Monday from a former Cabinet minister who called for a new Brexit referendum, an idea immediately rejected by the prime minister's team.

She has framed her plan as a compromise avoiding the need for a hard border in Ireland while maintaining "frictionless" European Union trade and allowing the United Kingdom to negotiate free trade deals.

The Commons voted by 307 to 301 against the amendment from pro-EU Tory rebels that would have wrecked the Prime Minister's Brexit strategy and plunged the government into chaos.

But neither move addresses the problem that the Chequers deal is opposed by both Leavers and Remainers now and looks doomed.

Despite the government's victory, Labour's Shadow International Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner said the knife-edge vote showed the Prime Minister was "in office, but not in power".

Also on Monday, Johnson used his return as a columnist for The Daily Telegraph on Monday to present his pro-Brexit vision, insisting that "the rest of the world believes in Britain".

The government was forced to abandon a plan to start parliament's summer recess five days early, after opponents criticised it as a ploy to avoid further rows, and members of her own party said they still had work to do.
