UK: May government in meltdown over Brexit

West Oxfordshire MP resigns from government over Brexit plan

Tory MP Gillian Keegan (Chichester) later drew upon the Rolling Stones over Brexit, telling the Commons: "I can't help think that if we'd been offered a deal a few years ago that ended free movement, stopped future payments to the European Union, continued frictionless trade, regained control over our fisheries and farming policies, with no hard border in Northern Ireland, we'd have readily agreed to this - in fact, we'd have bitten their hand off".

Shadow Scotland Secretary Lesley Laird said the fact that no Scottish Conservative MPs rebelled against the government meant "Ruth Davidson's pledge that her MPs would stand up for Scotland was nothing short of a lie".

But she added: 'The problem is I don't think she's in charge anymore.

The prime minister was saved from a humiliating reverse by the votes of four Labour Brexiteers - and one sitting as an independent - who backed the government in the crucial division.

Theresa May will meet farmers and business people along the frontier where she will hear concerns about Brexit and give her views on the way forward.

The amendment from former minister Stephen Hammond would have forced the United Kingdom to default to membership of the EU's customs union if it proved unable to negotiate a better agreement by January 21 of next year.

12 noon Prime Minister's Questions - These sessions are getting longer and longer.

The successful amendment requires Mrs May to make it an objective in negotiations with Brussels to ensure the United Kingdom can continue to participate in the regulatory network operated by the European Medicines Agency, which is being relocated from London to Amsterdam as a result of Brexit.

It was also Griezmann's corner which created the solitary goal in France's semifinal victory over Belgium. We have had the same success, but they were two great players.

He also explained why he rebelled again in last night's vote on membership of a customs union with the EU, a vote that the government had expected to lose but won narrowly.

The British government wants to retain the ability to sign trade deals independently of the EU.

The battle over the amendments to the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill, or customs bill, is unlikely to be the last that May and her team will have to face.

But the slim margins and rebellion from members of her own party have underscored the fragility of the prime minister's government as she tries to move the complex Brexit process forward. The founder of BeLeave, Darren Grimes, was fined 20,000 pounds and referred to the police, along with a Vote Leave official, David Halsall. "Even with a net vote in favour of a hike, we are likely to see a one and done", Neil Jones, head of FX hedge fund sales at Mizuho Bank said.

"On the other hand, if they remain as intransigent as they have been, then there is a likelihood we will finish up with no deal".

On Monday night, 14 Tories who want to stay close to the European Union voted against the government. "As the Prime Minister said, no deal is better than a bad deal".

"Vauxhall is an inner city constituency whose diverse, multi-cultural and multi-racial community have suffered eight years of Tory cuts and austerity, yet our MP is voting to prop up that Tory government and for a Tory Brexit which threatens job, peace in Northern Ireland and the future of the NHS".
