Theresa May names Steve Barclay as new Brexit Secretary

Jacob Rees-Mogg, the influential leader of a group of 60 rank-and-file pro-Brexit Tories announced on Thursday he had sent a formal letter demanding a vote of no confidence in May's leadership, with other lawmakers following suit.

There were also continuing reports of a plan by senior Cabinet ministers who remain in Government to try to alter the withdrawal agreement at the 11th hour.

"I have worked very closely with her on Brexit and I think there is still the opportunity to get this right, support the Prime Minister - but she must also listen and change course on Brexit".

She added that the next seven days "are going to be critical" for successful Brexit talks, and that she will be travelling to Brussels to meet with EU leaders before an emergency European Council summit on November 25.

"We've been married for 38 years, that's a long time".

Amid domestic pressure, Mrs May told Sky News that she is anticipating a "critical week" in the negotiations, adding: "I will be going back to Brussels".

"The job of prime minister is to make tough decisions which are not always black or white".

Brexit-Minister Dominic Raab, labour Minister Esther McVey as well as the Northern Ireland Secretary of state, Shailesh Vara resigned because they refused to accept the agreement.

"If you don't think the deal meets those tests, you have to vote it down".

Barclay campaigned in favor of Brexit ahead of the 2016 referendum.

More than two years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, it is still unclear how, on what terms or even if the world's fifth largest economy will leave the bloc as planned on March 29, 2019.

But the DUP has rejected the deal, saying its provisions to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland would impose new barriers between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK, weakening the bonds that hold the United Kingdom together.

Meanwhile, speaking on the same programme, British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said his party can not support the draft withdrawal agreement. The risk of no deal is already causing economic harm as companies of all sizes stockpile goods and components and move jobs and investment out of Britain, it said.

She told the newspaper, "People say "If you could only just do something slightly different, have a Norway model or a Canada model, this backstop issue would go away".

Raab said that while the agreement was "fatally flawed", it's not too late to change that.

"We won't agree the leaving part. until we've got what we want in the future relationship, because these two go together". According to his results, 51.9% of Britons voted for the country's withdrawal from the community of 48.1% - wanted to remain in the EU.

When the document is finally published on Tuesday there will be no "shocks or surprises" for anxious Brexiteers who are demanding more negotiations, the source said.

Theresa May has received a boost in her hopes of seeing off a no-confidence vote in the first survey of grassroots members since last week's Cabinet revolt.
