Brexit crisis - what's next for Theresa May?

The resignation of her foreign and Brexit ministers follows last Friday's closed door retreat at Chequers, the prime minister's country residence, where she chose in favor of a deal that keeps trade flowing with the continent and the border open with Ireland.

Leaving the gathering, leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg said he did not think there would be a confidence vote over Mrs May.

On Monday, the Conservative MP became the third minister to resign from the Cabinet in recent days over Britain's plan for exiting the European Union, throwing British politics into chaos and raising the spectre of a potential Conservative leadership challenge or general election.

In a boost for Mrs May, it emerged last night that the chair of the powerful Tory 1922 committee has yet to receive the 48 letters from MPs needed to trigger a no-confidence vote.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mrs May should make way for a Labour administration if her Government can not get its act together quickly.

David Davis and Steve Baker clearly realised that the promises they and their colleagues made about Brexit simply can not be delivered.

Just over one in five - 22% - think the likeliest outcome is that Britain remains in the European Union, while 7% say they don't know. If you think that No 10 are going to capitulate to what we think is reasonable, we are wrong.

Late Anthony Bourdain's wealth was worth $1.21 million?
The court will appoint a guardian to protect his young daughter's interests in the estate because she's a minor. Bourdain wrote his will in December 2016 and named his wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, as executor.

Lawmakers howled as a beleaguered May paid tribute to two senior members of her Cabinet who resigned rather than accept her proposals.

She said: 'I am sorry - and a little surprised - to receive it [resignation letter] after the productive discussions we had at Chequers on Friday, and the comprehensive and detailed proposal which we agreed as a Cabinet'. "It's not even an accidental betrayal, it was planned and plotted well in advance", said Conservative lawmaker Andrew Bridgen. The prime minister now faces a crunch meeting of the parliamentary party this evening.

Hunt, who backed the "remain" side in Britain's 2016 European Union membership referendum, favors keeping close economic ties to the bloc, after the United Kingdom leaves next year.

With less than nine months left until Britain is due to leave the bloc, May is sticking to her plan for a "business friendly" Brexit, facing down hardline Brexit supporters in her Conservative Party who are livid over her plans to negotiate a "free trade area for goods" with the EU. "This is the right Brexit".

Yet if Brexit is to mean anything, it must surely give Ministers and Parliament the chance to do things differently to protect the public.

Le Figaro, the conservative French broadsheet, says the prime minister has been "destabilised by a pro-Brexit revolt", although the inside editorial points out the "mutiny is far from having been won".

"The country is at a standstill with a divided and shambolic government".
