Brexit referendum Q&A: is another poll becoming more likely?

Failure to obtain generous access to EU markets could prompt calls for Britain to row back on financial rules to boost the City of London’s competitiveness a step British regulators have warned against.—Reuters

The Chequers agreement, which is only a starting point for negotiations with the European Union, has already led to the resignations of her Brexit minister David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson, and the eurosceptic faction say it has to change.

Justine Greening believes that the PM's plan is the "worst of both worlds" and will upset Brexiteers and Remainers leaving many wondering: 'What's the point?' The options she has proposed are May's Brexit deal as proposed last week, a "no deal" Brexit, or a reversal of the original referendum result - meaning that the United Kingdom would remain in the EU.

"I suspect the Chequers deal is, in fact, dead", Conservative lawmaker Bernard Jenkin told the BBC.

"In terms of who ultimately holds the pen on the papers that go to Cabinet for collective decision, it has been the Cabinet Office's Europe Unit, and they have clearly been operating to a different ultimate goal to the one what we were operating to".

Speaking to the BBC's Andrew Marr, May indicated she would seek to fight off any challenge that emerged before the summer recess, saying: "I want to focus people's minds on how you ensure you achieve that prize, the benefits of leaving the European Union".

Although the measures are unlikely to pass in the absence of Labour support, it could prove an opportunity for a show of strength by the rebels meant to pressurise her into retreat.

The Prime Minister said threatened Commons revolts by pro- and anti-EU MPs risked undermining any chances of a deal with Brussels.

'Now, if they do whatever they do, they have to.

"Theresa May has got a lot of great qualities - I am not sure if it is the right leader at the right time", he said.

"You know, I've called it a carve out for this".

Discussing the Prime Minister's Chequers plan for Brexit she said: "I don't think it can work".

It has been reported that more than 100 Brexiteer MPs have joined a WhatsApp group coordinating voting tactics against Mrs May, and would be meeting ahead of a vote on the customs bill.

The amendments to the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill have been proposed by arch-eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg. "We'll have an idea of the numbers, I suppose, at 10 o'clock on Monday evening".

Former worldwide development secretary Priti Patel, who is proposing one of four amendments to the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill, told BBC Radio 4's Westminster Hour the white paper had "many flaws around our independence and our ability to make free trade agreements".

It is thought that global development secretary Penny Mordaunt, work and pensions secretary Esther McVey and Brexit minister Suella Braverman could resign in the coming days.

Mr Johnson also made his first public intervention since his resignation last week, with a column in the Daily Telegraph pledging to resist "for now" the urge to "bang on about Brexit".

'People around the world believe passionately in Britain. "It's time we shared their confidence".
