'The direct consequences of that will be Prime Minister Corbyn'.

What we shall be accepting is the whole European Union rule book, the Acquis Communautaire, meaning we shall not be free to make our own rules and, as a direct result, not be able to establish trade agreements with the US, Australia, China and others.

Tory divisions over Brexit continued to boil over as Theresa May was warned to prepare for more resignations from her top team.

Michael Gove left no doubt that he would not follow Boris Johnson and David Davis out of the Cabinet, declaring that he backed the Prime Minister's plans "100 per cent".

Under party rules, 48 Tory MPs, 15% of the party's 316-strong representation in the Common, must write to the chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, to trigger a no-confidence vote.

But so far she has stood firm in her resolve to hold on to her leadership and insists that she is confident of seeing through her proposals for a smooth exit from the EU.

Much will depend on European reactions to May´s plan and she is due to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel later on Tuesday at the Western Balkans Summit in London.

May's plan would create a free trade area with the European Union for goods, to protect supply chains in areas such as manufacturing, while maintaining flexibility for Britain's dominant service sector.

In 1982, three foreign office ministers quit, taking responsibility for Argentina's invasion of the Falkland Islands.

Fianna Fail's Brexit spokesperson Lisa Chambers said the double resignation was of "grave concern" but urged the British Government to continue with its plan to publish the white paper this week.

"When he says the Brexit dream is dying, he's really talking about the perspective he had on Brexit, but in my view that was never a live possibility in any instance".

"I've listened to every possible idea and every possible version of Brexit".

"We will not get a clean, democratic Brexit under Theresa May and if the Conservative Party don't come to their senses, then yes, when there is a leadership contest in Ukip at the end of March next year, then I would seriously consider throwing my hat back in the ring". These have all but stalled because of her reticence of show her cards until now for fear of angering one of the two main factions of her party.

Not since 1982 - over the Falklands, a literal war - have two Secretaries of State resigned within 24 hours.

"For the Irish Government to be offering commentary or anything else, quite frankly, on a hard political day for the Prime Minister would be unhelpful to her".

The reason May's premiership has descended into chaos is, like so many of our political leaders, she said she would do one thing and then did the exact opposite. "Brussels must not mistakenly conclude, as EU Council chief Donald Tusk hinted, that one more push will destroy Brexit".

In the June 23, 2016 referendum, 17.4 million voters, or 51.9 percent, backed leaving the European Union, while 16.1 million voters, or 48.1 percent, backed staying.

As England prepare to take on Croatia in the Fifa World Cup semi-final, it's hard to tell who will end up with more own goals - the 2018 Russian Federation tournament or the British government.

As the MP for Mansfield, I believe that the nearly three-quarters of local people who voted Leave did so wanting to give Britain control of its own destiny, its borders and its laws.

Boris Johnson might be the most likely challenger, but has not exactly covered himself in glory considering his undiplomatic language about business, declining to make good on his promise to lie down in front of bulldozers to obstruct a third Heathrow runway, and seemingly flip-flopping repeatedly over whether to support May's plan.
