UK Ministers Tell Theresa May To Stand Down: "No Deal In The Desert"

May will traipse off to the desert to meet EU leaders on Sunday. "No Deal" is already the official response.

In the latest Brexit latest news, Theresa May Must Quit in Three Months, some cabinet ministers warn.

Theresa May must stand down after the local elections in May to allow a new leader to deliver the next stage of Brexit negotiations, Cabinet ministers have warned. Ministers said that the Prime Minister will have to leave after the first phase of Brexit negotiations are concluded or she will face defeat in a vote of no confidence at the end of the year.

Meanwhile, John McDonnell has warned that the Labour Party is "moving towards" backing a second referendum, as he indicated that it could become the price their MPs would demand from Mrs May to support her Brexit deal. The Shadow Chancellor told the Evening Standard that "we've kept [a second referendum] on the table and we're moving towards that", suggesting that an amendment by MPs Peter Kyle and Phil Wilson calling for the party to back a deal provided there was a public vote on it "could be a solution". The amendment has reportedly been endorsed by shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer at an internal party meeting this week.

This comes as a group of 100 moderate Tory MPs warned the Prime Minister that they will try to force her to delay Brexit next week if she cannot reach a deal, while a Tory defector told the Telegraph that the prospect of Parliament supporting bids to delay Brexit were a "done deal".
