Theresa May under pressure to change Brexit plan amid leadership threat


UK Government publishes White Paper on Brexit

"If we don't, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all", she wrote in an article in the Mail on Sunday newspaper.

"I'm afraid it is neither beloved by Remainers or Leavers". He told MPs that the issue "has got much more hard since becoming politicised" but was "eminently soluble".

Sir Bernard told the programme that the Chequers plan was "dead", with opposition from both wings of the Tory party.

Brexiter MPs, led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, on Monday forced the government to back four amendments to Brexit legislation, including one meant to scupper May's plans for a new customs deal. The latter claimed the Chequers deal would leave the United Kingdom in the status of a "colony" to Europe and claimed the Brexit "dream was dying".

Netflix shares dive as subscriber growth falls short
Apple Inc is pouring money into original programming, signing up A-list names including Oprah Winfrey. Chief Executive Reed Hastings, in a letter to shareholders, called it a "strong but not stellar Q2".

"I'm sure Theresa May does not want to split the Conservative Party and therefore she will find that the inevitable effect of the parliamentary arithmetic is that she will need to change it (the Brexit policy) to keep the party united", Rees-Mogg said.

The Leave-supporting Conservative MP, who was elected after David Cameron stepped down following the Brexit vote, is the latest official to resign over Mrs May's proposals for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

May defended her plan as she opened the Farnborough International Airshow.

Ministers have warned pro-European Tory MPs not to "refight the referendum" as the government faces a further test of its Brexit authority in the Commons.

Netflix's share price slumps 14 per cent after disappointing second quarter
Netflix posted its earnings report for the June quarter today and revealed that it added 5.15 million subscribers for the quarter. That's compared with analyst estimates that Netflix would have Q3 net adds of 947,000 in the US and 5.05 million internationally.

Justine Greening, an ex-Education Secretary who quit the government in January, said May's negotiating strategy would neither please those who wanted a clean break with the European Union nor those who opposed Brexit altogether. He added that the political system in the country was "being torn apart" by Brexit and a second referendum may be needed if MPs could not reach a consensus on the issue.

"Parliament is now stalemated on a way forward on Brexit, if it's the prime minister's deal it will be voted down, if it's a proposal for no deal that will be voted down, all parliament can do is block a route forward".

Prime Minister Theresa May was clinging to power today after agreeing a compromise with hard-line Brexiteers who threatened to torpedo her Chequers plan.

European Union leaders urged preparedness for a possible no deal when they agreed at their summit last month to "step up their work on preparedness at all levels and for all outcomes". "So it's time to let the British public do it instead". But on July 6, May came off the fence and proposed what's become known as her "Chequers Plan", which would keep the United Kingdom close to the EU after it has left, but outside the customs union. The new UK Brexit secretary Dominic Raab will meet the EU'S chief negotiator Michel Barnier on Thursday (19 July).

Conor McGregor on Putin: "One of the greatest leaders of our time"
Conor McGregor's recent high praise of Vladimir Putin has proven the old adage, "politics makes unusual bedfellows", true. McGregor made a court apperance last month after he was charged with several crimes following an April bus attack.

Labour Brexit spokeswoman Jenny Chapman criticised Mr Raab for failing to attend the start of the new round of talks: "Over the past week the Government's Brexit strategy has descended into utter chaos. This is simply not good enough".
