Defence minister resigns as crucial Brexit vote clears Commons

On Monday, MPs vote on the Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill.

Theresa May suffered a tenth resignation in less than a fortnight as the government scraped through a crucial vote forced on ministers by Brexiteers angry at her plan for negotiations with the EU.

Parliament could also consider a government attempt to bring forward its summer break to Thursday from next week, which the government says is logical because there is very little parliamentary business in the remaining days. Greening, a former Education secretary who quit May's government in January, is the highest-profile Conservative to support a second vote, though she was not an advocate of leaving the E.U.in the first place.

"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".

On Sunday, Robert Courts, the MP who took over David Cameron's old constituency said he was resigning as a parliamentary private secretary to the Foreign Office so that he could vote against the government in the customs bill.

One of the amendments practically says that the United Kingdom should not be collecting tariffs for Brussels unless the European Union does the same for Britain, one of the key ideas in May's original Brexit white paper that was created to keep the Irish border invisible. He said that he had taken the "very hard decision" to resign "to express discontent" in votes.

Tory Remainers claimed the government was being held to ransom by 40 MPs and that Jacob Rees-Mogg appeared to be running the country rather than the Prime Minister.

Once the leaders entered, the content of the press conference delivered on the promise of the spectacle of the rest of the day. The Russian president also rejected allegations that Moscow has collected compromising material on Mr Trump or his family.

Ahead of the vote, Tory MPs were told a defeat would lead to a vote of no confidence in the government, sources told the BBC's John Pienaar. She added: "I have always said I'm in this for the long term".

Rees-Mogg, the leader of the powerful European Research Group of eurosceptic Conservative MPs, said May still had time to change course and warned the current plan would split the party.

It remains far from clear whether Brussels will accept her plans.

The bill is also due to have its third reading on Monday, and it could be in jeopardy if the angry Tory Brexiters join with Labour, the SNP and the Lib Dems, who are expected to vote against it.
