How many Tory MPs might vote against May’s Brexit deal?

British Prime Minister Theresa May secured an agreement with European Union leaders on Sunday that will see Britain leave the bloc in March next year with continued close trade ties

President of the European Council Donald Tusk today said if parliament rejects the draft agreement proposed by Theresa May the United Kingdom will face two options: no deal or no Brexit.

"A few days before the vote in the House of Commons, it is becoming more and more clear that this deal is the best possible - in fact, the only possible one", Tusk said, ruling out any renegotiation by the European Union if the British parliament votes down last Sunday's deal on December 11.

Asked about a no-deal scenario, Dr Fox told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "Well, I think, as Roberto Azevedo, director-general of the World Trade Organisation, said, it wouldn't be a disaster, but it wouldn't be a walk in the park either".

With less than a fortnight to go to the historic House of Commons vote on her plan, the Prime Minister urged all MPs - including 100 or more Tories who have said they may rebel - to cast their vote "in the national interest" and back a deal which she said would deliver Brexit while protecting jobs.

Britain's 52-48 per cent 2016 vote to leave the European Union strained the ties of the four-nation United Kingdom because England and Wales voted to leave but Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay.

He said: 'You do not always get what you deserve. "It was a poorly taken free-kick, but luckily Pique was there". PSV unlucky not to go into the break at least one goal in front after twice hitting the frame of the goal.

"If they can not look their constituents in the eye and say it is, they must vote this deal down and then hand the decision back to the people".

Speaking as she travelled to the G20 economic summit in Argentina, the PM said: "A divided country is not a country that prospers".

"If you look at the Labour Party's amendment, it doesn't put forward a concrete alternative".

With scores of Tory MPs now publicly opposed to the deal, his departure highlighted the scale of the task the Prime Minister faces if she is to win the crunch vote in the Commons on December 11. "What I see from Labour is an attempt to frustrate what the government is doing to deliver Brexit for the British people".

She got a vote of confidence Saturday from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who praised May's "leadership" in sealing the Brexit agreement. "I think it is important we bring the country together and actually look to our future outside the European Union".

Brian Monteith, director of communications at Global Britain, accused the prime minister of "selling the country short", slamming her draft deal agreed with Brussels earlier this month.

"What is being presented to the public as a sensible compromise Brexit deal, a 52/48 Brexit as some call it, will not bring closure or heal the divisions of Brexit", he said.

She said at a news conference that "passing this deal. will take us to certainty for the future, and that failure to do that would only lead to uncertainty".

"We will be doing plenty of engagement in the coming days with colleagues to set out the merits and virtues of our case", a senior source in her Conservative Party said.

"The EU said there was nothing else available, but what you see in the [Brexit deal] is.a more ambitious free trade agreement than Canada, that ends free movement which Norway doesn't do".
