Tories will lose next election unless May chucks Chequers, Davis tells MPs

In a statement to the Commons updating MPs following a summit of EU leaders in Salzburg last month, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab denied the United Kingdom would stay in the customs union indefinitely, and said the government would "press our case" for an outcome that will "preserve the integrity of the UK".

Conservative MP Steve Baker said on Tuesday that at least 40 of his colleagues are ready to vote against a deal which included that solution because it would represent a "half in, half out Brexit".

In a move that will be viewed by many as a leadership bid, Mr Davis branded Mrs May's stance on Chequers as "preposterous" and demanded the government "reset" its negotiating strategy immediately.

Davis wrote: "If we stay on our current trajectory we will go into the next election with the government having delivered none of the benefits of Brexit, with the country reduced to being a rule-taker from Brussels, and having failed to deliver on a number of promises in the manifesto and in the Lancaster House speech".

"This will not be a technicality, it will be very obvious to the electorate".

In order to make progress on the UK's withdrawal agreement at a European Council summit next week, Brussels and London must agree plans for a "backstop" to maintain the status quo along the Irish land border, with trade flowing freely between the Republic of Ireland and the north.

After Tuesday's weekly cabinet meeting, Downing Street made clear Mrs May would not agree to any withdrawal deal, including the £39bn so-called divorce bill to be paid to the European Union, without a "precise" declaration of the two sides' future trade and security partnership.

Dominic Raab "categorically" ruled out an indefinite customs union to resolve Irish border difficulties in the Brexit talks, amid Tory warnings over the Government's "gung-ho" approach to no deal.

DUP leader Arlene Foster, whose MPs prop up the minority Conservative administration in the Commons, closed down one mooted avenue for compromise by insisting her party will not accept customs or regulatory checks on goods travelling in either direction between Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

"The Prime Minister understands our position and I expect her to respect that position".

On Tuesday, the bloc's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier was reportedly considering delayed publishing a fresh version of the bloc's Brexit plan in anticipation of more concessions from the British. We've made that very clear.

His letter came just hours after International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt refused to give her explicit backing to Mrs May's Chequers blueprint, adding further pressure on the Prime Minister.

"We are awaiting the detail of exactly what we are going to be asked for vote for".
