We have been shown, in the starkest terms yet, that there are plenty of people who want to thwart Brexit.

Mr Grieve is among a group of MPs calling for a second referendum.

Meanwhile, two of the biggest donors to the Leave campaign said they thought Brexit would eventually be abandoned by the Government and that the United Kingdom would stay in the EU. "That is something that we would regret for many, many generations".

Writing in today's Sunday Express, the Prime Minister begged the Commons to back her deal arguing not doing so would be "catastrophic". We have seen from this week that Parliament has the ability to assert itself and to shape outcomes.

He used an article in the Sunday Telegraph to urge MPs to vote down Mrs May's "bad" deal to send a message to Brussels that the United Kingdom "will not be bullied".

Admitting there are different views on what the future should look like, Mrs May says her deal "pulls together the huge variety of options into a Brexit that works for the whole of the United Kingdom".

Downing Street was preparing for a narrow defeat allowing Mrs May to renegotiate final tweaks to her deal with European Union leaders realising it could cross the finish line. The only deal we have is the withdrawal agreement. "Instead of embarking on another fruitless effort of renegotiation, it is time to hand this crucial decision back to the people".

Mrs May faced further opposition to her deal from her former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab.

Although the British Prime Minister had postponed the vote which had originally been set for December in order to get enough lawmakers from her own party or others to back the deal she has made with Brussels, she is still reportedly expected to lose the vote.

Asked whether she agreed with Mr Hunt that the United Kingdom could thrive after a no-deal Brexit, Ms Rudd told Today: "This is a strong and great country, we will find a way to succeed but I do not think that no-deal would be good for this country and I'm committed to making sure we find an alternative".

Under British electoral law, the Conservatives would have two weeks to try to form a new government after losing a confidence vote.

But she stressed: "I intend to work with colleagues to make sure we avoid it".

While Grayling stopped short of predicting riots on the street if Brexit was weakened or reversed, he painted a picture of a "less tolerant society" and a "more nationalistic nation", as indicated by the incident with pro-Remain MP Anna Soubry.
