Brexit: PM warns of 'catastrophic breach of trust'

Mrs May's warning came as Downing Street was reported to be concerned about efforts by a cross-party group of MPs to change Commons rules to enable backbench motions to take precedence over government business if Mrs May's deal falls.

The London MP added: "There is no Brexit deal that fulfils all the promises made in the last referendum or one as good as the deal we've already got inside the EU".

Meanwhile, Labour is gearing up to stage a no-confidence vote immediately after the Brexit deal decision - potentially as early as Wednesday.

May promised to seek further guarantees from Brussels on the most contentious issue, the status of the Ireland-Northern Ireland border.

The agreement is meant to guarantee Britain's smooth departure from the bloc, with a long transition period to adapt to the new situation and negotiate a permanent trade agreement. Businesses and people would face uncertain weeks and months as they try to find out what the uncharted future would bring.

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".

He also revealed (in the lawsuit ) that Google provided them on the condition that they will not be published anywhere. Rubin's lawyer Ellen Winick Stross said the lawsuit does not accurately describe Rubin's departure from Google .

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said discussions were continuing with No 10 about assurances on the Irish border backstop, as he warned that a no-deal would be a "catastrophe".

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".

The Cabinet ministers were speaking as MPs prepared for the third day of debate in the House of Commons ahead of next Tuesday's crunch vote, with Home Secretary Sajid Javid opening proceedings which are expected to be dominated by the issue of migration. Many lawmakers who back leaving the European Union say it leaves the United Kingdom tethered to the bloc's rules and unable to forge an independent trade policy, while pro-Europeans argue it is inferior to the frictionless economic relationship Britain now enjoys as an European Union member.

If you feel like you ought to know more about Brexit.

It was previously thought only ministers could put a halt to Britain leaving with no deal. This week, lawmakers passed an amendment forcing the government to come back to Parliament with a new plan within three working days of the deal being rejected.
