Tory minister Sam Gyimah resigns in protest at Theresa May's withdrawal deal

Selling her deal Mrs May at the Scottish Leather Group in Bridge of Weir

He told the BBC this morning: "There is a blocking minority in the House of Commons for nearly every possible option which means that letting the people decide, now that we know more, might be the most sensible path for both Leavers and Remainers".

Theresa May has accused Labour of planning a "betrayal of the British people" by voting down her Brexit deal and pushing the country towards a no-deal departure from the EU.

Mrs May said that if her plan was voted down by Parliament, the government and businesses would have to make decisions about implementing preparations for no deal.

May also received support from Environment Secretary Michael Gove, a key Brexit-backing minister, who wrote in the Daily Mail newspaper that lawmakers should back the deal rather than hold out for a "perfect plan".

The longer she says that her deal is the only deal, the longer all MPs - including her own, like Gyimah - have to formulate counter-proposals.

Mrs May has said no, Labour says yes but only if it does not get a general election.

She added: "The focus of myself and the Government is on the vote taking place on December 11".

What is no longer working, as a threat to coral MPs into line, is the idea that the rejection of her plan will lead to a no-deal Brexit. And the position around which backbench MPs may coalesce is increasingly likely to be one she says she hates - such as another plebiscite.

"I think every MP needs to consider the importance of delivering on the Brexit vote together with the importance of doing that in a way that is good for their constituents, that protects their constituents' jobs and their livelihoods for the future".

A joint motion by parties except the Conservatives in Edinburgh's devolved parliament aims to underline the ire felt in much of Scotland which voted to remain in the European Union at a 2016 referendum.

EU Withdrawal Agreement how MPs could vote.

Echoing talking points already repeated in near-identical language by leaders including Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker themselves to the effect that there could not be any deal to the United Kingdom except the one already agreed, Polish politician turned Eurocrat Donald Tusk said at the globalist summit the only other options meant no deal.

Dr Fox said that reactions to Whitehall analysis showing that withdrawing from the European Union without an agreement would have severe economic consequences had been "overblown".

Asked if he thought the whole Cabinet would back the deal in the Commons, Dr Fox told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I think members of the Cabinet will vote for the deal".

The motion will be signed by the pro-independence Scottish National Party and Scottish Greens and the anti-independence Labour and Liberal Democrats.

But hinting at potential further resignations from Mrs May's top team over Brexit, he added: "Members of the Cabinet who don't vote for the deal won't be members of the Cabinet".
