This has been a good week for Brexit says Tánaiste

Mrs May was warned she faced "guerilla warfare" from Tory MPs angry at concessions that prompted Boris Johnson to warn the Brexit "dream is dying".

The US ambassador to Britain, Woody Johnson, said meeting Johnson was "not on the schedule but the president makes his own schedule".

Brexit betrayed or the end of May: What does David Davis's resignation mean? The tousle-headed blond Johnson is one of Britain's best-known politicians, and one of the most prominent advocates for Brexit.

"It may resolve the dilemma the Prime Minister faces".

For the time being, May's saving grace may well be that the United Kingdom premiership is a poisoned chalice that no serious politician-even Johnson-should want until Brexit is over and done with.

"The Government now has a song to sing".

The government promises the paper will lay out a "comprehensive vision" for the UK's future trade relationship with the European Union as well as ensuring that the two sides continue to co-operate in the future.

May met with Conservative lawmakers in a packed room at Parliament, in a bid to calm the feverish atmosphere in the deeply divided party.

"We will not get a clean, democratic Brexit under Theresa May and if the Conservative Party don't come to their senses, then yes, when there is a leadership contest in Ukip at the end of March next year, then I would seriously consider throwing my hat back in the ring". May has spoken about the great potential of a US-UK trade deal, and undoubtedly sees it as a key part of her post-Brexit plan.

"My concern is about the policy rather than the individual", he said. Britain is due to leave the European Union next March, marking the biggest foreign and trading policy shift in nearly half a century.

In a remark addressed in particular to Mr Johnson, Mr Hague said: "Being a romantic on this issue is all very well but is of no practical use to the country".

May, who has tried to keep calm and carry on, replaced Johnson with a loyalist, former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, and gave Davis' job to Dominic Raab in a bid to shore up her authority.

Government unity began to fray within hours.

But the plan has infuriated fervent Brexit supporters in May's Conservative Party, who think it would limit Britain's ability to strike new trade deals around the world. 'We are leaving no stone unturned as we prepare to leave the European Union and this will not change.

Boris's resignation letter is scathing.

Appearing in the House of Commons just minutes later, a confident-sounding May defended her Brexit plan.

Addressing Parliament on Monday, May told MPs that she and the two ministers were at odds over "the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum".

Together with a customs partnership (which would require the U.K.to collect tariffs on the EU's behalf), this could remove the need for a physical border between Ireland and Northern Ireland - avoiding one of the greatest dangers aroused by this ill-conceived project - and allow close-to-frictionless trade in goods between Britain and Europe.
