Britain's PM May gives ground on customs bill to avoid vote defeat

"If we don't, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all."

Discussing the prime minister's Chequers plan for Brexit, Ms Greening said: "I don't think it can work - I think it was a genuine clever attempt at a compromise that could work".

Her blueprint was then criticised in a newspaper interview by US President Donald Trump, a position he backtracked on during a meeting with Ms May on Friday.

But after talks with May at her Chequers country retreat over a lunch of Dover sole, Chiltern lamb and lemon meringue pie, Trump said he thought a post-Brexit trade deal would be possible. "It is a complete plan with a set of outcomes that are non-negotiable".

Mrs. May was asked by the BBC about comments Mr. Trump made both in an interview in the British tabloid The Sun and later at a Friday news conference at Chequers, the prime minister's country residence, northwest of London.

Her recent white paper outlining plans for a common rule book with the European Union over trade in goods has infuriated those who favor a complete break even if it risks causing an economic shock.

Ms May added that if party members called for a leadership spill she would stand in the contest, claiming that she is in it for the long term.

For now the impetus lies with the Brexit supporters.

She remained scrupulously silent during the Brexit referendum campaign in 2016, which saw Britain vote to exit the EU. They said the changes would greatly limit May's ability to move forward with the plan that prompted two hardliners in her Cabinet to resign in protest last week - and fresh resignations of lesser figures Monday.

"It is time for the British people to have their say", he said in January 2013.

"Be in no doubt: under the government's proposal our fingers would still be caught in this mangle and the European Union would use it ruthlessly to punish us for leaving and handicap our future competitiveness", Davis said. "I said (to Mrs May) "make sure you have a carve out, you have to have a carve out" - where no matter what happens they have the right to make a deal with the United States". "The weather is handsome and this place is incredible. That is a lovely woman".

May agreed to two amendments to legislation detailing Britain's future customs regime tabled by Jacob Rees-Mogg and other hardline Brexiteer MPs, that critics said stymie her own favoured plans, as she avoided a large-scale rebellion from her backbenchers. So usually that helps.

"[Until] I remember her desperate rush to invite him, her repeated reluctance to criticise his Muslim ban or caging of children, her chasing him for a bad trade deal".

'Just very elegant. And very attractive. Connor Campbell, an analyst at SpreadEx, said Trump's remark about a trade deal "undermines the prime minister at the end of an already challenging week".

"She is so sharp, so wise, so lovely".

"She's a very smart, very tough, very capable person and I would much rather have her as my friend than my enemy, that I can tell you".

But in order to remove the prime minister, May's opponents would need to collect 159 votes within the Conservative party.

"I'm sure Theresa May does not want to split the Conservative Party and therefore she will find that the inevitable outcome of the parliamentary arithmetic is that she will need to change it (the Brexit policy) to keep the party united", Rees-Mogg said.
