May under Brexit pressure, receives warning from 13 former ministers

By NewsDesk,

Pressure may not seize hitting Britain Prime Minister, Theresa May, over her unresolved decision on Brexit, with 13 former ministers raising alarming against ditching talks with Labour or risk losing ‘loyal middle’ of the Tory party.

The former ministers, together with chairman of  backbench 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, have written to May, warning her not to give ground over Labour’s key demand for a customs union.

However, the signatories were said to include political leadership contenders, Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab, as well as Gavin Williamson, who was sacked as defence secretary earlier May.

The intervention, has come as May prepares to brief senior ministers on the state of the talks.

They began in April but there is little sign of any breakthrough. Labour are demanding a customs union with the EU after Brexit but May has always been adamant that the UK must leave the trading bloc.

The letter warns the Prime Minister that if she concedes to Labour demands, she will lose more Tory MPs in the Commons that she gains Labour backers.

The group also made the point that Mrs May should not bind her successor to a deal with Labour.
