Tory MPs urge May to reject long Brexit delay

Home Affairs Correspondent

Now as many as 170 Tory MPs, thought to include several ministers, have signed a letter calling on Theresa May not to agree a long delay to Brexit, whether there’s a deal or not.

Senior ministers are also reported to have urged the PM to “embrace no deal” – although Number 10 is still considering whether to bring Mrs May’s beleaguered agreement back before the House for a fourth time – or with options fast running out, call for a general election.
