A no deal situation would lead to ‘parliamentary revolt’, says Tom Brake

Liberal Democrat spokesman for international affairs Tom Brake says the prospect of a no deal Brexit could unite Remainers across all parties

Former Brexit secretary David Davis warned Tory MPs on Tuesday against accepting Theresa May’s Chequers deal, and his former special adviser Stuart Jackson has voiced his support, hinting that there are up to 50 Tory rebels poised to oppose Chequers.  In a letter, Davis said a deal based on Theresa May's Chequers plan would deliver "none of the benefits of Brexit" and reduce the UK to being "a rule-taker from Brussels".  Davis resigned as Brexit secretary in July over his opposition to Chequers.  Read more:
