Theresa May's day of Brexit reckoning is coming, sooner or later

The plea came as the EU (Withdrawal) Bill returns to the Commons tomorrow with ministers seeking to overturn a raft of amendments by the House of Lords meant to keep Britain close to the EU after Brexit.

In a statement on his website, Lee, a former GP, said it seemed inevitable that the "people, economy and culture of my constituency will be affected negatively" by leaving the European Union, and he called on the government to give the country another referendum on the final Brexit deal.

In the months that followed, May struggled to assert her authority over her party and government, with a string of ministers resigning from the Cabinet and disunity over Brexit among those who remained around her top table.

His resignation came hours before British Prime Minister Theresa May faces crunch votes in parliament and a potential showdown with pro-EU rebels in her ruling party over whether parliament can prevent a no-deal Brexit.

The government has also tried to stem rebellions by offering its own options - on the "meaningful vote", it has proposed a 28-day breathing space if parliament rejects a Brexit deal.

The Government is against the plan, believing it sends the wrong message to Brussels regarding the UK's negotiating goals.

Other amendments from the Lords to be debated Tuesday include transferring the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights into United Kingdom law and one forcing the government to negotiate to remain in the European Economic Area (EEA) like Norway.

The speech will come on the eve of two days of debates and voting on amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill, which is scheduled to last 12 hours.

Mrs May can count on the support of the 10 Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) MPs - secured as part of the confidence and supply deal - but not some Tory backbenchers who voted to remain.
