May told: Time for progress on deal or walk away

Theresa May has been told to go for No Deal if the EU make any more outrageous demands, and she could face a backbench revolt if she makes any more concessions.

Tories and key Brexit figures signed a letter from Leave Means Leave which reads:

It urges May to walk away and trade under WTO rules if the EU keep making extortionate financial demands and Britain doesn’t get a free trade agreement.

Signatories include John Redwood MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Richard Tice, Wetherspoon boss Tim Martin and John Longworth, co-Chair of Leave Means Leave.

May is meeting with Juncker today, so it remains to be seen what the outcome will be – but if she comes back and tries to tell the nation that she’s signed Britain up to paying billions of pounds for a lousy trade and the ECJ is still in charge, she might not be in a job much longer.
