Even if a deal is struck, May could struggle to get backing from parliament for her Brexit stance. But Anna Soubry, a Conservative member of parliament who campaigned ahead of last year's referendum for Britain to stay in the European Union, disagreed.
Britain's typically pro-Conservative press questioned whether Mrs May could remain in power with the clock ticking on the two-year European Union divorce process. "The task of restoring orderly government in order to make sense of Brexit is now a national emergency, and it falls to them". Their influence had increasingly angered senior ministers.
