Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake has warned that the Prime Minister’s job remains under threat despite last minute concessions to amendments to the Customs Bill from the right-wing European Research Group. Mr Brake said:
“At one of the most critical junctures in our political history, the Tory Government is languishing in a state of civil war.
“Theresa May has now been forced to back the ragtag European Research Group’s amendments to the Customs Bill. This does nothing but postpone the battle for another day.
“The Prime Minister has caved in to the ideologues and lost the support of her ‘one nation’ backbenchers, the country and soon she could lose her job.
“The only way to avoid this crisis is to give the people the final say on the Brexit deal, and an opportunity to Exit from Brexit.”
