CABINET MINISTERS HAVE SPOKEN TO THE PRESS AND HAVE TOLD MRS MAY WHAT TO DO WITH A NO DEAL BREXIT.

The cabinet is currently split 50/50 between Remain and Leave MPs which is one of the reasons why Brexit has been a struggle since the get-go.

The UK is set to leave with no deal on the 12th April after Mrs May’s deal was once again rejected in the Commons.

The Prime Minister would have received a delay until mid-May if her deal got through the Commons for time to pass further necessary legislation.

According to a report in the Telegraph, MPs in the cabinet are set to urge Mrs May to embrace a no deal Brexit.

One MP told the Telegraph: “Cabinet needs to vote and decide on the government position. David Cameron did it before the referendum when he asked Ministers to put on record their positions.

“There has to be a vote in Cabinet, we have got to put our names to something.

“The Remainers clearly want a Customs Union as an alternative but there isn’t a majority for that in the party – it would destroy the party.

“We would end up with a Ramsay MacDonald-esque Government where we would be completely at odds with our own party. It’s time to be bold, we need to embrace No Deal.”

Mrs May hinted that she could call a general election if MPs fail to break the impasse, writing: “I fear we are reaching the limits of this Process in House”.

Brexiteers argue that they did not vote for a ‘deal’, but to leave the European Union, whereas remainers claim that voting Brexiteers did not mean voting to be poorer and worse off.
