CABINET ministers cling to their red boxes like drowning men as Theresa May drives her stricken government towards the rocks. Ex-Brexit cheerleaders Liam Fox and Michael Gove can be seen firing distress flares to save May’s Brexit bodge. Theresa May’s defeat in next week’s Brexit vote would mean the end of her premiership It is not a good look. Mrs May’s defeat in next week’s crucial Withdrawal Bill vote will almost certainly mark the end of her premiership. It might also mark the beginning of the end for the Conservative Party. Nobody would cheer louder than Momentum’s Marxist Labour insurgents. A Christmas election could mean the advent of Jeremy Corbyn in No10 There is even wild talk of an emergency Christmas election and the advent of bearded Marxist Jeremy Corbyn as Red Santa. Downing Street is fuelling the nightmare with a trash-and-burn campaign of terror among Tory waverers, rallying party supporters against their own MPs and leaving a legacy of distrust and disillusion. A stream of wobbling Brexiteers has been deployed in pro-Brussels newspapers and the ever co-operative BBC. Even “deep-thinking” cookery writer Delia Smith was hauled in for her two euros’ worth. It was startling to watch my old colleague Michael Gove brazenly sell his soul on the europhile Andrew Marr Show. Michael Gove brazenly sold his soul on the europhile BBC’s Andrew Marr Show Mr Gove’s friends believe he has suffered a crisis of self-confidence since severing his friendship with David Cameron and knifing fellow Brexit architect Boris Johnson. The Environment Secretary admits he “reflected long and hard” about quitting over Mrs May’s deeply unpopular deal. He was more cautious, saying it was “less than perfect”. He then insisted Britain was a great trading nation and would survive any short-term “turbulence” if we left the EU on March 29 without a deal.

It sounded very much like the old Michael Gove — until he insisted that we must support Theresa’s dodgy deal, regardless. This is astonishing, since he and fellow Cabinet Brexiteers such as Fox, Penny Mordaunt, Andrea Leadsom and Chris Grayling will have seen secret legal advice that the deal is an EU trap. In a bombshell document, Attorney-General Geoffrey Cox warns the detested “backstop” dividing Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK “would endure indefinitely”. Attorney General Geoffrey Cox warns the detested ‘backstop’ dividing Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK ‘would endure indefinitely’ Dancing forever to Europe’s “Ode To Joy” is apparently better than a brief period of turbulence by leaving of our own accord. Mr Gove suggests the kindly burghers of Brussels would never humiliate Britain and have as much to lose from a backstop as we do. They would set us free as soon as possible. I have known Mr Gove for 25 years. Mr Gove believes EU chiefs would never humiliate Britain as they lose as much as we do from a backstop He is a profoundly decent and intelligent man. But he must know from long and bitter experience that this is not how the EU works. We have naughtily asked to leave. If we do well, we would encourage others to follow suit. We must be duly punished. We need a new leader and a new Prime Minister EU leaders can see — apparently more clearly than our own abject leaders — just how well we might do and how much of a threat a prosperous, independent Britain would pose to their Grand Project. Nobody can be certain what will happen after next Tuesday’s crunch vote. A snap election or a second referendum are unthinkable but possible. Returning to full EU membership is both unthinkable and impossible. Returning to full EU membership is both unthinkable and impossible There are alternatives… the Norway Option, Canada Plus… but they are fraught with complications. Yet there is a way we could avoid Mr Gove’s “turbulence” and leave in an orderly fashion without any deal at all. We don’t have to “crash out” or drive off a cliff like Thelma and Louise. Neither option would be good for Britain — or the EU. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN OPINION” posts_category=”359″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] It should be possible to negotiate a 12 to 18-month window to prepare a deal which suits both sides — and pay an appropriate sum to Brussels for the extra time. First, of course, we need a new leader and a new Prime Minister. That is almost as complicated as Brexit. [boxout headline=”Kate Osamor finally leaves Labour Party”]DISGRACED Labour MP Kate Osamor has finally quit Jeremy Corbyn’s team, but only after proof she lied about knowing her son Ishmael was a convicted drug handler. Ms Osamor told a Times reporter who confronted her with the evidence: “I should have come down here with a bat and smashed your face in.” “F*** off,” she added and chucked a bucket of water. Two questions.   Is it any surprise Ishmael grew up with contempt for the law? And what would have happened to a Tory MP who behaved like that to a Guardian hack? [/boxout]

I strongly believe that women will be the main losers from tax and it will get worse within the years. The government promises to help them, but recent budget won’t let them.

Theresa May is set to snub Donald Trump at the G20 summit after he savaged her Brexit deal as ‘great for the EU’ – and warned it would hit trade with the US.

The PM’s spokesman said there were ‘no plans’ to hold talks with the President at the gathering in Argentina following his dramatic intervention – which echoed the complaints of Brexiteers and threatened to kill off the package altogether.

As the government reeled from the blow, one minister highlighted a tweet claiming Mr Trump wanted to ‘finish off’ Mrs May, while Cabinet Office minister David Lidington said bluntly that he was ‘wrong’.

Asked if Mrs May would try to explain the situation to Mr Trump at the summit on Friday and Saturday, the PM’s spokesman said she would hold bilateral talks with other leaders, but had ‘none planned’ with the

Former Bletchley Park codebreaker Baroness Trumpington has died, aged 96.

The Tory peer, who sat on the red benches for nearly four decades, served as an agriculture minister under both Margaret Thatcher and Sir John Major.

But the former Bletchley Park code breaker was thrown into the public consciousness seven years ago when she was caught on camera sticking a V-sign at a fellow peer in the chamber.

Theresa May pleaded with MPs not to send Britain ‘back to square one’ today as she ran the gauntlet of fury in the Commons.

The Prime Minister made her latest desperate bid to win over critics after sealing the package at an EU summit over the weekend. 

Despite looking on track for a catastrophic defeat in a crunch vote in Parliament next month, Mrs May told MPs they had a ‘duty’ to listen to constituents and do ‘what is in the national interest’. 

But she was berated by politicians from all sides – including Boris Johnson, David Davis and Iain Duncan Smith. The DUP again condemned the backstop, while Jeremy Corbyn said the package pleased ‘nobody’.
