- scrap formal Brexit talks with Labour
- ministers who previously supported them lose faith … Philip Hammond, the chancellor, is understood to have told colleagues that, while “amiable”, they are being held on the “false premise” that a politically acceptable deal could ever be struck.
- and launch a final attempt to secure a compromise in parliament
Supporters of a deal with the European Union are preparing to use tomorrow’s cabinet meeting to urge the prime minister to set a timetable for indicative votes by MPs after the European elections.
