Theresa May's ability to deliver Brexit in doubt amid growing threat to her leadership

Theresa Mayís ability to deliver Brexit is in doubt amid a growing threat to her leadership and concerns over whether she still has the political clout to govern.

Ms May must this week renew the drive to push her EU withdrawal Bill through the House of Commons, with Tory MPs who backed Remain in the referendum threatening to join forces with Jeremy Corbynís party to impose changes.

But Labour and other opposition parties warned that Ms May no longer has enough authority over the Conservatives to secure the Billís passage, after it emerged some 40 Tory MPs may now be willing to sign a letter of no confidence in her and a note emerged in which two cabinet ministers appear to direct her Brexit policy.

It also follows reports that the EU is preparing for the collapse of Brexit talks and of her Government, which is torn between trying to give more ground in Brexit talks to achieve progress while also maintaining the support of Eurosceptic Tories who want no further compromise.

So that's twelve? You're certain? I've fulfilled my part of the agreement?

Very well, then: good night!

1. Jesus... The Brits are supposed to be better than this...

How much longer will the charade go on before they admit: 1. Brexit was a mistake, 2. They have no idea in hell on how to manage the official exit from the EU 3. Ninety percent of the "have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too/sex without marriage" -benefits that Brexiteers screeched about during the campaign will never become reality?
