Conservative lawmakers discuss ousting British PM May

They have also said there is no need to leave without a deal and have accused opponents of Brexit of scare-mongering.

But Conservative lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg, head of the pro-Brexit European Research Group, which led the work on the alternative plan, said the full document would not be published.

Comments at the meeting were said to have included "everyone I know says she has to go" and "she's a disaster", the BBC reported. "Theresa May has enormous virtues, she is a fantastically dutiful prime minister and she has my support - I just want her to change one item of policy".

May's spokesman said the prime minister would fight any attempt to oust her, adding that the government was focused on taking forward her so-called Chequers proposals which he described as the only credible plan for Brexit.

May's proposal for a post-Brexit free trade area with the European Union for goods, which would include accepting a "common rulebook" for those goods, have angered committed Brexiteers inside her party. Eurosceptics in her party say that would leave Britain subject to decisions in Brussels without any input.

His comments were echoed by former Brexit secretary David Davis, who quit the Government over the Chequers plan which would see Britain maintain a "common rule book" with the European Union for trade in goods and agriculture.

At the end of last week, Mr Barnier was quoted as saying that the European Union was open to discussing the key Brexit stumbling blocks, especially the Irish border issue, which might help pave the way to an overall agreement.

"My view is we'll end up in a different place, a reset after Salzburg", he said.

The announcement triggered a jump in the British pound, hitting a five-week high against the United States dollar at $1.31, while rising 0.5 percent against the euro to €1.12. He has beforehand indicated that settlement would be foremost by mid-November to enable time for the foremost ratification procedures.The Brexit deal is to embody the so-known as divorce terms, as neatly as ushering in a 21-month transition duration.

Even a small rebellion inside her party on a final deal could spell the end of her minority government and throw Britain's exit into chaos.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove - one of the leaders of the official Leave campaign who ran unsuccessfully against Mrs May - also rallied behind the Prime Minister.

May's soft Brexit platform sparked the resignations of her Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who quit the cabinet in protest in July. The rift deepened this week with Johnson comparing May's plan to a "suicide vest" on Britain's constitution.

At the ERG meeting on Tuesday a number of MPs were understood to have said they had already handed letters of no confidence to Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 Committee, while others suggested they could follow suit. Under Conservative rules, a leadership election is triggered if 15 percent of Conservative lawmakers demand a vote of no confidence. "It'll be in November, when parliament votes on the deal", she said.

In a sign the Government remained committed to its plan, he told BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "I think the only deal that we've got on the table, that's the Chequers deal".
