These Tories Are Furious With The Telegraph For Calling Them "Brexit Mutineers"

David Davis

However, Brexit secretary David Davis conceded that even if MPs failed to back that legislation - the withdrawal agreement and implementation bill, Britain would still leave the European Union on March 29, 2019.

Grieve, the ringleader of the rebellion, described Brexit as an "extraordinarily painful process of national self-mutilation" as he warned that he would not be ordered to vote against his conscience.

The group of MPs includes former chancellor Ken Clarke, former education secretary Nicky Morgan, former justice secretary Dominic Grieve, and chair of the liaison committee Sarah Wollaston.

Several Tories say they will vote against a bid to enshrine an exact date for Brexit in law.

Ministers want to set exit day as 2300 GMT on March 29, 2019. "The date going into the bill has really upset a lot of really top-quality backbench Conservative MPs".

He got an unusual round of applause from some MPs, who are not supposed to clap, for urging the government to reject its own "silly amendments thrown out because they got a good article in the Daily Telegraph".

He said there would have to be a vote on the deal and legislation, which could take place after Brexit "particularly if the government's amendments are passed which increases that risk".

"Putting the date on the bill jeopardises that, and it's disappointing that those who argued most strongly for Brexit are the ones most keen to see the government tie its own hands".

But critics warn the European Union withdrawal bill - also known as the repeal bill - represents a power-grab by ministers, while others see the legislation as a chance to shape the prime minister's Brexit policy.

If I wanted to do that, I would not have supported Article 50.

Anna Soubry, a former minister, told the BBC: "It was stormy because you have got people at that meeting who have never spoken out".

But it was not only the Tories who were stricken by in-fighting as Labour MPs also turned on each other as tempers. This, she said, was a "blatant piece of bullying".

Brexit minister Steve Baker, who spoke for the government in Tuesday's debate, tweeted: "I regret any media attempts to divide our party". It then won a vote endorsing a clause in the bill to repeal the European Communities Act by 318 votes to 68.

"When you've voted for that you should abide by the outcome of the decision".

Her battle with her backbenchers comes against a backdrop of growing concern in Downing Street about lack of progress in the Brexit talks.

These are the financial settlement with Brussels, the Northern Ireland Border and the rights of citizens.

"The headline in the Telegraph is frankly so stupid because it doesn't recognise that all of my colleagues and I accept Brexit".
