13.10.2017 | Tory rebellion forces delay to flagship Brexit bill
Source - The Telegraph

Theresa May’s plans for Brexit were in disarray on Thursday after it emerged her flagship Brexit bill has been put on hold because of a potentially disastrous Tory rebellion. The EU Withdrawal Bill had been scheduled for scrutiny by MPs next week, but has now been taken out of the parliamentary calendar because the Government faces defeat on more than a dozen hostile amendments. It came on the day that Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, admitted that “no deal” was now a real possibility after talks in Brussels reached deadlock. There were also calls from a former Conservative chancellor for Mrs May to sack Philip Hammond for attempting to “sabotage” Mrs May’s Brexit plans. The developments added to a growing sense in Westminster that Brexit is grinding to a halt because of opposition in Brussels and in Parliament to the Government strategy.
