Theresa May's full statement from Downing Street

Theresa May tonight insisted she WON'T quit and stuck to her Brexit plan - as her leadership hung by a thread. The PM vowed to fight "with every fibre of my being" hours after Jacob Rees-Mogg pulled the trigger on a Brexiteer rebellion which could see a leadership challenge next week. Boris Johnson joined an emergency meeting of mutinous MPs this afternoon where plotters were set to launch a vote of confidence in the PM after a wave of resignations over her Brexit deal. Mr Rees-Mogg, who chairs the powerful European Research Group of pro-Brexit Tories, today called for Mrs May to resign - adding that a Brexiteer such as BoJo should replace her.

Off with her head
Her relationship with Merkel is more important to her than her relationship with the citizens of the UK

This resignation of the Brexit secretary reveals an even more serious long term problem for the British people, which is this: If the 500 page " agreement " was not drafted by the Brexit Secretary then who did draft it.

May believes she can fool the people. The world has changed, its no longer possible for any government to pull the wool over the eyes of the electorate. Mays words in this broadcast are Fake News, and she is fooling nobody on either side of the debate.
So, Brexit means not participating in decisions, just obeying the orders of the European Union, right?
How rare are the British!

"Some of them are a weak lot you know" Maggie Thatcher on Europe. Imagine Barnier laughing at this farce now. Europe would never have made little of the UK under Maggie. I was glad when she was gone but I would swap this one out for Maggie in a ht beat. (Not Mystic ~Mystic's dad)
This is how an undemocratic globalist looks like when she has her mask ripped off: She never stopped being a remainer. The corruption that the EU works is clear for all of us to see. It was mistake, if an honest one, for the brexiteers to compromise and allow her to become PM.

Shove her into the same shameful obscurity where Blair sits.

We need a PM who can stand up to the EU - not this pathetic Theresa Chamberlain!
Honey Badger

The British people wanted a PM who voted to leave doing the negotiations in the first place. The fact there is no law to prevent a PM being in charge who voted against the public's decision is really stupid.

My god i feel like shooting her my self she's so thick, Thank God she stands no chance of getting through parliament, what crap comes out of her mouth, she's making us stuck to the EU through the back door. If the Tories don't get rid of her they won't see power again for a generation or more because they are letting her get away with it so they now go down with the sinking ship. No deal because the EU won't give us any deal that allows us grow from and do other trade deals so she's full of it

Not much balance in these comments. Does no-one agree with the Bloomberg guy who said, [paraphrased] "Brexit was always going to be a compromise because European membership has upsides as well as downsides."?

Brussels have shut the negotiations door. Handed people there copy.s no more negotiations. I don't know what the back stop is. That she's talking about. I want to have faith in her but heard deep down she's a remainer. Brussels headlines once said "out was out" why wud anyone take that deal surely we shud just stay in if that was the case. Then wat do we look like. Ohhhh were getting bullied into there one deal there throwing us. Please Mrs May I hear you have a Brexit Secretary job up for grabs I don't think it wud be a bad thing having a member of public knowing wat you know and aren't telling us. Coz if you take the deal theres more to this than meets the eye.

What is right and correct and honourable is to be a servant to the British peoples and honour their direction to leave the European Union. Its time to step aside and let a real servant do the right correct and honourable thing if you are unwilling to do it yourself.

This should have been a resignation or at worse a people’s vote. It seems she called this just to prove how disgusting and dictatorial she is? There was literally no point. If she is unwilling to change she should hide herself in a safe place and ignore everyone. This ‘defiance’ shows how out of touch she is with the public feeling. Stand down bitch.
Ray Davison

I have no respect , or belief in this woman she should hang her head in shame , but the comments on here of physical violence and abuse about her personally are out of line . No one likes her less than me at this time but personal attacks are irrelevant
Whatever people think of Theresa May she can stand up for herself when she is surrounded by mp's from both parties who are against her. Even Reese Mogg said during a sky news interview that she had a "strong sense of public duty".
