On Monday, he was among those supporting amendments to a customs bill created to toughen the Chequers deal and reduce May's scope to make concessions when she negotiates with the European Union.

"She should do the right thing and trigger a by-election where she can, if she wishes, take her chances against a real Labour candidate".

But the biggest domestic problems for May lie in Parliament, where her Chequers Brexit proposal has enraged her hard-liners, led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, a right-wing Conservative lawmaker.
