However Mrs May rejected claims from MPs that a "no-deal" outcome was becoming more likely following the row over her Brexit plans this week.

Junior Defense Minister Guto Bebb, who'd supported May's initial plan, objected to the new plan and also resigned.

Ms Soubry said she did not believe Mrs May was in charge any more.

The measure infuriated pro-EU lawmakers and practically killed off the EU's proposed solution for avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland.

"Brexit continues to mean Brexit", May said to cheers from her Conservative supporters.

British voters in a June 2016 referendum chose to leave the European Union, and on Tuesday Britain's official Brexit campaign, Vote Leave, was fined and reported to the police for breaking spending rules - another issue boosting calls for a second vote.

May added amendments that have been controversial, as the British government initially opposed them, but reversed course.

However he denounced the plan agreed at Chequers and set out in the PM's white paper last week as a "Brexit in name only" which would leave the United Kingdom in a state of "vassalage".

"We dithered and we burned through our negotiating capital", he told MPs.

An unconvincing election victory and lingering Brexit anxieties have been exacerbated by Michael Fallon's recent Cabinet resignation; while Priti Patel and Boris Johnson have also made serious mistakes.

His resignation followed a Cabinet summit at which ministers agreed to follow May's plan to pursue soft form of Brexit which would keep the United Kingdom aligned with European Union regulations on key issues.

There was an awkward moment for him during PMQs, when Tory colleague Keith Simpson referenced the recent visit of US President Donald Trump.

The Uxbridge MP made a point of praising "her courage and her resilience" and indicated that he thought she could lead the United Kingdom to a successful Brexit if she was willing to change tack.
