Brexit: Removing Theresa May won't help - Hammond

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond says ousting Theresa May won’t help the United Kingdom (UK) amid reports the prime minister is facing an open revolt over her withdrawal deal with the European Union (EU).

An estimated 1 million anti-Brexit protesters rallied in London on Saturday to demand a second referendum on the UK's withdrawal from the EU.

More than 4.18 million people have signed an online petition urging the government to cancel Brexit, the most names ever collected in a public campaign. The government hopes to put May’s deal to Parliament again next week Johnson, Raab, Rees-Mogg invited to Chequers, Times says.

Prominent Brexiteers Boris Johnson, Dominic Raab and Jacob Rees-Mogg are among a number of UK politicians on an invite list to go to Theresa May’s Chequers retreat Sunday, Times journalist Sam Coates says on Twitter, without saying how he got the information.

Bill Cash, a veteran Tory member of Parliament who was one of the European Research Group’s panel of legal experts that rejected May’s deal earlier this month, says the prime minister could indeed quit.

"I do think the resignation of the prime minister is very much on the cards," Cash said on Sky News on Sunday.

"The situation is at her door."
