Brexit backing MPs call on May to appoint ‘no deal’ minister amid EU squabble

MINISTERS have urged Theresa May to appoint a “no deal” Secretary of State to call the EU’s bluff amid fraught negotiations.

Theresa May and fellow Conservatives are under fire to make compromises in EU negotiations to secure a Brexit deal.Brussels officials have said that they have little faith in Mrs May’s ability to secure a final deal.

Now Brexiteer ministers are believed to be pushing for a ‘no deal’ minister to be assigned to plot the nation’s course if the EU refuse to play ball.

One pro-Brexit minister warned that too many concessions could see “the bottom fall out of the bucket and the Government risking collapse.”
