    Brexit plan: 80 Tory MPs will reject Chequers deal, says ex-minister.

    As many as 80 Conservative MPs are prepared to vote against the prime minister's Chequers plan, a former Brexit minister has warned.

    Steve Baker, who quit over the deal, said the level of opposition means Theresa May faces a "massive problem" at this month's party's conference.

    He told the Press Association the party will suffer a "catastrophic split" if Mrs May sticks with the Chequers deal.

    The cabinet backed the plan when it met at the PM's country residence in July.

    Well, doesn't this sound very Tory ?

    No party can stab a leader in the back better or more often than the Tories can.

    Remember what happened to Thatcher.

    Maybe Theresa May is going to go the same way ?

    Just about right for the Tories.

    I think that the deal made at Chequers is now dead in the water.

    We shall see very soon.

    Theresa May's enemies in the Tory Party are gathering in quite large numbers now.

    I think that the final outcome of the Brexit negotiations is either going to strengthen her support or it is going to force her out of the PM's job.

    Brexit: Carney warns no-deal could see house prices plunge.

    I saw this on the BBC here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45516678

    As far as I am concerned, if this does happen then first-time-buyers like me should be able to put a deposit together more easily.

    I guess, in things like this it is "swings and roundabouts".
