British Prime Minister Theresa May will face ministers demanding a “Plan B” on Brexit at a Cabinet meeting Monday, the Telegraph reported.
“Everybody will want something that can be delivered,” the paper reported, quoting a “source.”
“We have to have a ‘Plan B’ now — ‘Plan A’ is out of the window.”
There is a sense in London that this is a critical moment for some ministers, who could consider resigning if demands for an alternative to May’s Chequers plan are not met.
“Monday is the crunch point,” one individual told the Telegraph. “That’s when every Cabinet minister will have to look again and reassess like Boris [Johnson] and David Davis did.” Johnson and Davis resigned from their Cabinet roles after May unveiled her Brexit plan.
A summit in Salzburg that was meant to bring the U.K. and EU closer to a deal ended in frustration for both sides.
May on Friday demanded more “respect,” vowing not to accept a deal that would “break up my country.”
European Council President Donald Tusk said at the summit that May’s plan “will not work.”
According to the Telegraph report, ministers are also expected to push May to replace her key EU advisers, including Olly Robbins, her closest aide on Brexit.
