UK Times: “‘Many’ Tory MPs to quit if it comes to no‑deal Brexit”

The Times reports further woes for UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson

  • Johnson is facing a new cabinet rebellion over a no-deal Brexit 
  • there are mounting concerns in Downing Street of further resignations
  • A group of five ministers – Nicky Morgan, Julian Smith, Robert Buckland, Matt Hancock and Geoffrey Cox – are on a “resignation watch list”
  • It came after a “fractious” cabinet meeting in which ministers warned Mr Johnson about the “grave” risk of the return of direct rule in Northern Ireland
  • One cabinet minister told The Times: “Cabinet will set the strategy, not unelected officials. If this is an attempt to do that then it will fail. We are not a cabinet of sock puppets and nodding dogs.”

GBP is little changed.
