Boris Johnson Facing Tory Backlash Over Law-Breaking Brexit Plan
There are also growing signs of a civil service walkout over his plan to break international law and unpick his own exit deal.
The prime minister is trying to unpick parts of the withdrawal agreement (WA) he negotiated last year to give UK ministers key powers to decide when EU rules apply to Northern Ireland.
May said the plans would leave the UK less “trusted” around the world while foreign affairs committee chair Tom Tugendhat said the country’s “entire economy” depends on UK adherence to international law.
The PM was also rocked by the resignations of civil servants in key government legal positions.
