Theresa May’s customs partnership fudge could spark a cabinet rebellion and lead to another election, says Westmonster’s Michael Heaver.
The PM seems to think people will simply accept a customs partnership on the basis that it’s not called ‘a customs union’, but news broke today that between 12 and 15 cabinet ministers are happy to vote down May’s proposals.

Boris Johnson has called it ‘crazy’ and Jacob Rees-Mogg thinks it’s ‘cretinous’, and it’s believed several Remain ministers just want the PM to do Brexit ‘properly’.
Heaver said: “Theresa May is in a quite vulnerable position. If Boris Johnson was to resign and Jacob Rees-Mogg turned his fire on the government then I think they’d be in big trouble. Can the government get their stated policy through parliament, because I’m not convinced?
“I think we could be heading for a general election.”
It comes after Theresa May issued a plea for people to support her and trust her to deliver Brexit…which sounded like a rallying cry to the electorate.
Who said politics was dull?!
