MPs have rallied against Theresa May’s Brexit proposals, saying it will lead to a Corbyn government and amounts to nothing more than ‘half’ leaving the European Union.
Connor Burns, Iain Duncan Smith and Marcus Fysh have all critiqued the Chequers plans.
Burns thinks the government has approached the Leave vote as a disaster instead of an ‘amazing opportunity’.
The biggest problem we have faced since the referendum is that Government have approached the Leave vote as some disaster that needs to be mitigated against not as an amazing opportunity that should be embraced. That’s how we have ended up where we are now. Sad.

IDS says he ‘voted to leave, not half leave’, according to reports.

And Marcus Fysh thinks it will lead to Jeremy Corbyn coming to power.
Downing Street will give us Corbyn unless they change and change now. https://t.co/0vF7yP3vFN

How much longer can May survive without a leadership challenge? If Tory MPs feel this way about the government’s approach, imagine what the public think. This is madness.
