TWhere members of the government resign, and a Cabinet minister is considering stopping for Brexit this weekend, as Theresa May's government seems to be falling apart before the most important voices of a generation.

Government whips have asked Conservative MPs until noon Sunday afternoon to outline how they will vote on the Mayx Brexit deal, in a desperate attempt to assess the extent of a rebellion that threatens to overthrow their government.

Will Quince MP, a member of the ministerial defense ministerial team, announces that he is giving up his government role and saying he wants "to urge the Prime Minister to return to the European Union and find another way".
