UK leader May, Cabinet to chart EU exit at Chequers retreat

However, more than three quarters of her cabinet actively campaigned for the United Kingdom to stay in the European Union - and there are already suggestions of a serious split at the top of the Government over the issue of whether Britain should stay in the single market. It had been suggested - by Tony Blair, and Owen Smith, the Labour leadership candidate, among others - that Remain-supporting MPs could use a vote to stop Brexit.

A source in her Downing Street office said the Daily Telegraph report was speculation but added that May was "committed to delivering on the verdict the public gave" in the June referendum, when 52 percent voted for Britain to leave the EU. This push has come from the remain camp who can't get over the fact that they lost the vote.

There will be no vote in the British Parliament and Prime Minister Theresa May is learned to be triggering the Brexit process.

But it also takes place after former cabinet secretary Gus O'Donnell said Brexit is not inevitable.

He was later taken to hospital with an ankle injury and will certainly be a doubt for the Italian Grand Prix in seven days' time. On lap 10 of 44, the race was halted as the red flag came out, because the barrier Magnussen crashed into needed repairing.

Mr Smith last week set out plans to block Article 50 in Parliament. However, bookmakers believe that there is a one in eight chance of a second Brexit referendum before the end of 2020. "I hope Jeremy will support me in such a move".

"Theresa May is clearly running scared from parliamentary scrutiny of her Brexit negotiations", he said.

"Parliament can not be sidelined from the greatest constitutional change our country has debated in 40 years".

Meanwhile, lawyers representing "a group of anonymous clients" have mounted a legal challenge to force the parliamentary vote.

The government had in recent months also encroached on the town's farmlands - the only source of food for the local population. There was no immediate comment from the Syria Democratic Forces, the US -backed Kurdish-affiliated forces.

The case, which will be heard in the High Court in London in October, argues that Article 50 can not be invoked until the European Communities Act of 1972 is repealed.

"The logic of saying the prime minister can trigger article 50 without first setting out to parliament the terms and basis upon which her government seeks to negotiate - indeed, without even indicating the red lines she will seek to protect - would be to diminish parliament and assume the arrogant powers of a Tudor monarch", he said.

Bill Cash, a Conservative MP and leading Brexit campaigner, welcomed the news about the legal advice reportedly given to May.

It came as a senior Czech official warned Britain that unless it triggers Article 50 soon "the goodwill that still exists will start to disappear".
