Senior UK ministers threaten resignation over May's Brexit plans - Sunday Times

LONDON, March 30 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May faces the risk of resignations from senior ministers on both sides of Britain’s Brexit divide, depending on what course she takes next week, the Sunday Times newspaper reported.

At least six pro-European Union members of her cabinet of senior ministers will resign if she heads for a no-deal Brexit, while Brexit-supporting ministers would resign if she backed a customs union with the EU or sought a delay to Brexit.

“Theresa May will be warned today that her government faces total collapse unless she passes her Brexit deal - as the prime minister’s aides were at loggerheads over whether to accept a soft Brexit or call a general election this week,” the newspaper said.
