Is the cabinet now split over Brexit?

  Quickbeam 18:31 20 Jun 2017

Yesterday we heard Brexit secretary Davis stating that nothing much has changed in the governments Brexit plan (Brexit plan...?) as he started the opening negotiations.

Today we have Chancellor Hammond and the Governor of the Bank of England saying that business must come first at the expense of immigration and other EU access compromises, backed up by some big voices in the motor industry.

It looks like two distinct camps are setting out their plans (apparent Brexit plans) for the future. May, may not make it past Junes's heat at this rate of separation of views

Yours, as sceptical as ever, Mr Doom & Gloom (according to some) of Tunbridge Wells...

I think hammond either may be on the way out or is going to be the next PM.

The in fighting has started up again and has the tory party in turmoil. They really do need to get a grip on themselves.

Tomorrow is their big day and still do not have an agreement with the DUP. What a shambles. You might have expected this from Jeremy Corbyn a few years ago but you would not expect it from the tory party.

I was thinking that he is on the way out, and will be the next PM!

I would have expected it from Corbyn up until the last few weeks!

Of course if this legal challenge is upheld, JC will be the next PM...

Ah, but Michael Gove's return to the cabinet as enviroment minister might be Mrs May's force majeure!

What's the odds on May not lasting until September HB?

Looks like she is still going ahead with the queens speech then and it could take a year to get the legal Challenge to court.

Well we have had plenty to talk about leading up to the election now we may have something else to talk about for the next year or so. FE will be pleased.

Quickbeam, it's 13/8 (fav) that there will be another general election in 2017.

Is there really a DUP agreement almost ready? I get the impression that they have only agreed enough to pass a Queens speech, that could result in a full election within days if they fail to announce anything.
