Crunch Time for UK PM May as She Seeks Unity on Brexit Plan

Crunch Time for UK PM May as She Seeks Unity on Brexit Plan

British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing resistance from hard-core Brexit backers in her Conservative government as she gathers her fractious Cabinet to hammer out a plan for future trade with the European Union.

The 30-strong Cabinet is being sequestered Friday inside the prime minister's Chequers country retreat — without their phones — to discuss a compromise plan that May hopes will unite the government, and be accepted by the bloc.

It's a tall order.

With just nine months to go until the U.K. leaves the bloc, May says the government has "a great opportunity — and a duty" to agree on a plan.

But pro-Brexit ministers including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson have doubts about her proposal, which would see Britain stick closely to EU rules for trade in goods.
