The news comes as the BBC reported on Wednesday that pro-Brexit Tories were increasingly confident that they could launch a no confidence vote in the prime minister.

Conservative lawmakers have launched a vote of no confidence in Theresa May’s leadership as chairman of the party’s so-called 1922 committee, Graham Brady, said that the threshold for the vote has been exceeded.

After UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s announcement, President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said there was “no room” for any renegotiation of the Brexit deal, although further clarifications were still possible.
