Brexit: Cabinet to meet amid pressure on May

British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to update ministers on her Brexit strategy when she chairs a meeting of her cabinet this morning.

It comes after a weekend of speculation about her leadership and claims of a plot to oust her - something senior ministers have denied.

There have been suggestions that naming a date for her departure as PM could boost support for her Brexit deal.

But Downing Street has refused to be drawn on Mrs May's future.

The Sun newspaper has used its front page to urge Mrs May to set a date for her resignation to win over reluctant Tories and the Democratic Unionist Party in order to bolster the chances of her withdrawal agreement passing in a third vote.

Her deal has been overwhelmingly rejected in the Commons twice، and it remains unclear whether she will bring it back a third time this week after she wrote to MPs saying she would only do so if there was "sufficient support".

The cabinet meeting later follows intense speculation over the weekend about Mrs May's premiership following a week in which she was forced to ask the EU for an extension to Article 50، and criticised for blaming the delay to Brexit on MPs.
