REMAINER MPs were challenged today on whether they would continue to inflict humiliating defeats against the government’s Brexit approach even if this ultimately toppled Theresa May as Prime Minister and plunged UK further into political uncertainty.

Jo Coburn grilled Tory rebel MP Bob Neil on whether the contingent of Conservative Remainers in the House of Commons would push the customs union until the Government collapsed.

A symbolic vote on retaining membership of the customs union, which goes against Theresa May’s red lines, is set to take place in the Commons this Thursday.

The vote is expected to inflict yet another humiliating defeat against Mrs May’s Government, after a heavy defeat for the government in the Lords last week.

However, Theresa May may dare her own MPs to vote against her on Brexit and potentially bring down the Government and topple her leadership.

Top Brexiteers have urged Mrs May to turn this Remainer attempt to keep the UK in a customs union into an vote of confidence in the Government and put her own job on the line.

If Mrs May was to lose such a vote, there would be serious questions raised about whether she could remain as leader of the country.

Jo Coburn asked Tory MP Bob Neil: “Are you prepared to push this issue – that it might cause the collapse of the government?”

Mr Neil told BBC’s Daily Politics: “First of all we need a bit of context. A lot of this sabre-rattling and these noises off are deliberately trying to stoke up pressure.

“We shouldn’t give the credit to them that the extreme Brexit press have done.

“You won’t see any of my friends who take my view writing letters against the Prime Minister. I support her and I have confidence in her.
