Conservative MP and former government minister Nick Boles, who during the referendum backed remaining in the European Union and now wants to stay in the single market on an interim basis while negotiating a "Better Brexit" free trade deal, said he didn't think May had enough support for her proposals.

In a video statement, GMB General Secretary Tim Roache says the union's members in manufacturing, retail and other sectors face uncertainty because the British government has yet to negotiate a deal with the EU.

It came as Mrs May faced growing opposition on Tory benches to the compromise deal agreed by the Cabinet at her country residence in July, with Brexiteers warning it will be voted down if it comes before the House of Commons.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, told German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that the bloc has "a coherent market for goods, services, capital and people - our own ecosystem that has grown over decades".

That's according to The Sunday Times and The Mail on Sunday, which both carried reports claiming that Boris Johnson, the former foreign secretary, and Sir Lynton Crosby are on manoeuvres.

One of Britain's biggest trade unions has backed calls for British people to have a vote on the final Brexit deal.

"In my view, the Chequers proposal - it's not a deal, we shouldn't call it the Chequers deal, it's the Chequers proposal - is actually nearly worse than being in".

Mr Davis, who resigned in protest over the Chequers plan after two years as Mrs May's chief negotiator, told the BBC the proposal was "almost worse than being in" the European Union, and that Mrs May could use "national interest" as a caveat to justify further concessions.

"What we need at this time is serious leadership with a serious plan and that's exactly what the country has with this prime minister and this Brexit plan", he said. "Businesses that don't take these steps risk quickly being overtaken by events and losing their competitive advantage", she said.

In his article, Johnson said that the main problem with Brexit was "not that we have failed, but that we have not even tried".

The U.S. intends the new deal to completely replace the current NAFTA, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. United States officials say the negotiations will continue next week in an effort to reach an agreement.

Speaking earlier yesterday, Green told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "High-stakes rhetoric, use of words like "surrender" and "white flag" and "treachery" and so on, that some newspapers have used, are absolutely what we don't need in the current circumstance".

"British people can rest assured, that the United Kingdom will be ready for Brexit - deal or no deal - and prepared, whatever the outcome, so this country will go from strength to strength", he concluded.

"We have made significant progress, we are making significant progress every week. and a deal is within our sights", he said.

Danuta Hubner, head of the European parliament's constitutional affairs committee that will first handle the agreement, said the target to hold a vote would be a plenary session due March 11-14.

The plan envisages Britain leaving the single market but staying in a free trade area for goods and agri-foods through a customs deal and common rule-book with the EU.
