I pray for her - Theresa May draws unlikely support from Labour MP

On a day when two Cabinet ministers quit and the leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg submitted a letter of no confidence in Mrs May, David Drew said Mrs May deserved to be treated as "a human being".

He told Premier: "I think she's wrong [on the draft Brexit deal] and I think that she's led herself up the garden path but I do pray that, as an individual, people are respectful to her.

"It's going to be a terribly difficult time. I mean, some quite hurtful things were said to her today; I have to say, mainly from her own side."

The representative for Stroud echoed party colleagues in saying the proposals had "no chance" of gaining the support of MPs in the event of a House of Commons vote.
