Tory Revolt?

Theresa May has been accused of tyranny and lack of respect for democracy by some of her own MPs over the government’s refusal to give parliament a say on the terms of leaving the EU.

A string of Conservatives were critical of the government’s Brexit strategy in a House of Commons debate on Monday, with some asking for more details about the government’s negotiating plan and others calling for a greater say on the way the UK will leave the EU.

The Guardian understands a group of several Tory MPs is even thinking of joining a legal suit due to be heard this week, which will challenge the government’s right to start taking the UK out of the EU without the consent of MPs.
