The latest minister to quit British Prime Minister Theresa May's government because of Brexit says the prime minister's divorce deal with the bloc would leave Britain outnumbered and outmaneuvered in future negotiations.
Sam Gyimah, the universities and science minister, has resigned in protest at the Government's "naive" Brexit plan, saying that any deal we strike with Brussels will be "EU first".
The two-part agreement includes the legally binding terms of the U.K.'s departure and an ambitious but vague declaration about future relations between the two sides.
Speaking to a parliamentary committee, May was asked several times whether she would personally allow a disorderly Brexit to happen if - as looks increasingly likely - MPs vote down the deal she has struck with the EU.
Parliament will begin five days of debate next Tuesday, with the final vote due to be held on Dec 11.
The only group which will not sign the motion is the Scottish Conservatives. Since then, it has been more and more hard to agree on bigger political issues. His resignation came after May said Britain was abandoning efforts to retain full access to the EU's Galileo satellite navigation system after Brexit.
He added: "This format would also not suitably represent either the support for Remain across the whole of the United Kingdom, or the growing public and political support - including from the SNP, the Greens, the Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and an increasing number of members of both the Labour Party and the Conservatives - for a second referendum in which the option of remaining in the European Union could be put to the people".

May said, given the EU's decision "to bar the United Kingdom from being fully involved in developing all aspects of Galileo, it is only right that we find alternatives".
"If this deal is rejected in the Commons, we are left with.an alternative: no deal or no Brexit at all".
The Labour party and numerous Prime Minister's own MPs have also signalled their oppposition to the agreement. "That is actually a betrayal of the British people".
She added: "I think what we have seen revealed in numerous Labour Party's comments is that what they actually want is a general election, and that means they are not acting in the national interest, they are putting their narrow party interests first".
"The prime minister has been changing the public mood, if you look at what's been happening in polling there's clearly a shift there", Fox said.
"Does the deal deliver 100 percent of what I wanted? No". "In politics, as in life, you can't always get everything that you want".
That could take the form of not leaving the European Union at all, or leaving with no deal - a state of affairs enthusiastically advocated by long-time Brexit campaigners like Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg as a true Brexit which would leave Britain able to pursue its own destiny - but there would be no renegotiation.
