With little hope of Theresa May’s Brexit deal being voted through Parliament, it may not be a surprise to hear most MP’s are critical of her.

In fact, some 70% of all MPs believe the Prime Minister has done a poor job of negotiating Brexit, putting her chances of securing the deal at huge risk.

The Ipsos MORI survey also found that more Tory MPs think Mrs May has done a bad (47%) than a good job (34%).

The figures come after the PM survived a leadership challenge, with Tory MPs generally rallying behind her after her win.

But Mrs May’s problems continue as Jeremy Corbyn demanded she call a General Election if her Brexit deal is defeated by MPs next week.

The Labour leader also repeatedly pushed Mrs May to rule out a no-deal Brexit as Europe dominated their exchanges at todays Prime Minister’s Questions.

The PM defended her Government’s efforts to prepare for the prospect of the UK leaving the EU without a deal and dismissed holding a General Election.

She also attempted to ease concerns over Northern Ireland by insisting the Commons will get a vote on whether to extend the Brexit transition period or trigger the backstop if no trade deal is concluded by the end of 2020.

Mr Corbyn described this proposal as ‘window dressing’ and said MPs want to see ‘clear legal changes’ to the Withdrawal Agreement.

He went on to accuse Mrs May of ‘recklessly wasting time’ and ‘holding the country to ransom with the threat of a no deal’.
