VOW: PM Theresa May pledged Tory rebels won’t stop her delivering the Brexit Brits want

She said: “I will not be derailed from my duty to deliver your democratic decision.”

And she vowed to “take back control of our borders, money and laws”.

Mrs May reached a compromise over her determination to ensure that the date of our departure – March 29, 2019 – is written into law.

But she was beaten over an Opposition bid to give MPs a “meaningful vote” in Parliament on Brexit.

AGAINST HARD BREXIT: Chancellor Philip Hammond is in favour of a ‘soft’ Brexit

She also faces a struggle with Chancellor Philip Hammond who is in favour of a “soft” Brexit that would see the UK sticking to Brussels rules.

Ex-Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith said: “The Chancellor’s comments are not Government policy, which he should stick to.”

But EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier has said the bloc will not create a special deal for Britain.

He said: “They have to realise there won’t be any cherry picking.
