‘Irate’ Michael Gove rips up PM’s customs plan as Brexit pressure grows

A DEEP new Cabinet split has opened up over Theresa’s May new Brexit compromises – as it also emerged Michael Gove physically tore up her customs plan.

The irate Environment Secretary stunned officials by ripping a document he disliked in two at a meeting this week.

The dramatic scene came as tensions around the PM’s top table spiral again ahead of a showdown at Chequers where Britain’s demands for a future EU relationship will finally be thrashed out next Friday.

Downing Street are desperate to make big new offers to the EU in a bid to restart stalled Brexit talks.

With the clock ticking down fast, No10 are desperate not to see Mrs May boxed into having to walk out of talks if her new blueprint is turned down.

But in a major negotiating strategy clash, Brexiteer ministers instead insist the PM wait for an “inevitable” last minute climb down by EU leaders themselves in October, when panic about no deal sets in.
