Yesterday May said: “I am taking action to break the logjam: I am offering to sit down with the leader of the opposition and to try to agree a plan that we would both stick to, to ensure that we leave the European Union.”

In response to May’s decision Nigel Adams resigned as a whip and a junior minister for Wales because he is opposed to reaching a deal with Jeremy Corbyn.

In his resignation letter, he says he thinks that May has made a “grave error.”

He says: “I and many others agreed with your previous position that no deal is better than a bad deal.

“It now seems that you and your cabinet have decided that a deal – cooked up with a Marxist who has never once in his political life put British interests first – is better than no deal.

“I profoundly disagree with this approach and I have therefore decided that I must reluctantly tender my resignation.”
