Leading Brexit supporter denies plot to topple Theresa May

LONDON (AP) — A leading Brexit-supporting lawmaker insists rebels aren’t about to topple Prime Minister Theresa May, despite strong opposition to her plan for taking Britain out of the European Union.

A faction of May’s Conservative Party opposes her proposal to keep the U.K. aligned to EU rules after Brexit. They say that will keep Britain tied to the bloc and unable to strike new trade deals around the world.

Several dozen rebel lawmakers are growing restive and have discussed attempting to replace May with a strongly pro-Brexit politician such as former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, a fierce critic of May’s Brexit blueprint.

But pro-Brexit Environment Secretary Michael Gove said Wednesday that speculation about a leadership challenge was just “loose talk.”

He said May was doing a “great job at the moment.”
