Theresa May has come under some pressure these last few weeks over her plan for Britain’s post Brexit trade relationship. Both wings of her party have aggressively pitched their preferred version. Today it’s crunch time as the Cabinet head to Chequers to thrash out a position.
But has the most convincing argument for the Brexiteer side only just aired? With rumours circling that May is to pitch a soft Brexit, Nigel Farage has threatened a comeback. The former Ukip leader has warned that he will have ‘no choice’ but to return to frontline politics if Brexit is delayed past March 2019.

Will the threat of a Brexit betrayal party be enough to sway Theresa May against a soft Brexit?
