Theresa May’s threat to hurl Britain into a No Deal Brexit was brutally punctured today by one of her biggest allies.

For more than two years the Prime Minister has warned the EU “no deal is better than a bad deal” – despite fears it could cause food shortages and civil unrest.

Now she has turned No Deal into a threat against Labour – warning if they don’t accept her version of Brexit, No Deal is inevitable.

But today Amber Rudd directly contradicted that, just days after returned to Mrs May’s Cabinet as Work and Pensions Secretary.

“It is my view that Parliament, the House of Commons, will stop No Deal,” she told the BBC.

“There isn’t a majority in the House of Commons to allow that to take place.”
