A sleuth of Tories including cabinet minister Philip Hammond have been hampering efforts to obtain trade deals for Britain from the European Union. As a result, there is a mounting risk that Britain will slip into a trading and political vaccuum when it leaves the European Union in under two years.

May is gambling on a big boost from the elections to help the UK make a success of Brexit.

An opponent of Brexit, former Chancellor George Osborne today said he would stand down as an MP in the early elections to take up a position as Standard editor.
