The four rebel Labour MPs who rescued Theresa May's government

David Davis, who resigned last week as Brexit Secretary in protest at her negotiating stance, challenged her to publish Whitehall work on a potential free trade deal based on those already secured by the EU.
In a subsequent letter, he told May that Britain was "truly headed for the status of [a] colony" and that the "dream" of Brexit "is dying".
In dramatic scenes in the House of Commons, ministers made a last-ditch effort to stave off defeat by offering to introduce amendments in the House of Lords which would deal with "the essence" of rebel Tories' concerns over future customs arrangements.
On Monday, May infuriated lawmakers who wanted to keep the closest possible ties with the European Union when she chose to accept a number of demands by hardline pro-Brexit members. "It's time we shared their confidence".
"We have time, we have changed tack once and we can change again", he said.
"This government is in grave danger of not just losing the plot but losing a considerable amount of support from the people of this country unless we get Brexit right", she said.
The Uxbridge MP made a point of praising "her courage and her resilience" and indicated that he thought she could lead the United Kingdom to a successful Brexit if she was willing to change tack. "Worst of all we allowed the question of the Northern Ireland border to dominate the debate".
"In the 18 months that have followed... a fog of self-doubt has descended", he said, and criticised the government for not presenting the Lancaster House vision to Brussels.
"Not the democratic disaster of ongoing harmonisation with no way out and no say for the UK". "We should not and need not be stampeded by anyone".
"We can't rely on anything", said Warren East, CEO of United Kingdom engine maker Rolls Royce, who said his firm could start stockpiling parts soon if it looked like Britain was heading towards a disorderly exit from the EU.
"My job as Prime Minister is to deliver for them, but also I've got to be hard-headed and practical about this and do it in a way that ensures we get the best interests for the United Kingdom".
"That is the prize that is still attainable".
Ahead of a crucial week in Parliament, the Prime Minister acknowledged feelings in the party were running high, but said her plan offered a "hard-headed and practical" way forward. Near miss on customs union amendment. "The hon lady ain't no Margaret Thatcher", he said.
May asked Corbyn to withdraw what she said was an unfair intimation that it was the ministers themselves who had been referred to police, rather than Vote Leave as an organisation.
The hardliner amendments of several dozen MPs from the European Research Group led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, basically kill off all of May's proposals in the white paper that meant to create workable solutions for both the United Kingdom and the EU.
The Plaid Cymru group in Westminster has worked, and will continue to work very effectively with sensible politicians from across all parties to defeat this hard-Brexit.
An early recess might not stop a potentially stinging resignation statement from Boris Johnson.
Johnson, figurehead of the Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, urged May to change her Brexit strategy in a scathing assessment of the government's handling of the negotiations.
Camilla Parker Bowles, the current wife of Prince Charles, the Queen's eldest son, is expected to appear in the upcoming season. Season 3 will see a bit of a shakeup as the show recasts the major players in order to tackle the queen's later years.
The fresh indictments prompted a number of US senators, all but one Democrats, to request Trump cancel his summit with Putin. In Montana this month, Trump scoffed at the idea Putin was an enemy dedicated to zero-sum combat with the United States.
Brennan said, "Because clearly he's concerned and, I think, fearful about what might be exposed in that investigation". Without being prompted on the topic of collusion, he also added: "There was no collusion at all".
That'd be Captain Marvel , and following on its heels will be Avengers 4 , the film that doesn't yet have a formal name. Avengers: Infinity War will be released on Digital HD on July 31st, and later on Blu-ray and DVD on August 14th.
Meanwhile, although the Raptors and Spurs are believed to be in deep negotiations, a potential deal may have reached a roadblock. Leonard, who's arguably a top three player in the league when healthy, certainly would be able to fill that role next to James.
But Trump stopped short of saying that if the intelligence services were correct in their assessment, then Putin must be lying. But Trump stopped short of alleging Putin was dishonest and said he did not "want to get into whether or not he's lying".
As Trump departs the U.K., Prime Minister Theresa May surprised many by stating that the president encouraged her to sue the EU. Putin and Trump held their first talks on the sidelines of the Group of Twenty summit in Germany's Hamburg in July 2017.
I would like to meet these players face to face and talk to them and understand what will be best for everyone. Hazard told reporters: "After six wonderful years at Chelsea it might be time to discover something different.
Alisson , 25, is keen to make the move to Merseyside but the Italian side are holding out for closer to £67m. Chelsea could launch a bid to rival Liverpool for the signature of Alisson in the coming days.
Amazon was back up and running as usual Tuesday morning on the second day of the company's Prime Day (and a half) sales event. Amazon rarely has trouble handling high traffic volumes and its security is unlikely to be breached by a hacker, he said.
