UK Prime Minister Theresa May has promised Brexit supporters she would resign if the House of Commons approves the agreement with Brussels on the conditions for the UK withdrawal from the EU, Sky News reported

UK broadcaster Robert Peston said he had received information that May had reported information about her readiness to leave her post if the transaction was approved by leading representatives of the Euro-skeptics camp in the Tory parliamentary faction, including three former Brexit cabinet ministers - Boris Johnson, David Davis and Dominic Raab.

According to Peston, even the possible support of the agreement by the supporters of Rees-Mogg, united in the so-called European Research Group (ERG) and 10 deputies from the Allied Democratic Unionist Party for Tory, still does not provide the prime minister with sufficient support for the passage of the transaction in parliament, Brexit issues Steve Baker and other Puritan MPs from Tory in any case oppose the agreement.
