  • PM May stays in charge as challenge to premiership collapses

Britain's pound rose nearly 1 percent on Monday, rebounding from its biggest weekly drop in a year, after British Prime Minister Theresa May said she would resist challenges to her leadership.

The Prime Minister raised the prospect of a major revamp of her top team over the weekend, as she tries to reassert her authority after the Tory conference horrorshow.

"The government made clear, that we have no intention of revoking that, we will be delivering on the vote of the British people", May said, answering a question about the possible halting of implementation of Article 50.

Mr Johnson, seen as a potential successor to Mrs May, has said that Conservative lawmakers pushing to unseat her were "nutters".

'I do not know who these people are.

In a Whatsapp message to a group of Conservative MPs, Johnson said that he didn't know who kept leaking this information to the press and asked them to stop doing so on his behalf. If you were a Brexiteer you would be anxious [if Mr Johnson was demoted].

"I heartily disagree with the sense, tone and spirit of what they are quoted as saying".

The Tories remain split between Hammond's supporters and allies of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

The fifth and final round of Brexit negotiations before the crucial European Council summit starts in Brussels this morning, with expectations low a breakthrough can be made in time for EU leaders to agree to allow talks to move on to a new EU-UK trade deal.

'I never discuss whether reshuffles are or are not taking place, ' he said.

May's ill-fated speech. Although to muddy the waters further, the Foreign Secretary issued a plea for warring party members to unite behind the Prime Minister in this morning's Sunday Telegraph.

But she insisted she never considered abandoning the address because she is "not someone who gives up".

Speaking to the BBC, Brexit minister Dominic Raab said preparations for a no deal were "well under way", adding that while the United Kingdom had to "strive for the very best outcome" from Brexit negotiations, it must also "prepare for all eventualities".
