If the cabinet agrees to Theresa May's Chequers Brexit In Name Only proposal, then it will be the first step towards a delighted EU taking even firmer control of the reins connected to the heavy yoke around the neck of the UK.

PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW

The EU is already gloating that, by signing up to this rotten Chequers Brexit In Name Only (BRINO) deal, the bloc will keep all the controls over UK rules and regulations.

This comes from a leaked diplomatic note after a meeting between EU27 diplomats and EU Commission Eurocrats seen by The Times, where it says:

"They must align their rules but the EU will retain all the controls. They apply the same rules. UK wants a lot more from future relationship, so EU retains its leverage."

And the Independent reports something it calls 'political dynamite':

"The leaked written account of the meeting seen by the newspaper also suggests that Britain “would have to swallow a link between access to products and fisheries in future agreements” for the future relationship."

The Chairman of the Tory eurosceptic European Research Group, or ERG, Jacob Rees-Mogg, said:

"She hasn’t so much struck a deal as surrendered to Brussels and given in to everything they want and tried to frustrate Brexit that it’s not so much a vassal state anymore as a slave state."

And the deputy chair of the ERG, Mark Francois, says that even if this deal does get through cabinet it won't get through parliament as, not only are the bulk of the Labour party likely to vote it down, but so will the ERG members and the DUP.

So, cabinet needs to listen and resign now to avoid their own future total political oblivion.

Here's what some of the other Brexiteers have been saying:

Boris Johnson Tweeted:

"Sabine Weyand in The Times clear: if agreed, the CU backstop will not be temporary but the minimum basis for our future trading relationship, with high alignment and 'EU control' – this means super-canada impossible. Cabinet must live up to its responsibilities & stop this deal."

Tory Brexiteer MP, Andrea Jenkyns Tweeted:

"It's been two and a half years since we voted to leave the EU and quite frankly the government has made a mess of this. If the PM comes back with a Chequers-type of deal that keeps us in the customs union, it will be an abomination of Brexit and she will be betraying the British people."

And Nigel Farage speaking on Good Morning Britain said to the Tories:

"For goodness sake get rid of not just the worst Prime Minister I've ever seen, but perhaps the most dishonest one as well. Get rid of her!"

Patrick O'Flynn Tweeted:

"I am told – by someone with a track record for calling things right – that there will be 48 letters triggering a vote of no confidence in May by the weekend. As you know, I've been sceptical of Tory Brexiteer sabre-rattling. But a good chance that it is different this time."

There is also a rumour that Mrs May will resign if the cabinet rejects her deal.

It now all hinges on the cabinet meeting at 2PM today where the BBC says that ministers will be told to back it as this is as good as it gets. Could be a lengthy affair.

Will we see fireworks from ministers this afternoon? Or are they all just damp squibs?
