He said: “The Supreme Court will decide what the law of the country is in this country as voted on by Parliament, that is the big thing that Theresa May has achieved…European law will not hold sway over British law.”Mr Hunt’s comments will be interpreted as a warning that if Mrs May is forced out of Downing Street it could trigger a general election that might be won by Jeremy Corbyn. The Conservatives believe Mr Corbyn would halt Brexit if he became Prime Minister. Jeremy Hunt has issued a stark warning to Tory rebels that Brexit will not happen if Theresa May is ousted as Prime Minister.The Health Secretary became the first member of the Cabinet to openly raise the prospect that Brexit might not happen when he appeared on ITV’s Peston on Sunday programme today.His comments come on the eve of a crucial meeting between Mrs May and Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission President, that could determine whether trade talks begin later this month.Mr Hunt said: “The choice we face now is not between this Brexit and that Brexit, if we don’t back Theresa May we will have no Brexit and she is doing an unbelievably challenging job amazingly well.”Mr Hunt was speaking after the Telegraph disclosed that senior Tories have warned Mrs May against a “compromise” on the role of the European Court of Justice that they say could mean European judges overseeing British trade disputes. Mr Coveney said Ireland was not looking for the “full detail” on the border solution in phase one of the talks, and told the programme: “What we are looking for though is the parameters within which we can be more confident that a solution can be found within phase two – and that is not an unreasonable ask.”We would like to see a solution here that solves the border issues, that involves all of the United Kingdom acting as one.”Mrs May is due to travel to Brussels on Monday for talks with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker in the hope of securing a declaration that “sufficient progress” has been made on divorce issues like the financial settlement and the Irish border. Officials from London, Dublin and Belfast are continuing to work on an elusive agreement over the future of the Irish border that threatens to delay the start of trade talks.

Mr Coveney, who was appointed the new Tanaiste in the Dail on Thursday, told BBC1’s The Andrew Marr Show Ireland wants a solution on the border that “involves all of the United Kingdom acting as one”.Asked whether the Irish government were prepared to use a “veto” over the Brexit talks, he said: “We certainly don’t want to be vetoing anything – I mean the Irish government, just like the British government, wants to be able to move the Brexit process on to phase two and we want to be able to provide the kind of certainty that many businesses are calling for in Britain and Ireland and indeed in other parts of the European Union.”So there is no desire I can tell you in Ireland to delay this process, but at the same time we have a responsibility as a Government to represent the interests on the island of Ireland – north and south – and let’s not forget that next year will be the 20th anniversary of the Good Friday agreement which is the basis for the peace process and relations between Britain and Ireland on the island of Ireland.
