If May Deal Fails: 100 Conservative MPs Set to Force Brexit Delay

UK lawmakers have united in a so-called Brexit Delivery Group, with a goal of preventing London's disorganised withdrawal from the European Union, The Daily Telegraph reported citing sources.

A group of 100 moderate Tory parliamentarians has warned British Prime Minister Theresa May that they are going to oppose the government she heads and force her to postpone Brexit if she cannot reach a deal with the EU that the British parliament would support, The Daily Telegraph reported late on 21 February citing a letter.

"Whilst we fully expect some changes to the backstop arrangements to be made by ministers in Brussels this week, there remains a chance that these will not satisfy some colleagues. Numerous members of our group have alerted us to their intention (should rejection of the deal look likely) to get behind amendments that are planned in the name of Oliver Letwin and others and which will have the twin effect of taking no deal off the table and delaying Brexit", the letter said as quoted by The Daily Telegraph.
