Tory rebels who try to block no-deal Brexit told they will have whip withdrawn

The dramatic threat to effectively expel potential rebels from the party is being issued by Tory whips ahead of a critical week in parliament for Boris Johnson's Brexit plans.

Withdrawing the whip would see MPs keep their seats in parliament but sit in the Commons as independent MPs.

With an estimated 40 Tory MPs set to rebel, this would reduce the number of Tory seats in the House would be seriously short of a majority.
