As news of David Davis’ resignation emerged, Mr McDonnell said: ‘We are now in a situation where there is paralysis in government.

‘Having forced her Brexit policy through her cabinet, Theresa May now knows she hasn’t a majority to push it through Parliament and yet the Brexiteers haven’t the votes to get rid of her.

‘No way to govern a country.’

He added: ‘With a Prime Minister incapable of holding her ministerial team together and with such instability in government it’s impossible to see how EU leaders could take Theresa May seriously in the next round of negotiations.

‘It’s time for her and her party to put country before party and go.’   

Labour chairman Ian Lavery said: ‘This is absolute chaos and Theresa May has no authority left.

‘The Prime Minister is in office but not in power. She cannot deliver Brexit and our country is at a complete standstill, while the Tories indulge in their leadership tussling.

‘We can’t go on like this. Britain needs a functioning Government.’
