Brexit: Cabinet has duty to agree Brexit plan, says Theresa May per BBC News

This BBC report on the upcoming Cabinet meeting makes it pretty clear where the BBC stand on the meeting and Brexit.

'Theresa May says her cabinet has "a great opportunity - and a duty" to agree a blueprint for the UK's future relationship with the EU.

Before Friday's crunch Chequers meeting she said she wanted "ambitious new trade deals" and an agreement "in the best interests of the UK and the EU".

The PM must resolve splits within the cabinet over the shape of Brexit.

She is expected to present a proposal for UK-EU customs arrangements that would see the UK set its own tariffs.

Once ministers reach an agreement on the UK's proposal, the EU can then choose to accept or reject the plan.

Seven Brexiteer cabinet ministers met at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on Thursday to discuss their tactics and how they plan to push back.

Ministers have been told they will have to hand in their phones and any smartwatches on arrival at Chequers on Friday.'

The institutionally pro the EU BBC slant this report very clearly.
