The Labour leader said people should "see what happens" on Tuesday, when Mrs May's controversial Withdrawal Agreement is put to a vote in the Commons, but said his party would table a confidence motion "at a time of our choosing".

Writing in the Sunday Express, Mrs May warned of a "catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust" in democracy if Brexit fails to materialise.

Lawmakers in the United Kingdom are set to vote Tuesday on May's Brexit plan after she shelved plans for a December vote when it became clear she would lose that vote.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has conceded that MPs can block a no-deal Brexit, saying it was "now looking much less likely that Parliament would allow a no-deal outcome".

She continued: "When you turned out to vote in the referendum, you did so because you wanted your voice to be heard". We can not - and must not - let you down.

My message to Parliament this weekend is simple: it is time to forget the games and do what is right for our country.

"Doing so would be a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy".

Her stark warning came as Downing Street said it was "extremely concerned" about a backbench plot to change Commons rules to enable backbench motions to take precedence over Government business if Mrs May's deal falls.

Described as "a very British coup", the plan would see May lose control of parliamentary business to MPs, threatening her ability to govern, the newspaper said.

BBC political correspondent Chris Mason said one possibility was that backbenchers could legally compel the government to delay Brexit beyond the set departure date - a proposal some MPs have already called for.

He used an article in the Sunday Telegraph to urge MPs to vote down Mrs May's "bad" deal to send a message to Brussels that the United Kingdom "will not be bullied". However, with more than 100 Tory MPs opposing the deal, it is expected to be rejected.

In addition to recommending that MPs reject both a no-deal Brexit and the Prime Minister's deal, the letter states that the European Union should be asked to extend Article 50 beyond the current March 29 deadline, with a view to then supporting a new referendum on European Union membership.

MPs will gather at Westminster Monday to resume their marathon debate on the Brexit bill ahead of the vote early Tuesday evening.

"The UK Government's Brexit deal will take Scotland out of the European Union against our will". The vote was postponed at short notice in December after the Prime Minister faced a humiliating defeat by politicians.
