The latest minister to quit British Prime Minister Theresa May's government because of Brexit says the prime minister's divorce deal with the bloc would leave Britain outnumbered and outmaneuvered in future negotiations.
Ex-Universities and Science Minister Sam Gyimah likened the deal to playing soccer against opponents who "are the referee and they make the rules as well". But it's a variant on her sales pitch since sealing a deal with the European Union at the weekend on the terms of Britain's departure and a political framework for its future relationship.
The warnings from institutions like the Bank of England, the CBI, and the Government's own technical papers have been calamitous about the impact of leaving without a deal on March 29 - though some Brexiteers say much of this is an exaggeration.
In a round of broadcast interviews in Argentina, where she is attending the G20 summit, Mrs May declined to discuss whether she might offer a Plan B if her deal is voted down on December 11, or whether defeat could mean her resigning or being forced out.
Many members of Parliament on both sides of the Brexit debate oppose the deal - Brexiters because it keeps Britain bound closely to the European Union, pro-EU politicians because it erects barriers between the United Kingdom and the European Union, its biggest trading partner.
With less than two weeks to go before a vote in the House of Commons, May is trying to win support from lawmakers of all parties who have balked at the deal.
U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May headed to the Group of 20 summit in Argentina with a message for world leaders: Her Brexit deal is good for the global economy. His resignation came after May said Britain was abandoning efforts to retain full access to the EU's Galileo satellite navigation system after Brexit.

May said: "Being inside the EU is not an option, so what we have to look at is what is the best option outside the EU because people have voted to leave the EU".
The prime minister was also asked repeatedly whether she had a back-up plan. "This is about what is in the national interest".
Speaking at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Abe urged May "to avoid no deal, as well as to ensure transparency, predictability as well as legal stability in the Brexit process".
"Does the deal deliver 100 percent of what I wanted? No".
Mr Brown said: "Such actions on the part of the BBC are clearly not in line with the obligation to act fairly and leave the corporation open to the clear impression that you are acting on behalf of the Prime Minister's office, a position I am sure the BBC would not wish to be in".
On Thursday, the Bank of England (BoE) warned that such an eventuality could drag the United Kingdom into a recession and cause GDP to fall by up to eight percent, echoing countless other warnings about Britain crashing out of the EU.
Britain is expected to announce that it will create a post of trade envoy to Buenos Aires following talks between Mrs May and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri.
