British Prime Minister Theresa May scored a key success in clinching a Brexit agreement with Brussels on Friday but faced an immediate backlash from hardliners at home for making compromises.The Sun newspaper earlier this week even reported a plot to oust her before Christmas and install her Brexit Secretary David Davis as prime minister.While that threat may have receded for now, it has not gone away and May faces an uphill struggle in shoring up parliamentary support for tortuous upcoming negotiations on the future UK-EU partnership.Environment Secretary Michael Gove, a top Brexit campaigner who ran against May in a party leadership race last year, said the preliminary agreement was a "significant personal, political achievement".Gove and Johnson have both been critical of May's approach to Brexit negotiations in the past.Conservative MP Anna Soubry, a leading pro-EU advocate who has threatened to rebel against the government on key upcoming votes, gave the deal a "warm welcome" and hoped it would heal the "dreadful Brexit divide".
