British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigns

10 Juillet, 2018, 13:40 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Hunt had been health secretary, and is a leading government backer of a compromise "soft Brexit".

Davis said Monday that he believed Britain was "giving too much away, too easily" in the exit talks, saying May's plan "would be a risk at least of delivering a poor outcome".

U.K. Brexit Secretary David Davis departs Downing Street following a cabinet meeting in London on Tuesday.

"That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt", Johnson added.

May accepted Johnson's resignation on Monday, the press office of 10 Downing St. confirmed to NPR.

"His replacement will be announced shortly. The Prime Minister thanks Boris for his work", said a statement from Prime Minister Theresa May.

Johnson, a polarising figure and a former mayor of London, was a leading spokesperson for the campaign calling for Britain's departure from the European Union in advance of a June 2016 referendum. Her tenure has been defined by Britain's grappling with how to withdraw from decades of economic and political alignment with the European Union - the result of a campaign that Johnson and others had backed.

Davis resigned late on Sunday, saying he was not willing to be a "reluctant conscript" to her plans that were agreed by the whole cabinet on Friday.

"This is the Brexit that is in our national interest".

Briefly addressing Johnson's resignation, May told lawmakers that she wanted to "recognize the passion that the former foreign secretary demonstrated" as he touted Britain's global ambitions.

Sweet 16 for Roger Federer at Wimbledon
Worry not, Federer escaped and continued a roll through the tournament that has seen him play as close to his peak as ever. Thirteen Wimbledon championships between them and 49 grand slam titles overall, it was quite the historic training run.

"It is as though we are sending our vanguard into battle with the white flags fluttering above them", Johnson wrote in a letter that underscored his credentials as a champion of full-speed Brexit.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mrs May should make way for a Labour administration if her Government can not get its act together quickly.

Mrs May insists her plans are the "the best way to honour" the Brexit vote, amid a deepening political crisis. With Johnson out, Corbyn sharpened his criticism further.

"As I said then, the Government now has a song to sing".

Theresa May is desperately clinging onto her leadership of the Tory party amid the bitter in-fighting.

While other senior ministers rallied round her after the resignations which left Westminster reeling on Monday, rumblings of discontent among rank and file lawmakers remained.

Since Theresa May won the general election in 2017 she has been forced to reshuffle her Cabinet a number of times amid a number of high profile resignations. Three junior ministers also quit their posts.

The tousle-headed blond Johnson is one of Britain's best-known politicians, and one of the most prominent advocates for Brexit.

"Top-level cabinet resignations usually spell trouble for a government and Boris Johnson's might well have led to a leadership challenge, but May appears to have emerged unscathed from a meeting of her party, for now", said Al Jazeera's Jonah Hill, reporting from London.
