UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigns amid Cabinet's deep divisions over Brexit

  • Government Ministers Attend The Weekly Cabinet Meeting

This is because, even though these hardliners don't yet have the 48 signatures needed to call a vote on her leadership (and certainly not the 159 needed to actually oust her), May's cobbled-together majority in the House of Commons is so slim that even a handful of them could derail the process. There are also claims she may struggle to get Brexit legislation through Parliament, as her now free ministers exert pressure from the Commons backbenches.

British Prime Minister Theresa May met with her shaken-up Cabinet on Tuesday as she tried to restore government unity after the resignations of two top ministers over Brexit.

Some Conservative Party lawmakers warned they would not tolerate a betrayal of Brexit.

European Council president Donald Tusk has said the "mess caused by Brexit is the biggest problem in the history of EU-UK relations", according to reports.

The "common rulebook" plan "hands control of large swathes of our economy to the European Union and is certainly not returning control of our laws in any real sense", he wrote to Mrs May.

Davis said his job required "an enthusiastic believer in your approach, and not merely a reluctant conscript". "So, if we look at her recent appointments it has effectively stacked the cabinet in her favour".

His exit may embolden Brexiteer backbenchers with concerns about Mrs May's leadership.

But she wakes up this morning facing the toughest challenge of her time in Downing Street to date.

Loud applause could be heard at the end of the 1922 Committee meeting, which the PM attended for just over an hour. If you think that No 10 are going to capitulate to what we think is reasonable, we are wrong.

Jens Stoltenberg a déclaré dimanche dans l'édition dominicale du Bild que l'Allemagne devait "en faire davantage". Le président américain se rend au siège de l'OTAN, puis à Londres, cette semaine, avant un sommet avec Poutine.

Two senior sources confirmed Mr Davis' departure from the Cabinet.

Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen is the first Tory reported to have submitted a letter declaring no confidence in Theresa May. Euroskeptic Conservative lawmaker Peter Bone said party activists felt "betrayed" by the government plan.

Those believing that there will be a deal of some sort agreed with the European Union are effectively neck-and-neck with people who think there will be a Brexit with no deal agreed - 37% expect a deal, 34% expect Brexit to happen without a deal being agreed.

Mrs May told MPs that the plan agreed by the cabinet at Chequers was the basis of a "responsible and credible" offer to restart renegotiations with the EU.

Conservative party leadership rules mean rival contenders for the top job can not simply challenge the prime minister.

Sir Malcolm told Iain Dale the United Kingdom was better off without Boris as Foreign Secretary.

May must now move quickly to try to win the EU's support for her Brexit proposal to unblock talks. "This is the right Brexit".

"The prime minister can't deliver Brexit and has zero authority left".
