Jeremy Hunt, appointed the new Foreign Secretary as the Prime Minister carried out a hurried reshuffle of her top team, vowed that he would be "four square" behind her in driving through her Brexit plan.

So farewell, then, Boris Johnson, who this weekresigned from the cabinet because the latest Brexit plan meant that "we are truly headed for the status of colony".

"We're not sure if Theresa May now commands a majority in the House of Commons", Watson told the BBC on Tuesday.

Rees-Mogg has assembled a significant amount of Eurosceptic MPs, including fellow Tory backbenchers, the DUP, and Kate Hoey from Labour, who are furious at the PM's Chequers Brexit plans they've nicknamed "Brino" (Brexit In Name Only), according to the Sun.

Asked about Boris Johnson's resignation, Trump added: "Boris Johnson is a friend of mine".

Johnson had been due to host a summit about the western Balkans on Monday afternoon but was instead holed up in his official residence with close advisers, considering his position.

On Wednesday, The Stream explores the political fallout of the resignations and what they mean for both the future of Theresa May's government and Brexit.

Senior lawmakers in her party said they did not expect the prime minister to face a vote of no confidence, although some Conservatives were still saying that she should go.

But former Conservative leader William Hague, writing in the Daily Telegraph, said May´s critics had failed to produce "any credible alternative proposal" and warned that further resignations could put Brexit itself "at risk".

Wilshere leaves Arsenal for London rival West Ham
West Ham's current record signing is Marko Arnautovic, who joined the club last summer in a deal worth up to £25m. Wilshere made 197 first-team appearances for Arsenal and was part of the 2014 and 2015 FA Cup-winning sides.

Theresa May last night faced claims she shared her Brexit plan with Angela Merkel before revealing it to her Cabinet at Chequers.

" The White Paper therefore needs to deliver confidence for the UK's world-leading services sector, as well as goods".

The new Brexit Secretary has been urged to highlight the importance of agriculture in future Brexit negotiations with the EU.

Merkel, a key voice in Brussels, said the other 27 European Union members would give a joint response, "but it's good that the proposals are on the table - that much I can say already, without going into details".

"The government now has a song to sing", he said.

Mr Davis said that his departure was not a prelude to him challenging the prime minister's position, but said it was "not for me to make other peoples' decisions" on whether to follow his lead and to leave the cabinet. She added that she was "sorry, and a little surprised" at his resignation after the discussions in Chequers. Baker was replaced by Chris Heaton-Harris, another Brexiter, who sparked controversy past year after asking universities to supply details of their teaching on the EU.

"I believe this will help the Government stick to the promises it made", he continued.

The resignations rocked May in a week that includes a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit starting Wednesday and a United Kingdom visit by US President Donald Trump from Thursday. "Let's see how it goes".

In response, May said she was looking forward to meeting Trump when he arrives Thursday: "We'll be talking positively about how we can continue to work together in our special relationship".
