Four UK ministers on verge of quitting over Brexit

  • Jo Johnson’s resignation shocked Westminster

When May was presented with the alternate proposal, she told the ministers that their plan "was not needed yet" but it was greeted with a "surprisingly warm response" from Finance Minister Philip Hammond, the Sun said.

"It is entirely right to go back to the people and ask them to confirm their decision to leave the European Union and if they choose to do that, to give them the final say on whether we leave with the prime minister's deal or without it", he added.

"It was a false prospectus, it was a fantasy set of promises that have been shown up for what they were", said Johnson after resigning his post as Minister for Transport earlier in the week. "Saying we have got to draw back from this cliff edge".

"Boundless admiration as ever for my brother Jo", he said.

Once again, Brexit is the focus in the Asian open today with weekend headlines that include Liam Fox's hardline approach to the negotiations when he told Sky News that the United Kingdom may not be able to reach a Brexit agreement with EU while stressing that they are not going to get "bounced into another referendum so that those who lost the previous one can try to apply continued membership of the European Union to the people of Britain in perpetuity".

"It is a sad loss for Government, but Brexit is above party politics".

"He has not done that".

"And everybody is thinking very hard about it".

"This is the time for all of them, as Jo Johnson has done, to look deep inside their consciences, to reflect deeply on their responsibilities, and do the right thing for future generations".

The unnamed pro-Brexit ministers have briefed May on their alternative plan, the newspaper reported, without citing sources.

"Theresa May is in office, but not in power".

The Daily Telegraph also says his resignation is a "major blow" to the PM's hopes of getting MPs' backing for the plan, while she must now face the Johnson brothers' "combined heft".

He said: "I think a second referendum would be divisive, but it wouldn't be decisive".

Mr Johnson voted to remain in the European Union in the 2016 referendum while his brother Boris, who quit as foreign secretary in July, was a leading Brexiteer.

SNP MP Stephen Gethins said: "Theresa May's authority is completely gone, and it is clear that her attempts to hobble together a deal can't even unite her Government, never mind the country".

"It's time for the Tories to change course before it's too late".
