May loyalist named UK's new foreign secretary

Matt Hancock named as new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Brexit news: Jeremy Hunt CONFIRMED as new foreign secretary | Daily Star

Jeremy Hunt has been named as the new foreign secretary, replacing Boris Johnson.

As an ally of Osborne, he campaigned for the "Remain" campaign before the 2016 referendum.

Following news of the cabinet split, former England worldwide and 1986 World Cup Golden Boot victor Gary Lineker was among the first with a football jargon-laiden jibe comparing Johnson's resignation to a "transfer request".

The prime minister earlier faced down backbench critics at a meeting of the 1922 committee, amid rumours they were close to getting the 48 signatures needed to trigger a no-confidence vote that could have removed her as prime minister.

Both Mr Johnson and Mr Davis had signed up on Friday to Mrs May's blueprint for Brexit - but 48 hours later, first Mr Davis and then Mr Johnson said they could not commit themselves to promoting the plans as they did not believe in them.

He said in his letter that May's plan to keep close economic ties with the bloc mean the United Kingdom was heading for a "semi-Brexit" that would leave Britain with the "status of colony" within the EU.

"Over that time, I've listened to every possible idea and every possible version of Brexit".

Addressing parliament today, the Prime Minister told MPs: "We do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honouring the result of the referendum".

David Davis quit as Brexit Secretary on Sunday. Later, he told the BBC the United Kingdom was giving "too much away, too easily" in negotiations with the EU. Many Brexit campaigners in her Conservative Party say she has betrayed her promise to pursue a clean break with the EU.
