The next resignation came the following day from Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who informed the prime minister's office that he would be resigning before officially sending his extremely sharp resignation letter, in which he feared the U.K.'s new Brexit plan or "the government's song to sing", would leave the country an European Union colony and would represent the death of the "Brexit dream".
The front page of the respected broadsheet Le Monde says Davis Davis "slams the door" behind him on his way out of the Cabinet and inside says his snub to May's Brexit plan "could not have been more violent".

With less than nine months left until Britain is due to leave the bloc, May is sticking to her plan for a "business friendly" Brexit, facing down hard-line Brexit supporters in her Conservative Party who are livid over her plans to negotiate a "free-trade area for goods" with the EU.
Davis himself expressed regret that Johnson had quit, and said it would be "wrong" for his departure to trigger a major rebellion.
Woody Johnson has said that American diplomats in London will do "everything possible" to ensure Mr Trump meets with the former Foreign Secretary if he chooses to, adding that he had been a close "friend" during and after his election. Three junior ministers also quit their posts.

"When he says the Brexit dream is dying, he's really talking about the perspective he had on Brexit, but in my view that was never a live possibility in any instance".
But the Stone MP said he was encouraged that the release of the Government's Brexit white paper had been deferred for more than a week.
But others argued May had adopted the most realistic plan after she was weakened in an ill-judged election past year when she lost her parliamentary majority, meaning she has to rely on a small Northern Irish party to govern. "Brexit must and will happen".
