U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson Resigns Over Brexit

British PM names staunchly pro-Brexit lawmaker to key post after predecessor quits UK Government On Verge Of Collapse Days Before Trump's Visit

British Prime Minister Theresa May has defended her post-Brexit trade plan that sparked Cabinet resignations, saying it is the only way to avoid a hard border with Ireland. Davis announced his resignation late Sunday.

Theresa May told MPs she pays tribute to Boris Johnson and David Davis but said they "do not agree about" the best way to proceed with Brexit.

Their departures come on the heels of a pivotal meeting held by Prime Minister Theresa May last week at Chequers, an estate outside of London.

Those remarks came during the notoriously boisterous prime minister's "question time" at the House of Commons. We have a difference over the strategy.

Justice Secretary David Gauke insisted the Cabinet was now fully behind Mrs May's approach on Brexit after the departures.

Theresa May faces a mortal threat to her leadership of the Conservative Party and Government today.

Rebuffing claims that her proposals make too many concessions to the EU, May said "this is the right Brexit" and would leave Britain free to make its own laws and trade deals.

May, the leader of the Conservative party, believed she had secured a hard-won agreement with her deeply divided cabinet of ministers on Friday to keep the closest possible trading ties with the EU. Johnson called it an "absolute stinker" of a deal, and said that defending it is like "polishing a turd".

"I hope the PM now revisits the Chequers statement and realises it is not what the big bulk of the MPs want, it is not what the overwhelming majority of the members of the party want, it's not what the 17.4 million Brexit voters want and adjusts it", MP John Redwood wrote on Twitter.

May's personal authority was badly damaged after she called a snap election a year ago to strengthen her hand in Brexit talks but instead she lost her parliamentary majority, meaning she has to rely on a small Northern Irish party to govern.

But in reality, she will be at the mercy of her party.

Why so many resignations at once?

Then, nominations will be accepted.

Raab is said to be willing to support the PM's strategy over the European Union exit. May could survive a leadership challenge if Johnson or Davis decide to try to unseat her.

This will be a busy week for the United Kingdom.

Mr Davis, who has been Brexit Secretary since Mrs May became prime minister in 2016, said he had made compromises since taking on the role, but this was "one compromise too far". Meanwhile, there is an ongoing murder investigation into the death of a British woman due to Novichok, the same nerve agent used to poison Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter earlier this year.

European Union officials on Monday sounded unimpressed by Davis's resignation, saying he had been once to Brussels over the past two months, even though he is the top negotiator for the UK. While International Development Secretary Penny Morduant immediately welcomed the decision saying Rabb is "highly capable, across the issues, attention to detail, Leave supporter and pragmatist", others said Davis' resignation has plunged Britain into "absolute chaos".
