Jeremy Hunt named as new foreign secretary

Brexit is becoming an utter disaster.

The dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt.

In a scathing resignation letter to the Prime Minister, Mr Johnson said the United Kingdom was "heading for a semi-Brexit " under her leadership.

May is scheduled to address Parliament about the state of her Brexit plan later on Monday.

The Cabinet minister quit his position, saying "the current trend of policy and tactics" was making it look less and less likely that the government could "deliver on the mandate of the referendum, and on our manifesto commitment to leave the customs union and the Single Market".

Johnson reportedly was more blunt, describing the plan as a "turd".

DAVID Davis has resigned as Brexit Secretary in a major blow to Theresa May.

"This afternoon, the Prime Minister accepted the resignation of Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary", a statement from Downing Street said. His replacement will be announced shortly. But then prime minister David Cameron stood by him.

The value of the British pound dropped on global markets after Johnson's announcement, having risen after the announcement Friday that a Cabinet deal on Brexit had been agreed.

He said: "I'm obviously sorry to hear that the Foreign Secretary has resigned".

The MP for Aylesbury campaigned to remain in the European Union.

"I don't think it's central to Foreign Secretary, but there you are".

Opposition politicians were quick to capitalize on May's troubles.

The loss of two senior ministers and the anger among Brexit-supporting backbench lawmakers makes May's position as leader increasingly tenuous. They quit amid divisions in the government over Brexit.

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

It follows concerns over Theresa May's Brexit proposal put forward to Cabinet ministers at Chequers on Friday.

Mrs May is expected to tell MPs that the strategy agreed on at Chequers is the "right Brexit" for Britain.

If she refuses to change course, she could face a leadership challenge.

But there was growing speculation about Mr Johnson's plans on Monday after he failed to attend a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergencies committee as well as a summit of Western Balkan nations being held in London. Many Brexit campaigners in her Conservative Party say she has betrayed her promise to pursue a clean break with the EU.
