Boris Johnson quits as UK's May faces mounting Brexit crisis

David Davis

Former foreign minister Boris Johnson, who wrote in his resignation letter that the Brexit "dream is dying" and that Britain was headed for the "status of colony" of the European Union under May´s leadership, is seen as a potential challenger.

Later on Monday night, Johnson's replacement was announced: Jeremy Hunt, who was previously the Health Secretary.

After the resignations of Boris Johnson and David Davis, the Prime Minister has finally managed to secure collective responsibility from her previously divided Cabinet for her latest Brexit proposal.

"My concern is about the policy rather than the individual", he said. In one instance, he blamed Sinn Féin for Ireland's stance on the border.

"They have players like Harry Maguire , Harry Kane , John Stones and others, who are very strong". Victory would see them return to the same venue to face either France or Belgium in the final.

Johnson said in his letter that May's plan to keep close economic ties with the bloc means Britain is heading for a "semi Brexit" that would leave Britain with the "status of a colony" of the EU. And more importantly, where does it leave the Brexit negotiations? David expressed concerns that it was looking less and less likely that the United Kingdom would leave the customs union and single market.

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".

On Monday, May defended Friday's deal, which would allow for some ties between Britain and the EU. Three junior ministers also quit their posts.

"Boris goes in for the kill" is the Daily Mail's headline, with the paper warning the "day of chaos" has left the PM fighting for her survival.

According to Bontemps, the Philadelphia 76ers have consistently remained atop the list of teams expected to land Leonard . The Lakers have reportedly been asked to give up Brandon Ingram , Kyle Kuzma , Josh Hart and multiple first-round picks.

It said May now faces "the spectre of a leadership challenge", but it was "possible that after a period of resignations and political blood-letting, the Conservative Party will fall behind the prime minister".

May has hung on to power longer than many expected after she lost her majority in a June 2017 snap election that she had called in hopes of strengthening her hand in Brexit talks. "If the government plans to get the deal through on the back of Labour Party votes, that would be the most divisive thing it could do, and it would be a split coming from the top".

Mrs May however appears to have lived to fight another day, with no vote of no confidence tabled by her MPs.

Dominic Raab, a Brexit supporter and former housing minister, was appointed to replace Davis only days before negotiations in Brussels are due to resume next week. "But I'm getting on with delivering what the British people want".
