May clings to power amid Brexit resignation turmoil

David Davis quits as Brexit Secretary leaving Theresa May facing a crisis

Those believing that there will be a deal of some sort agreed with the European Union are effectively neck-and-neck with people who think there will be a Brexit with no deal agreed - 37% expect a deal, 34% expect Brexit to happen without a deal being agreed.

In her reply, Mrs May told him: "I do not agree with your characterisation of the policy we agreed on at Cabinet on Friday".

Johnson, another loud pro-Brexit voice within May's divided government, slammed May in a resignation letter, accusing her of flying "white flags" of surrender in negotiations with the EU. Their replacements, in particular Jeremy Hunt who moves to the Foreign Office, are determined loyalists who are likely to strengthen, rather than weaken May's grip on power.

United Kingdom prime minister fights to stop Cabinet exodus over Brexit
Johnson's resignation was more perilous for May given his seniority in government. Brexit minister Steve Baker and two ministerial aides also resigned .

"That is why we are demanding a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal". There was feverish speculation on Monday about May's prospects. However, there was little sign that this was on the cards.

That makes negotiating a deal with the European Union very hard: The bloc has said that Britain can't pick and choose the "four freedoms" (free movement of goods, capital, services, and people) and have an "a la carte" Brexit.

However, this may change and frustration with May's rapidly softening Brexit policy could tip the balance. Many see him as a future leader of the Conservatives and as a prominent Leaver he could stop the rush to topple the prime minister from the Brexit wing of the party.

Pro-Europeans want to retain close economic ties with the bloc and its market of 500 million people, while some, but not all, Brexit supporters want a clean break to make it possible to strike new trade deals around the world. They are certainly plotting something. The spokesman also confirmed that May "hopes" to name a new foreign minister on Monday night. She would likely be supported by a majority of Conservative MPs.

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.

The Conservative Minister replied: "I disagree".

It's not just in a leadership contest where Conservative Brexiteers don't have sufficient numbers.

In her statement to Parliament, May attempted to give an impression of business as usual, saying she would present a detailed paper onThursday on the government's negotiating position for a post-Brexit relationship with the EU.

May says the plan will deliver frictionless trade with Europe and avoid a hard border between the U.K.'s Northern Ireland region and European Union member Ireland.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigns amid Cabinet's deep divisions over Brexit
