United Kingdom prime minister fights to stop Cabinet exodus over Brexit

Pound is the worst performer

British Prime Minister Theresa May selected Jeremy Hunt to replace Boris Johnson as foreign secretary Monday as she sought to re-stabilize her government following a pair of high-profile resignations over Brexit. He says the Brexit "dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt", and that Britain is "headed to the status of a colony", having to swallow European Union writ without "any ability to influence these laws as they are made".

Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May has sought to curb the growing turmoil around her leadership with the appointment of United Kingdom health secretary Jeremy Hunt as the new foreign secretary to replace Boris Johnson.

In the minutes after the news of Johnson's resignation, the pound dropped to around 1.3270 against the dollar, a fall of more than 0.3% from it's opening price on Monday.

"It seems to me we're giving too much away, too easily, and that's a unsafe strategy at this time", Davis said in a BBC radio interview Monday morning.

"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.

The Prime Minister said she was "sorry and a little surprised" over Johnson's resignation, after "productive discussions" on Friday.

Brexit minister Steve Baker and two ministerial aides also resigned.

May appeared in Parliament earlier on Monday afternoon to defend her plan, minutes after Downing Street confirmed the departure of Johnson.

Addressing parliament just minutes after her office announced that Johnson, the face of Brexit for many in Britain, had quit, May told MPs she appreciated the work of her two ministers.

Kawhi Leonard Rumors: New Team ‘Generating Buzz’ As Potential Destination
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 walkouts came after a weekend of crunch talks at Chequers over the weekend, in which ministers tried to hammer out the UK's Brexit negotiating position.

Johnson's resignation was more perilous for May given his seniority in government.

It leaves the four great offices of state - Prime Minister, Chancellor, Foreign Secretary, and Home Secretary - in the hands of ministers who voted to stay in the European Union, although in the case of Home Secretary Sajid Javid at least, with no great enthusiasm. However, should she survive such a challenge, Conservative Party rules prevent her opponents from making another try to unseat her for at least a year.
