Theresa May defends Brexit plan after Cabinet departures

Theresa May defends Brexit plan after Cabinet departures

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mrs May should make way for a Labour administration if her Government can not get its act together quickly.

He added that plans to create a common rulebook for goods and agrifoods "will make it much more hard to do free trade deals" - a key goal of the Brexit supporters. "It should be a chance to do things differently", adding "that dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

Johnson had previously served as mayor of London and a lawmaker.

On Monday, minutes after Johnson quit, May defended her Brexit plan to lawmakers in the House of Commons - with Johnson absent from his usual place on the Conservative front bench.

The gaffe-prone Johnson was quickly replaced by 51-year-old former health minister Jeremy Hunt, who unlike Johnson supported staying in the European Union in the 2016 referendum.

The resignations rocked May in a week that includes a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit starting Wednesday and a United Kingdom visit by U.S. President Donald Trump that begins Thursday. It would also necessitate the imposition of a border in Northern Ireland-a red-line issue for the European Union, and something May has committed to avoiding.

And more importantly, where does it leave the Brexit negotiations?

The reshuffle is expected to continue as Mrs May attempts to stamp her authorities following the Chequers summit last Friday.

And in a rather dramatic fashion, news broke mid-way through the interview.

Boris's resignation letter is scathing.

Davis also said that May's plan "would be a risk at least of delivering a poor outcome".

In his resignation letter, Johnson wrote: "Brexit should be about opportunity and hope".

Addressing policy makers at the Council on Foreign Relations, Mr Barnier warned Britain no deal with the European Union would ever replicate membership to the bloc. The timetable looks increasingly optimistic.

The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper, said there had been "blunder after blunder" by May.

"Nine ministers have now resigned from the two key Brexit departments since Article 50 was triggered".

"I like Theresa May, I think she's a good prime minister", Davis said.

The broadsheet version of Die Welt says the government is "wobbling" after the departure of Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary.

In her reply, Mrs May told him: "I do not agree with your characterisation of the policy we agreed on at Cabinet on Friday". "That's not a tenable position". At one point, there were even reports that MPs from her Conservative Party had collected enough signatures to force a motion of confidence in her leadership-something that very well could have precipitated Britain's third general election in under 5 years.

"I think Dominic Raab will do a brilliant job of going in there and saying, 'This is what we want, are we going to get it and if not we have some alternatives'".
