UK prime minister fights to stop Cabinet exodus over Brexit

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, but May's bid to finalise a strategy was rocked on Monday by the resignations of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis in protest at her plan for Brexit.

"And over the last few days, there is a treasure trove of quotations from senior members of the Government about what they really think about the Government's negotiating position".

Britain's foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, announced his resignation shortly after.

One take is that Davis leaving clears the way for a softer Brexit and that might be the right call but something has been brewing before this latest whipsaw. This is a point that supporters in the British government of the so-called hard Brexit and the ruling Conservative Party had previously ruled out.

Sure, three of her most pro-Brexit ministers-Andrea Leadsom, Chris Grayling and Michael Gove-went on the airwaves to defend the agreement.

"The Prime Minister thanks Boris for his work", said a statement from Prime Minister Theresa May.

Matt Hancock replaced Hunt as health secretary, while Attorney General Jeremy Wright was appointed as minister of digital culture, media and sport, Hancock's old job.

Hours later UK Foreign Minister Boris Johnson resigned over the political 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.

The tousle-headed blond Johnson is one of Britain's best-known politicians, and one of the most prominent advocates for Brexit.

Johnson said in his letter that May's plan to keep close economic ties with the bloc means the U.K.is heading for a "semi-Brexit" that would leave Britain with the "status of colony" within the EU.

British Prime Minister Theresa May dug in her heels today after the resignation of two top government ministers over Brexit negotiations whipped up a storm that threatened to topple her fragile minority government.

After the cabinet meeting, Mrs May tweeted that she was "looking ahead to a busy week".

"Brexit should be about opportunity and hope", Johnson said in a scathing resignation letter that was echoed in headlines in a number of Britain's national newspapers.

The outgoing Brexit secretary said the government had gone further than it should have in the negotiations, in a "dangerous strategy".

"We negotiate with the negotiators", he said.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 48 lawmakers from May's Conservative Party request one.
