UK Foreign Minister QUITS, Theresa May Facing REVOLT — BREXIT BREAKDOWN

"The dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt", he wrote.

Boris Johnson (file) in March. He said on Monday he thought May was a good prime minister and did not want to see her replaced, but could not defend her strategy in good faith.

Mrs May scrambled to fill the holes in Cabinet last night with a series of radical moves - shifting Jeremy Hunt to Foreign Secretary and Dominic Raab into the key Brexit Secretary role.

Theresa May told MPs she pays tribute to Boris Johnson and David Davis but said they "do not agree about" the best way to proceed with Brexit.

While other senior ministers rallied round her after the resignations which left Westminster reeling on Monday, rumblings of discontent among rank and file lawmakers remained.

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.

May is scheduled to address Parliament about the state of her Brexit plan later on Monday. "I like Theresa May, I think she is a good prime minister".

A prime minister who promised us strength and stability loses ministers faster than I lose phone chargers.

If Davis's resignation rattled May, Johnson's shook the foundations of her government.

Mrs May told MPs that the plan agreed by the cabinet at Chequers was the basis of a "responsible and credible" offer to restart renegotiations with the EU.

May said that was the "only way to avoid a hard border" between the U.K.'s Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.

What was the reaction in the Commons?

"Theresa May's Government is in meltdown", deputy leader of the Labour Party Tom Watson said. As I said then, the government now has a song to sing. This sets up an overdue moment of truth for the Tory Brexiters.

What has been the reaction from the EU?

As we developed our policy on Brexit, I have allowed Cabinet colleagues considerable latitude to express their individual views.

What does it all mean for Brexit?

The UK government is in turmoil, but that has been the case for more than two years.

The government has battled to find a way of tackling these while maintaining access to European Union markets and avoiding burdensome customs arrangements that could damage businesses, with some leading companies warning they could cut investment or withdraw from Britain in the wake of a no-deal Brexit.
