David Davis warns United Kingdom giving away too much in Brexit talks

David Davis warns United Kingdom giving away too much in Brexit talks

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.

Aside from the loyalty which MPs naturally feel towards their leader, many are concerned that Mrs May's removal could plunge the party into chaos, with no obvious replacement lined up, potentially setting the scene for Jeremy Corbyn to seize power in a new general election. They quit amid divisions in the government over Brexit.

"Once David Davis and Boris Johnson set out their resignation reasons, it became clear that Brexit and Chequers were not the same thing".

Tusk said it was unfortunate that the whole "idea of Brexit has not left together with David Davis". 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.

"I think the fact that she has lost two cabinet members has. strengthened her", he said.

The ERG's chairman, Jacob Rees-Mogg, has said he has not sent a letter to the 1922 Committee, and expects Mrs May to remain in office at least until Brexit Day in March 2019.

Certainly not what would be needed to make Theresa May's proposed third way for Brexit work as she now presents it.

Their resignation prompted a mini-reshuffle, with former health secretary Jeremy Hunt stepping into Mr Johnson's shoes and former housing minister Dominic Raab taking over from Mr Davis.

British journalist and writer Neil Clark told RT how there is now "incredible uncertainty" over how the United Kingdom will go about Brexit negotiations, given a "split" in the party over the country's future trade relations with the EU.

Tory Brexiteers say the proposals agreed at Friday's meeting of the Cabinet at Chequers are "Brexit in name only".

In his resignation letter, Mr Johnson, who spearheaded the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, declared the Brexit dream is "dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

Britain will not hold a referendum on the final deal to leave the European Union or seek to delay its exit date, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday, after two ministerial resignations put her Brexit plan at risk.

"I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship", he said.

"We negotiate with the negotiators", he said.

Other pro-Brexit Cabinet ministers said they supported May and would not resign.

His resignation comes just a month after he was heard launching a scathing attack on the government's Brexit strategy in a leaked tape from a private dinner with Conservative activists.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 15 percent of Conservative lawmakers - now 48 - write a letter requesting one.
