Last month rumours began to spread that David Davis was on the verge of stepping down

Brexit Secretary David Davis announced his resignation via a letter sent late Sunday night to Prime Minister Theresa May.

Davis quit late Sunday saying he could not support May's plans for close trade and regulatory ties with the bloc after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union next year.

There was no immediate statement from Mr Johnson, another loud pro-Brexit voice within Ms May's divided government.

For a long time it had been clear Boris Johnson was not happy with the prime minister's Brexit strategy.

The two resignations leave Mrs May badly exposed at the top of a government unable to unite over Britain's biggest foreign and trading policy shift in nearly half a decade.

If England versus Croatia goes to a penalty shootout, the Three Lions will certainly be in safe hands with Everton's Jordan Pickford between the sticks.

With less than nine months before Britain leaves and just over three before the European Union says it wants a deal, May has been forced to show her cards that she will commit the country to pursuing the closest possible trading ties with the EU.

But on the other side of the party divide, they feel that her words have not been matched by her deeds, proposing to negotiate a deal which could leave Britain still accepting European Union rules and regulations without being able to influence them.

Theresa May's government is in crisis.

They said it is a concerted push to force the prime minister to drop her Chequers compromise.

After Cameron resigned following defeat in the Brexit referendum, Davis was appointed back into government by May, Cameron's replacement. "As the prime minister said. we have set out our position and it is now the EU's turn to move and that she wants the European Union to get serious in these negotiations".

Ms May told the House of Commons that both Mr Davis and Mr Johnson had made important contributions to Britain, but did not agree with her about "the best way" of delivering Brexit.

Brexit-backing lawmakers have been angered by May's plans, saying they will keep Britain too close to the European Union and limit its ability to strike new trade deals. But some senior pro-Brexit ministers have backed May's plan.

Some euroskeptic lawmakers dream of replacing May with a staunch Brexiteer, such as Johnson, who in the past has disagreed publicly with his boss.

Davis said he did not want his resignation to become a rallying cry for May's ouster.

- Throughout his time in office Davis repeatedly expressed his loyalty to Theresa May and praised her work on Brexit.

"I'd have to deliver this". "I won't be encouraging people to do that [challenge May]", he told BBC Radio 4. "That's not a tenable position". May's Conservative Party holds a very slim majority in Parliament, which has been threatened in recent weeks by a possible no confidence vote. He urged May to abandon her plans and take a tougher line with Brussels.
