UK Brexit negotiator David Davis quits

David Davis thrust Prime Minister Theresa May's government into crisis by resigning as Brexit negotiator and publicly denouncing her strategy as a betrayal of voters' wishes that risked undermining British interests.

Number 10 announced on Monday morning that Housing minister Dominic Raab had been chosen to replace Mr Davis.

In her reply, Mrs May said she did not agree but thanked him for his work.

Davis was appointed two years ago to head up the newly created Department for Exiting the European Union after Britain voted to leave the bloc in a referendum.

The Press Association news agency, the BBC and others say Brexit Secretary David Davis resigned Sunday, 48 hours after May announced that her divided government had at last agreed on a plan for ties with the European Union after the United Kingdom leaves next year.

The 69-year-old had reportedly threatened to quit several times over a perceived lack of firmness in Britain's negotiating stance but had remained strictly loyal to the prime minister in public.

"A wider rebellion, a leadership challenge, early elections and possibly another major shift in the Brexit strategy (either way) can not be ruled out", Citi said in a note to clients.

George Freeman, May's former policy chief, said on Twitter that a "no deal" Brexit "just got a lot more likely".

After the hours-long meeting at Chequers, May seemed to have persuaded the most vocal Brexit campaigners in the cabinet, including Davis, to back her plan to press for "a free trade area for goods" with the European Union and maintain close trade ties. He played a leading role in the Brexit campaign in the run up to the 2016 referendum. Michael Gove, May's environment minister, said on Sunday that while the agreed negotiating stance was not flawless, he believed it delivered on handing back control to Britain.

The shot landed on a hillside. "Yeah, today was a little tougher than yesterday", said the recent Players Championship victor . Watson, who 11 days ago collected a PGA Tour-leading third win of the season, said he was not content to rest on his laurels.

For many Brexit campaigners, Baker's government role gave them faith in the process.

The Tory leader's hard-won proposal was agreed to at her Chequers country retreat after marathon talks on Friday.

His departure came shortly before Theresa May was due to address Parliament about her new Brexit plan, which has angered many Tory MPs. They have criticised the Chequers deal as offering a soft Brexit that betrays what they believe was a mandate for a clean break with the EU.

May's survival will depend on keeping other senior cabinet ministers in the government. Conservative MPs have repeatedly told Business Insider that there is likely to be a challenge against her once Brexit negotiations conclude and Britain has left the European Union next March. He called a meeting of the group on Monday.
