Boris Johnson resigns as British foreign secretary

13 2016 Newly

The British government says Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has resigned, amid a widening split in the Cabinet over Brexit.

Boris Johnson followed Davis in resigning as foreign secretary a day later, plunging the government into more of a mess than it was in already. Davis' deputy, Steve Baker, also resigned on Sunday.

In his resignation letter, Johnson harshly criticised the government's approach to Brexit: "Brexit should be about opportunity and hope".

Senior lawmakers in her party said they did not expect the prime minister to face a vote of no confidence, although some Conservatives were still saying that she should go.

In his letter to the Prime Minister, Davis said: "Whether it is the progressive dilution of what I thought was a firm Chequers agreement In February on right to diverge, or the unnecessary delays of the start of the white paper, or the presentation of a backstop proposal that omitted the strict conditions that I requested and believed that we had agreed, the general direction of policy will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position, and possibly an inescapable one".

India thump England to clinch T20 series after Rohit Sharma century
Considering the start England had, with Jos Buttler and Jason Roy racing to 94/0 inside eight overs, the pressure was on India . Indian spin that dominated the first T20I failed to get some wickets in the second one as Alex Hales led the team to victory.

Asked if he would join some other lawmakers in calling for May to stand down, he told BBC Radio: "I won't be one of them". We have a difference over the strategy.

Those remarks came during the notoriously boisterous prime minister's "question time" at the House of Commons.

Even before Johnson quit, Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn had said the Cabinet's discord over May's Brexit plan showed she was "incapable of delivering" a workable plan and should step down.

Johnson called it an "absolute stinker" of a deal, and said that defending it is like "polishing a turd". "It should be a chance to do things differently", adding "that dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

We have postponed crucial decisions - including the preparations for no deal, as I argued in my letter to you of last November - with the result that we appear to be heading for a semi-Brexit, with large parts of the economy still locked in the European Union system, but with no United Kingdom control over that system.

"My personal opinion is that she has strengthened herself quite a bit", he told Al Jazeera in an interview from London.

Why so many resignations at once?

At least 48 Tory MPs - 15% of the party's 316-strong representation in the Commons - must write to the chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, to trigger a no-confidence vote. Then, nominations will be accepted.

Davis's sudden resignation on Sunday evening was much debated and discussed on Twitter the following morning.

Davis, for his part, insisted that May's position as prime minister is still safe. "I don't think it's a survival issue at all".
