His resignation this afternoon from the Foreign Office, in response to May's Soft Brexit plan agreed at Chequers on Friday, and following the resignation of Brexit secretary David Davis last night, ends a period of political prevarication we haven't seen since Boris Johnson couldn't make up his mind about whether to back Leave or Remain at the European Union referendum.

Under Conservative Party rules, a leadership race could be triggered if at least 48 of her MPs declared their support for one.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mr Johnson and Mr Davis had abandoned a "sinking ship", shattering the "illusion of unity" initially surrounding the Chequers plan.

Meanwhile, the pound fell against the dollar and the euro following Mr Johnson's resignation, with analysts warning it was likely to fall further if he launched a leadership challenge to Mrs May.
