GETTYAndrea Leadsom praised Theresa May's Brexit resolution reached at the crunch Chequers summit

Geoffrey Cox has replaced Jeremy Wright as Attorney General.

In a scathing resignation letter to the PM, Mr Johnson said that, under her leadership, the dream of an outward-looking, global Britain after Brexit was "dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has replaced Jeremy Hunt as Health Secretary.

The Pound was quoted 0.35% lower against the Dollar at 1.3262 following the reports of Johnson's resignation, after reversing an earlier 0.58% gain, while the Pound-to-Euro exchange rate swiftly converted a 0.26% gain into a 0.31% loss that left it trading at 1.1272.

The Spurs right-back has been one of the key men in the squad as Gareth Southgate's side have reached the World Cup semi-final. The Euro '96 anthem managed to topple Drake from the top spot, clocking up over one million streams in just one day.

"It seems to me we're giving too much away, too easily, and that's a risky strategy at this time", Davis said in a BBC radio interview Monday morning.

Late on Sunday evening, Brexit secretary David Davis handed in his resignation.

May's office said in a terse statement that the prime minister had accepted Johnson's resignation and would name a replacement soon.

Mrs May said she was "sorry - and a little surprised" by Mr Johnson's move after his apparent support on Friday, when ministers held talks at Chequers.

Baby found buried alive in Missoula County mountains
Authorities soon learned that a 5-month-old baby, who had been left in Crowley's care, had been missing for several hours. Eventually, Crowley told the deputies the infant was possibly buried somewhere in the mountains, Bassett said.

Brexit minister Steve Baker and two ministerial aides also resigned. "We do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum". May appointed staunchly pro-Brexit lawmaker Dominic Raab as the country's new Brexit secretary.

The decision by Johnson, a former mayor of London, to back Brexit, was seen as crucial when the issue was taken to a referendum two years ago.

Under party rules, 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.

Johnson's resignation was more perilous for May given his seniority in government.

Who is Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee?
The Times also reported that McConnell did not "want to draw the ire" of Paul over Kavanaugh's role in crafting Bush-era policies. Kavanaugh spoke at a University of Minnesota Law School event in 2008 and later published an article about the event.

At a Cabinet meeting Friday, May demanded members support a plan for Brexit that it would include Britain partly remaining in the single market and signing up to a "common rulebook" for goods. Many Brexit campaigners in her Conservative Party say she has betrayed her promise to pursue a clean break with the EU.
