The British pound dives after Boris Johnson resigns as Foreign Secretary

"This afternoon, the Prime Minister accepted the resignation of Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary", a spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May said.

He was the second senior cabinet minister to quit in a matter of hours, after the Brexit secretary David Davis's exit yesterday.

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 Bank of England's former Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) member Danny Blanchflower stated that the PM's current tenure could be short-lived following David Davis' resignation, and after months of threats of a leadership challenge, the Tories may finally make a move to oust the current Prime Minister.

Some Brexit-supporting lawmakers are angry at the proposals, saying they will keep Britain tethered to the bloc and unable to change its rules to strike new trade deals around the world.

The resignations further complicate that process, and put a question mark over whether she can get the backing of parliament for her Brexit plans and whether there may be a leadership contest.

Mrs May insists her plans are the "the best way to honour" the Brexit vote.

Prime Minister Theresa May has defended her Brexit plans.

May said that Britain would not look to extend Article 50, the notice of intention to leave the European Union, and that British people wanted the government to deliver Brexit rather than voting again on the deal. May appointed staunchly pro-Brexit lawmaker Dominic Raab as the country's new Brexit secretary.

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

But her speech in parliament signalled that, after finally nailing her colours to a vision of Brexit, she had made a decision to face down the dissenters, who probably do not constitute a majority of Conservative members of parliament.

"An agreement was reached by the cabinet on Friday and now we are moving forward to negotiate that plan", May's spokesman told reporters.

May had been reluctant to spell out her strategy until now precisely for fear of igniting furious rows in her deeply divided Conservative Party.

They fear a clean break would cost jobs. "But I'm getting on with delivering what the British people want".

But Davis had expressed his unease over a compromise plan right up until the eve of the meeting, writing a letter to May describing her proposal to ease trade and give Britain more freedom to set tariffs as "unworkable".
