Eurosceptic British ministers quit in blow to May's Brexit plan

Eurosceptic British ministers quit in blow to May's Brexit plan Eurosceptic British ministers quit in blow to May's Brexit plan

Jeremy Hunt arrives for a Cabinet meeting chaired by British Prime Minister Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on June 5, 2018 in London, England.

He has served as health secretary since 2012.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, a long-time rival of Mr Johnson's, made her first public comment on Monday's drama when she tweeted: "The Prime Minister is correct to accept the Foreign Secretary's resignation".

Johnson said in his letter that May's plan to keep close economic ties with the bloc means Britain is heading for a "semi Brexit" that would leave Britain with the "status of a colony" of the EU.

May and her cabinet team spent Friday at Chequers, the prime minister's country house, discussing Brexit policy.

May's government was rocked Monday by the resignations of Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis. He said "the Brexit dream is dying, suffocated by needless self doubt". Only two days ago it seemed May had pushed through her Brexiteer government members a plan that could help reach an agreement with the European Union on withdrawal.

David Davis's departure as Brexit Secretary leaves a major position in Theresa May's Government vacant.

May also called on Brussels to engage with her Brexit proposal or risk Britain crashing out without a deal.

The two departures seemed to shatter May's own proclamation of cabinet unity last Friday, when she said she believed she had, after two years of wrangling, secured agreement on Britain's biggest foreign and trading policy shift in nearly half a century.

"The Prime Minister can't deliver Brexit and has zero authority left".

Hunt told LBC Radio in October 2017, however, that he had changed his mind on the issue, in part because of what he said was disappointing "arrogance" in the EU's behavior during negotiations.

Brexit-backing lawmakers have been angered by May's plans, saying they will keep Britain too close to the European Union and limit its ability to strike new trade deals.

Leaving the gathering, leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg said he did not think there would be a confidence vote over Mrs May. It has become increasingly clear to them that there is to be no swashbuckling free trade deal to be made between the United Kingdom and the EU.

"It doesn't matter to us, who sits on the other side of the table", one European Union source said, who is involved in the talks, adding that Davis's departure should not lead to a jolt in the process.
