Jeremy Hunt replaces Boris Johnson as UK Foreign Secretary

13 2016 Newly Jeremy Hunt replaces Boris Johnson as UK Foreign Secretary

British Prime Minister Theresa May named Jeremy Hunt to the job of foreign secretary, after the resignation of Boris Johnson on Monday.

Britain's Secretary of State for Departing the EU David Davis delivers a speech on Britain's security relationship with the EU after Brexit, in London, June 6, 2018.

May, the leader of the Conservative party, believed she had secured a hard-won agreement with her deeply divided cabinet of ministers on Friday to keep the closest possible trading ties with the EU.

May defended her Brexit plan to lawmakers in the House of Commons on Monday, with Johnson absent from his usual place on the Conservative front bench. But leading pro-Brexit lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg said he did not think she would face a leadership challenge.

Mrs May however appears to have lived to fight another day, with no vote of no confidence tabled by her MPs.

"Brexit should be about opportunity and hope", Johnson wrote.

Both Brexiteers and Remainers might consider voting the deal down during the meaningful vote, with each side convinced that such an act would or wouldn't trigger a no-deal Brexit, respectively.

She paid tribute to Mr Johnson's "passion" in championing a global Britain after Brexit and Mr Davis' work in steering through key Brexit legislation.

With Britain due to leave the 28-nation bloc on March 29, 2019, European Union officials have warned Britain repeatedly that time is running out to seal a deal spelling out the terms of the divorce and a post-split relationship.

A prime minister who promised us strength and stability loses ministers faster than I lose phone chargers.

Mrs May is expected to tell MPs that the strategy agreed on at Chequers is the "right Brexit" for Britain.

Under her proposal, a treaty would be signed committing the UK to "continued harmonisation" with EU rules - avoiding friction at the UK-EU border, including Northern Ireland. "But I'm getting on with delivering what the British people want".

But Parliament would oversee the UK's trade policy and have the ability to "choose" to diverge from the European Union rules.

"Theresa May's Government is in meltdown", deputy leader of the Labour Party Tom Watson said.

Schinas said the bloc "will continue to negotiate in good will, bona fide, with Prime Minister Theresa May and the United Kingdom government negotiators in order to reach a deal".

Brexiteer Mike Wood, the Tory MP for Dudley South, says he had a lengthy phone call with Downing Street on Saturday evening to go through concerns he had over the three page summary of the Chequers talks.

The UK and the European Union have been negotiating Brexit terms for more than a year now and have been hoping to agree broad aims for their future relationship in October. As we developed our policy on Brexit, I have allowed Cabinet colleagues considerable latitude to express their individual views.

The government has battled to find a way of tackling these while maintaining access to European Union markets and avoiding burdensome customs arrangements that could damage businesses, with some leading companies warning they could cut investment or withdraw from Britain in the wake of a no-deal Brexit.
