Matt Hancock to replace Jeremy Hunt as health secretary

BREAKER GETTY IN Hunt was offered his new role following Johnson's resignation
Bennie Garza | 10 July, 2018, 17:48

A statement from Downing Street this evening said: "The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of the Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs." and "pleased to approve the appointment of the Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care". She said she would present a detailed paper on Thursday on the government's negotiating position for a post-Brexit relationship with the EU.

Jeremy Hunt has been named as the new foreign secretary, replacing Boris Johnson.

Besides their senior colleagues, Brexit junior minister Steve Baker and two ministerial aides also resigned from the government on Sunday.

Johnson slammed May in his resignation letter, accusing her of flying "white flags" of surrender in negotiations with the European Union.

The former management consultant was an ardent backer of Remain during the 2016 European Union referendum, warning that Brexit could "harm the NHS".

High-profile resignations can unleash leadership challenges in the United Kingdom, and Davis's prompted pro-Brexit lawmakers to demand May rip up her proposals - though they didn't call for her to go.

Mr Johnson criticised Mrs May's Brexit plans in his speech, saying they would leave the United Kingdom a "colony" of the European Union.

She said she and the two departed ministers "do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum" in which United Kingdom voters opted to leave the EU. Later, he told the BBC the United Kingdom was giving "too much away, too easily" in negotiations with the EU.

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.

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

May's decision to brief Labour lawmakers on her Brexit plan, an apparent effort to try to count on opposition votes if her own side lets her down, has infuriated euroskeptic Tories.

But in parliament, her words suggested she had chose to face down the dissenters rather than change her plans.
