UK's May names loyalist Jeremy Hunt as foreign secretary

Bennie Garza | 10 July, 2018, 09:50

Tory digital minister Matt Hancock - known for his self-branded social networking app - will now takeover Hunt's portfolio as Health Secretary.

He was named foreign secretary hours after Boris Johnson resigned, citing issues with May's Brexit policies.

Boris Johnson's resignation was announced as David Davis was partway through an LBC interview - this was his instant reaction.

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.

May promised to deliver a "hard" Brexit when she came to power, but has since dialed back those aspirations following a loss of her Commons majority in last year's snap elections.

"Perhaps, one side effect of my departure might be to put a little pressure on the government not to make any other concessions and I will keep arguing to say there is a better way to do it than this", Davis said.

May said: "What we are proposing is challenging for the EU". They believe the proposals breach several of the "red lines" the government has set out, including a commitment to leave the bloc's tariff-free customs union.

He said Britain was heading for "a semi-Brexit, with large parts of the economy still locked in the European Union system, but with no United Kingdom control over that system". A "responsible government" has to prepare for a variety of outcomes in the negotiations, "including a no deal".

"This afternoon, the Prime Minister accepted the resignation of Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary", a statement from Downing Street said.

Attorney General Jeremy Wright, meanwhile, will be taking up the post of Culture Secretary.

The likelihood of a Conservative leadership contest now looms.

Labour MP Andrew Adonis said Raab's appointment could spell the "death" of the Tory leader, while writer and editor Hitcham Yezza said Brexit has now become even more "shambolic". "But I'm getting on with delivering what the British people want".
