At a meeting with Conservative lawmakers on Monday, she was cheered and applauded by many, having warned them that internal squabbling could pave the way for socialist opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn to take power instead. They are the first to quit over a fundamental difference on her Brexit platform, but one of them was the man in charge of implementing that policy.

Britain's foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, announced his resignation shortly after.

But despite all that, former Brexit minister David Davis didn't use his resignation letter on Sunday to secretly tell the nation: "It's coming home". While International Development Secretary Penny Morduant immediately welcomed the decision saying Rabb is "highly capable, across the issues, attention to detail, Leave supporter and pragmatist", others said Davis' resignation has plunged Britain into "absolute chaos".

"And we risk getting to a point in a few months time if Brexit happens, and I think it is an if rather than a when, in which one side here, the many people who regard Brexit as a disastrous error, will be pointing out the many problems that arise from it".

"I like Theresa May, I think she's a good prime minister", Davis said.

This has resulted in the Daventry MP becoming the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, replacing Mr Baker.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson leaves 10 Downing Street in London after attending the weekly cabinet meeting on June 12, 2018.


Despite his desire for a hard Brexit, Gove has not yet expressed any interest in rebelling against May, and as the newspaper notes, he "now has the opportunity to show he can be loyal and perhaps earn himself a promotion to higher office".

Responding to the news of Mr Davis' resignation, GSD Leader Keith Azopardi took to Twitter where he wrote: "The resignation of David Davis as Brexit Secretary marks the start of a long hot summer of uncertainty in negotiations to leave the Union".

In his letter of resignation, he described her readiness to accept a "common rulebook" with the European Union in trade on goods and her proposal of "impractical and undeliverable customs arrangements" as being like "sending our vanguard into battle with the white flags fluttering above them".

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 is fighting for her survival", Mujtaba Rahman, a managing director at Eurasia Group, said in a research note.

Asked if Brexiteers needed to put the PM's future to a vote of the Conservative Party, he replied "it may well come to that".

Russian diplomats were expelled from 27 countries in a move spearheaded by the United Kingdom, with Mr Johnson claiming that nations were saying "enough is enough" after "years of vexation and provocation" from Moscow.
