United Kingdom media: Most senior Brexit official quits government

  • Theresa May addresses Parliament on Monday after Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned

Many pro-Brexit lawmakers are furious at a plan they say will stop Britain forging an independent economic course.

The resignation of the Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain Boris Johnson may have a significant impact on the format process, the release of Albion from the EU (Brexit).

The delay has been partly blamed on deep disagreements within the Conservative Party over what shape Brexit should take.

They will demand the government scrap its offer to collect tariffs on behalf of the European Union when the Customs Bill returns for debate - a crucial element of the prime minister's plan for a "facilitated customs arrangement".

Mrs May's Conservative Party only has a majority in Parliament with the support in key votes of the 10 MPs from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, so any split raises questions about whether her plan could survive a Commons vote - and has also led to renewed questions about whether she will face a challenge to her position.

May must now quickly seek European Union support for her proposal.

"We're two years on from the referendum and the party of government seems more divided than ever", the Labour MP said.

In a surprise move, the secretary in charge of negotiating Brexit has announced his resignation, saying a proposal announced last week hands over too much power to the European Union as a condition for Britain's departure from the bloc. One other ministers in his department has also quit, with reports that another has done so.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a leading Brexit campaigner and the chairman of a group of eurosceptic lawmakers, said he was tabling amendments to the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill, which will be debated and voted upon next week. "That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

In response, May said she was looking forward to meeting Trump when he arrives on Thursday: "We'll be talking positively about how we can continue to work together in our special relationship".


"I've listened to every possible idea and every possible version of Brexit". "We will do this in a way which will be a smooth and orderly Brexit".

"I was elected to represent my constituents and the Prime Minister's team needs to be aware that backbench MPs won't sit idly by and allow a so-called "soft Brexit" with us being half-in, half-out", Andrea Jenkyns wrote in The Daily Telegraph. Bradley called on May to "deliver Brexit in spirit as well as in name".

"Now there is chaos", the paper said in its editorial.

This is far from the final deal, only the UK's opening offer to the EU's 27 other members. "Brexit must and will happen".

The major issues for Britons were concerns about immigration, sovereignty and the sums paid to the EU.

It's unclear, though, how long it would take to phase in the new customs arrangements.

The Head of Consumer Research for the parcel export experts ParcelHero, David Jinks MILT, says: 'While staying in the Customs Union would have been the best result for exporters apprehensive about new tariffs and red tape sending a parcel between the United Kingdom and EU; Theresa May's compromise deal at Chequers at least proposed a free trade area for industrial goods and a very promising sounding "combined customs territory".

"If people don't like this proposal, what is their alternative?"

"He's been very, very nice to me, very supportive. But remember, what are the options in front of us?"
