Another UK minister quits over 'travesty of Brexit'

The resignation is not just significant for the government's immediate plans, but also is yet another vote in parliament that could reject the Brexit plan, leaving the whole project in a crisis without any clear resolution.
With great regret, I'm resigning from the Government - I have set out my reasons in this article and the video below. "The PM thanks Jo Johnson for his work in government".
"To present the nation with a choice between two deeply unattractive outcomes, vassalage and chaos, is a failure of British statecraft on a scale unseen since the Suez crisis", Johnson said.
However he emphasised that a "no deal" Brexit, which the government insists is the only other option, would mean "chaos" that would cause disruption, delay and deep damage to the United Kingdom economy.
Johnson said the mooted deal had united him in "fraternal dismay" with his Brexit-backing brother Boris saying he could not support May's Chequers strategy.
A Downing Street spokesman insisted: "The referendum in 2016 was the biggest democratic exercise in this country's history".
He said the public should be asked to confirm their decision to leave the European Union and, if they choose to do that, whether to accept Mrs May's plan or leave without a deal.
May's office rejected his call, saying Britain would not hold a second referendum on its European Union membership "under any circumstances".
"Out of all the Johnsons I have known, he is the most reflective", he added.
Former Brexit secretary David Davis, who quit over Brexit in July, said Mr Johnson was right to describe the Government's proposals as a "travesty of Brexit". The critique from Johnson underscores the travails that May faces in getting any Brexit divorce deal, which London and Brussels say is 95% done, approved by her own fractious party.
"I think that MPs, MEPs too. will be looking at what that deal says", the Cabinet Office minister said.
His older brother Boris wrote on Twitter after the announcement: 'Boundless admiration as ever for my brother Jo.
But in a warning to his brother and fellow Brexiteers, he added: "Inflicting such serious economic and political harm on the country will leave an indelible impression of incompetence in the minds of the public".
Labour Brexit spokeswoman Jenny Chapman asked: "How are we meant to trust this government to deliver a good deal for the country when we have a Brexit Secretary who doesn't even understand the very basics of Brexit?"
"But I have every hope that the Prime Minister would listen to Parliament, because the alternative in those circumstances would be nearly certainly that the Government would fall".
