UK's Brexit Secretary David Davis has resigned

Britain's Secretary of State for Departing the EU David Davis arrives in Downing Street in London
British media reported that junior Brexit minister Steve Baker had also stepped down.
Davis is the sixth Cabinet minister to resign from May's government in eight months, following former worldwide development secretary Priti Patel, defence secretary Michael Fallon, her deputy Damian Green, education secretary Justine Greening, and home secretary Amber Rudd.
In a resignation letter circulated by local reporters, Davis told May he has repeatedly disagreed with the government over the a year ago and that it is looking "less and less likely" that the government can deliver Brexit per voters' wishes.
In a blow to the beleaguered prime minister, Davis told May in a letter that the government's proposals for close trade and customs ties "will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position, and possibly an inescapable one".
May is due to brief lawmakers Monday on the plan hammered out during a 12-hour meeting at Chequers, the prime minister's country retreat.
The staunchly pro-Brexit Conservative lawmaker Andrea Jenkyns tweeted: "Fantastic news".
Their complaints raise a question mark over whether May can win backing in parliament for her plans if any deal with the European Union is agreed later this year, and some suggest several of them could try to trigger a leadership contest against her. On Friday she achieved a rare consensus in a key cabinet meeting at her Chequers country house estate on the way forward for the negotiations with the EU.
BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said she understands Mr Davis was "furious" after a meeting at Number 10 earlier on Sunday and "concluded he could not stay in post". The resignations further complicate that process, and put a question mark over whether she can get the backing of parliament for her Brexit plans and whether there may be a leadership contest.

A ceasefire agreement has been reached with leaders of armed groups in Syria's Deraa province, Russia's Defense Ministry has said. Russian military police would deploy instead with local forces overseen by Russia also deployed, they said.
Some 34 per cent thought she should keep hold of the reigns, 24 per cent said she should resign now, while 24 per cent said she should step down after Britain formally leaves the European Union in March next year.
Some Brexit-supporting legislators 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.
He said that felt he had to resign as he had no desire to be a "reluctant conscript" in the selling the PM's deal in negotiations with the EU.
Jacob Rees-Mogg, chair of the European Research Group of Tory Europsceptic MPs was being urged to run for leader, with one even naming him as "our Churchill".
Boris Johnson, a leading critic of the plans, spent several minutes at the Chequers summit spelling out his concerns, saying anybody defending the deal would be "polishing a turd" if they tried then to sell it to the party and the public.
Johnson has not commented publicly since Friday.
Brexiteer Cabinet minister Michael Gove admitted the plan was not everything he had hoped for, but he was a "realist" and the Prime Minister's lack of a Commons majority meant the "parliamentary arithmetic" was a factor in deciding what could be adopted.
Now some Conservatives who are pushing for a hard Brexit threaten that the prime minister could soon face a no-confidence vote.
