Boris Johnson resignation letter on Brexit: 'That dream is dying'

David Davis has walked from Theresa May's government

Government Ministers Attend The Weekly Cabinet Meeting

Both Mr Johnson and Mr Davis had signed up on Friday to Mrs May's blueprint for Brexit at an all-day summit at Chequers which the Prime Minister believed had secured Cabinet unity behind her proposals.

Interrupted only by a near-death electoral experience when Conservatives lost their majority in parliament in June 2017, May's tenure has been a never-ending party feud marked by frequent and intemperate public statements from several cabinet ministers, especially her now-former foreign secretary, Boris Johnson.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's Government imploded yesterday as Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson followed Brexit Minister David Davis in resigning over her plan for Britain's future outside the European Union (EU).

The newly appointed foreign secretary was previously the longest-serving health secretary in history and is seen as a stable figure in May's government, maintaining a "studious loyalty to the prime minister throughout her current difficulties", The Independent says.

"It would not have been a plausible thing to do and I wouldn't have done a good job at it".

The Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, has already written to Mr Johnson and Mr Davis to thank them and has also written to the new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab.

The timing could not be worse, as Britain faces a fresh diplomatic row with Russian Federation over a nerve agent attack, and ahead of US President Donald Trump's visit this week.

While other senior ministers rallied round her after the resignations which left Westminster reeling on Monday, rumblings of discontent among rank and file lawmakers remained.

"I have always liked him", he said, adding he had not spoken with Prime Minister May since Johnson quit.

But, appearing in the House of Commons, a confident-sounding May defended her Brexit proposals. These have all but stalled because of her reticence of show her cards until now for fear of angering one of the two main factions of her party.

But former Conservative leader William Hague, writing in the Daily Telegraph, said May´s critics had failed to produce "any credible alternative proposal" and warned that further resignations could put Brexit itself "at risk".

"It is the ultimate betrayal of our democracy and people's belief in it".

The controversy didn't stop Mr Johnson from publicly slamming the government's Brexit approach again months later.

In a meeting with her party late Monday, Mrs May raised the prospect that failure to back her could see the collapse of her government and give the left-wing opposition Labour party a route into power.

Mr Varadkar added that if the United Kingdom relaxes its red lines, then the European Union should be able to do the same and "we are perhaps entering that space".

Walkouts on Tuesday by a pair of little-known Tory vice-chairs, Ben Bradley and Maria Caulfield, did not have the impact of Johnson's resignation, and the party's campaign machine will roll on smoothly without them. Three junior ministers also quit their posts.

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".

But the chaos surrounding the government will not die down any time soon-the contingent supporting a hard Brexit is more angry than ever.

The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper, said there had been "blunder after blunder" by May.
