Conservative Party vice chairs Ben Bradley and Maria Caulfield resign over Brexit

Nicola sturgeon

The next resignation came the following day from Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who informed the prime minister's office that he would be resigning before officially sending his extremely sharp resignation letter, in which he feared the U.K.'s new Brexit plan or "the government's song to sing", would leave the country an European Union colony and would represent the death of the "Brexit dream".

Mr Barrow, who stepped down as leader of the authority in December 2015, tweeted his thoughts on the latest Brexit fallout in the wake of David Davis' Sunday night resignation and before Boris Johnson stepped down from his position as Foreign Secretary.

"I have a very good relationship".

"I have no idea, Sir Graham Brady has made it very clear that he will not give anybody any indication of how many letters he has received", he said.

He said the political fall out from the resignation is something that the PM would have thought about and planned for and for him to comment on it, would not be helpful. "That has been a fact for decades in terms of how some people in the Conservative Party view the European Union and Britain's place with it.

I have always liked him", he said, adding he had not spoken with Prime Minister May since Johnson quit. "Now there is obviously some kick-back in relation to that". "Theresa May is also to blame, she says "Brexit means Brexit" then produces a deal which doesn't mean Brexit", she said. The British government is due to publish a detailed version of the plans on Thursday.

John Major, her successor, negotiated the 1992 Maastricht Treaty for the United Kingdom but nearly failed to ratify it due to pressure from the Conservatives' Eurosceptic wing. But then, in these febrile times, anyone who says anything about Donald Trump that isn't condemnatory is accused of being an appeaser, or of "normalising fascism".

Former Shropshire Council leader Keith Barrow has threatened to leave the Conservative Party if Theresa May continues as Prime Minister.

Johnson spoke for angry Conservative Brexit-backers in his resignation letter to May when he complained that voters weren't going to get the things he'd promised them when he campaigned to leave the EU. I have said that and so has the Taoiseach. I think he has been doing an excellent job.

During a day packed with high-profile Cabinet departures, she also faced down her Conservative party's powerful 1922 Committee of backbench MPs, amid rumours they were close to getting the 48 signatures needed to trigger a no-confidence vote that could have removed her as Prime Minister. "I think the electorate will get their revenge at the ballot box".

Mr Davis has ruled himself out of the running if there was to be a contest.

"I think for some time now the British negotiation has been out of No 10 (Downing Street)". In addition to the prime minister's office, the three most critical cabinet positions - Treasury, the Foreign Office and the Home Office - are safely in the hands of those who voted to remain in the EU. 'He has been very nice to me.

As head of the Brexit ministry, Davis was the public face of Britain's negotiating team, but in reality had been overshadowed for months by May and her aides.

While the Irish government welcomed Friday's agreement, they said "a lot of work" remains, "particularly from the British side".

With Britain due to leave the 28-nation bloc on March 29, 2019, European Union officials have warned Britain repeatedly that time is running out to seal a deal spelling out the terms of the divorce and a post-split relationship. It's important to maintain the well preserved unity of the 27 member states.

"I don't see them pulling the plug on her", Polly Mackenzie, director of cross-party think-tank Demos, told AFP.
