UK: David Davis resigns as Brexit Secretary

16th century surroundings

The agreement hammered out at the prime minister's country residence resolves - for the moment - a long-running dispute within the Cabinet over whether to sever all ties with the European Union or seek a more limited Brexit to help businesses accustomed to trading with continental Europe without customs payments or burdensome paperwork.

Taking aim at eurosceptic ministers, he said: "No resignations means that the so-called Brexiteers in cabinet don't have a principle between them". "The general direction of policy will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position and possibly an inescapable one".

Elsewhere there was a sigh of relief that the government finally had a proposed deal to present to Brussels. But the British Parliament would have the final say over how the rules are incorporated into United Kingdom law.

Less hardline Brexiteers have suggested to Sky News that if the PM's proposals - including a common rule book in goods and shared tariff arrangements - were accepted by Brussels it might just be palatable to backbench opinion, but the European Union would ask for more concessions.

"We have also agreed a new business-friendly customs model with freedom to strike new trade deals around the world", the British prime minister said, adding that her government would publish a white paper next week to set out more details.

The Prime Minister said the strategy thrashed out with the Cabinet would make sure Brexit was delivered "because I won't let people down".

"If she sticks with this deal I would have no confidence in it, and if the Prime Minister sticks with this deal I would have no confidence in her", he told the BBC.

A source close to Mr Johnson said that the only people who would be pleased if he stepped down would be European Union commission president Jean Claude Juncker, German chancellor Angela Merkel and European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier. According to Britain's Financial Times, "Mrs".

David Davis, British Brexit Secretary, resigns: United Kingdom media reports
I am also unpersuaded that our negotiating approach will not just lead to further demands for concessions. Hours after Theresa May's Chequers peace summit, her Brexit strategy is once again left in tatters.

The British Prime Minister Theresa May asserted her personal authority on Friday by persuading her entire 29-strong cabinet to agree to a relatively soft Brexit after a marathon session at Chequers, her country residence in Buckinghamshire. Mr Johnson's allies said on Saturday he decided not to quit as he wanted to remain in government to fight for the kind of Brexit he campaigned for.

For now, May, who has been written off by critics regularly since losing her Conservative Party's parliamentary majority in an ill-judged election past year, will be buoyed by the hard-won agreement. Some lawmakers have already expressed their misgivings. "The Tory Eurosceptics are a waste of space".

"We are faced with becoming a vassal state of the European Union, they have us exactly where they want us - unable to compete, taking enormous quantities of their products at inflated prices, protected from global competition by the fortress Europe tariff and regulatory wall and impeded from doing trade deals around the globe", added Longworth.

Asked if the prime minister could survive.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove backed the new Government Brexit plan today and praised May's strength as PM. "It was the right thing to do".

Andrea Jenkyns said Mr Davis' departure was "fantastic news" and hailed Mr Baker as "another courageous and principled MP".

Peter Bone welcomed Mr Davis' resignation, saying it was "a principled and courageous decision". I take my hat off to you. We needed Boris to emulate his hero Churchill. Remainers will be angry that the apparent agreement that came from Chequers has been trashed, while Leavers who had to swallow their own opposition to the proposal will feel betrayed.

On the worldwide markets, sterling slipped by a third of a cent against the dollar to $1.3288 in early trading.
