Hunt new Foreign Secretary as Johnson quits over Brexit

After he sensationally quit David Davis warned the United Kingdom is giving "too much away, too easily" in the exit talks, but backed May to remain prime minister after his dramatic resignation rocked her premiership.

Boris's resignation letter is scathing. He attacks May's plans in terms that, one imagines, were sharpened after No10 purposefully made a statement about his resignation before he had published his own.

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.

Talking to Julia Hartley-Brewer on talkRADIO's No Nonsense Breakfast he said: "Over the weekend, I only raised questions on what had been agreed because I was surprised that members of the cabinet had gone along with something that seemed on the face of it was tying us to the European Union one way or another".

But while many Brexit campaigners were still hoping for a vote of confidence to oust May, it is unlikely that they have the numbers.

The politician had not learned his lesson, having previously tripped a schoolboy during a kickabout in London while mayor and having performed some sort of rugby tackle aimed at an opponent's crotch during a charity football match in 2006.

- How damaging is this to the Prime Minister?

Conservative MP Andrea Jenkyns said she believed that Mrs May's time as Prime Minister was "over", telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme that she wanted a premier who would "provide true leadership and a positive post-Brexit vision for our country".

France beat Belgium to reach final in Russian Federation
France and Belgium meet in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday night to decide who will become the first finalists at the 2018 World Cup . Zidane was sent off in what was his final match. " France has always been one of the favourites to win the tournament", he added.

"And we risk getting to a point in a few months time if Brexit happens, and I think it is an if rather than a when, in which one side here, the many people who regard Brexit as a disastrous error, will be pointing out the many problems that arise from it". Pro-Europeans want to retain close economic ties with the bloc and its market of 500 million people, while some, but not all, Brexit supporters want a clean break to make it possible to strike new trade deals around the world.

May defended her Brexit plan to lawmakers in the House of Commons on Monday, with Johnson absent from his usual place on the Conservative front bench.

The prospective free trade area and a new customs agreement "would prevent hitches on the border of the parties and ensure that both parties fulfill their responsibilities to Northern Ireland and Ireland", the document states.

European Union officials say they will respond to the proposals once they have seen details.

"In his resignation letter, Davis said the "'common rule book policy hands control of large swathes of our economy to the European Union and is certainly not returning control of our laws in any real sense".

He was widely reported to have told the Chequers meeting on Friday that putting a positive gloss on Mrs May's Brexit package would be like "polishing a turd", though he later joined other ministers in signing up to the package.

"We negotiate with the negotiators", he said.

"And it would be a split coming from the top, not from the members of the Conservative Party across the country".
