‘UK is in turmoil’, says president

This is so much bigger than Boris | British politics | For Europe, Against the EU

British Prime Minister Theresa May met with her shaken-up Cabinet on Tuesday (Wednesday NZ Time) as she tried to restore government unity after the resignations of two top ministers over Brexit.

Brexit betrayed or the end of May: What does David Davis's resignation mean?

"Brexit will be softened, which is to say undermined: turned from a passionate cry for democratic independence into a bureaucratic exercise of pursuing slow-motion semi-divergence from the European Union while actually kind of staying in", O'Neill wrote. "The direct consequences of that will be Prime Minister Corbyn".

But it soon began to unravel when Davis resigned late on Sunday and launched a no-holds-barred attack on her plan, calling it "dangerous" and one which would give "too much away, too easily" to European Union negotiators, who would simply ask for more.

"He's been very, very nice to me, very supportive", Trump said.

Amid growing discontent on the Tory backbenches, Brexiteer Andrea Jenkyns warned that more resignations could follow those of Mr Johnson, Mr Davis, Brexit minister Steve Baker, two Conservative vice-chairs and two parliamentary aides.

Sinn Fein MEP Martina Anderson said: "This faux outrage from the DUP and their fellow travellers shows their lack of awareness of what is actually happening on the ground already and displays just how out of touch and far removed from the Brexit negotiations they actually are".

Will Theresa May face a leadership challenge before the Conservative party conference in October?

Crocodiles are farmed for their meat and hides, but large and battle-scarred crocs are usually unsuitable for the handbag market. A trap was then set a couple of weeks ago near Katherine River - and the crocodile, dubbed "big fella" , swam right into it.

In the pro-Conservative Spectator magazine, Brendan O'Neill wrote that there had been "a Remainer coup" - a reference to Johnson's replacement Jeremy Hunt, who also supported staying in the European Union but says he has now changed his mind.

"Dreaming is good, probably for all of us, but we have to deal with the real world", he said.

Much as arithmetic suggests that they now don't have the support inside the parliamentary party to dislodge the Prime Minister, time is a-ticking for the hardline Brexiteers.

Hard Brexiters have pledged to mount a campaign of guerrilla warfare against May's government in an attempt to disrupt the soft Brexit proposal unveiled at Chequers, in which she proposed that the United Kingdom would share a "common rule book" of standards on food and goods after Brexit. The Conservatives now have 316 MPs so 48 of them would need to write such letters to challenge May.

Labour's deputy leader, Tom Watson, mocked the former foreign secretary, saying he had "a career ahead of him on Love Yourself Island".

"We deliver that Brexit and we do it in a way that protects jobs and livelihoods and meets our commitment to Northern Ireland", she said.

Mr Watson said Labour was keeping the option of a second Brexit referendum open in the case that Parliament could not decide a way forward, though he stressed that this route was "highly, highly unlikely".
