British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing a possible downfall as PM and leader of the Conservatives after Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, and David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, resigned in the space of 24 hours. ⠀ ⠀ The two major cabinet members resigned in protest of May's Chequers Brexit deal, which was supposed to help unify her cabinet towards a 'soft Brexit.' She is currently facing open opposition from her own MP’s with a no confidence vote possible. ⠀ Mrs May has appointed Dominic Raab as the new Brexit Secretary, something which has been seen as surprising due to previous hostilities between the two politicians. Jeremy Hunt, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, has been named as the next foreign secretary. ⠀ PC: Metro⠀ ⠀ Tags: #novanews #theresamay #dominicraab #daviddavisresigns #daviddavisresignation #chequers #chequersplan #daviddavis #borisjohnson #resignations #borisout #bojo #brexit
