Government resignations are ‘rats jumping from a sinking ship’ says Hartlepool MP

  • BBC•GETTYBrexit news May delivered'fake sovereignty pushing Davis to resign claims Bernard Jenkin

He suggested that the prime minister's proposal was a betrayal of those who voted to leave the European Union and said that Boris Johnson would make a great prime minister.

May, who has tried to keep calm and carry on, said in a tweet that it was a "productive Cabinet meeting" and that she was "looking forward to a busy week".

That said, what probably appealed to Trump the most was Kavanaugh's "generous views of presidential immunity", which may become significant if special counsel Robert Mueller tries to subpoena the president for questioning.

The trans-Atlantic relationship has had some awkward moments since Trump's election.

Davis quit late Sunday, saying he could not support May's plan to maintain close trade and regulatory ties with the European Union, commonly known as a "soft Brexit", after the departure takes place next year.

In a resignation letter addressed to the British Prime Minister, Boris said 'that [the Brexit] dream is dying suffocated by needless self-doubt'.

He was enthusiastic about Johnson, calling him "a friend of mine".

Asked about Johnson, Trump said: "I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point".

But he says they had a difference of strategy and hoped the decision would send a signal to the European Union not to push Britain any further in Brexit negotiations.

Tropical Depression 2 forms in Atlantic Ocean, but don't fret
A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area. In 2017, there were 17 named tropical storms including 10 hurricanes , of which six were major hurricanes.

The resignation of British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson, along with three other MPs in recent days, only confirms our doubts.

The PM's pledge came after Mr Trump said the United Kingdom was in "turmoil", that meeting Vladimir Putin would be the "easiest" part of his European trip and that he wanted to meet his "friend" Boris Johnson.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 48 lawmakers from May's Conservative Party request one.

By picking Brett Kavanaugh as his latest nominee for the US Supreme Court, Donald Trump has gone for "the safest conservative bet he can find", says Edward Luce in the Financial Times. "The direct consequences of that will be Prime Minister Corbyn". Environment Secretary Michael Gove said Sunday that it did not contain everything he wanted but "I'm a realist".

In the two years since Britain made the fateful decision to leave the European Union, the UK's political climate has been tumultuous; one day's pretence at calm giving away to total anarchy the next.

President Trump has savaged Theresa May's Brexit plan, saying that it would nearly certainly kill a trade deal between Britain and the United States.

The plan agreed at May s country retreat at Chequers near London last Friday would involve Britain pursuing a "UK-EU free trade area" for goods that would involve regulatory alignment with the EU.

Virendra Sharma, a supporter of the Best for Britain campaign for another referendum, said that a "gang of Brexit bullies are threatening to pull the plug on the prime minister". Davis and Johnson initially backed the plan, before deciding they could not support it.

Sources told Reuters that some policymakers said an increase was possible as early as July 2019, while others ruled out a move until autumn next year. The British government is due to publish a detailed version of the plans on Thursday.
