More misery for Theresa May as Australia vows to stick by UK

More misery for Theresa May as Australia vows to stick by UK

No one knows why this should have suddenly offended the principles of a man who once wrote that the "problem" with Africa was "not that we were once in charge, but that we are not in charge any more". To turn the whole country into a nudist colony, or a penal colony, or a colony of monks or shrubs, might seem perverse.

Johnson's dramatic resignation followed those of David Davis and his deputy Steve Baker over May's plans to keep Britain economically close to the bloc.

The tousle-headed blond Johnson is one of Britain's best-known politicians, and one of the most prominent advocates for Brexit.

The Prime Minister commented on the resolutions stating: "Today in detailed discussions the cabinet has agreed our collective position for the future of our negotiations with the EU".

Tories unhappy with the current Brexit plans need to accept the "harsh truth" that there's no other option, William Hague has said.

Andrew Bridgen became the first Conservative MP to publicly confirm he had sent a letter calling for a vote of confidence in the prime minister, it was reported.

While British Prime Minister Theresa May might have hoped her meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump Friday could draw a line under the spate of resignations she suffered early in the week, it is likely to only further expose her weakness and divided leadership.

Johnson quit with a resignation letter accusing May of flying "white flags" of surrender in negotiations with the European Union. "That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

Mrs May claimed Labour would "never deliver" a strong economy, adding the Opposition's policies would lead to a "run on the pound, capital flight and the loss of jobs for working people up and down this country". "He prefers the broad picture, the principles, rather than the minutiae", he said.

All eyes are now on the next move by Brexit hardliners in her centre-right Conservative Party.

With Britain due to leave the 28-nation bloc on March 29, 2019, European Union officials have warned Britain repeatedly that time is running out to seal a deal spelling out the terms of the divorce and a post-split relationship.

"I've listened to every possible idea and every possible version of Brexit".

Yet he and Johnson have shared a mutual affinity for one another, so his departure may put the already tenuous USA -U.K. relationship on even shakier ground, especially if May enters into conversations with Trump from a weakened position.

Both Rookie MP Ben Bradley, who only won a seat in the House of Commons previous year, and Maria Caulfield, elected in 2015, resigned as vice chairs of May's governing Conservative Party, citing disagreement with the soft-Brexit announced at a meeting Friday of her full cabinet.

"It would appear Mr Gove is now supporting a view that we, and many others, have said is best for the United Kingdom sheep industry - free and frictionless trade with the European Union even it is means accepting a closer relationship than some would like", Mr Stocker said. As an ardent Brexiteer he is unlikely to promote the type of Brexit sought by Sinn Fein and the SDLP, but both parties can take heart from his previous experience of constitutional issues and complex worldwide law.
