United Kingdom set to publish Brexit plan that sparked rebellion

Tuesday started as a "business as usual" for May as she chaired the first meeting of her new look cabinet following her reshuffle prompted by the resignations. She addressed Conservative MPs for an hour on Monday and issued a warning that divided parties lose elections.

"I am also unpersuaded that our negotiating approach will not just lead to further demands for concessions", he added.

May was forced to reshuffle her cabinet after Boris Johnson put in his papers on Monday.

In his resignation letter, Bradley, the MP for Mansfield, said the Chequers proposals would leave the United Kingdom "tied to European Union trade regulations" and he believed the outcome would be "the worst of all worlds" because it would "not deliver a Brexit in spirit". But leading pro-Brexit lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg said he didn't think she would face a leadership challenge.

Meanwhile an official on the British Overseas Territory of Anguilla welcomed Mr Johnson's departure, tweeting: "Good riddance".

Mr Hunt moves to the Foreign Office from the Department of Health and Social Care after having secured a £20 billion-a-year funding increase for the NHS. (Indeed, any Conservative prime minister who lost their majority in an election called because of massively favourable opinion polls wouldn't usually last a few days, never mind more than a year.) But these times are far from "normal" - and as it stands, it's hard to see who in their right mind would want to take over from May right now considering the mess they would inherit. 'There is a whole range of scenarios in which they get no Brexit, or an indefinitely delayed Brexit, or a change of government or a second referendum, ' he told Radio 4's Today programme.

Attorney General Jeremy Wright was appointed to replace Hancock as the culture secretary, with Geoffrey Cox becoming the new attorney general.

On Sunday, Minister of Brexit Affairs David Davis and his deputy Steve Baker tendered their resignation.

"London's course in relations with Russia is that aggressive and inertial, that one can hardly expect that one resignation, even of a foreign minister, can turn it other way", former Russian Ambassador in the U.S. and now a senator, Sergey Kislyak said. Three junior ministers also quit their posts.

Mr Raab, May's new Brexit minister, will suggest that such criticism was not justified.

"The white paper details our proposal in all of these areas, setting out a comprehensive vision for the future relationship". The British leader may have quelled talk of a leadership challenge, but some Conservative Brexit supporters are still incensed over what they see as her breach of a promise of a clean break with the EU.

"As I said then, the Government now has a song to sing. The latest Brexit betrayal must be reversed", he was quoted as saying by The Independent.

"I did give, Theresa, who I like - I did give her my views on what she should do and how she should negotiate, and she didn't follow those views", Mr. Trump told the Sun.

"How can anyone have faith in the prime minister getting a good deal with 27 European Union governments when she can't even broker a deal within her own Cabinet?" he asked.

Downing Street made clear the PM would fight any attempt to oust her by rebel MPs. "He s been very, very nice to me, very supportive".

"In that respect we are truly headed for the status of colony - and many will struggle to see the economic or political advantages of that particular arrangement", he said.
