Bookies put Boris Johnson in first place for next Prime Minister

Patty Aguilar | 10 July, 2018, 14:44

May's proposals for a future European Union relationship after Britain departs from the bloc next March had taken two years of internal government wrangling to agree, but within 48 hours Johnson and Davis had resigned saying they could not back the plans.

Matt Hancock has been promoted from the Culture department to Health Secretary as the premier digs in for an attritional battle with Eurosceptics.

Britain's Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox leaves Downing Street after this morning's cabinet meeting in Westminster, London, Britain, July 10, 2018.

Eight Cabinet ministers have now departed Mrs May's team over the past year.

Mrs May surprised many by appointing him to the Foreign Office, a position he has frequently used to forge a distinctive position on Brexit, including by setting out his own "red lines" just days before the PM's crucial speech to Conservative conference past year. Europe's most powerful leader, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, arrives in London later on Tuesday.

Theresa May faces a mortal threat to her leadership of the Conservative Party and Government today. "I would be surprised if one [a leadership contest] is precipitated and if there is, I suspect she'd win it", he told LBC Radio.

Chairman Graham Brady is obliged to call a vote if 15 per cent of Tory MPs write to him calling for one - now 48 MPs.

"It seems to me we're giving too much away, too easily, and that's a risky strategy", he told BBC Radio 4's Today program.

Davis is the sixth Cabinet minister to resign from May's government in eight months, following former worldwide development secretary Priti Patel, defence secretary Michael Fallon, her deputy Damian Green, education secretary Justine Greening, and home secretary Amber Rudd. He also warned that Britain was "headed for the status of a colony" within the bloc.

More calls came in to dispatch and said the man was threatening people, claiming to have a gun and kept reaching into his pockets. The sheriff's office said authorities were called to the Lolo Hot Springs area of Montana's Lolo National Forest at about 8 p.m.

Mrs May is expected to tell MPs that the strategy agreed on at Chequers is the "right Brexit" for Britain.

But Mrs May hit back in her icy letter accepting his resignation - effectively accusing him of signing up to the Chequers plan before walking away.

"Perhaps, one side effect of my departure might be to put a little pressure on the government not to make any other concessions and I will keep arguing to say there is a better way to do it than this", Davis said.

Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said the government was incapable of delivering Brexit.

It comes right before Donald Trump's first visit to Britain as USA president on Friday, as well as the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels tomorrow.

British Prime Minister Theresa May holds a meeting of her cabinet on Tuesday, seeking to unify her government a day after it was thrown into turmoil when two senior ministers quit over her plans for trade ties with the European Union after Brexit.

Mr Johnson even proposed a toast to the deal - and suggested writing a joint newspaper column with Chancellor Philip Hammond.

The two resignations have left May badly exposed and raised questions over whether she will stand firm in her commitment to pursuing a "business-friendly" Brexit, or will be faced with more resignations and calls to quit herself.

But in reality, she will be at the mercy of her party.
