Rebuffing claims that her proposals make too many concessions to the EU, May said "this is the right Brexit" and would leave Britain free to make its own laws and trade deals.

May's office said in a terse statement that the prime minister had accepted Johnson's resignation.

The Guardian newspaper quoted an unnamed Conservative MP saying the resignations would continue in protest against her plan to keep strong economic ties with the European Union - dubbed the Chequers plan after her country retreat where it was agreed last week. Sky Sources confirmed that Johnson repeatedly used the phrase at the away day at Chequers, the prime minister's country retreat.

Where do the resignations of Boris Johnson and David Davis leave the Prime Minister? It would also necessitate the imposition of a border in Northern Ireland-a red-line issue for the European Union, and something May has committed to avoiding.

On Monday, May defended Friday's deal, which would allow for some ties between Britain and the EU.

DAVID Davis has resigned as Brexit Secretary in a major blow to Theresa May.

The BBC reported that Johnson said in his resignation letter that May has put off decisions about how Britain will leave the European Union, warning that "we appear to be heading for a semi-Brexit, with large parts of the economy still locked in the EU system, but with no United Kingdom control over that system".

It said May now faces "the spectre of a leadership challenge", but it was "possible that after a period of resignations and political blood-letting, the Conservative Party will fall behind the prime minister". Three junior ministers also quit their posts. May appointed staunchly pro-Brexit lawmaker Dominic Raab to replace Davis, who insisted he did not want his resignation to become a rallying cry for the prime minister's ouster. "I won't be encouraging people to do that, I think it's the wrong thing to do".

Ministers leaving the meeting appeared happy, with chief Treasury secretary Liz Truss telling Sky News it was a "very good meeting, plans are going very well".

"I'd have to deliver this".

She told Sky News: "I'm happy to hear it will be published on Thursday". "That's not a tenable position".

However, at a meeting with her Conservative Party lawmakers, she was cheered and applauded by many as she warned them that internal squabbling could pave the way for socialist opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn to take power instead.

But don't worry: His real resignation letter was just more subtle with the clues.

And asked whether Mrs May would fight a no-confidence vote if one was called, a senior Number 10 source said simply: "Yes".
