Theresa May's new-look cabinet meets amid Brexit turmoil

Brexit news Getty Brexit news Theresa May is expected to appoint a replacement for Mr Davis on Monday

UK's new Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt today said he would be "four square" behind the embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May as her new-look Cabinet met for the first time after a string of resignations over her Brexit strategy left her government in crisis.

A far more familiar face here is Olly Robbins, the prime minister's Europe adviser.

The controversy didn't stop Mr Johnson from publicly slamming the government's Brexit approach again months later.

But despite all that, former Brexit minister David Davis didn't use his resignation letter on Sunday to secretly tell the nation: "It's coming home".

Mr Johnson said that the Foreign Office had heard a total of 24 "ludicrous fibs" from Moscow, after the United Kingdom government accused the Kremlin of being behind the attack in March.

But leading pro-Brexit legislator Jacob Rees-Mogg said "I don't think a no-confidence vote is immediately in the offing".

According to the Daily Mail, Mr Rees-Mogg said on Monday night that Mr Johnson would make an "brilliant" prime minister.

Matt Hancock replaced Hunt as health secretary, while Attorney General Jeremy Wright was appointed as minister of digital culture, media and sport, Hancock's old job.

Now, Downing Street believes that the hot water the prime minister is in today will shock European Union leaders into realising they need to start compromising themselves - not just perpetually demanding capitulations on the UK's red lines.

Strung from a zip wire high above London while clutching two British flags, a harness tightly gripping his suit, is how many will remember Mr Johnson.

Johnson said in his letter that May's plan to keep close economic ties with the bloc means Britain is heading for a "semi Brexit" that would leave Britain with the "status of a colony" of the EU.

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.

The government has battled to find a way of tackling these while maintaining access to European Union markets and avoiding burdensome customs arrangements that could damage businesses, with some leading companies warning they could cut investment or withdraw from Britain in the wake of a no-deal Brexit.

"We negotiate with the negotiators", he said.

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

Some Conservative Party lawmakers warned they would not tolerate a betrayal of Brexit.

"Nine ministers have now resigned from the two key Brexit departments since Article 50 was triggered".

Having made it to the final two candidates following the resignation of David Cameron two years ago, Leadsom was forced to pull out of the race after suggesting she would make a better leader than May because she is a mother.
