British Prime Minister Theresa May has met with her Cabinet as she tries to restore government unity after the resignations of two top ministers over Brexit.

The case, which scarred the nation, had headlined across the world, triggering big changes to laws on sexual crimes against women. Failing to get any relaxation in death sentence from it, a mercy plea before the President would be the last resort for them.


Some euroskeptic lawmakers dream of replacing May with a staunch Brexiteer such as Johnson, a populist, polarizing figure who has never made a secret of his ambition to be prime minister. His departure followed the resignation late Sunday night of the minister in charge of Brexit negotiations, David Davis. Hunt, who backed the "remain" side in Britain's 2016 European Union membership referendum, favors keeping close economic ties to the bloc after the United Kingdom leaves next year. She said she would present a detailed paper on Thursday on the government's negotiating position for a post-Brexit relationship with the EU.

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.

Leading proponents of Brexit called on her to abandon the deal struck with the Cabinet last Friday at Chequers, her country retreat outside London. Under Conservative Party rules, a leadership race could be triggered if at least 48 of her MPs declared their support for one.

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