UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigns amid Cabinet's deep divisions over Brexit

Mr Bradley said that the Brexit plan agreed by the Cabinet last week at Chequers would damage the UK's opportunities to develop global trade and be "an outward-looking nation in control of our own destiny" following Brexit. But within 48 hours of their publication, Davis had quit, saying she had already given too much away to the European Union, and Johnson followed.

May´s Conservative opponents could trigger a confidence vote against her if at least 48 MPs support it, but to actually force her from office 159 MPs would have to vote against her - a figure hardliners may not be able to reach.

Tusk is a previously served as Prime Minister of Poland from 2007 to 2014 and was a co-founder and chairman of the Civic Platform political party.

Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg retorted sharply and rejected Ms Miller's calls for a second referendum at the end of the Brexit process.

The former Tory leader said it was all very well to be a "romantic" and insist on cutting ties entirely, but it was 'of no practical use to the country'.

Echoing a comment he made to reporters after the earlier resignation of Brexit Secretary David Davis, Tusk commented on Twitter: "Politicians come and go but the problems they have created for people remain".

British Prime Minister Theresa May moved to reassert her authority on Tuesday after two top cabinet members quit and launched broadsides against her Brexit plans, winning support from many of her ministers including a leading eurosceptic.

"What the prime minister is proposing is a way in which we can ensure we don't have ... friction with our trade with the European Union ... and here is a practical way in which we can do that", Gauke said.

"The prime minister thanks Boris for his work".

And the former adviser to Mr Davis, Stewart Jackson, claimed there was a "plan" to curtail the role of the Brexit department and that Downing Street had blocked his reappointment under new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab.

Pro-Europeans want to retain close economic ties with the bloc and its market of 500 million people, while some, but not all, Brexit supporters want a clean break to make it possible to strike new trade deals around the world.

This was too close to the European Union for "Hard Brexiteers" such as David Davis - as many in her party have made clear in the days since and the likes of Johnson, who campaigned for Brexit and has been one of its most passionate cheerleaders since.

"It would be hard to say at this moment what the consequences would be, but the consequences would be very serious for delivering Brexit", he said.

Securing a U.S. -UK deal post-Brexit is something both Trump and May's government have heralded as being a major benefit of leaving the EU.

At a meeting with her Conservative Party lawmakers on Monday (9 July), 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.

Medicals due for Jorginho and Mahrez after bids accepted
Mahrez joined Leicester City in 2014 from French side Le Havre for a fee believed to be in the region of £400,000. Leicester will receive around £60m for the Algeria global - some way short of their £80m asking price in January.


This leads many to believe that Theresa May could be ousted over her handling of Brexit negotiations.
