United Kingdom prime minister fights to stop Cabinet exodus over Brexit

United Kingdom prime minister fights to stop Cabinet exodus over Brexit

Number 10 confirmed the news that Hunt had been appointed to the office.

Mrs May will chair a meeting of her new Cabinet on Tuesday morning before hosting a summit with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Balkan leaders in the evening.

On Friday, May seemed to have agreed a vital Brexit plan at Chequers with her cabinet. That's partly because they can't be sure they have the numbers needed to defeat her.

Sir Graham has consistently refused to say whether he had received any such letters.

May's government was rocked overnight by the resignations of Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis.

Geoffrey Cox, Tory MP for Torridge and West Devon, has been confirmed as the new Attorney General.

Mr Buckland said there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately".

Downing Street made clear the PM would fight any attempt to oust her by rebel MPs.

Long before the Brexit referendum and its aftermath, the Conservative Party was split on Europe, and May has struggled to unite the warring wings under her leadership. It's also just hours since Brexit Secretary David Davis quit in protest over May's efforts to keep Britain closely bound to the European Union after the split, due in March. A third member of the government, Steve Baker, a junior minister in Davis' Department for Exiting the European Union, also resigned.

Renard Matthews Remembered by Family in Unique Way at Wake
New Orleans' WDSU-TV identified the man as Renard Matthews , saying he died June 25 after being shot in the head. While his family tries to deal with the bad tragedy, they have chosen to say goodbye in a unique, but loving way.

Mr Johnson criticised Mrs May's Brexit plans in his speech, saying they would leave the United Kingdom a "colony" of the European Union.

May was asked by an opposition lawmaker Monday whether she would contest a vote of confidence if one came rather than resign.

In other moves, Culture Secretary Matt Hancock takes over from Mr Hunt at Health and Social Care.

How are you feeling about community pharmacy's future now that Matt Hancock has replaced Jeremy Hunt as health secretary?

Earlier, staunch Brexiteer Dominic Raab was named as Mr Davis's replacement as Secretary of State for Leaving the EU.

The turmoil comes at the start of a momentous week for Mrs May on the world stage with her attendance at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Wednesday and Thursday followed by Donald Trump's first visit to the United Kingdom as U.S. president.

Labour's shadow health minister Justin Madders tonight said Mr Hunt had overseen "the worst collapse in patient standards of any Health Secretary".

"Britain is going to be a dependable ally, a country that stands up for the values that matter to the people of this country, and will be a strong confident voice in the world".
