Updates as Theresa May meets her new-look cabinet

Mr Davis, who has been Brexit Secretary since Mrs May became prime minister in 2016, said he had made compromises since taking on the role, but this was "one compromise too far".

If Davis's resignation rattled May, Johnson's shook the foundations of her government.

Prime Minister Theresa May has defended her Brexit plans.

Johnson had previously served as mayor of London and a lawmaker.

It would have been amusing (though in keeping with the joke British politics has become) to imagine him laughing as he wrote: 'It is with deep regret that I must inform you...' all the while knowing his only real concern was the upcoming clash in Moscow.

On Monday, minutes after Johnson quit, May defended her Brexit plan to lawmakers in the House of Commons - with Johnson absent from his usual place on the Conservative front bench. Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom.

Britain is due to leave the European Union in nine months, and its governing party is still arguing about what kind of relationship it wants with the bloc afterward. The timetable increasingly looks overly optimistic, and European Union frustration with British division and chaos is growing.

Inside, the paper sets out the possible scenarios: a fightback from May, a Conservative leadership challenge from Boris Johnson or a general election which could see Labour take power.

Sure, three of her most pro-Brexit ministers-Andrea Leadsom, Chris Grayling and Michael Gove-went on the airwaves to defend the agreement. "I won't be encouraging people to do that, I think it's the wrong thing to do".

There are no recent precedents for two secretaries of state and a junior minister resigning in the space of 24 hours in protest at the government's central policy.

"I'd have to deliver this".

He added: "Since I can not in all conscience champion these proposals, I have sadly concluded that I must go". "That's not a tenable position". Under Conservative Party rules, a leadership race could be triggered if at least 48 of her MPs declared their support for one.
