Boris Johnson blasted for posing for resignation photos

Jacob Rees-Mogg

The Guardian says the PM has faced down Brexit rebels "for now", reporting May's warning that divided cabinets lose elections.

He warned that, as a result, the country risks heading for a "semi-Brexit".

The Times reports Johnson's "scathing" attack on May in which he accused her of raising the white flag to Brussels and transforming Britain into a "colony" of the EU.

His resignation was announced hours after Brexit Secretary David Davis quit his role in the government.

In a two-page letter to Prime Minister Theresa May, the leading Brexit supporter said that while he initially accepted the government's proposal, it now "sticks in the throat".

The ex-Foreign Secretary left the foreign secretary's official residence at Carlton Gardens, central London, late in the evening, accompanied by his wife Marina Wheeler, and without speaking to waiting reporters.

Johnson's resignation - more perilous for May given his seniority in government - came Monday afternoon local time, just before the Prime Minister was due to make a scheduled statement in Parliament.

Jeremy Hunt, who has been health secretary for the past six years, was a Remain campaigner in the 2016 European Union referendum.

But as Foreign Secretary in May's government, he was prone to gaffes and criticized for not being on top of his brief.

"Two secretaries of state have resigned and still we are no clearer as to what our future relationship with our nearest neighbors and biggest trading partners will be".

European Union officials on Monday sounded unimpressed by Davis's resignation, saying he had been once to Brussels over the past two months, even though he is the top negotiator for the UK.

It follows concerns raised over Theresa May's Brexit plan which she forward at Chequers on Friday. Yet if Brexit is to mean anything, it must surely give ministers and Parliament the chance to do things differently to protect the public.

The departures, hailed by eurosceptic MPs in the ruling Conservative party, triggered speculation that May could face an imminent leadership contest. Mr Rees-Mogg refused to support her and said that "she would be well advised to revisit her Brexit policy".

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.
