Jeremy Hunt replaces Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary

Theresa May

Hunt's post of health secretary has been taken over by culture, media and sport secretary Matt Hancock, as May struggled to keep control of dissenting voices within her top team.

The government of British Prime Minister Theresa May has been plunged into turmoil with the resignation of two senior Cabinet ministers, exposing a deep and perilous split over her Brexit strategy. She said she would present a detailed paper on Thursday on the government's negotiating position for a post-Brexit relationship with the EU.

UK Attorney General Jeremy Wright replaces Hancock as the new culture secretary, with backbencher Geoffrey Cox replacing him as the new Attorney General.

Indeed, we would expect European Union negotiators to be more open to May's strategy noting that shoring her up will avoid the likelihood of a hard-Brexit as posed by Conservative challengers.

In the minutes after the news of Johnson's resignation, the pound dropped to around 1.3270 against the dollar, a fall of more than 0.3% from it's opening price on Monday.

The BBC reported that Johnson said in his resignation letter that May has put off decisions about how Britain will leave the European Union, warning that "we appear to be heading for a semi-Brexit, with large parts of the economy still locked in the EU system, but with no United Kingdom control over that system".

Boris Johnson has quit as UK Foreign Secretary.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 48 Conservative lawmakers write a letter requesting one.

"Do you remember, we've warned this dirty multi-stage game will end badly for Theresa May's government?"

"Over that time, I've listened to every possible idea and every possible version of Brexit".

She said she and the two departed ministers "do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum" in which United Kingdom voters opted to leave 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. 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. Later, he told the BBC the United Kingdom was giving "too much away, too easily" in negotiations with the EU.

Johnson's resignation marks a major blow to the stability of May's government, with speculation it could collapse already rife. Many Brexit campaigners in her Conservative Party say she has betrayed her promise to pursue a clean break with the EU.

If she refuses to change course, she could face a leadership challenge.

The EU has been keen to focus minds in Britain.
