David Davis Resigns from the Cabinet sparking a Brexit rebellion within the Tory Party

 

David Davis, the Brexit secretary,  resigned from his cabinet post last night which is sure to throw on-going Brexit negotiations with the EU into chaos.

Mr Davis quit the government and told the PM that her policies could leave the UK in a ‘weak and inescapable’ negotiating position, two days after the cabinet had finally agreed a plan for Britain’s departure from the European Union.

Two junior ministers in the Brexit department, Steve Baker and Suella Braverman, were also reported to have quit the government last night amid speculation that further Cabinet ministers would follow Mr Davis to the exit.

It was reported by colleagues that Mr Davis ‘decided he couldn’t sell out his own country’.

Jacob Rees-Mogg said he would oppose Mrs May’s Brexit proposals and he and many other Tory MPs praised Mr David Davis last night.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson abandoned any principles he ever had and backed the proposals at Chequers despite claiming that defending the plans was like ‘polishing a t***’ during the meeting.

Michael Grove and Liam Fox have also decided to bury their principals and  both were busy on the media yesterday (Sunday) defending the Theresa May Brexit plan.

It is still unclear what decision if Andrea Leadsom will follow David Davis to the back benches.  An avalanche of departures would surely trigger a leadership contest in the Tory party.

To put it simply, if the Prime Minister cannot unite her Cabinet and convince them over the Brexit negotiations, she has no chance of getting the EU to agree to the terms.

This moment had to come when the Tory Party put a remainer in charge of Brexit. 

Theresa May has been pushing forward her latest Brexit plan as an ‘agreed cabinet plan’.  Judging from the feedback from ministers it must have been agreed with the narrowest of majorities.

  1. First class and ‘ on the ball ‘. That’s this article and it just goes to show that the British Democratic Party should be in charge of our Countries affairs. Personally and I know most Nationalists agree with me , there should NOT BE ANY NEGOTIATIONS AT ALL. WE VOTED TO LEAVE AND WE SHOULD LEAVE. Most Nations of the WORLD just trade under WORLD TRADE ORGANISATION RULES. THERE IS NO NEED TO BE IN THE E.U. AT ALL AND CERTAINLY IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO DEAL WITH FRANCE ,GERMANY AND THE REST. WE ARE BEING SOLD DOWN THE RIVER , AS THE SAYING GOES AND IT IS DISGRACEFUL !

  2. BORIS JOHNSON , FOREIGN SECRETARY HAS RESIGNED. Theresa May is trying to sell us out regarding Brexit. She is doing this by STEALTH. On the Customs Union , she wants an ARRANGEMENT that is very similar to what we have endured already. On Free Movement of Peoples , she is trying to get an agreement that gives priority to e.u.nationals TO COME AND live IN OUR COUNTRY. Finally she is trying to get an arrangement that makes ALL OUR LAWS THE SAME AS THE E.U. This means , same old same old. So , the position is clear , on these three main subjects that created our Brexit vote , SHE IS SELLING US OUT , AS EXPLAINED BY US , PREVIOUSLY !

  3. Further to my previous comments , I would like to point out that there should NOT BE ANY NEGOTIATIONS AT ALL and all we have to do is JOIN THE WORLD TRADE ORGANISATION to trade with everyone , including the e.u. this approach would mean that WE DON’T HAVE TO PAY THE E.U. ANYTHING . This also is something that I feel sure BDP MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS WOULD WANT !

  4. And now Boris too, so how longer before May is toppled? Surely her days as PM are numbered.
