Boris Johnson Resigns as U.K. Foreign Secretary Amid Brexit Turmoil

It comes hours after Johnson resigned, writing in an open letter to Prime Minister Theresa May that the "Brexit dream is dying", as he said negotiations were being "suffocated by needless self-doubt".

Prime Minister Theresa May announced Hunt's new role in a tweet, adding that the queen had approved the change.

Other MPs in the region backed Mrs May following the resignations of Brexit Secretary David Davis, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and MP Chris Green.

According to the Daily Mail, Mr Rees-Mogg said on Monday night that Mr Johnson would make an "brilliant" prime minister.

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.

May responded that she was "sorry and a little surprised" by his decision but said she accepted it was necessary "if you are not able to provide the support we need to secure this deal in the interests of the United Kingdom". He said: "I am disappointed David felt that he had to leave the government".

However, the move appears to have reopened divisions within Mrs May's cabinet and despite Mr Davis being swiftly replaced by Dominic Raab and Mr Johnson by Jeremy Hunt, with Matt Hancock taking over as Health Secretary, there are suggestions that the resignations could spark a challenge to the Prime Minister's position.

Shortly after Hunt left Downing Street, attorney general Jeremy Wright was seen entering the building.

Solicitor General Robert Buckland said: "She talked about Corbyn, she talked about the alternative which is delivering the country to the sort of government that I don't think people have voted for and certainly any Conservative voter would be repelled by". Steve Baker, a junior Brexit minister, resigned along with Davis.

May was forced to reshuffle her cabinet after Boris Johnson put in his papers on Monday.

And she was given a reprieve tonight with news she will not face an immediate vote of no confidence.

Johnson and Davis advocate a clean break with the European Union, known as "hard Brexit".

Conservative MP Andrea Jenkyns said she believed that Mrs May's time as Prime Minister was "over", telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme that she wanted a premier who would "provide true leadership and a positive post-Brexit vision for our country".

"Politicians come and go but the problems they have created for people remain", said Mr Tusk.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mrs May should make way for a Labour administration if her Government can not get its act together quickly.
