British PM appoints Dominic Raab new Brexit minister

  • David Davis sent his resignation to Theresa May on Sunday night

Brexit Secretary David Davis has resigned because he was not willing to be "a reluctant conscript" to Prime Minister Theresa May's European Union exit plan, delivering a blow to a British leader struggling to end divisions in her cabinet.

May's office said in a terse statement that the prime minister had accepted Johnson's resignation and would name a replacement soon.

Brexit Secretary David Davis quit just two days after May announced she had finally united her quarrelsome government behind a plan for a divorce deal with the EU.

He said it gave "too much away, too easily".

Asked whether he would support a leadership challenge against Prime Minister May, Rees-Mogg refused to rule out the prospect but said a change in policy was more important than a change in leadership.

Davis's late-night resignation undermined May's already fragile government, which has lost several ministers in the past year over sexual misconduct allegations and other scandals.

Less than nine months remain until Britain leaves the bloc on March 29, 2019, and the European Union has warned Britain repeatedly that time is running out to seal a divorce deal.

Theresa May's government is in crisis. May appointed staunchly pro-Brexit lawmaker Dominic Raab as the country's new Brexit secretary.

Speaking at Parliament on Monday, Mrs May paid tribute to her outgoing foreign and Brexit ministers but said she and they "do not agree" on the best way forward in the negotiations.

Monday's move may look dramatic, but Viraj Patel, a currency strategist at Dutch bank ING, says that the drop is not the start of a major downward trend for the pound - for the time being a least.

The departures raise the stakes for May, who believed that she had secured a hard-won agreement with her deeply divided cabinet of ministers on Friday to keep the closest possible trading ties with the EU.

May's plan would create a free-trade area with the European Union for goods, to protect supply chains in areas such as manufacturing, while maintaining flexibility for Britain's dominant service sector. "Well done David Davis for having the principal and guts to resign".

Brexit-backing lawmakers have been angered by May's plans, saying they will keep Britain too close to the European Union and limit its ability to strike new trade deals.
