‘UK is in turmoil’, says president

Stewart Jackson, former special adviser to Mr Davis, said No 10 had blocked his reappointment in the role under new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab.

After a dramatic day of twists and turns in Westminster, the prime minister addressed Conservative MPs for an hour, issuing a stark warning that divided parties lose elections and telling her party that "to lead is to decide".

The resignations of David Davis and Boris Johnson - who said they could not support Mrs May's proposed trading relationship with the European Union - have piled pressure on the PM and prompted speculation about a leadership challenge.

The ensuing political crisis was an nearly inevitable result, prompted by the resignations of two senior ministers, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union David Davis.

Britain on Wednesday geared up for the arrival of Donald Trump just hours after the US president waded into the Brexit crisis gripping Prime Minister Theresa May's government and portrayed the closest USA ally in Europe as a country in turmoil.

He has criticised May over her response to terrorism and approach to Brexit, and infuriated many in Britain when he retweeted a far-right group.

He added that Boris Johnson was "a great friend to Australia" and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in particular had a good relationship with him.

"I have no idea, Sir Graham Brady has made it very clear that he will not give anybody any indication of how many letters he has received", he said.

Johnson, a polarising figure and a former mayor of London, was a leading spokesperson for the campaign calling for Britain's departure from the European Union in advance of a June 2016 referendum.

Ostapenko also reached the quarterfinals past year in her best Wimbledon showing, losing to eventual runner-up Venus Williams . Kerber, who won the Australian and US Open titles in 2016, will be playing in the seventh Grand Slam semifinal of her career.

The former Tory leader said it was all very well to be a "romantic" and insist on cutting ties entirely, but it was 'of no practical use to the country'.

'I like Boris Johnson. But, after much speculation, Mr Johnson announced he would not enter the Conservative leadership race when his ally Michael Gove announced he was running. "We negotiate with the negotiators", he said.

May's supporters are now reported to be anxious that more ministers could go and a no-confidence vote could be triggered.

Fallon warned Conservative rebels that a challenge to May's leadership is "the last thing we need".

Over the past few weeks, a number of big companies, including Airbus, JLR and BMW, have talked of having to rethink investment plans after Brexit, while other businesses have said they lack information about how to plan for the future. "This policy will be bad for our country and bad for the party". In response to those comments, May's spokesman said that she "looks forward to showing Donald Trump the UK and talking to Donald Trump about the UK and is confident that he will leave the UK with a positive view".

But many pro-Brexit lawmakers are furious at a plan they say will stop Britain forging an independent economic course.

In doing so, the Gibraltar Government noted that Mr Johnson and Mr Davis have both been strong supporters of Gibraltar in Government and outside it.

Bradley said that the Brexit plan agreed by the Cabinet last week at Chequers would damage the UK's opportunities to develop global trade and be "an outward-looking nation in control of our own destiny" following Brexit.
