Brexit blueprint should reassure European Union over strategy - Dominic Raab

Brexit blueprint should reassure European Union over strategy - Dominic Raab

May announced on Friday that her warring Cabinet had finally agreed to a plan to follow European Union rules for trade in goods, raising hopes that long-stalled talks with the bloc could progress.

Davis' resignation undermined May's already fragile government, which has lost several ministers in 2017 over sexual misconduct allegations and other scandals. Some euroskeptic lawmakers dream of replacing May with a staunch Brexiteer such as Johnson, a populist, polarizing figure who has never made a secret of his ambition to be prime minister.

He had reportedly threatened to quit several times as they moved towards closer ties with the European Union after Brexit.

El Pais says "differences over Brexit break the British government".

'The trouble is that I have practised the words over the weekend and find that they stick in the throat'.

A leadership challenge can be triggered if 15% of members of parliament in May's Conservative Party write a letter to the chairman of the party's so-called "1922 committee".

The European Commission declined to comment on Mr Davis's exit but Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, said he hoped a change in faces might lead to a change in policy.

There have been differences within the Conservatives over how far the United Kingdom should prioritise the economy by compromising on issues such as leaving the remit of the European Court of Justice and ending free movement of people.

"And we're going to be aligned to these rules in perpetuity".

Government unity began to fray within hours. Along with that, Germany gave an immediate thumbs down to the latest Brexit proposals.

In his resignation letter to May, Davis said of May's strategy, "This is a complex area of judgment, and it is possible that you are right and I am wrong".

Above a picture of her cabinet, including her new foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, and Brexit minister Dominic Raab, May tweeted: "Productive Cabinet meeting this morning - looking ahead to a busy week".

The U.K.is expected to release more details about its Brexit plan on Thursday.

Rees-Mogg said his amendments would try to force the government to put into law its aim that Northern Ireland could not be treated separately, to stop what some Brexit campaigners see as attempts to divide the United Kingdom to ensure there is no return to a hard border with European Union member Ireland. Working out how to keep the now invisible border free of tariffs and customs checks has been a major stumbling block in negotiations.

Less than nine months remain until Britain reduces the EU's membership on March 29, 2019. "I admit I stood shoulder to shoulder with DD to deliver Brexit and that annoyed the Europe Unit who are now running the show".

The Prime Minister enduring a bruising battle today as the two Cabinet heavyweights resigned over Brexit.

Steve Baker also resigned as a junior Brexit minister.

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