UK’s Hammond says he fully supports May’s Brexit plan

Brexit news- Theresa May and David Davis

It was also revealed from a previous interview Mr Trump had heaped praise on to the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, in the week he gave up his post.

On Sunday, Minister of Brexit Affairs David Davis and his deputy Steve Baker tendered their resignation.

There was no immediate statement from Johnson, another loud pro-Brexit voice within May's divided government.

Jeremy Hunt will take over from Mr Johnson as foreign secretary while housing minister Dominic Raab, a staunch Brexiteer, has been appointed as the new Brexit Secretary.

Johnson said in his letter that May's plan to keep close economic ties with the bloc means Britain is heading for a "semi Brexit" that would leave Britain with the "status of a colony" of the EU. "That includes a free trade agreement when the time is appropriate", Ms Bishop told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday.

Following a long weekend which started with extended talks over the country's future relationship with the European Union at the Prime Minister's Chequers country pad, an agreed strategy met the backing of her Cabinet.

"If the Government cannot govern, it is time for them to step aside for a Government that can".

"I welcome the resignations of Boris Johnson MP and David Davis MP from the Cabinet".

The resignations came just days after May announced she had finally united her quarrelsome government behind a plan for a divorce deal with the EU. The government said that would give Britain "freedom to chart our own path", though it would mean less access to European Union markets than there is now.

Sanders, for her part, said Tuesday that "we have a great deal of respect for the press". Trump has repeatedly called journalists the "enemy of the people".

The front page of the respected broadsheet Le Monde says Davis Davis "slams the door" behind him on his way out of the Cabinet and inside says his snub to May's Brexit plan "could not have been more violent".

May's proposals envision the maintenance of a free trade zone with the EU in what concerns manufactured commodities and agricultural produce and contain the idea of a customs union.

He also said "the general direction of policy will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position, and possibly an inescapable one". "It requires them to think again and look beyond the positions they have taken so far and agree a fair balance of rights and obligations".

"I think he would be a great prime minister. I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship", Trump said on Tuesday before departing for his week-long trip through Europe.

"I'd have to deliver this". It seems to me that there is a compelling case for expecting the value of the British Pound to rise over the coming weeks and months, with the Pound being undervalued as the market remains wary that the Prime Minister might still be thrown out of office by her own party in the meantime.

He said European Union negotiators stand ready to work through the summer if needed to reach an agreement.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 15 percent of Conservative lawmakers - now 48 - write a letter requesting one. Maybe we'll speak to him when I get over there.

But the pressure was heaped back onto the Prime Minister when US President Donald Trump announced the United Kingdom was in "turmoil" and that it was "up to the people" whether she remains in charge of the country - while pointedly adding that he considers Mr Johnson to be a friend.
