More than 200,000 sign People's Vote petition after Cabinet resignations

Brexit news

He said Mrs May's White Paper plan, presented to Cabinet members at Chequers on Friday, meant that the United Kingdom was "truly headed for the status of colony".

Mr Johnson left the foreign secretary's official residence at Carlton Gardens, central London, late in the evening, accompanied by his wife Marina Wheeler, and without speaking to waiting reporters.

The Brexit white paper will still be published on Thursday despite concerns David Davis and Boris Johnson's resignations would thwart the timetable.

The former home secretary Amber Rudd accused Mr Johnson of "backseat driving" in the Brexit negotiations in September past year.

"And it would be a split coming from the top, not from the members of the Conservative Party across the country". The challenge is all very well for people to say I wouldn't do this.

His resignation comes just a month after he was heard launching a scathing attack on the government's Brexit strategy in a leaked tape from a private dinner with Conservative activists.

She said the alternative to the party coming together could be a left-wing Labour administration.

Many see him as a future leader of the Conservatives and as a prominent Leaver he could stop the rush to topple the prime minister from the Brexit wing of the party.

As of Sunday evening, however, the ACLU said the government was on track to reunite less than half of those with their families. ICE has three family detention centers with room for about 3,000 people in all, and the places are already at or near capacity.

Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was reassigned to the role of Foreign Secretary and Dominic Raab became the Brexit Secretary.

With 316 Conservative MPs in the House of Commons, Sir Graham must receive 48 letters to call a ballot.

"But the popular will, as manifested in surveys of public opinion, suggest that at present about 70 percent of the public judge that the Government is handling the Brexit negotiations badly, and it's been on a declining trend pretty much for the past year". If Labour were to signal it would definitely do the same, that could, in theory, leave May with a more serious problem: a looming veto over the divorce talks leaving the prime minister in an extremely hard position.

Asked if the PM lives to fight another day after the meeting, Mr Buckland said: "Oh, definitely".

"Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Liam Fox (the senior "Brexiteers") are seriously weakened and are no longer in a position to make serious trouble for Mrs May", he added.

Maasikas, who is the Estonian Deputy Minister for EU Affairs and also sits on the EU General Affairs Council, said the Brexit talks will once again be discussed on 20 July. The UK government is in turmoil, but that has been the case for more than two years. Nobody would assume they would go in and walk out with the same agreement.

Now, Downing Street believes that the hot water the prime minister is in today will shock European Union leaders into realising they need to start compromising themselves - not just perpetually demanding capitulations on the UK's red lines.
