BREXIT BREAKDOWN: UK Foreign Minister QUITS, Theresa May Facing REVOLT

Boris Johnson and David Davis

Steve Baker, a junior Brexit minister, also resigned.

Three British ministers have resigned in the last 24 hours, throwing the UK's Brexit strategy into further disarray and putting greater pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May.

If May survives the domestic political turmoil, she still has to convince European Union leaders that her proposals can work.

"Unfortunately, the idea of Brexit hasn't left together with David Davis", he said, adding Johnson later in a tweet. "That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

The EU official, however, said that United Kingdom politicians take a "huge risk" if they enter a deep political crisis at home.

May told Parliament in a heated session that her plan was "not a betrayal" of the referendum vote. In her statement to members of Parliament, May acknowledged the splits in her government, saying of the ministers who quit: "We do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum".

The Prime Minister's latest political drama began late on Sunday night when Davis announced his decision to leave his post, declaring he could not support May's plan for Brexit agreed plan.

"What we are proposing is challenging to the European Union", she said.

After two hours in the Commons defending her plans yesterday afternoon, the PM faced Tory MPs behind closed doors - with many warning her offer gave too much away.

Of course, this could just be the start for this England team, like 2006 was for Germany. "Before I knew it, I'd missed my train". "What I would like is the England from before, but now they are very strong and we have to respect them", he said.

There was growing speculation about Mr Johnson's plans on Monday after he failed to attend a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergencies committee as well as a summit of Western Balkan nations being held in London.

Jeremy Hunt arrives for a Cabinet meeting chaired by British Prime Minister Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on June 5, 2018 in London, England.

Prime Minister Theresa May has defended her Brexit plans.

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.

Briefly addressing Johnson's resignation, May told lawmakers that she wanted to "recognize the passion that the former foreign secretary demonstrated" as he touted Britain's global ambitions.

Opposition politicians were quick to capitalize on May's troubles.

However, she is still thought to have support from the majority of the party - meaning Brexiteers could find it very hard to oust her. At one point, Corbyn seemed to draw a laugh from May herself when he noted that on Friday she had written to her party's ministers "to declare collective Cabinet responsibility is now fully restored". After the vote, he famously said that his position on Brexit negotiations amounted to: "I am pro having my cake and pro eating it".

If she refuses to change course, she could face a leadership challenge.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 48 lawmakers from May's Conservative Party request one.
