U.K. Foreign Minister Boris Johnson stunningly resigned Monday amid a growing backlash over Prime Minister Theresa May’s handling of Britain’s departure from the European Union.
Johnson, who was one of the lead campaigners for “Vote Leave,” resigned less than 24 hours after Brexit Secretary David Davis and junior Brexit minister Steve Baker quit their posts in protest of how the government is handling Brexit.
“This afternoon, the Prime Minister accepted the resignation of Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary, His replacement will be announced shortly,” said a statement from No. 10 Downing St. “The Prime Minister thanks Boris for his work.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Davis had quickly been replaced by MP Dominic Raab, who campaigned for the “Leave” campaign in 2016. But Johnson’s resignation marked a much more critical blow to May’s leadership.
“This is not the Brexit that he and Vote Leave promised. He has resigned because he knows that we won’t be able to diverge,” a source close to Johnson told the UK Telegraph.
Those pushing for a so-called “hard Brexit” have been increasingly vocal in their concerns about how May, who supported the campaign to remain in the E.U. in 2016, is approaching negotiations. A draft proposal released last week indicated that May’s approach would be much “softer” than Brexit campaigners would have liked.
Johnson’s resignation also comes amid a NATO summit in Brussels, and just days away from President Trump’s much-anticipated visit to the country — where he is scheduled to meet with May.
