REPORT: Theresa May’s Brexit Secretary Suddenly RESIGNS


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by DailyMail:

Theresa May scrambled to shore up her warring Cabinet today after David Davis dramatically quit saying he could not back her ‘weak’ Brexit plan.

The Prime Minister drafted in Dominic Raab to replace Mr Davis as she tries to quell as a massive backlash from Eurosceptics that threatens to sweep her out of Downing Street.

The article goes on to state the following:

In an excoriating verdict on the ‘third way’ trade plan Mrs May forced through Cabinet on Friday night, Mr Davis said she had persistently undermined him and put the UK on track to be humbled by Brussels.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Mr Davis said his ‘conscience’ would not allow him to continue as he did not ‘believe’ in the plan. He insisted he had been ‘clear’ at the Chequers showdown that he did not back the blueprint and the EU would just take advantage.

‘They’ll take what we offer already and then demand some more. That’s what I fear,’ he said.

‘We’re giving too much away, too easily, and that to me is a very dangerous strategy.’

The appointment of Mr Raab, seen as a ‘true believer’ in Brexit, will calm nerves on the Tory benches somewhat. A Leave campaigner in the referendum, he has been promoted from housing minister.

But all eyes are now on Boris Johnson to see whether he will follow the example of Mr Davis. The Foreign Secretary is said to have branded the blueprint a ‘t***’ during the Cabinet showdown, although he has so far stopped of public condemnation.
