Airbus boss Enders backs UK PM May's latest Brexit position

"The Government now has a song to sing".

"I'm pleased David Davis has resigned, I'm pleased that Boris has made a decision to step aside and I think this Prime Minister needs to go".

- Who might take on the Prime Minister?

"We are leaving no stone unturned as we prepare to leave the European Union and this will not change".

In his resignation letter, Mr Davis said the "current trend of policy and tactics" was making it look "less and less likely" that Brexit would deliver on the referendum result and the Tory commitments to leave the EU customs union and single market. "And how has our Government secured Gibraltar's corner specifically 24 months on?"

Ireland's minister of agriculture has dismissed suggestions that the resignation of Britain's Brexit Secretary David Davis will throw the latest Brexit plan into disarray.

Strung from a zip wire high above London while clutching two British flags, a harness tightly gripping his suit, is how many will remember Mr Johnson.

Conservative Parliament member Peter Bone said Davis had "done the right thing", adding: "The PM's proposals for a Brexit in name only are not acceptable".

The responsibility for leading the negotiations should now go to an "enthusiastic believer in your approach, and not merely a reluctant conscript", he said.

The Guardian newspaper quoted an unnamed Conservative MP saying the resignations would continue in protest against her plan to keep strong economic ties with the European Union - dubbed the Chequers plan after her country retreat where it was agreed last week.

Speaking to James Whale on talkRADIO, he said: "Frankly, what came out of Chequers was a complete betrayal not just in the way people voted in the referendum but how they voted in the general election".

Under the Conservative Party's rules, "a confidence vote can not be repeated for another 12 months, so if she survived one, she would have the space to complete the Brexit negotiations", he said.

May's supporters are now reported to be anxious that more ministers could go and a no-confidence vote could be triggered.

According to reports, Sir Graham told a meeting on Monday night that he had not received the 48 letters required.

Asked whether May would contest a no-confidence vote, a Downing Street source said simply: "Yes".

Yesterday, when Johnson was supposed to be hosting a summit on the Western Balkans, Downing Street announced he had also gone. "The Prime Minister thanks Boris for his work".

The resignations rocked May in a week that includes a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit starting Wednesday and a United Kingdom visit by US President Donald Trump from Thursday.

Like Mr Gove - who infamously made a rival bid for the leadership after the referendum - Mr Johnson has always been suspected of aiming to lead the party and be prime minister.

Rees-Mogg said he expected May to remain in office at least until the official date of Brexit next year.

He was widely reported to have told the Chequers meeting on Friday that putting a positive gloss on Mrs May's Brexit package would be like "polishing a turd", though he later joined other ministers in signing up to the package.

Mr Davis's exit may embolden Brexiteer backbench MPs with concerns about Mrs May's leadership.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mr Johnson and Mr Davis had abandoned a "sinking ship", shattering the "illusion of unity" initially surrounding the Chequers plan. This is complete and utter chaos. The country is at a standstill with a divided and shambolic government.

"Brexit should be about opportunity and hope", Johnson said in a scathing resignation letter that was echoed in headlines in a number of Britain's national newspapers.
