Jeremy Hunt named as new foreign secretary

"Mr Speaker, this is the right Brexit", she said to jeers from the opposition Labour Party.

Johnson's ministerial resignation followed that of former Brexit secretary David Davis (who was replaced by fellow Brexit campaigner Dominic Raab) and Steve Baker.

Writing on Twitter, he added: "Huge honour to be appointed Foreign Secretary at this critical moment in our country's history".

"And it would be a split coming from the top, not from the members of the Conservative Party across the country". Brexiteer Chris Green also resigned Monday evening from his post as Parliamentary Private Secretary.

Jeremy served as attorney general for England and Wales since 2014 but will now turn his attention to media, culture, and all things related to the development of digital radio.

Hancock was promoted to the cabinet as the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in a reshuffle in January.

Addressing parliament today, the Prime Minister told MPs: "We do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honouring the result of the referendum".

Brooks says he was able to get the permit extended twice but that at 11pm, the permit official said they would have to wrap it up.

Johnson was said to have decided not to quit over May's soft Brexit plan because he wanted to remain in Cabinet and fight for the divorce he wants, a person familiar with his thinking said after the Chequers meeting.

Davis resigned late Sunday, saying May's plan to maintain close trade and regulatory ties with the European Union gave "too much away, too easily".

The walkouts came after a weekend of crunch talks at Chequers over the weekend, in which ministers tried to hammer out the UK's Brexit negotiating position.

If Davis's resignation rattled May, Johnson's shook the foundations of her government.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 48 Conservative lawmakers write a letter requesting one.

"How can anyone have faith in the prime minister getting a good deal with 27 European Union governments when she can't even broker a deal within her own Cabinet?" he asked.
