Johnson’s resignation will leave United Kingdom policies on Russian Federation unabated, senator says

Their resignations came after the Prime Minister chaired the first meeting of her new Cabinet following the departure of Boris Johnson and David Davis.

Mrs May addressed the '22, warning that an attempt to topple her risked handing power to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Johnson said in his letter that May's plan to keep close economic ties with the bloc means Britain is heading for a "semi Brexit" that would leave Britain with the "status of a colony" of the EU.

The Guardian newspaper reported on Tuesday that hard Brexiteers in the Conservative party had threatened May with a "drip, drip" of resignations that would undermine her premiership. The British leader may have quelled talk of a leadership challenge, but some Conservative Brexit supporters are still incensed over what they see as her breach of a promise of a clean break with the EU.

One of the most sensitive is the border between the Republic of Ireland, an European Union member, and Northern Ireland, which will withdraw as part of the United Kingdom.

Opinions are divided in May's cabinet over the way Britain is handling its exit from the EU.

Mr Hill added: "David Davis' replacement, Dominic Raab, needs to look beyond the positions of his predecessor and prove himself to be flexible in negotiations to ensure the economic safety of the United Kingdom as we leave the EU". "It s a good thing that we have proposals on the table". "The fact the eccentric Foreign Secretary [Johnson] followed him confirms the presence of serious problems in the Theresa May cabinet", he said. "I'd have to do something I didn't believe in", he told the BBC.

The resignation is a blow to Prime Minister Theresa May, whose government is already in a weak position.

Even if she weathers this, she "faces the prospect of death by a thousand cuts" to the proposals in the Brexit white paper fleshing out the Chequers agreement. Still, her long-term future is questionable, says Gaby Hinsliff in the Guardian.

Referring to the plan outlined on Thursday in which Britain would aim to keep strong ties in trading of goods with the European Union, he said: "The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

"Boris Johnson is a friend of mine", he added.

"He's been very, very nice to me, very supportive".

"Unfortunately his contribution to the development of bilateral ties with Russian Federation was rather modest, to put it mildly", President Vladimir Putin s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

Former Conservative politician William Hague said the wider the gap in the cabinet is (regarding how Britain leaves the 28-nation bloc), the more likely it is Brexit will fail.

Among those rallying around the prime minister was environment minister Michael Gove - a prominent Brexit campaigner - who said he would not be resigning.

Under the blueprint, Britain would stick to a "common rulebook" with the European Union for goods and agricultural products in return for free trade, without tariffs or border customs checks.

Both sides hope to strike a deal on Brexit withdrawal terms and agree a plan for future trade ties in time for an European Union summit in October, ahead of Britain s departure from the bloc on March 29, 2019.

The Sun said the interview was conducted Thursday in Brussels, before Trump traveled to Britain.
