David Davis, British Brexit Secretary, resigns: United Kingdom media reports

Brexit countdown Have minds changed Cautious DUP welcome for Chequers Brexit proposal
Ellis Copeland | 09 July, 2018, 09:44

Brexit Secretary David Davis quit just two days after May announced she had finally united her quarrelsome government behind a plan for a divorce deal with the EU.

The prime minister is facing an angry backlash from Brexit-supporting MPs when she addresses the House of Commons on Monday, before a meeting of the 1922 Committee of Tory backbenchers, in an attempt to get them behind the plans.

Davis is the sixth Cabinet minister to resign from May's government in eight months, following former worldwide development secretary Priti Patel, defence secretary Michael Fallon, her deputy Damian Green, education secretary Justine Greening, and home secretary Amber Rudd.

Peter Bone, a Eurosceptic MP allied to Mr Davis, told the BBC that he didn't see how the prime minister could get her Brexit plans through Parliament, and also that he couldn't see how she continue in her position if she didn't give into anger from the Conservative backbenches.

After an hours-long meeting at Chequers, May seemed to have persuaded the most vocal Brexit campaigners in the cabinet, including Davis, to back her plan to press for "a free trade area for goods" with the European Union and maintain close trade ties.

While May's plan for exiting the European Union has not been fully revealed to all members of her party - let alone to Parliament, the business community or the public - the brief outline that was released shows she supports a middle way of compromise with Brussels, keeping Britain closely aligned with Europe on standards, "a common rule book for industrial goods and agricultural products".

The staunchly pro-Brexit Conservative lawmaker Andrea Jenkyns tweeted: "Fantastic news".

As the minister responsible for the Brexit negotiations, Mr Davis was a key voice in the debate in the UK. Their stand may embolden pro-Brexit lawmakers to make a move against her.

Writing in The Daily Telegraph on Monday, Mr Rees-Mogg said: "If the proposals are as they now appear, I will vote against them and others may well do the same".

More than a third also said Mrs May should lead the Tories into the next election with 24 per cent wanting her to quit.

Britain's Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union David Davis leaves 10 Downing Street, London, January 29, 2018.

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

May won the backing of her Cabinet on Friday for a plan that would create a "U.K. -EU free trade area".

"[Under the agreement set out] we will be a rule-taker, we will not be able to make the trade deals we hoped for". Environment Secretary Michael Gove said Sunday that it did not contain everything he wanted but "I'm a realist". Previous year reports emerged that Davis said he meant to "retire" in 2019 and leave the transitional period of Britain's exit from the European Union to Boris Johnson, something later dismissed as a "lighthearted remark".

Some Brexit backers cheered Davis on.

Some Brexiteers dream of replacing May with a staunch Brexiteer, such as Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who in the past has disagreed publicly with his boss.
