Theresa May's Chequers dream is slowly dying, suffocated by its Brexit critics

The move came amid warnings that the PM was facing "guerrilla warfare" in Parliament from angry Tory backbenchers determined to block her plans.

A minister quoted the prime minister as saying, "If we don't pull together, we risk the election of Jeremy Corbyn as prime minister", The Guardian reported.

Boris Johnson has said he "just wants to get out of the EU" and that Britain can worry about the details "later" a former No10 aide has said. Within a day, Johnson-a chief advocate for a hard Brexit, with long-held ambitions for May's job-had submitted his own resignation.

Writing for the Metro, he said: "The departure of two bombastic characters, both of whom have caused constant headaches for Number 10, has forced May into a position that many of her allies have always been urging her to take: one of defiance".

"Brexit will be softened, which is to say undermined: turned from a passionate cry for democratic independence into a bureaucratic exercise of pursuing slow-motion semi-divergence from the European Union while actually kind of staying in", O'Neill wrote. Culture secretary Matt Hancock has replaces Hunt as health secretary.

A week ago Britain had strict red lines on Brexit, pro-EU lawmakers were "traitors" and the plan for Britain's future ties with the European Union after leaving the bloc were a jumble of platitudes and overweening ambition.

Tory Nigel Evans said Olly Robbins, the PM's top European Union adviser, appears to have "taken control of the entire negotiation" and "rammed us further away from the Brexit" people voted for.

"Dreaming is good, probably for all of us, but we have to deal with the real world", he said.

Davis' resignation undermined May's already fragile government, which has lost several ministers in 2017 over sexual misconduct allegations and other scandals.




Pro-Europeans want to retain close economic ties with the bloc and its market of 500 million people, while some Brexit supporters want a clean break to make it possible to strike new trade deals around the world.

"It is a vision that respects the result of the referendum (vote to leave), and delivers a principled and practical Brexit", Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said in the foreword.

The European Commission declined to comment on Mr Davis's exit but Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, said he hoped a change in faces might lead to a change in policy.

There were also junior ministerial resignations as well, according to The Guardian.

Nigel farage has threatened to return as the leader of the UKIP unless Brexit is "put back on track" and he also accused May of betraying the people.

There appears to be no immediate challenge to Ms May's leadership, as the Brexit hardliners simply do not have the numbers, and her Conservative Party seems set to weather this storm, despite deep divisions on the issue.

In a foreword to the white paper to be published on Thursday, Mr Raab is expected to say: "In line with our modern industrial strategy, this Government is determined to make sure the United Kingdom is ready to lead the industries of the future and seize the opportunities of global trade". Along with that, Germany gave an immediate thumbs down to the latest Brexit proposals.

Caulfield said in her resignation letter that "I cannot support the direction of travel in the Brexit negotiations, which in my view do not fully embrace the opportunities that Brexit can provide".
