Theresa May Loses Pro-Brexit Ministers

Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resign.

  • Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson have resigned from Theresa May’s government.
  • Both opposed her Brexit strategy of seeking as close as trade relationship with the EU as possible without accepting free movement of EU nationals.
  • It is unclear if the EU could accept that proposal, but it went too far for Davis and Johnson anyway.
  • Steve Baker, a junior minister in the Department for Exiting the EU, also resigned.
  • May could now face a leadership challenge.
