David Davis dramatically quits as Brexit Secretary

He said her vision amounted to a "semi-Brexit" and she was "flying the white flags" before the battle for a good deal from Brussels had truly begun.

May's Europe adviser, Oliver Robbins, has mostly led the talks in Brussels, with the Brexit minister taking a coordinating role at home.

Mr Davis's departure was met with dismay from business leaders who had called for greater certainty over the Brexit process.

May will get a sense of where she stands on Monday when the Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) returns to the House of Commons.

Times columnist Rachel Sylvester said May's authority "is utterly destroyed at the very moment she needs the credibility to assert herself in the negotiations with the EU".

The plan seeks to keep the United Kingdom and the European Union in a free-trade zone for goods, and commits Britain to maintaining the same rules as the bloc for goods and agricultural products.

Born Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, he is also known for his displays of questionable sportsmanship.

"But the legacy of Brexit can not be a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland that unpicks the historic Belfast Agreement".

A second - reportedly backed by the DUP - would force the British government to commit itself in law not to allow a customs border down the Irish Sea. "And it can not be the destruction of integrated supply chains and just-in-time processes on which jobs and livelihoods depend".

Political commentators were predicting Tuesday that other Conservatives will quit their jobs in the coming days.

May said Brexit negotiations with the European Union have settled virtually all of the withdrawal agreement, but the two models on offer from Brussels were not acceptable.

The Prime Minister was greeted by loud cheers from Tory MPs and shouts of "resign" from the opposition benches as she arrived to deliver a statement in which she said her proposals would deliver "a Brexit that is in our national interest... the right Brexit deal for Britain".

She also warned the Government could not accept an amendment by pro-EU Tories which would keep Britain in a customs union with the EU after Brexit.

He raised concerns, however around the UK's position on access to parts of the single market which has been ruled as red line for EU's Brexit taskforce. When that rang hollow, he then tried to compensate by lavishing May with compliments and, in the end, claimed that the slights were so insignificant that she had waved off his attempts at an apology.

Veteran Tory Eurosceptic Sir Bill Cash told Sky that discussions were now being held as to whether Mrs May's plans amounted to a "proper Brexit".

Supporters of a soft Brexit cheered on Theresa May's victory over Hard Brexiteers; only to see an own goal by Brexit Secretary David Davis followed by an opportunist move by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, potentially reverse an excellent result.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live: "These proposals will have to come to the House of Commons in legislation and the question is 'will they command support from Conservative MPs?'"

"An establishment elite who never accepted the fundamental right of the public to choose democratically their institutions are working towards overturning them".

"They'll keep going, one by one, until she either junks Chequers or goes", the MP was quoted as saying.

Mr Davis has ruled himself out of the running if there was to be a contest.

The Survation poll of 1,007 people found 38 percent felt the Brexit proposals agreed by the cabinet at May's country retreat of Chequers last week were a sell-out while 35 percent felt them to be the best deal Britain was likely to get.
