United Kingdom minister resigns over Brexit and backs another referendum

Jo Johnson resigns as minister over Brexit | London

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said: "We warmly welcome Jo Johnson's support of the campaign to give the people the final say on the deal and a chance to exit from Brexit".

"I mean volley to the left of the them, volley to right of them, and the Prime Minister charges on into the valley of death".

Cabinet ministers have presented Theresa May with a detailed plan for a no-deal Brexit amid increasing fears MPs will vote down her deal in the House of Commons. And everybody is thinking very hard about it.

Johnson suggested that other senior Conservatives might be considering their positions, saying that "many are reflecting hard about the deal that's looming and how they will respond to it".

'But it's obviously for each of them to work out how best to respond to those questions'.

Mr Johnson insisted his resignation was not an attempt to oust the PM.

Flash floods in Jordan kill at least 7
Jordan's education and tourism ministers resigned last week after the deadly school-bus accident in the flood-hit Dead Sea region. Its buildings have been used as sets for several Hollywood blockbusters including "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".

Jo Johnson, younger brother of former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, said the withdrawal agreement being discussed by European Union and British leaders would greatly weaken Britain and require the country to follow European Union rules without having any say.

It was "imperative" to "go back to the people and check they are content to proceed on this extraordinary basis". "No one can dispute that".

Jo Johnson may lack the bombast and first name recognition of his older brother Boris, but his surprise resignation as Transport Minister shows he shares the family knack for creating political drama.

Mrs May is also under pressure from the DUP over her Brexit plans, as well as Eurosceptic Tories. A second referendum on the departure is anathema to the supporters of Brexit.

Gross domestic product climbed 0.6pc in the third quarter, in line with analysts' expectations and up on growth of 0.4pc in the second quarter, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said in an initial estimate.

"The export growth. reflects an increase in both goods and services exports, with goods exports to non-EU countries growing more robustly than to the European Union", the ONS noted.
