Warning Of Weak Uk Position Brexit Minister Quits In Blow To Britains May


LONDON – Brexit Secretary David Davis said on Monday he had resigned over “dangerous” British government plans for leaving the European Union in a blow to Prime Minister Theresa May that could complicate already fraught Brexit negotiations.

Davis, who campaigned for Brexit in Britain’s 2016 referendum, said that a hard-won agreement with her cabinet team of ministers had given “too much away, too easily” to EU negotiators, who, he feared, would simply ask for more.

His late-night departure, followed by one other minister in the Brexit department, raises the stakes for May, who was buoyed on Friday after thrashing out a deal with her cabinet to keep the closest possible trading ties with the EU.
