Internet absolutely rinses Boris Johnson after he resigns as foreign secretary

  • David Davis leaving the BBC by taxi this morning

Just 48 hours ago, the former Vote Leave leader's position was that while May's customs plan, which would keep us bound by European Union rules in perpetuity, was a "turd", he was still willing to sell it.

In a pointed message, the President of the European Council Donald Tusk appeared to suggest that the resignations could spell the end for Brexit.

Johnson's departure came a day after David Davis, the British minister in charge of Brexit negotiations, also stepped down in protest of May's new Brexit strategy that pointed to a more "business-friendly" deal with the EU.

During a 12-hour meeting on Friday, May's fractious Cabinet - including Davis - finally agreed on a plan for future trade ties with the EU.

The SNP said Mr Johnson "should have been sacked for being a national embarrassment months ago". "Well done David Davis for having the principal and guts to resign".

She was not left in the clear by her MPs either, with challenges from hardline Brexiteers - with Peter Bone claiming campaigners had been "betrayed".

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said sources had told her that either Mrs May "dumps" the plan signed off at Chequers or "another minister will go, then another, then another, then another".

Mr Davis insisted the pair had not co-ordinated their resignations.

Davis did not urge other ministers to resign, saying he was in a unique position because the Brexit secretary's job is to sell the government's policy. "The Prime Minister thanks Boris for his work", said a statement from Prime Minister Theresa May.

"I'd have to deliver this".

He added that Brexit "is a complex area of judgement and it is possible that you are right and I am wrong" (a sentiment not likely to appear in any US official's resignation letter), but he feels the job requires an "enthusiastic believer in your approach, not merely a reluctant conscript". "That's not a tenable position".

"I don't think it's central to Foreign Secretary, but there you are".

Reports have emerged since of Tory plots to oust the Prime Minister with letters calling for a Tory leadership handed to the party's backbench 1922 Committee by Conservative MPs.

The ramifications that the resignations will have on this week's working visit are unclear.
