British govt faces crisis as ministers resign over Brexit deal

Theresa May

Agencies/ LONDON

British Prime Minister Theresa May today suffered a huge blow following resignation of a number of ministers over a proposed EU withdrawal.

Her Brexit secretary Dominic Raab quit, saying he cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal.

Raab told BBC News that he quit the cabinet over what he called fatal flaws in the UK’s draft Brexit agreement with the EU.

He said the UK should be ready to risk a no-deal Brexit in the face of what he termed EU blackmail.

Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey and junior Brexit minister Suella Braverman have also quit.

Junior Northern Ireland minister Shailesh Vara, Parliamentary private secretaries Anne-Marie Trevelyan and Ranil Jayawardena also stepped down. However, Scottish Secretary, David Mundell, said he had concerns about Theresa May’s deal but he would not be stepping down from the Cabinet.

Prime Minister May took largely hostile questions from MPs in the House of Commons for nearly three hours over the agreement.

Theresa May had secured her cabinet’s collective approval for the agreement during a five-hour meeting yesterday.

May’s governing centre-right Conservative Party — which does not command a Commons majority — was already split between Brexiteers and those who wanted to remain in the union. Now, many on both sides of that divide oppose her deal.
