Raab succeeds Davis as Brexit secretary

GETTY Brexit news Corbyn has called for another election

Trump isn't expected to directly address Brexit, nor were he and Johnson scheduled to meet.

"It is as though we are sending our vanguard into battle with the white flags fluttering above them", Johnson wrote in a letter that underscored his credentials as a champion of full-speed Brexit.

Mr Raab jumps straight into a heavyweight Cabinet job from the junior ministerial ranks - a mark of Mrs May's confidence in his ability to handle the sharp end of deliberations before Britain leaves the European Union in March next year.

Both the Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned in protest over the United Kingdom government's proposals for the ongoing negotiations with the EU.

This would mean that May's Brexit deal (if she gets one) would need substantial backing from the Labour Party to stand any chance of getting through parliament. But within 48 hours Davis had quit and Johnson followed.

Hunt, who had been the health secretary, is considered one of May's most loyal ministers.

In case there was any doubt on the matter, he added: "I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him". We look forward to continuing our close work with Mr Malthouse to solve the country's housing crisis.

Attorney General Jeremy Wright was appointed to replace Hancock as the culture secretary, with Geoffrey Cox becoming the new attorney general. "We negotiate with the negotiators", he said.

Of course, the goal is to come back here next year. "Rafa [Nadal] and Roger played all four matches on Centre, myself only one". He'll need to keep up that consistency, but at this point he's eyeing his fourth career Wimbledon title and 13th Grand Slam.

While other senior ministers rallied round her after the resignations which left Westminster reeling on Monday, rumblings of discontent among rank and file lawmakers remained.

Davis was a strong pro-Brexit voice in a Cabinet divided between supporters of a clean break with the bloc and those who want to keep close ties with Britain's biggest trading partner.

There were also junior ministerial resignations as well, according to The Guardian.

Raab, who had only served as the minister of state for housing, communities and local government since January this year, was already the 16th housing minister to serve since 1997, making Malthouse the 17th - and the eighth since 2010 - and leading many to regard the situation as a housing minister "merry-go-round".

"It is the right Brexit deal for the people".

And former Conservative leader William Hague warned party rebels that voting against the Prime Minister's final deal could result in Brexit being indefinitely delayed or halted altogether. As I said then, the government now has a song to sing. "The latest Brexit betrayal must be reversed", he was quoted as saying by The Independent.

Since then, two vice chairmen of the party have also resigned (Ben Bradwell and Maria Caulfield) have also resigned stating that they can not support the current government position and fear that their constituents would vote them out of parliament should the nation be faced with a general election on the back of the current Brexit position.

Even if the prime minister were willing to go that far, Watson's intervention was a reminder to Labour opponents of Brexit that the party has deliberately kept a second referendum on the table. Corbyn, addressing May in parliament, said her government should be ended if it was incapable of governing.
