PM Theresa May In Big Trouble: Face of Brexit Boris Johnson Resigns as Threat to May Grows

Boris Johnson resigned from the U.K. government, tipping Prime Minister Theresa May deeper into crisis and increasing the chances she’ll face a leadership challenge over her Brexit policy. Johnson, who served as foreign secretary, was the face of the Brexit campaign. His exit sends a strong message to the 52 percent of voters who backed leaving the European Union in 2016 that their decision is being betrayed. It’s also just hours since Brexit Secretary David Davis quit in protest over May’s efforts to keep Britain closely bound to the EU after the split, due in March. High-profile resignations can unleash leadership challenges in the U.K., and Davis’s prompted pro-Brexit lawmakers to demand May rip up her proposals -- though they didn’t call for her to go. That’s partly because they can’t be sure they have the numbers needed to defeat her.

2 resignations in the last couple of days? Yeah, that's the British style. They all agree on Friday, and than leave one by one on next days.

Best thing for UK after bad decision about Brexit is England Team and World Cup in Russia. When they lose their match against Croatia on Wednesday, things in UK will be boring again ...
