UK's May names new foreign secretary

Theresa May

Johnson, who served as foreign secretary, was the face of the Brexit campaign.

But there was growing speculation about Mr Johnson's plans on Monday after he failed to attend a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergencies committee as well as a summit of Western Balkan nations being held in London.

The BBC reported that Johnson said in his resignation letter that May has put off decisions about how Britain will leave the European Union, warning that "we appear to be heading for a semi-Brexit, with large parts of the economy still locked in the EU system, but with no United Kingdom control over that system".

Two years after Britain voted 52 percent to 48 percent to leave the European Union, May is trying to find a middle way between two starkly differing views -within her party and the country - of the UK's relationship with Europe.

In his resignation letter, Johnson wrote: "Brexit should be about opportunity and hope".

Trump picks conservative judge Kavanaugh for US Supreme Court
The White House reassigned key communications staff last week to focus exclusively on the looming Supreme Court fight. He left office as the number two in his party's Senate leadership, a position now held by Republican GOP Sen.


Staunch Brexiteer Dominic Raab was named as Mr Davis's replacement as Secretary of State for Leaving the European Union, and a new foreign secretary was expected to be in place by the end of the day.

A spokesman for the Department for Transport said in response: "We share the mayor's concerns about the potential benefits of improved cab design and we want to see changes in the industry". I don't think it's central to the Foreign Secretary.

"It seems to me we're giving too much away, too easily, and that's a unsafe strategy at this time", Davis said in a BBC radio interview Monday morning.

"I have always liked him", he said, adding he had not spoken with Prime Minister May since Johnson quit.

Addressing parliament today, the Prime Minister told MPs: "We do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honouring the result of the referendum". Kat Malthouse, a work and pensions minister, replaced Dominic Raab as housing minister and Chris Heaton-Harris became a junior minister at the Brexit department, replacing Steve Baker.

A longtime court settlement says children who cross the border illegally can not be detained for more than 20 days. I don't anticipate them dragging on.


May was asked by an opposition lawmaker Monday whether she would contest a vote of confidence if one came rather than resign.

The value of the British pound dropped on global markets after Johnson's announcement, having risen after the announcement Friday that a Cabinet deal on Brexit had been agreed.

Responding to the news, Royal Pharmaceutical Society English board chair Sandra Gidley told C+D she "wishes Matthew Hancock the best of luck in his new and challenging role". "But there are people in Labour and the Liberal Democrats who wish to damage the sort of Brexit that many of my constituents have voted for".

But in parliament, her words suggested she had chose to face down the dissenters rather than change her plans.
