Davis' resignation was also accompanied by the resignation of his deputy, Brexit minister Steve Baker, according to the Telegraph.

She said he was not any ordinary cabinet minister but was the "face" of the Leave campaign during the 2016 referendum and his departure would fuel speculation about a leadership challenge.

But by appointing Brexit campaigner Dominic Raab as Davis's replacement, May might hope to quell some of that anger.

David Davis' resignation as Brexit Secretary just months before the United Kingdom has to conclude Brexit negotiations, is a crushing blow to Theresa May's authority as prime minister and has put the entire future of her government in doubt.

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has repeatedly called for reversing Brexit, echoing other critics such as French President Emmanuel Macron and billionaire investor George Soros, who have suggested that Britain could still change its mind.

Denying that he wanted to unseat the prime minister, he said he would now "argue for being as firm as possible". 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.

Any attempt to replace May now would also put huge pressure on the government to call a general election, which would not only risk putting Jeremy Corbyn in power, but also threaten the whole future of the Brexit project. Michael Gove, May's environment minister, said on Sunday that while the agreed negotiating stance was not flawless, he believed it delivered on handing back control to Britain.

Other Brexit-supporting Conservative MPs have criticized the Chequers deal, saying May's plans offered Brexit in name only. The government is trying to convince lawmakers to back the agreed stance, inviting them, including those from the opposition Labour Party, for briefings on the plan.
