In her response to Johnson, May wrote that she was "sorry and a little surprised" by his move after his apparent support on Friday, when ministers held talks at her country retreat of Chequers and emerged with a "collective" position on Brexit.

Johnson said in his letter that May's plan to keep close economic ties with the bloc means Britain is heading for a "semi Brexit" that would leave Britain with the "status of a colony" of the EU.

The dramatic departure of the two senior cabinet ministers has sparked rumours that May could face an imminent leadership challenge. "It is the Brexit that will deliver on the democratic decision of the British people", May told parliament.

Merkel welcomed the fact that Britain had formulated a position to take into stalled negotiations with the EU. "If you are not able to provide the support we need to secure this deal in the interests of the United Kingdom, it is right that you should step down", she wrote.

Last month, Hunt said it was inappropriate for businesses like Airbus to issue warnings about moving jobs because of Brexit and that they should instead be getting behind May in her push for a good deal on leaving the EU.

Rumours have swirled over possible further cabinet resignations but experts said May appeared to have weathered the crisis for now. Gauke asked. "The challenge is (that it is) all very well for people to say "I wouldn't do this".

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 48 Conservative lawmakers write a letter requesting one.

The Thai cave rescue
Two of the eight rescued so far have shown signs of a potential lung infection, but there is a hope they could honour the invite. The SEALs say they're still waiting for a medic and three Navy SEALs who stayed with the boys to emerge from the cave.

"May is fighting for her survival", Mujtaba Rahman, a managing director at Eurasia Group, said in a research note.

US President Donald Trump acknowledged that his visit to Britain from Thursday came at a time of "turmoil".

Mr Davis was the first to go, followed by Mr Baker, with Mr Johnson resigning in the afternoon, then Mr Green, and then finally Mr Burns.

"On the one hand, it's true what Downing Street says", one European Union source told me.

"Unfortunately his contribution to the development of bilateral ties with Russian Federation was rather modest, to put it mildly", President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

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.

Hunt said it was a moment to show that Britain remained a "strong, confident voice in the world".

Royal Family Reveals Prince Louis' Godparents
His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne, and the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth . Royal commentators have drawn comparisons between the two women ever since Kate and Prince William announced their engagement.

Now she has lost the seventh and eighth ministers from her Cabinet since last year's election in less than 24 hours.

May says the plan will deliver frictionless trade with Europe and avoid a hard border between the UK's Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.

On Friday, her cabinet ostensibly agreed to pursue a close post-Brexit trading relationship with the EU.

The outgoing Brexit Secretary said the Government had gone further than it should have in the negotiations, and warned it was a "dangerous strategy".

"I had with David Davis a frank and cordial relationship, and now I will work next Monday with this negotiator appointed by Mrs May", he told AFP.

She said she and the two departed ministers "do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum" in which voters opted to leave the EU.

The Johnson resignation was unnecessary - even Davis commented that Brexit was not essential to Johnson's portfolio - but he was likely more interested in jumping on the Brexit resignation bandwagon to see if there was a political opportunity to seize the premiership he has coveted for so long.
