UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has become the second cabinet minister to quit, as bitter divisions over Britain's departure from the European Union or Brexit, deepen a political crisis threatening Prime Minister Theresa May's Government.
Johnson's departure on Monday July 09,2018 came a day after David Davis, the British minister in charge of Brexit negotiations,also stepped down amid disagreement's over the country's strategy.
The two resignations leave May badly exposed and raise questions over whether she will stand firm in her commitment to pursuing a "business-friendly" Brexit, or will be faced with more resignations and calls to quit herself.
I am proud to have served as Foreign Secretary. It is with sadness that I step down: here is my letter explaining why.
