Jeremy Hunt replaces Boris Johnson as foreign secretary

Jeremy Hunt replaces Boris Johnson as foreign secretary

The government of British Prime Minister Theresa May has been plunged into turmoil with the resignation of two senior Cabinet ministers, exposing a deep and perilous split over her Brexit strategy.

Britain's new Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Jeremy Hunt arrives at the Foreign Office in central London, Britain, July 9, 2018.

Speaking before Mr Johnson's resignation Mr Dunne said the Prime Minister should be allowed to get on with her work.

Davis told May in a letter that the government's proposals for close trade and customs ties "will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position, and possibly an inescapable one".

"Top-level cabinet resignations usually spell trouble for a government and Boris Johnson's might well have led to a leadership challenge, but May appears to have emerged unscathed from a meeting of her party, for now", said Al Jazeera's Jonah Hill, reporting from London.

The Croats hadn't advanced to the semifinals at the World Cup since 1998, when the country made its first appearance. The win against Spain was a minor miracle and fruit of their hard-work, courage and a necessary bit of luck.

In January 2014, Mr Johnson said: "If these amendments, supported by dozens of cities across Europe, can succeed, we can save literally hundreds of lives across the European Union in years to come".

"As I said then, the Government now has a song to sing".

In other moves, Culture Secretary Matt Hancock takes over from Mr Hunt at Health and Social Care.

May named one of her most loyal ministers, Jeremy Hunt, to replace Johnson in the job of Britain's top diplomat.

Solicitor General Robert Buckland said: "She talked about Corbyn, she talked about the alternative which is delivering the country to the sort of government that I don't think people have voted for and certainly any Conservative voter would be repelled by".

"Huge honour to be appointed Foreign Secretary at this critical moment in our country's history", he said in a tweet after his appointment. Steve Baker, a junior Brexit minister, resigned along with Davis.

May's supporters worry that more ministers could resign, and pro-Brexit lawmakers from her Conservative Party could trigger a no-confidence vote in the prime minister.

Conservative MP Andrea Jenkyns said she believed that Mrs May's time as Prime Minister was "over", telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme that she wanted a premier who would "provide true leadership and a positive post-Brexit vision for our country".

Johnson was said to have decided not to quit over May's soft Brexit plan because he wanted to remain in Cabinet and fight for the divorce he wants, a person familiar with his thinking said after the Chequers meeting.
