A Blown-out Crisis?

After the resignations letters of David Davis and Boris Johnson were delivered to Downing Street, many have been wondering what the fate of the Prime Minister will be. Although the attention is focused on the divisions within the Tory party, a trade agreement between the United Kingdom and the EU is yet to be ratified.

Former Brexit Secretary David Davis has resigned from his position, claiming that he no longer believes that the current approach to the Brexit negotiations is the best possible options for the country. This statement comes after a cabinet agreement over Brexit had been reached at Chequers.

Former Foreign Secretary soon followed, stepping down from his office after a tumultuous period of semi-revolt against Mrs May over her Brexit plans,

While the Prime Minister has announced that her Cabinet is united on delivering the best possible deal for British people, Mr Johnson has said that the ‘Brexit dream is dying’. It remains unclear whether Theresa May will be able to retain authority and stability within her government and complete the trade negotiations before the deadline of March 29th 2019.
