Brexit Secretary David Davis steps down


Brexit Secretary David Davis has resigned from the government because of disagreements with the Prime Minister Theresa May. The news of Davis` resignation comes two days after the cabinet’s approval of PM May`s Brexit proposal.

The international media has reported that Davis Deputy Secretary Steven Baker also steps down after his resignation on Sunday.

In December 2016, Theresa May brought David Davis to the cabinet in charge of negotiations on the exit of the UK from the European Union.

In the resignation, Davis criticized the PM`s Brexit plan and said that the current trend of policy and tactics was making it look less and less likely that the UK would leave the customs union.

In response, Theresa May wrote that she does not agree with Davis description about the approved proposal but she, however, thanked him for the responsibility Davis has been performing so long to come out of the European Union.

The Conservative MP, Peter Bone praised Davis decision to step down and said, it is his courageous step to save the policy. According to Bone, PM May`s proposal on Brexit is not acceptable.

On the other hand, Labor Party Chairman Ian Lavery said that extreme disorder has been created in the government and there can no longer be any authority to the Theresa May after Davis resignation.
