Theresa May and Lord Heseltine

His departure adds to a crisis over Brexit that threatens to tear apart Prime Minister Theresa May's government.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson leaves 10 Downing Street in London after attending the weekly cabinet meeting on June 12, 2018.

What do the resignations of Boris Johnson and David Davis mean for Theresa May?

Mr Davis resigned on Sunday night from the Department for Exiting the European Union, insisting that he could not support Theresa May's vision of Brexit.

But don't worry: His real resignation letter was just more subtle with the clues.

Johnson warned Britain was headed for the "status of colony" of the European Union after it leaves in March, and said the Brexit "dream is dying".

"That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt". "Maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there", Trump said.

It's true that when he was Mayor of London, Mr Johnson campaigned to introduce tougher rules on lorry safety to protect cyclists. He built a public profile on Latin quips and rumpled eccentricity, while nurturing a poorly concealed ambition to lead his country.

"We have to find a solution, not only for Ireland but for the United Kingdom and in the interest of the 27 member states of the EU".

Government unity began to fray within hours.

Davis also said that May's plan "would be a risk at least of delivering a poor outcome".

But May's sense that she had faced down the rebels and weathered the storm is likely to have been shaken by Tuesday's resignations - which took the total number of departures since Chequers to seven - and she will be anxious about what the flying monkeys will unleash next.

Less than nine months remain until Britain reduces the EU's membership on March 29, 2019. Time is running out.

He went on to explain how the current political turmoil in Britain will work to the EU's advantage in Brexit negotiations.

Dominic Raab was appointed Brexit secretary by Mrs May after Davis' resignation. Brexit-supporting lawmakers were angered by the proposals, saying they would keep Britain tethered to the bloc and unable to change its rules to strike new trade deals around the world.

"I was elected to represent my constituents and the Prime Minister'S team needs to be aware that backbench MPs won't sit idly by and allow a so-called "soft Brexit" with us being half-in, half-out", Andrea Jenkyns wrote in The Daily Telegraph. "It requires them to think again and look beyond the positions they have taken so far and agree a fair balance of rights and obligations".

Besides their senior colleagues, Brexit junior minister Steve Baker and two ministerial aides also resigned from the government yesterday.

On Monday evening, Johnson was replaced as foreign secretary by Jeremy Hunt, who in turn was replaced as health secretary by Matt Hancock, as the prime minister embarked on a reshuffle to shore up her position.

The resignation of two British cabinet ministers are matters for the Prime Minster Theresa May, a spokesperson for the Taoiseach has said.

The minister highlighted the free-flowing border and reiterated the Irish government's commitment to ensuring no infrastructure is returned to the border.

"I'd have to deliver this".

He told LBC radio: "I don't think a no-confidence vote is immediately in the offing. Others don't have that same responsibility".

Candidates for the leadership must be nominated by two Conservative MPs. In order to oust the Prime Minister as Tory leader, some 48 Conservative MPs would have to send letters demanding a vote of no confidence. "I think that's what a lot of people don't realize", she said. He urged May to abandon her plans and take a tougher line with Brussels.

The ramifications that the resignations will have on this week's working visit are unclear.
