May appoints new Brexit secretary who once called feminists 'obnoxious bigots'

Trump on Tuesday said that his visit comes during a time of "turmoil" in Britain but added he might speak to former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, whose resignation deepened a crisis in May's government, during the trip which begins on Thursday.

It followed the agreement reached by cabinet ministers on the UK's negotiating strategy at Chequers last Friday (6 July).

Raab used to be Chief of Staff to David Davis, who he replaces at DExEU.

Mr Raab has the job of persuading Brussels to accept Britain's offer of close economic ties following the UK's exit in March next year. Control of our own borders - it's unlikely that we've got that, and to be completely free from European Union intervention and to be able to trade freely with the rest of the world.

"The Queen has gladly approved Dominic Raab's appointment as a minister for Britain's release from the European Union", says the statement of the Theresa May's office.

"With our leave date fast approaching we have no time for the mechanisms of a leadership challenge", he said. "And that's a risky strategy at this time".

More than 50,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby although a counter-gathering to welcome him is also planned.

If Davis's resignation rattled May, Johnson's shook the foundations of her government.

He was enthusiastic about Johnson, calling him "a friend of mine".

Julia Lopez questioned whether the "common rule book" described in the Chequers plan was an "honest term".

While Johnny Caddick, managing director at build-to-rent developer Moda, has called on the government to refocus its attention to the housing market, rather than simply Brexit negotiations and nothing else.

The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper, said there had been "blunder after blunder" by May. "We need to support her and let her deliver what the country voted for, which is to leave the European Union".

"The Tories can't decide whether to calm business fears or tell firms to get lost, they've lost it at this crucial juncture". Some politicians have already expressed their misgivings.

All eyes are now on the next move by Brexit hardliners in her centre-right Conservative Party.

There is, of course, every chance that the EU-27 will reject the Prime Minister's proposal out-of-hand. But leading pro-Brexit lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg said he did not think she would face a leadership challenge. "It's more important to do what you have promised the British electorate than stick by lines in the sand".

"It delivers on the vote that people gave on Brexit, it delivers the fact that we will have an end to free movement, we will have an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in the United Kingdom, we won't be sending vast contributions to the EU every year, we'll be out of the Common Agricultural Policy, out of the Common Fisheries Policy", she said.

With her Government in chaos, if she clings on, it's clear she's more interested in hanging on for her own sake than serving the people of our country.
