PressTV-UK Brexit Secretary David Davis resigns

David Davis has resigned as British Brexit secretary of state for exiting the European Union, according to reports.

The resignation came on Sunday night following tensions in the cabinet over Prime Minister Theresa May’s vision for Britain’s post-Brexit relationship with the EU.

Davis was appointed Brexit secretary in 2016 and was responsible for negotiating the British withdrawal from the EU.

Conservative MP Peter Bone welcomed his resignation saying he had “done the right thing.”

“The PM’s proposals for a Brexit in name only are not acceptable,” he added.

Labour Party chairman Ian Lavery said, “This is absolute chaos and Theresa May has no authority left.”
