Theresa May’s government in London is ‘falling apart before our eyes’ over Brexit deal. Five high profile resignations have followed on the heels of Theresa May’s announcement that her cabinet has settled for a draft agreement on Brexit.
Shailesh Vara, the Minister of State at the Northern Ireland Office was the first top official to resign after the prime minister announced that her cabinet had reached a draft EU withdrawal agreement.
An hour after his announcement, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab – the man charged with negotiating and finalizing the deal – said he was stepping down, stating that the Brexit deal in its current form suffers from deep flaws.
Esther McVey, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, submitted her letter of resignation shortly afterwards. More resignations have followed.
According to McVey, the deal “does not honor” the result of the Brexit referendum, in which a majority of Brits voted to leave the European Union.
No democratic nation has ever signed up to be bound by such an extensive regime. Raab’s departure will undoubtedly encourage other Brexit supporters to question the deal.
Suella Braverman, a junior minister in Britain’s Brexit ministry, issued her resignation on Thursday, saying that she couldn’t stomach the deal. Braverman said that the deal is not what the British people voted for, and threatened to tear the country apart.
However, Theresa May won’t give in, as all dictators do these days. She won’t step down, because she represents the business community instead of the British people.
When Cameron stepped after the Brexit vote, May took over his position without being elected. Now she is aiming for second Brexit vote in order to blame the tax paying citizens for the mess left behind.
