British Brexit Minister David Davis Steps up
British Brexit Minister David Davis Steps Up. British Brexit minister David Davis has resigned from Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday night from Sunday to Monday.
“I did not agree with May last year,” Davis stated in a statement about his resignation.
“The current policy makes it increasingly hard to comply with the outcome of the Brexit referendum,” says Davis. “Our negotiating position is weak at best.”
On Friday, after months of discussion, the British cabinet agreed to negotiate conditions for the Brexit. Then Davis already said he did not agree with the terms.
After consulting with May on Sunday evening, he submitted his resignation.
The agreement states that there must be a free trade area between the European Union and the United Kingdom.
The free movement of people does disappear. Davis is in favour of a tough Brexit without free trade zones.
Soon after Davis stepped on, it became clear that the ministers of the Brexit Ministry had also resigned Steve Baker and Suella Braverman.
May lets us know how sorry it is that Davis is leaving.
“Our negotiating situation is still good, but we had to come to terms and conditions, to start concrete negotiations with the EU.”
Ian Lavery, The chairman of the Labor Party, states that this may mean the end for May: “It is complete chaos, May has no authority left.”
Davis was selected as Brexit Minister in 2016.
