UK PM May seeks unity amid chaos over Brexit plans

He said: "Now that the secretary of state has resigned, clearly there will be more scrutiny on the deal".

Fellow Brexiteer Liam Fox, the International Trade Secretary, was seen to shake his head and mouth the word "No" when reporters asked him on his way out of a Cabinet meeting whether he was about to quit.

When Trump stands next to May on Friday at Chequers, her official country residence, it is therefore the American leader who seems more likely to radiate stability and levelheadedness.

UK's new Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt today said he would be "four square" behind the embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May as her new-look Cabinet met for the first time after a string of resignations over her Brexit strategy left her government in crisis.

Gove told British television station ITV he was "absolutely not" planning to resign.

Some 64% of Britons do not trust her to run Brexit negotiations - up 31 percentage points from when we last asked the question in March 2017.

Tory former minister Mark Francois said a confidence vote in the PM was not the "right thing to do". "I hope you have a lovely day". "And sending our best wishes to England for tomorrow!" in a reference to the World Cup semi-final against Croatia.

Hunt said it was a moment to show that Britain remained a "strong, confident voice in the world". "Boris Johnson's a friend of mine, he's been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there".

A high from Mr Johnson's time in the Foreign Office was his determined efforts to convince President Trump tohonour the Iran nuclear deal.

"Our priority around Brexit is to ensure that Australia secures a free trade agreement with the United Kingdom that's as beneficial to both countries as possible, as soon as possible", Mr Pyne said.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street in central London after attending the weekly cabinet meeting on July 10, 2018. I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship. From our perspective we need to keep focused on how we protect Irish interests, Irish people and how we work with the British Government and the Barnier task force to find a way forward that can give certainty.

Other MPs in the region backed Mrs May following the resignations of Brexit Secretary David Davis, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and MP Chris Green.

"Whoever becomes leader is going to have exactly the same problems she's got, which is, thanks to her and her election past year; we don't have a majority in the House of Commons", she said.

Mr Johnson's resignation bombshell came less than 24 hours after Brexit Secretary David Davis announced he was quitting, saying he could not make the case convincingly for the Chequers proposals in the negotiations with Brussels.

At a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in London later Tuesday, May vowed to deliver a "smooth and orderly Brexit that protects jobs, livelihoods and also meets our commitment for no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland".

"If the required 48 members sign what they hope will be her death warrant, they could find that no one is fearless or competent enough to execute it", commentator Charles Moore wrote in the Brexit-backing Daily Telegraph newspaper on Tuesday.

The HuffPost reports that May's allies believe that her unpredictable rival - perhaps the most polarising presence in the party - lacks the numbers to trigger a vote of confidence, and that "even if one was sparked, Johnson may also fail to get enough MPs needed to get his name on the leadership election ballot paper sent to party members".

Former leader Michael Howard said a bid to oust Mrs May would be "extremely foolish and extremely ill-advised".
