Boris Johnson has resigned as Foreign Secretary amid a growing political crisis over the UK's Brexit strategy.

He is second senior cabinet minister to quit within hours following Brexit Secretary David Davis's exit.


BBC

Well surly this has to be the end of the May Government now that it seems like all of the Brexiteers are falling out of her cabinet, only a matter of time before she is forced out.

I could see her resigning pretty soon at this rate.

Boris Johnson is an arsehole of the highest order.....but this is a massive blow to Teresa May and one that I doubt she'll survive.
There must be a challenge to her leadership soon....and possibly even a Vote of No Confidence.

Is this what the Remoaners wanted all the time?

Yeah the guy's a arsehole.

I agree this has to bring down her leadership but the uncertainty that could cause with Brexit could be catastrophic at such a key stage of the negotiations.

This was always going to happen though was always only a matter of time.

Wonder when the DUP will walk out???

She was only a half hearted brexiteer anyway.....

The whole house of cards is coming down.....

Time for a true BREXIT leader with tough negotiating skills to take us

OUT deal or no deal. Time is running out!!!!!

No , this is what the leavers wanted , May has shown herself to be weak and clueless the sooner she is out the door the better for this country.
She was selling us down the river with her Brexit means Brexit BS , the only problem is now who next ... hopefully not the blithering idiot Johnson.

No , but a leadership challenge is highly likely now though.
The Tories got badly burned in the last unnecessary election they won't do that again.

You never know though with stuff like this, i agree its unlikely but it does get rather unpredictable, so while I agree that its unlikely I wouldn't rule it out just yet

Boris Johnson was never for Brexit, it was all about a career move for him.

There has to be a new Tory leader now and there'll be a challenge to the validity of the Brexit vote.

I'm a firm supporter of Brexit but even I recognise that this government has put us into a situation where it is currently impossible to negotiate with the EU from a strong position.

The EU and the Remoaners hold most of the cards at present.

David Cameron resigning stalled Brexit negotiations, May spent months dragging her heels and doing absolutely nothing.
It's been a farce from the beginning.
Despite the wishes of the British people they've never wanted us to leave the EU and they will do anything and everything possible to stop us from doing so.

At least he would tell the EU to get bent. You ever priced British goods in France? I have yet to see a UK lorry past the 20 mile mark in Europe. Yet they all come over here and leave their trash and piss bottles all over the roads.

so while I agree that its unlikely I wouldn't rule it out just yet

I would , the Tories have a mandate to govern for 5 years regardless of who the PM is.
At this time we need a new leader not a new government and certainly not a Corbyn government.

That has to be one of the most sensible posts I have ever read by a brexiteer.

For me personally I am against Brexit but also against the EU as it stands just now. I believe we should have remained in the EU but the EU should reform because I do believe that its going to be economically devastating for the UK and the whole thing is a mess.

I cant agree with that,

We have the cards we have the hand, but nobody who knows how to play the

game.
