Theresa May’s new-look cabinet meets amid Brexit turmoil

botchway July 10, 2018

Theresa May’s new-look cabinet has met for the first time after a string of resignations over her Brexit strategy left her government in crisis.
Mrs May was forced to carry out a reshuffle of her top team after Boris Johnson and David Davis both quit.
The prime minister has warned the Tory party it must unite or face the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn in power.
Jeremy Hunt, who has replaced Mr Johnson as foreign secretary, said he would be “four square” behind her.
After the cabinet meeting, Mrs May tweeted that she was “looking ahead to a busy week”.
The UK is due to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019, but the two sides have yet to agree how trade will work between the UK and the EU after that.
The delay has been partly blamed on deep disagreements within the Conservative Party over what shape Brexit should take.
Essentially the arguments are about how much the UK should prioritise business interests by compromising on post-referendum promises to end free movement of people, remove the UK from the remit of the European Court of Justice, and also have an independent trade policy which allows the UK to set its own trade rules and strike its own trade deals.
