'BREXIT DREAM IS DYING' Boris Johnson slams Theresa May and says Britain is waving a white flag on Brexit as he resigns following David Davis
The Prime Minister could now face a leadership challenge from Leave-backing MPs furious at the soft Brexit plan agreed by the Cabinet at Chequers

By Hugo Gye, Natasha Clark, Alain Tolhurst, Steve Hawkes, Matt Dathan and Jacob Dirnhuber

BORIS Johnson today warned Theresa May that the Brexit "dream is dying" and claimed Britain was set to become a "colony" of the EU as he resigned from her Cabinet.

The PM's grip on power is hanging in the balance this evening after Boris quit just hours after she lost Brexit Secretary David Davis, warning that Britain is waving "white flags" in talks with Brussels.

The two big beasts both walked out of the Cabinet in protest at the PM's plans for Brexit, claiming it's too weak to deliver the referendum result.

The double resignation raises the prospect of a coup against Mrs May - but tonight the head of the Tories' powerful 1922 Committee insisted he hadn't received enough requests to trigger a vote of confidence in the party leader.

And Mrs May gave a defiant performance in the Commons minutes after Boris announced he was going, defending her Brexit strategy and vowing to fight on in the face of Tory rebels.

Its been suspected that May was going to resign after the Brexit was formalized for months and Boris wants to be Prime Minister with the Brexit in the rears.

This seems like par for the course.

I don't know, and, of course ... (insert rant on North American journalism here) ... we don't get much of 'the ins-and-outs of British politics. I get the picture that she has been negotiating terms of departure that allows Britain to remains in the EU while being out of it, at the same time ... say, able to control its own borders and screen its own refugees.

The other guy resigned, and Boris must have watched and thought to himself ... Is that the most direct route to power? Maybe, I don't know. He doesn't seem angry or even alienated. He just looked down the road and decided to get off the bus.

This is a short video that describes what happened at Chequers ... from the pro-Brexit side.
