May's Brexit plan could 'kill' USA trade deal

GBP to AUD exchange rate week ahead

Asked about his reaction to Johnson's resignation, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said sarcastically that "this clearly proves that at Chequers, there was unity in the cabinet".

Ms Bishop is keen to continue Australia and the UK's strong relationship under replacement Jeremy Hunt, noting her achievements working with Mr Johnson in recent years.

He suggested that the prime minister's proposal was a betrayal of those who voted to leave the European Union and said that Boris Johnson would make a great prime minister.

As I outlined at Chequers, the agreement we reached requires the full, collective support of Her Majesty's Government.

In the wake of Mr Johnson's resignation on Monday night, members of the European Research Group of Brexiteers and the 1922 backbench committee met at separate gatherings in Westminster.

Visible face of hard sector of Brexit, with a long history of challenges to Prime Minister every time this moved away from hardest postulates in process of rupture with European Union, departure of Boris Johnson makes Prime Minister wobble, by disenfréntandoseing likelihood that May will end up in a motion of censure. Talks have all but stalled because of her reluctance to show her cards until now for fear of angering one of the two main factions of her party.

Asked about the remarks, Mrs May's official spokesman said: "The Prime Minister is looking forward to showing the President the United Kingdom and is confident that he will leave with a very positive impression".

He stated that it's "up to the people" whether or not May stays in power after the double resignation from her cabinet.

She told BBC Two's Newsnight: "I think if the Prime Minister makes further concessions with the European Union then there will no doubt be more resignations from Brexiteers in the Cabinet, from junior ministers to PPSs, because there is only so much that you can give in a negotiation".

Although May looked to have avoided a direct challenge to her leadership, there were more signs that all was not well. A striking contrast against the simple hope of the British people taking back control of their democracy. "It's not even an accidental betrayal, it was planned and plotted well in advance", said Conservative lawmaker Andrew Bridgen.

Conservative lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg, a leader of the party's "hard Brexit" faction, compared May's plan to an egg so softly boiled that it "isn't boiled at all".

By picking Brett Kavanaugh as his latest nominee for the US Supreme Court, Donald Trump has gone for "the safest conservative bet he can find", says Edward Luce in the Financial Times. The checkbook consensus has taken two years to take place and two days to fade, "Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader, has mocked this afternoon in Parliament".

His decision to resign and leave the party came hours after Brexit Secretary David Davis resigned.

"That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt", Johnson wrote of the government's new approach.

He recalled Sunday's resignation of Brexit Secretary David Davis.

"If the policy doesn't change the letters will go in", one Eurosceptic Conservative MP told the newspaper, adding that "her deal will be rejected by Brussels, Downing Street must know that". "Now there is chaos", it said in its editorial.
