BREAKING: #UK Foreign Sec. Boris Johnson Quits Cabinet; PM Theresa May's Hold On Power In Doubt

[world politics news]

The UK's Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson has resigned, the third minister in Prime Minister Theresa May's cabinet in 24 hours to walk out of the government rather than back Theresa May’s plans for a soft Brexit. The prime minister hammered out a compromise with her deeply divided cabinet in an all-day meeting at Chequers on Friday, but after consulting friends and allies, Johnson decided he could not promote the deal to the public. This puts May's hold on the office in doubt, and a "no confidence" vote that could remove her seems likely.
