Amber Rudd resigns over Boris Johnson's 'short sighted culling' of government ministers

Amber Rudd leaves her home in London Britain

Two days after the prime minister made the remarks, Foreign Secretary and First Secretary of Inform Dominic Raab in fact useful Sophy Ridge on Sky News on Sunday that "the prime minister is sticking to his guns" and that even supposing "we're going to shield going on with the negotiations" with the European Union to settle on the controversial Irish backstop from the withdrawal treaty, "we must the least bit times leave reach what could maybe well merely" on Halloween.

Boris Johnson has prorogued Parliament to extend the annual conference recess until October 14.

Amber Rudd has quit Boris Johnson's cabinet and given up the Conservative whip after the prime minister sacked 21 rebellious Conservative MPs this week.

"Unfortunately, I no longer believe that getting that deal is the central objective of the government".

Johnson on Monday reiterated his stance that the provision must be scrapped in order for the two sides to reach a compromise deal ahead of Britain's October 31 departure date.

Mr Johnson stated in response that he "is no longer going to" ask the European Union for yet another lengthen, main to claims by correct experts that if the prime minister "breaks the law", he could maybe well merely be jailed.

The Hastings & Rye MP said she had taken the added step of quitting the party to "make the point that the Conservative Party should be a moderate party which accepts people with different views on the EU".

MPs will vote on a motion calling for a snap election later, but it is not expected to get the two-thirds majority required to pass.

Speaking to Sky News, he insisted testing the law's limits was "the responsible thing to do" and accused Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn of dragging the country "into the quicksand" by backing the legislation.

Such a high profile resignation from his heart of his cabinet will come as a huge blow to Mr Johnson, who has been fighting a rearguard action since MPs took control of the Commons this week to force him to seek an extension to Brexit on October 31. "We will obey all laws because all governments should obey laws absolutely, but you will have to wait and see what happens then".

The former Ukip leader is demanding that Brexit Party candidates are allowed to run against Labour candidates without Conservatives to contend with in the North, the Midlands and South Wales.

In return, the Brexit Party would campaign for pro-Leave Tory candidates in other seats and agree not to contest them.

Mr Javid said the the government has "many new ideas" for how the backstop can be replaced but said it would be "madness" to talk openly about what ministers have in mind.

Javid said: "Anyone who understands how negotiation works, you would not discuss those in public".
