The Brexit Secretary David Davis has resigned over the Brexit plan agreed to by the Government. He (and many others) said that it would leave the UK still bound by most EU policies, yet be unable to influence them.
It is quite possible the Government may fall over this, or at least Theresa May could be goneburger. But if there is a change of leadership, the chances of an agreement with the EU will go from fairly slim to very slim. So it could be a hard Brexit.
Sadly the biggest beneficiary could be Jeremy Corbyn who may end up being elected despite his manifest unsuitability to be in charge of a fish and chip shop, let alone the UK.
If May goes, the favourites to replace her (for now) are:
- Michael Gove
- Sajid Javid
- Jacob Rees-Mogg
- Boris Johnson
- Jeremy Hunt
- Andrea Leadsom
