Boris Johnsonresigned from the United Kingdom government, tipping Prime Minister Theresa May deeper into crisis and increasing the chances she'll face a leadership challenge over her Brexit policy.
A spokesman for the Department for Transport said in response: "We share the mayor's concerns about the potential benefits of improved cab design and we want to see changes in the industry". After Johnson's departure she said she was "sorry and a little surprised" at his decision after ministers appeared to back her proposals.
She said she and the two departed ministers "do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum" in which United Kingdom voters opted to leave the EU.
New Brexit secretary Dominic Raab also vowed to strike the "best deal with our European Union friends and partners" while preparing for an increasingly likely no-deal scenario.
British Health Minister Jeremy Hunt will replace Boris Johnson as Foreign Minister, Prime Minister Theresa May's Downing Street office said on Monday following Johnson's dramatic resignation over the government's strategy for Brexit.
He followed in the footsteps of David Davis, who announced his resignation late on Sunday night.
"In his resignation letter, Davis said the "'common rule book policy hands control of large swathes of our economy to the European Union and is certainly not returning control of our laws in any real sense".
With Johnson's resignation, a noisy rebellion among the ranks could gather steam.
The value of the British pound dropped on worldwide markets after Johnson's announcement, having risen after the announcement Friday that a Cabinet deal on Brexit had been agreed.
Writing on Twitter, he added: "Huge honour to be appointed Foreign Secretary at this critical moment in our country's history".
Opposition politicians were quick to capitalize on May's troubles.
Speaking tonight, Mr Hunt said he would be supporting Mrs May in her efforts to secure a Brexit deal with Brussels.
Johnson was said to have decided not to quit over May's soft Brexit plan because he wanted to remain in Cabinet and fight for the divorce he wants, a person familiar with his thinking said after the Chequers meeting.
But in reality, she will be at the mercy of her party.
In her statement Prime Minister vowed to deliver "a Brexit that is in our national interest, the right Brexit deal for Britain".
But in parliament, her words suggested she had chose to face down the dissenters rather than change her plans.
