    LONDON ? Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain was battling to save her government on Monday after her foreign secretary quit over Brexit, deepening a mood of crisis just eight months before the country is due to leave the European Union.
    The foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, was the second minister to leave her cabinet within 24 hours, as Mrs. May pushed ahead with a proposal that would keep Britain more closely tied to the European Union than hard-line conservatives want.
    Just last week, she appeared to have won the full cabinet's agreement on keeping Britain's economy closely anchored to the European Union. But the resignations reopened speculation about a challenge to her leadership, something that Mrs. May's official spokesman said she would fight.
    But with the Brexiteers in the party in full revolt, Conservative insiders predicted further resignations unless and until Mrs. May drops her plan.

    this just confirms to me that nobody has a clue what brexit means in practice and it's going to take years to resolve this...

    Absolutely! The referendum should never have happened - the average UK citizen is far too stupid to be trusted with a decision like that...

    Exactly the same situation, yes. Your words though, not mine.
