The Independent: the British Minister for Brexit resigned

MOSCOW, 9 Aug — RIA Novosti. The British Minister for Brexit David Davis has resigned, reports “Interfax” citing a source.

As writes the edition, it is connected with the disagreement of the Davis plan, Prime Minister Theresa may on the future of the customs agreements with the EU.

In turn, the Telegraph reports that some members of Parliament, in particular Steve Baker and Suella Braverman, followed the example of Davis.

On Friday the Times newspaper reported that Prime Minister Theresa may has promised the members of the government to dismiss foreign Minister Boris Johnson and other Ministers, if they try to thwart the plan of the Cabinet for a smooth exit from the EU.

Previously British Ministers have agreed on a collective position of London at the Brexit. Following discussions the Prime Minister announced that the United Kingdom would offer the EU to create a free trade area, and to define the list of industrial products and agricultural products that will fall under future limitations.

This program did not suit the supporters of a tougher approach to the country’s exit from the European single market. In their opinion, implementation of this plan will retain the dependence of the UK from the EU and creates advantage for global corporations to the detriment of local producers.

Official document (white paper) on the position of London in talks with Brussels due to be published next week.
