Turmoil has erupted in the political scene of Great Britain with at least seven resignation after her announcement that her cabinet had agreed to the terms she brought for the Brexit deal.
Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab who was in charge of negotiating the deal and had taken the position in July after the resignation of his predecessor resigned, stating that the deal in its current form has serious flaws.
Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Esther McVey also resigned.
Junior Minister in Britain’s Brexit ministry Suella Braverman also resigned .
Following these resignations the Vice-Chair of the Conservative party and PM Trade Envoy to Pakistan Rehman Chishti resigned saying on Twitter that he cannot support the draft and that he is disappointed by the lack of leadership in the UK government.
Of course this is not the end of bad news for Theresa May since she has also upset Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) which supports her minority government.
The anger comes since the deal that May has brought is considered a Brexit in name only and that it effectively cedes power to the EU, while leaving the UK with less autonomy.
Regardless the deal needs 320 of parliament’s 650 MP’s in order to pass something that is looking mathematically impossible as time goes on, and May burns her political capital.
