Boris Johnson Resigns, Plunging Gov’t Into CrisisBoris Johnson Resigns, Plunging Gov’t Into Crisis

Boris Johnson resigned from the UK government, tipping Prime Minister Theresa May deeper into crisis and increasing the chances she will face a leadership challenge over her Brexit policy.  

Johnson, who served as foreign secretary, was the face of the Brexit campaign. His exit sends a strong message to those who voted to leave the European Union in a 2016 referendum that their decision is being betrayed, Bloomberg reported.

It is also just hours since Brexit Secretary David Davis quit as a protest against May's efforts to keep Britain closely bound to the European Union after the split, due in March.
