UK's May signals plan to demote Foreign Minister Johnson, newspaper says

UK's May signals plan to demote Foreign Minister Johnson, newspaper says

The Prime Minister is instead being urged by members of her Cabinet to sack Chancellor Philip Hammond - for being too gloomy about Brexit - in a Cabinet reshuffle at the end of the month.

She added: "I think she's the best prime minister that we've got and she has my full support".

Boris Johnson will "just say no" if Theresa May tries to demote him in a reshuffle, allies warned today.

No sooner had she resumed, than May was overtaken by a prolonged coughing fit, which continued on and off throughout the rest of the speech.

The uncovering of a plot led by former party co-chairman Grant Shapps to remove Mrs May from 10 Downing Street has fuelled fresh speculation over her premiership.

"I don't think he has been totally on board, I think he has been deliberately trying to make the Brexit negotiations hard, stall them, obfuscate the issues". It would take as long as three months for the Tories to pick a new leader, and there are just 18 months to go until Britain tumbles out of the bloc.

But the foreign secretary - who has been on thin ice since his "dead bodies" comment - has put a statement describing her speech as "great", echoing her view that the chances of new rules coming in were "very small".

Earlier on Monday, the fifth round of Brexit talks began in Brussels.

Some of the cases reached the Supreme Court and were the object of nationwide attention, such as the Hobby Lobby ruling in 2014 . This rule would significantly overhaul the birth control mandate as it had been implemented by the Obama administration.


"I've got a job at the moment", she said.

Senior Tories from Home Secretary Amber Rudd to Environment Secretary Michael Gove have rallied behind her in recent days.

Ruth Davidson said there had been some "unfortunate shenanigans" in the party "but the pushback has been pretty strong" against those trying to force a leadership contest.

She criticised "tittle-tattle" by colleagues, adding that being a politician is "about delivering for the country, it's not and should never be about private ambition".

"These are issues that the Prime Minister knows and cares about and we welcome the announcements and vision to tackle these problems in her speech".

Speaking to the BBC, Brexit minister Dominic Raab said preparations for a no deal were "well under way", adding that while the United Kingdom had to "strive for the very best outcome" from Brexit negotiations, it must also "prepare for all eventualities".

A fourth minister was quoted as saying there needed to be an orderly transition to a new leader and there was no prospect of May being in charge for the next election due in 2022.

I'm actually getting a bit narked and I'm sure there's quite a lot of women out there that are (getting) a bit narked at how many male commentators are talking about male cabinet ministers deciding what she should or shouldn't do as if she has no agency in this herself. "It is clear that we need to have a reboot and that means it is time to move on".
