Theresa May’s Brexit deal is hanging by a thread as Conservative MPs plot to install David Davis as PM
A provisional Brexit divorce deal between the EU and UK fell apart on Sunday after Cabinet ministers threatened to walk out of May's government.
Despite two high-profile Cabinet resignations and accusations of betrayal, Theresa May is still in office. Here's why.
Newly appointed Brexit secretary Dominic Raab is a committed Brexiteer and an 'active supporter' of the European Research Group. He is not without controversy, having previously labelled feminists 'obnoxious bigots.'
Raab replaces David Davis who quit Cabinet on Sunday evening in protest against Theresa May's handling of Brexit.
The resignation of David Davis came two days after the UK cabinet supported Prime Minister Theresa May's plan for a "soft" Brexit. "The best person to do this would be somebody who believes in it, not me," Davis told BBC radio.
It is now a question of when, not if, the prime minister is forced out as prime minister.
May responded in a two-and-a-half page letter saying she does "not agree" with Davis' characterization of a diluted Brexit policy, but thanked Davis for his service.

Foreign Office minister Alan Duncan says a second vote on the terms of May's Brexit deal could happen but would not reverse the decision to leave the EU. Duncan's comments are the first time a senior government figure has left open the possibility of a second vote.
