Demissões criam caos no Brexit
November 15, 2018 - Na campanha pelo Ficar, a Primeira-ministra Theresa May prometeu unir o país no rescaldo do referendo sobre a UE. Agora, a sua equipa de topo está num caos após uma vaga de demissões ministeriais, enquanto os deputados lhe retiram o seu apoio e à sua impopular proposta dita Chequers.
Five Cabinet ministers including Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab and Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey resigned in protest at May’s Brexit divorce deal.
The high profile resignations came after Cabinet backed a draft Brexit agreement with Brussels in a stormy five-hour Cabinet meeting on Wednesday night. The latest exits followed several other resignations from senior ministers, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, his brother Jo and former Brexit Secretary David Davies.
The pound fell more than 1% against the dollar to $1.2798 and dropped more than 1% against the euro to €1.1313.
