Brexit -- the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union -- is nine months away and all signs point to a difficult "pregnancy." Two of Prime Minister Theresa May's ministers have resigned -- Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign minister Boris Johnson. The latter's departure is really not much of a surprise. Johnson was against Brexit before he was for it. The only thing he really seems to be for is -- Boris Johnson. He is positioning himself to be the next prime minister, so in a sense, it's not to his advantage for Brexit or May to succeed -- or, at any rate, to continue to struggle toward a solution.
"In a strongly worded resignation letter, he warned that the current Brexit plan meant Britain was 'truly headed for the status of colony' and accused the prime minister of 'sending our vanguard into battle with the white flags fluttering above them.,' the BBC wrote on its site.
Truth or wishful thinking? It seems that there is a real fear in the U.K. that to "save" Britain Inc., May may be giving away more of the store than anyone bargained for.
