UK MINISTER RESIGNS OVER THERESA MAY’S DECISION TO DELAY BREXIT

United Kingdom junior agriculture minister Mr. George Eustice has resigned over a decision by British prime minister Mrs. Theresa May to allow the parliament to delay Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.

Mr. Eustice, who is responsible for agriculture, fisheries and food, announced his resignation last night, saying he was discontent with Mrs. May’s decision to allow the parliament to vote on delaying brexit.

Mrs. May told the house of commons earlier this week that lawmakers would have a chance to extend a legal mechanism for leaving the EU beyond the official withdrawal date of 29th of this month if her brexit deal is rejected in the chamber.

The decision came under increasing pressure from members of Mrs. May’s own government who had warned they could back parliament’s efforts for delaying brexit unless she rules out a disorderly exit from the EU.
