"What Theresa May was trying to do with her proposal last week was to come up with a compromise that would keep all sides on ball within the Conservative party, and clearly that has failed", Clark said. Steve Baker, a junior Brexit minister, resigned along with Davis.

British foreign minister Boris Johnson has resigned, following former-Brexit minister David Davis out of the cabinet just days after Prime Minister Theresa May secured a hard-won agreement from senior ministers on an European Union exit strategy.

May said: "What we are proposing is challenging for the EU".
