Another setback for British Prime Minister Johnson: Labor Minister Rudd has announced her resignation. She justified this with the expulsion of conservative MPs and Johnson's Brexit course.
British Labor Minister Amber Rudd resigns. She announced via Twitter in the evening that she would resign because she could no longer support the current course of the government. She also leaves the conservative group.
In a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Rudd said she had joined his cabinet because she believed that sticking to the no-deal option was the best chance to leave the EU on 31 October with a renegotiated exit agreement,
In the meantime, she no longer believes that a government agreement is a Brexit with a new agreement. Instead, a no-deal Brexit with a lot of energy would be prepared without the same intensity talks with the EU.
Protest against expulsion of delegates
Another important reason for their decision Rudd mentioned Johnson's resignation from Johnson from the Tory faction after they voted against the government. "I can't stand to rule out good, loyal, moderate conservatives," Rudd wrote. She spoke of "political vandalism" in this context.
The prime minister is increasingly being criticized for his hard actions. On Thursday, his brother Jo Johnson resigned as Secretary of State in protest and resigned from his mandate for the Tories. "I have been torn between family loyalty and national interest in recent weeks – it is an unsolvable tension," said Jo Johnson about his decision.
Despite all the opposition and votes that were defeated last week, Johnson wants to make a new start on Monday to force early elections in the lower house.
