British Prime Minister Boris Johnson facing rebellion from cabinet member over no-deal Brexit

According to a report from The Times, a large number of conservative members of the ruling cabinet are likely to quit in case of a no-deal Brexit.

On Wednesday, as per a report from the Times newspapers, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing a new rebellion from his cabinet over concerns of a no-deal Brexit with a group of cabinet ministers poised to resign.

According to The Time report, Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan, Justice Secretary Robert Buckland, British Minister for Northern Ireland Julian Smith, Attorney General Geoffrey Cox, Health Minister Matt Hancock, are all on a “resignation watch list”.

According to an unnamed cabinet minister, cited by The Times, a “very large number” of Conservative members of parliament are likely to quit in the case of a no-deal Brexit.

During a cabinet meeting Ministers had warned Johnson of the “grave” risk of the return of direct rule in Northern Ireland.

“Cabinet will set the strategy, not un-elected officials. If this is an attempt to do that then it will fail”, said The Times report.

The report comes even as the European Union accused Britain of playing a “stupid blame game” over Brexit.

With just three weeks remaining before the United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European bloc, the country’s economic future remains deeply uncertain.
