Brexit: Theresa May faces more resignation threats of ministers

British Prime Minister Theresa May, might be having more than alot to chew on her plate after she was recently faced with a threat of more ministerial resignations over her refusal to rule out the possibility of Britain crashing out of the European Union without a deal on March 29.

Three junior ministers penned a letter in the Daily Mail urging May to delay Brexit if she fails to win concessions from Brussels over the withdrawal terms.

The warning comes after three more senior ministers published a similar letter over the weekend.

“We implore the government to take that step this week,” the ministers said in Tuesday’s letter.

“All of us were agreed that we couldn’t be part of a government that allowed the country to leave the EU without a deal,” one of the three, culture and media minister Margot James, told BBC radio.

“As D-day approaches, I think we felt honor-bound to actually do something to help prevent such catastrophe.

The letter was also signed by business minister Richard Harrington and energy minister Claire Perry.

They wrote: “We must act immediately to ensure that we are not swept over the precipice on March 29.”
