Nigel Adams MP became the first to go following yesterday’s marathon cabinet meeting, quitting as a junior minister and as an assistant Conservative whip. In a scathing letter, he accused Mrs May of “cooking up” a deal “with a Marxist who has never once in his political life put British interests first.”

BREXIT – Wales minister Nigel Adams quits: First cabinet minister resigns after Theresa May’s Brexit ‘compromise’ with Jeremy Corbyn

Prime Minister Theresa May said Tuesday that she will seek to further delay Britain’s exit from the European Union and seek to make an accord with the political opposition in a bid to break the Brexit impasse.

May made the announcement after the E.U.’s chief negotiator warned that a chaotic and costly Brexit was likely in just 10 days unless Britain snapped out of the political crisis that has paralyzed the government and Parliament.

After a seven-hour Cabinet meeting, May announced a significant softening of her Brexit terms.

“I have always been clear that we could make a success of no-deal in the long term but leaving with a deal is the best solution,” she said in a televised statement from 10 Downing St.
