In less than one year, the United Kingdom is scheduled to exit from the European Union. But on Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a major blow to her administration when two top Brexiters opted to exit from her cabinet. May’s foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, hours after the resignation of Brexit Secretary David Davis. Both men resigned to protest May’s handling of the UK’s impending exit from the EU.

Both Davis and Johnson left because, according to May, they did not agree on the best path for honoring the results of the Brexit referendum in 2016. With Johnson’s departure, however, May faces more than a sign of disagreement from one of her top officials; because Johnson was such a conspicuous supporter of the Leave movement in 2016, his departure could be interpreted as a sign that May is no longer regarded as the ideal political leader to manage the Brexit process at this time. She initially campaigned against a so-called hard exit from the EU.
