MICHAEL Gove has turned down Theresa May’s offer to replace Dominic Raab as Brexit Secretary.
The Environment Secretary reportedly wanted to ‘renegotiate’ the Brexit deal, but it seems Mrs May was not for turning and would not allow Gove to renegotiate her highly divisive plan.
May’s plan has been rejected by the majority of her own party, the Labour Party, the SNP and the DUP… but, she won’t change course.
He is also considering quitting May’s cabinet altogether, reports the BBC.
The news could also signal that May is about to be toppled – today more MPs sent letters of no confidence and Jacob Rees-Mogg and the ERG moved against May.
This is a developing story.
