UK: Brexit Secretary David Davis quits
London, July 9:Brexit Secretary David Davis has quit from the government of the United Kingdom.

His departure comes days after Theresa May secured the cabinet's backing for her Brexit plan despite claims from critics that it was "soft", BBC reported.


Davis was appointed to the post in 2016.


As per BBC report,  in his resignation letter, Mr Davis told Mrs May "the current trend of policy and tactics" was making it "look less and less likely" that the UK would leave the customs union and single market.


Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said British PM Theresa May was 'incapable of delivering Brexit'.


"David Davis resigning at such a crucial time shows @Theresa_May has no authority left and is incapable of delivering Brexit. With her Government in chaos, if she clings on, it's clear she's more interested in hanging on for her own sake than serving the people of our country," Corbyn tweeted.
