MP Gareth Johnson has resigned his post as a minister in the Government’s Whips’ Office, ahead of a highly anticipated vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal. Johnson said in his resignation letter that he could not support the deal.

Addressing his letter to May, Johnson wrote that the current deal being pushed by the government “gives out country no clear, unilateral path out of the European Union and ensures we will be fettered in our ability to negotiate trade deals.”

"This agreement prevents us from taking back control and instead could leave us perpetually constrained by the European Union," he added.
He said that the issue has forced him to “place my loyalty to my country above my loyalty to the government.”
