Jeremy Wright QC appointed as Digital Secretary

Jeremy Hunt announced as new foreign secretary replacing Boris Johnson

Mr Hunt is leaving the Department of Health and Social Care (DH) to become foreign secretary, replacing Boris Johnson, who resigned this afternoon in protest at the government's approach to Brexit.

Britain's new Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Jeremy Hunt arrives at the Foreign Office in central London, Britain, July 9, 2018.

Mrs May raised the prospect of a Jeremy Corbyn-led government to appeal for Tory unity on Brexit at a meeting of the '22 on Monday night.

Soon after his appointment, Hunt said he would be standing "four square" behind the prime minister "so that we can get through an agreement with the European Union based on what was agreed by the Cabinet last week at Chequers".

Starbucks announced plans to eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year from its stores worldwide by 2020. On July 1, Seattle became the first USA city to ban plastic straws, spoons, forks and knives.

She said she would present a detailed paper on Thursday on the government's negotiating position for a post-Brexit relationship with the EU.

"We're a hugely important country in the world still and we should have been making much more of that. I am deeply concerned at the position of the British government and urge them to embrace this vital issue". Prior to that Hancock had done a reasonable job as Digital Minister and he generally put in a fairly steady showing during his short time as the Culture Secretary.

UK Attorney General Jeremy Wright replaces Hancock as the new culture secretary, with backbencher Geoffrey Cox replacing him as the new Attorney General.

The departure of the two Cabinet "big beasts" came just two days after Prime Minister Theresa May secured senior ministers' agreement at Chequers for a Brexit plan about which both men had expressed reservations. Steve Baker, a junior Brexit minister, resigned along with Davis. I don't think it's central to the Foreign Secretary. Farage, who quit as leader following the 2016 European Union referendum result, called on Conservative MPs to hold a vote of no confidence over the prime minister.

Trump set to announce highly anticipated US Supreme Court pick
If as expected Trump nominates someone firmly to the right, conservatives could dominate the court for years. The White House hopes Kyl's close ties to Senate Republicans will help smooth the path to confirmation.

If she chose to fight, she would need the support of more than 50% of Conservative MPs - now 159 - in the confidence vote to stay in office.

That's what Boris Johnson wrote yesterday in his resignation letter.

He has always supported a so-called "hard Brexit", which supports relinquishing access to the bloc's single market in exchange for full border control.

High-profile resignations can unleash leadership challenges in the United Kingdom, and Davis's prompted pro-Brexit lawmakers to demand May rip up her proposals - though they didn't call for her to go. "Nice try", she said while adding, "But I'm getting on with delivering what the British people want".
