Amber Rudd should never have joined a Government with which she disagreed

Amber Rudd quits Cabinet and Tory Party in huge blow to Boris Johnson

Labour said Amber Rudd's resignation showed the government was "falling apart".

In her letter of resignation, Rudd wrote: "I joined your cabinet in good faith: accepting that no-deal had to be on the table, because it was the means by which we would have the best chance of achieving a new deal to leave on 31 October".

When pressed by Ridge whether Mr Johnson would "break the law" and continue to pursue a no deal Brexit, Mr Raab said his government "will adhere to the law" but suggested that the government could work around Corbyn's "surrender bill", saying they will "test to the limit what it does, actually, lawfully, require".

Former Foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt called her resignation "very sad news", while Labour chair Ian Lavery used it as leverage to say that the prime minister has "run out of authority in record time", calling his Brexit strategy "a sham".

'As satisfying as it might have been for those in Number 10 frustrated by Commons stalling on Brexit, it may still prove as "short-sighted" as Amber Rudd predicts'.

But allies of Boris Johnson defended the move, with Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab insisting the former London mayor was "right to restore some discipline".

Referencing her resignation, she added: "This was a very personal and hard decision".

"It is unchanged, we will be leaving on October 31", he said.

"If we become a party which has no place for moderates like I am, centre-right conservatives, then we will not win".

"I can not support this act of political vandalism".

Davidson, who resigned as Scottish Conservative leader last month after eight years in charge, added: "I might serve in a different parliament in a different part of the country to the House of Commons but one thing I do know is campaigning".

Two days after the prime minister made the remarks, Foreign Secretary and First Secretary of Inform Dominic Raab in fact useful Sophy Ridge on Sky News on Sunday that "the prime minister is sticking to his guns" and that even supposing "we're going to shield going on with the negotiations" with the European Union to settle on the controversial Irish backstop from the withdrawal treaty, "we must the least bit times leave reach what could maybe well merely" on Halloween.

"I think he's right to expect it from his top team".

He added: "It's been a rough week, but the reality is the Prime Minister is sticking to his guns on what he said to get us out of this rut that we're in".
