Jo Johnson, the younger brother of Boris, resigned from British Prime Minister Theresa May’s government on Friday, calling in a withering critique for another referendum to avoid her Brexit plans unleashing Britain’s greatest crisis since World War Two.
Quitting as a junior transport minister, Johnson called May’s Brexit plans delusional and said he could not vote for the deal she is expected to unveil in parliament within weeks.
“Britain stands on the brink of the greatest crisis since the Second World War,”
said Johnson, a former Financial Times journalist who voted to stay in the EU in the 2016 referendum. http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-eu-jojohnson/jo-johnson-quits-uk-government-urges-referendum-to-avoid-brexit-chaos-idUKKCN1NE1YN
