Sam Gyimah resigns over Theresa May’s Brexit deal
Universities minister quits and pledges to vote against PM’s proposal in parliament
The universities minister, Sam Gyimah, has resigned in protest at the prime minister’s Brexit plan and pledged to vote against the agreement in parliament. On Friday, he became the seventh minister to quit Theresa May’s government over the issue.
Gyimah said the deal on offer would mean the UK lost its voice in the European Union, while still having to abide by the bloc’s rules.
