Reading Time: 1 minute

Theresa May’s hopes of winning parliament’s backing for her Brexit deal have been plunged into fresh doubt after Jo Johnson resigned from the government and accused her of offering MPs a choice between “vassalage and chaos”.

The Guardian reports four months after his Brexiter brother Boris quit as foreign secretary, the remainer MP for Orpington and rail minister said he could not vote for the deal which May is expected to bring back to parliament within weeks and instead would throw his weight behind a second referendum.
