Transport Minister Jo Johnson in shock resignation

9 Nov 2018


Jo Johnson has announced his resignation as Transport Minister in a shock move over Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal deal.


Following a Cabinet reshuffle in January 2018, 46 year old Johnson became Minister of State for the Department of Transport, following on from John Hayes, who was highly supportive of the taxi industry, he was also Minister for London. 


Johnson, who is Boris Johnston's younger brother said, via a video posted onto Twitter:


"Theresa May's withdrawal deal would leave the UK outside the EU but “wholly subject” to its rules."


He also added:


"The UK is on the brink of the biggest crisis since World War II."


Mr Johnson, a staunch remainer, stated that he felt that he had no choice but to submit his resignation this afternoon.
