A senior authorities supply stated “resignations to chase headlines won’t change the fact that people want Brexit done so that government can deliver on domestic priorities”.
Labour stated Rudd’s resignation confirmed the federal government was “falling apart”.

“I will be considering my position – whether I will stand as an independent Conservative should there be an election coming up,” she instructed the Sunday Occasions.
In her resignation letter to PM Boris Johnson she stated: “I joined your cupboard in good religion: accepting that ‘No Deal’ needed to be on the desk, as a result of it was the means by which we’d have the perfect probability of reaching a brand new deal to go away on October 31.
“Nonetheless, I now not imagine leaving with a deal is the federal government’s essential goal.”
