Amber Rudd resigns from Cabinet and surrenders Tory whip
Amber Rudd has resigned from the Cabinet and surrendered the Conservative whip.
The Hastings and Rye MP quit in protest at Boris Johnson's handling of Brexit.
Rudd said she was relinquishing the Tory whip after the Prime Minister sacked 21 rebels this week.
Mr Johnson removed the whip from two former chancellors and Winston Churchill's grandson after they voted to give Opposition MPs control of the order paper and start the process of blocking a no-deal Brexit.
