Another UK govt minister quits over Brexit deal British government minister Sam Gyimah quit late Friday over Prime Minister Theresa May's "naive" Brexit plan, dealing her another blow in her fight to pass it through parliament. The universities and science minister is the seventh member of May's government to quit since she brought back the draft Withdrawal Agreement from Brussels. Gyimah, who voted to remain in the EU, said the deal was "not in the British national interest" and that voting for it would set Britain "up for failure". "Britain will end up worse off, transformed from rule makers into rule takers," he wrote on Facebook.
