Brussels fears cabinet crisis is a path to no-deal Brexit

  Brussels fears cabinet crisis is a path to no-deal Brexit Two high-profile resignations prompt fears that a "no-deal" Brexit is a little closer, writes Katya Adler.A far more familiar face here is Olly Robbins, the prime minister's Europe adviser.

LONDON — The British government has released proposals for what it calls a "principled, pragmatic and ambitious" Brexit — plans that have already triggered the resignation of two top ministers and face likely resistance from the European Union.

The long-awaited document published Thursday aims to keep Britain and the bloc in a free market for goods, with a looser relationship for services.

But the plan has infuriated fervent Brexit supporters in Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party, who think it would limit Britain's ability to strike new trade deals around the world. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis both quit the government this week in protest.

Newly appointed Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said the plans called for an "innovative and unprecedented economic partnership" between Britain and the EU.
