The Prime Minister Theresa May has been rocket by yet another resignation today after her spine announced its departure this morning.

It is the latest high-profile resignation following the Cabinet quittings of Boris Johnson and David Davis.

A Downing Street source said, ‘This has been on the cards for a while.’

‘As soon as it became clear that she was unwilling to listen to the millions of people who voted for Brexit to happen as cleanly as possible, whilst simultaneously ignoring the millions of others who now think that the whole thing is a pile of w*nk, each and every vertebrae just decided that it must be surplus to requirements.’

It is widely-believed that this setback will not prove to be a huge issue for Mrs May, who is expected now to take a role in the House of Lords.
