Brexit: Minister resigns over Theresa May's 'naive' deal

A UK minister has resigned saying a row over involvement in the EU's Galileo satellite-navigation system exposes Theresa May's Brexit deal as "naive". The UK had wanted to stay part of Galileo after Brexit, but the EU said it would be banned from the extra-secure elements of the programme. Mrs May confirmed on Friday that the UK was pulling out of the project. Science minister Sam Gyimah said it was "a clarion call" and that any deal with Brussels would be "EU first".(BBC)
