Boris Johnson calls Chequers Brexit plan 'miserable permanent limbo'

Boris Johnson calls Chequers Brexit plan 'miserable permanent limbo'

There is also the looming threat of a damning resignation speech by former foreign secretary Boris Johnson where he could chose to attack the prime minister over her Chequers proposals.

He was also the face of Vote Leave - the official pro-Brexit campaign group that was recently fined for breaking electoral law by overspending nearly US$600,000.

One Conservative lawmaker told Reuters the party whips whose job it is to enforce discipline in parliament, had threatened to call a confidence vote in May if she lost - a move that could bring down the government.

Johnson criticized Prime Minister Theresa May's outline for negotiations presented earlier this month at her Chequers retreat, saying it was a plan for Brexit "in name only".

The MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip resigned last week days after Cabinet ministers signed up to the PM's Chequers plan.

"We have changed tack once and we can change again".

Earlier this month, on the 9th, rumours spread that Mrs May was about to face a leadership challenge from pro-Brexit Tories as she met in private with the 1922 Committee.

Turmoil over Brexit plans has hit the pound.

"Boris Johnson's after-dinner speaking fee must have plummeted faster than the pound after that dreary, self-important resignation speech", said opposition Labour MP David Lammy.

"I understand she's also criticised me for looking for a solution that is workable, I have to say I disagree with her on that - I think what we need is a solution that is going to work for the United Kingdom to ensure we leave the European Union and embrace that bright future".

Ministers argued the amendment would put "massive restrictions" on its ability to forge "an independent trade policy" after Britain leaves the European Union next March.

"We dithered and burned through our negotiating capital", he said.

This is an agreement with a member of an opposite party that, as she can not attend the vote, they too will not vote so as to cancel each other out.

"It is absolute nonsense to imagine, as I fear some of my colleagues do, that we can somehow afford to make a botched treaty now and then break and reset the bone later on", said Johnson. "We have to have a compromise position that enables the country to get an agreement with the European Union", trade minister Liam Fox told BBC radio.

A spokeswoman for May said the amendments are consistent with the original plan.

She told members of the committee: "Over August and September we are going to be releasing a number of technical notifications to set out what United Kingdom citizens and businesses need to do in a no deal scenario, so making much more public awareness of the preparations".

In his letter, Mr Davies continued: "Failure to keep our promise to the electorate will nearly certainly lead to the catastrophe of Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister and I can not sit back and allow that to happen".
