Nigel Farage: "Boris Johnson Clearly Wants To Be Prime Minister"

Nigel Farage:

Mr Johnson also accused some members of the government of using the issue of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland to "stop a proper Brexit", but added: "They have been rumbled".

He said that the real "scandal" was "not that we have failed, but that we have not even tried" on Brexit.

Former foreign secretary and Brexit hardliner Boris Johnson penned a renewed attack on Britain's government Monday (3 September), writing in the Daily Telegraph that the United Kingdom has "gone into battle with the white flag fluttering over our leading tank".

Ms Patel, a leading pro-Brexit voice in the lead up to the referendum in favour of Britain's exit from the European Union in June 2016, has previously called on the government to be "tougher" in its negotiations with Brussels.

Mr Johnson resigned from the government in July in protest at the deal agreed by the cabinet at Chequers, the prime minister's country residence, as the UK's preferred way forward in negotiations with Brussels.

Nigel believes Mr Johnson's article was a "naked bid for the leadership".

Meanwhile, allies of Conservative election mastermind Lynton Crosby - who helped May's leadership rival Johnson win two London mayoral campaigns - are reportedly helping Brexiteers plot to destroy the plan, according to The Sunday Times.

Writing in the popular Sunday newspaper, the British Prime Minister said she would not be pushed into compromises over Brexit that weren't in the national interest, seeking to allay fears among some in her Conservative Party that she would cave in to Brussels' demands in negotiations.

In another unwelcome intervention for Downing Street, the former education secretary Justine Greening described the proposals as "untenable" with only 15 per cent support from the public.

The Assembly's vote followed months of intense lobbying from internet companies, which warned that it would lead to higher costs. That could limit consumer choice or shut out upstart companies that can't afford to buy access to the fast lane, critics worry.

He spoke following a meeting between European Union chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier and the House of Commons' Brexit committee, of which Mr Rees-Mogg is a member.

Michel Barnier, chief negotiator for the European Union (EU), has said the Chequers plan will not work.

Lawmaker Damian Green, an ally of May, conceded the prime minister was in a tight spot.

And Home Secretary Sajid Javid said Tories should unite behind Mrs May's blueprint, pointedly adding: "For those who think there is a different way then they need to properly set out what alternatives there might be".

"What I want is a plan that's workable", Boles told the BBC. "Once again it is a case of leap before you look".

However, former taoiseach John Bruton has roundly condemned Mrs May's argument over a second Brexit vote. In an apparent attack on Mr Johnson, Mr Davis said it was not the time for "personality politics".

He said another problem was that many goods now come with services attached - meaning they were hard to separate in a trade deal.

"What matters in all of this is not the personality politics, it's the outcome at the end".
