May suffers new blow as minister resigns over Brexit

Still under the No Deal scenario "Britain stands on the brink of the greatest crisis since the Second World War", he said.

In a tweet, Boris said he had "boundless admiration" for his brother and that they are "united in dismay" at the indefensibility of May's position even though they disagree over Brexit.

Speaking to LBC, the father of former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and former Transport Minister Jo Johnson claimed his younger son's resignation was dictated by the incapability to support Theresa May's Chequers Brexit proposal.

"It is entirely right to go back to the people and ask them to confirm their decision to leave the European Union and if they choose to do that, to give them the final say on whether we leave with the prime minister's deal or without it", he added. He also says it's imperative to hold a second referendum on whatever deal the prime minister reaches with the bloc.

Tory MP Anna Soubry, a vociferous Remain campaigner, said she had "huge respect" for Mr Johnson, telling The Guardian: "Jo isn't the only minister who shares these views and I hope others will follow his lead".

He published an article online in which he warned that the Prime Minister was presenting the country with "two deeply unattractive outcomes - vassalage and chaos".

Trump Begins Paris Visit With Attack on France’s Emmanuel Macron
For Sunday's anniversary, Mr Trump is to join world leaders at a ceremony in the shadow of the Arc de Triomphe. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev agreed to.

Taking a thinly-veiled swipe at his brother, Johnson said the type of Brexit deal promised by his brother and the deal May was trying to tie Britain into were very different.

There are real questions about how we will be able to guarantee access to fresh food and medicine if the crucial Dover-Calais trade route is clogged up. May had been expected to rally her cabinet around her Brexit plan at a meeting originally due this week. While in September senior party figures indicated support for a second referendum couldn't be ruled out, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell indicated that it was only the terms of leaving that could be put to the public rather than whether Britain should exit or not.

"There's a widening gap between those politicians who believe the government's bad Brexit deal is what this country should accept, and those who believe we can do so much better at the forefront of the European Union and the world".

The terms Theresa May appears to have struck with Brussels would lead to Britain becoming a "vassalage state", Johnson said, or would lead to the United Kingdom crashing out on WTO rules on the other hand.

In response, a Downing Street spokesman said: "The referendum in 2016 was the biggest democratic exercise in this country's history".

Rail minister Jo Johnson has quit his post over the government's handling of Brexit.
