Johnson says it’s not too late save Brexit

Former British prime minister Tony Blair says it's time for Theresa May to admit

Former British prime minister Tony Blair says it's time for Theresa May to admit"there's no way out and call another Brexit referendum

Boris Johnson has issued a call for Theresa May to tear up her "miserable" plans for close relations with the European Union after Brexit and return to the "glorious vision" of Global Britain which she set out past year.

After an incredibly hard fortnight in which it's been felt like each day could be the Prime Minister's last, Theresa May is in Northern Ireland for a two day visit.

"The reason we say that is because overflight rights are not guaranteed by the European Union, rather by multilateral treaty which both ourselves and Ireland have signed up to".

Resignation statements like Mr Johnson's have previously been used by former ministers to inflict a departing blow on prime ministers with whom they have clashed. May has proposed instead that any backstop should apply to the whole of the UK.

"There is time. And, if the Prime Minister can fix that vision once again before us, then I believe she can deliver a great Brexit for Britain with a positive, self-confident approach that will unite this party, unite this House and unite this country as well".

Mrs May will say that following the publication of the Government's white paper agreed at Chequers, it is "now for the European Union to respond".

At the same time, the reappearance of infrastructure on the Irish border would significantly increase the risk of sectarian violence.

Conservative International Trade Minister Liam Fox argued that the legislation would provide "stability and continuity" to companies until the United Kingdom could reach its own trade deals at the end of the 21-month transition period following Brexit, which will be enacted on March 29, 2019.

May is battling to unite her Conservative Party around her Brexit blueprint formally unveiled last week following months of cabinet infighting.

"Contingency planning for the worst possible outcome is not a sign of mistrust in the negotiations", it said. Our Brexit deal is not some long wish-list from which negotiators get to pick and choose.

Leading Tory Remainer Anna Soubry called for a government of national unity to deal with Brexit made up of Plaid Cymru, the SNP and "other sensible, pragmatic" MPs. "What we are doing at the moment is working for a deal", she told members of the House of Commons liaison committee.

"From the start of the negotiations, the UK Government has put Northern Ireland's unique circumstances at the heart of our negotiations", a statement said.

The EU's proposal on the backstop would have kept Northern Ireland in the customs union and the single market for goods. "We need an all-weather insurance policy", he added.

The EU has warned business to get ready for Britain crashing out of the bloc without agreed terms, although officials and diplomats still think some kind of deal is more likely than not, if only because the cost for both sides would be so high.

Within days Michael Heseltine challenged Mrs Thatcher for the Tory leadership and she was eventually ousted and succeeded by John Major.

Tuesday was also the second day running May faced revolt from backbench Tory lawmakers, after they failed on Monday by three votes to enact changes to a crucial post-Brexit customs bill.

But the pro-EU lawmakers lost Tuesday by six votes - 307 to 301.

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". "And nothing will undermine our commitment to protecting the Belfast Agreement".
