United Kingdom may not get Brexit deal says trade secretary Liam Fox

REX Jo Johnson Minister of State for Transport Minister for London leaves the Cabinet meeting Cabinet meeting London UK-16 Oct 2018

Downing Street said last night it would not agree to a second referendum vote under any circumstances and reiterated a promise not to sign the United Kingdom up to any deal which could return a hard border to Northern Ireland.

Jo Johnson, the brother of Boris Johnson, has quit as transport minister in the British government and called for the public to have a fresh say on Brexit.

This is despite the fact he reportedly wrote the 2015 election manifesto for the Tory party promising to "honour the result of the [2016] referendum, whatever the outcome".

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.

"It has become increasingly clear to me that the withdrawal agreement, which is being finalised. even as I write, will be a awful mistake", he wrote in a stinging resignation statement.

Jo Johnson's decision to quit as transport minister saw pro-EU and arch-Brexiteers in the Conservative Party unite to attack the Prime Minister's stance.

He also says it's imperative to hold a second referendum on whatever deal the prime minister reaches with the bloc.

He started off his exchange with the president by saying that he will "challenge" Trump on his description of the migrant caravan. The official Twitter account posted a statement which read: "This President's ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far.

He said he will vote against the deal Mrs May brings back from Brussels, just days after her withdrawal agreement plan was signed off by her cabinet.

They also suggested he had been privately supporting the work of anti-Brexit campaign group, People's Vote, "for some time" despite being a government minister.

"I think then people will need to ask themselves what is it that is going to be in the best interests of those who sent them to Westminster to represent them, to ensure that we maintain living standards and investment and prosperity and employment in our country", Lidington added. I reject this false choice between the PM's deal and "no deal" chaos. He said: "I think a second referendum would be divisive, but it wouldn't be decisive".

It added: "The prime minister thanks Jo Johnson for his work in government".

Cabinet ministers have been visiting 10 Downing St this week to see details of the government's plan for the "divorce deal" and subsequent trading and customs relationship with the EU.

They also believe it would be easier to negotiate a new relationship with Europe and could cut the cost of leaving by slicing £20bn off the so-called divorce bill by only paying European Union membership fees up until 2021.

On Friday the DUP, whose support Theresa May relies on for votes in the Commons, said they could not support any deal which included the possibility that Northern Ireland would be treated differently from the rest of the UK.
