'It's not too late to save Brexit', Johnson tells United Kingdom parliament

Johnson said that would deliver "Brexit in name only" and leave Britain in a state of "economic vassalage".

But by sticking to her plan for a "business-friendly" departure that would keep Britain in a free trade zone with the European Union for manufactured and agricultural goods, May has thrown down the gauntlet both to backers of a cleaner break with the bloc, and to those who don't want to leave at all.

"It is not too late to save Brexit".

'Instead, we dithered and we burned through our negotiating capital.

In latest opinion polls UKIP has gained several points after its support collapsed in last June's snap general election which led to May losing her majority in the House of Commons.

Mr Johnson quit Mrs May's Cabinet on Monday last week, declaring that the plans for the UK's post-Brexit relations with Europe which she set out at Chequers would leave Britain a "colony".

May also sought to rally support in later meetings with Conservative Party backbenchers known as the 1922 Committee and with the Parliamentary Liaison Committee that includes the leaders of all the House of Commons select committees.

But May admitted that some aspects of the customs arrangements plan she has devised might not be ready by the end of 2020.

The UK government next week will begin to send consumers weekly newsletters on how to make sure they are ready for a chaotic Brexit, which will occur in the absence of an agreement with the EU.

Johnson, figurehead of the Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, urged May to change her Brexit strategy in a scathing assessment of the government's handling of the negotiations.

The most contentious part of Ms.

Mrs May was defeated on a separate amendment to her flagship Trade Bill, which will require her to seek continued United Kingdom participation in the EU's system for regulation of medicines after Brexit.

He listed as a top concern the lack of progress on the future of the border between European Union member Ireland and the British province of Northern Ireland.

The IMF's 4% figure is substantially lower than claims by Dr Liam Fox, the global trade secretary, who said yesterday that Ireland's economy could suffer by up to 8% if the European Union did not agree a deal with Britain.

"It is with much sadness that I have to say that have also lost trust in her to deliver the referendum result too", he said.

Mrs May narrowly survived a crunch Brexit vote in parliament on Tuesday, defeating an amendment introduced by its own backbench MPs to a future trade policy bill. It falls eight short of the 48 needed to trigger a vote.

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.

With the clock ticking, May gathered her warring ministers on July 6 and persuaded them to back a new free trade area on goods. May told the House of Commons on Wednesday after being challenged by a Tory MP.

Time is getting short for Ms. May.

"It is as though a fog of self-doubt has descended", Johnson said. We must try now because we will not have another chance to get this right'.
