Johnson wants maximum 2-year Brexit transition

Johnson wants maximum 2-year Brexit transition

A YouGov poll published this week found Mr Johnson is now favourite to be the party's next leader among Conservative party members.

The head of the biggest party group in the European Parliament called for the sacking of British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson for stoking confusion over the Brexit talks. Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Hammond described Johnson's views on limiting the period to two years as "a rhetorical flourish" and said the government would stick to the position outlined by May in Florence.

Ms May will tell her party she will not "hide from a challenge" and demand that after a lengthy period of soul-searching following the election that ministers "shape up".

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson's repeated Brexit interventions in recent weeks have prompted calls from some in the party for him to be replaced.

Boris Johnson, Britain's Foreign Secretary, arrives for a cabinet meeting at 10 Downing Street in London, September 21, 2017.

Last week, the Labour Party smashed it with their united, cult-like, and momentum-fuelled party conference, but the Tories clearly do it better.

The Conservative government moved quickly after the election to confirm a swathe of LGBT rights reforms, relaxing the gay blood ban and reviewing.

"I think he says things to stir up debate".

But a senior party figure told Sky News privately that the conference has "felt flat", while another said the first day of speeches and announcements was "dire".

After days of angry asides from colleagues over his eve-of-conference intervention on his Brexit red lines, Mr Johnson chose to fall in behind Mrs May.

He wants the adopt a low-tax, low-regulation economy outside the EU's single market, says Britain must not pay to get tariff-free trade with the European Union and insists that any post-Brexit transition period should not last "a second more" than two years.

I concur. At the Bristol Downs Festival's Information stage, I made the point that the Conservatives did not offer anything to young people like Corbyn did, and I continued to say that it was vital that CCHQ put priority on winning over the youth vote unless we wish to seek annihilation at the next election.

"Please sack Johnson because we need a clear answer for what is the British position".

Pressed on Johnson's decision to speak to two major newspapers, the minister said: "It's not the strategy I would adopt".

"Boris is absolutely behind the Florence speech and the line that we have taken", she said in reference to a speech she delivered in Italy in September about her approach to Brexit.

Ruth Davidson, who leads the Conservatives in Scotland, was asked about the DUP during an interview with The Times Red Box. And he drives home the case for Brexit, as the patriotic response to an evolving Euro-federalism — “an attempt not just at economic but political integration of a kind that the British people had never bargained for” — that was the impetus for the “Independence Day” referendum results of June 2016.
