  • Boris Johnson ramps up pressure on PM over Brexit and pay

"Am I impatient about it, do I want to get it done as fast as possible?"

His remarks go beyond the Cabinet position agreed ahead of Mrs May's Florence speech last week, where she endorsed a transition period and confirmed Britain would pay tens of billions into the European Union budget during that time.

"Do I want the delay to go on longer than two years?"

I can't imagine what it's like sitting around a table with their Brexit negotiating team because there are three or four people with three or four completely different opinions.

"Not a second more", Johnson was quoted as saying in the tabloid newspaper. "People get up unbelievably early and they work unbelievably hard, they deserve to be properly paid".

Mr Johnson's interventions on the eve of party conference are likely to infuriate Number 10, which has been struggling to keep the Foreign Secretary under control in recent weeks.

As Conservatives gather in Manchester for their conference, starting on Sunday, the prime minister said: "I understand the concerns raised, particularly by young people".

A document of more than 20 pages, written by Conservative Campaign Headquarters (CCHQ) and circulated soon after the party's election disaster, lays out plans to create a "well-equipped, disciplined and engaged generation of members".

Mrs May must make clear that British courts must no longer be bound by European Court of Justice rulings after the moment of withdrawal and that the United Kingdom will be free to negotiate, sign and implement trade deals with other countries during the transitional phase, the group argues.

Mr Johnson, who insisted his stance was not a leadership pitch after a poll of activists showed him well favoured for the top job, said Brexit needed to happen quickly. He said Britain's current national minimum wage of 7.50 pounds an hour, rising to 9 pounds by 2020, was "not enough", and called for public sector employees to get a pay rise, funded by layoffs.

He also said the final post-transition deal must not see the United Kingdom just copying Brussels rules to ensure easy access to the single market.

Johnson put himself back in the spotlight after setting out his Brexit vision in a 4,200 word article ahead of May's big speech this month.
