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

  • Jo Johnson visits the the European Commission in Brussels

Johnson said the mooted deal had united him in "fraternal dismay" with Boris, who stepped down as foreign secretary in July over May's Chequers strategy. "There are many Conservative MPs who share Jo Johnson's serious concerns".

About 700,000 people rallied for a new Brexit referendum last month, the second largest march in recent memory, with consternation centred on the government's apparent failure to secure an acceptable deal.

British PM Theresa May's office on Friday reiterated her position that there will not, under any circumstances, be a second referendum.

"We've been hurtling towards a blindfolded Brexit for too long, so it's about time that politicians hand back control to the people of this country by giving them the final say on Brexit - with the option to stay and lead in Europe".

There is growing concern that Theresa May's Brexit deal will be voted down by MPs in December, even if it is approved by her Cabinet this week.

Rachel said other ministers might now question whether they can "in good conscience" take the country into "no-deal or into vassalage", stating that this is a "real moment for Parliamentarians". He called for a second referendum - a position which has been repeatedly rejected by Downing Street.

A Downing Street source said the government aimed to secure an agreement with the European Union soon, but not at any cost. Talks have stalled over the contentious Ireland border.

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

Instead, Johnson said it would be proper to give the British public a chance to vote again because of the way the Brexit negotiations have evolved. The better alternative, he believes, is to have another vote on whether the people want to actually leave now when they know the cost they will have to pay.

Instead, he said that MPs would be able to table motions, press amendments and trigger a no-confidence vote in order to prevent the United Kingdom leaving without a deal.

Unless the government and the European Union intentionally change course, Brexit will happen by force of law on March 29 next year, with or without a deal. British trade minister Liam Fox also issued a fresh warning that Britain may not agree a deal if a solution can not be found.

In marked contrast to his brother, who remains firm that leaving the European Union without a deal would be no bad thing, and resigned because he believed the deal being negotiated was too soft, Mr. Jo Johnson called for a second referendum.

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