Brexit Is "Careering Into The Jaws Of Death": Stanley Johnson

Boris Johnson backs brother Jo's decision to quit over Brexit

In an article sent to journalists, the MP for Orpington said he would vote against the withdrawal agreement which the prime minister was trying to agree with the European Union, describing it as "a bad mistake".

A Cabinet minister said leader of the pro-Brexit European Reform Group Jacob Rees-Mogg also supports the plan, while other Brexiteers said it could be worth exploring in more detail.

The MP for Orpington, who left his post as Transport Minister on Friday, said that those in government will be "reflecting hard" about whether or not to follow in his footsteps.

Prime Minister Theresa May this week faced pressure from her Westminster allies in the Democratic Unionist Party not to allow a customs border to split Northern Ireland from the United Kingdom after Brexit.

This time, it is Jo Johnson, the secretary of State for transport and the younger brother of the former head of the diplomacy of Boris Johnson, who slams the door.

He said the public should be given the chance to vote again on whether they want Brexit, and if so whether they accept what is on offer or choose to leave without a deal. "I've done so, if others feel that it's right for them to do so then good on them".


Mrs May is said to have told Brexiteers the plan was "not needed yet" but it received a "surprisingly warm" response from Chancellor Philip Hammond, a senior source told Sky News.

Johnson published an online article saying he will not vote for the deal May is likely to bring back to parliament within weeks but he would campaign for a second referendum on Brexit.

Speaking to Matt Frei, Stanley Johnson reiterated that Jo resigned because the government is not delivering Brexit and because he can not support the Brexit plan "in honesty".

SNP MP Stephen Gethins said: "Theresa May's authority is completely gone, and it is clear that her attempts to hobble together a deal can't even unite her Government, never mind the country".

But he said a second referendum is "not the way forward and is not supported by the public".
