Brexit flames fanned by former UK foreign minister Boris Johnson

MPs return to the Commons from their summer recess today, amid growing party disquiet over the direction of the divorce talks.

Lord King said he feared biggest risk to the United Kingdom was that the referendum had failed to resolve the issue of Brexit and it "isn't going to go away".

No 10's intervention marks an escalation of the feud between the prime minister and her former foreign secretary, which has intensified since his attack on the government's Brexit plans, widely viewed as a renewed push for the top job.

"What we need at this time is serious leadership, with a serious plan".

Lord King, who has spoken favourably of Brexit in the past, tore into the last-minute preparations for a no-deal Brexit, warning they had left Britain without a credible bargaining position.

Boris Johnson and Sir Lynton Crosby, the man who ran Theresa May's 2017 election campaign, are reportedly plotting to oust the prime minister by destroying her Brexit vision.

Trade Minister Liam Fox, who also campaigned for Brexit but still supports Mrs May, said it was now up to the European Union to respond to the British proposal, when asked whether he thought further compromises would be necessary.

When people voted to "take back control" - a slogan that, while disingenuous, perfectly tapped into the mood of many frustrated voters - they did not vote for fewer rights, for economic chaos or for greater insecurity.

Formerly chief of staff to commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, the German bureaucrat was unexpectedly named secretary-general in February.

Raab concluded by saying Britain has presented its proposals in a spirit of compromise, adding: "So too they have proved challenging in some respects for some in the EU".

An exit deal between Britain and the European Union is within sight, Brexit minister Dominic Raab told parliament on Tuesday, as lawmakers from all sides told him the current negotiating plan had little hope of winning their approval.

He wrote: "The fix is in".

"The UK has agreed to hand over £40 billion of taxpayers' money for two-thirds of diddly squat", he said.

That means just 81% of Leave voters would back Brexit again, while the proportion of Remain voters who would vote the same way has held steady at 90%.

"The Chequers deal is now more unpopular with the British people than the poll tax was, and that is why it's untenable to take forward", she told BBC Radio 4's World at One on Monday, urging the Prime Minister to "accept it has not worked and look for alternative routes through".

One potential plan is to revive the campaign group Change Britain, which some see as a possible platform for Mr Johnson's leadership campaign.

Two of May's most senior lawmakers - Boris Johnson and David Davis - quit as foreign secretary and Brexit secretary respectively in July in protest at May's plan, saying it did not go far enough and would let down the millions of people who voted to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum.

His admission makes it more likely the prime minister will be unable to get any deal based on her plans through the House of Commons where she has a wafer thin majority and a number of her own MPs already openly oppose her proposals.
