Nothing should change, says Britain in bid for post-Brexit security pact

Nothing should change, says Britain in bid for post-Brexit security pact

In a letter back to Norgrove, Johnson said: "I must say that I was surprised and disappointed by your letter... since it was based on what appeared to be a wilful distortion of the text in my article".

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has fueled speculation that he hopes to eventually succeed Prime Minister Theresa May by spelling out his Brexit goals days before her major policy speech on the topic.

Asked if he viewed himself as "Theresa May's Willie", a reference to Margaret Thatcher's remarks about her reliance on deputy Willie Whitelaw, he replied: "I was a huge admirer of Willie Whitelaw in my youth and absolutely I would be very content to have him as a role model".

"Why on earth would I.tell you what I talk to my children about?"

"Indeed, I think it would be illegal to go on paying them once we have left".

However despite all that, Johnson wrote in his Telegraph article: "Once we have settled our accounts, we will take back control of roughly £350 million per week". It would be a fine thing as many of us have pointed out if a lot of that money went on the NHS, provided we use that cash injection to modernise and make the most of new technology ...

"The only number that matters to me is the difference between 48 and the 52".

Boris Johnson is preparing to undergo "crunch talks" with Theresa May about the article he wrote about Britain's future after Brexit.

The Brexit secretary, David Davis, said: "Together with the European Union we have developed some of the world's most sophisticated systems in the fight against crime because cross-border cooperation is absolutely crucial if we're to keep our citizens safe and bring criminals to justice".

In his article, Johnson argues that London should not pay for access to the Single European Market - the so-called "divorce bill" - just as the EU will not pay for access to the United Kingdom market.

But Mr Johnson rocked the boat this weekend by spelling out his own vision for Brexit in an article for the same paper.

It has prompted claims in the Mail on Sunday that allies of the PM believed the move was "hostile" and "attention seeking".

Defence minister Tobias Ellwood also criticised Mr Johnson's actions, tweeting: "We are not witnessing our finest hour - at a testing time when poise, goal and unity are called for".

Sir Craig Oliver, former director of communications at Downing Street for David Cameron, said even if the genuine intention was to support the Prime Minister, it was obvious it would be seen in Westminster as a "direct challenge".

Later, after the motives and timing of his intervention were criticised, Mr Johnson insisted in a tweet linked to his article that he was "looking forward to PM's Florence speech".

Opposition Labour Party Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said the shuffle "adds a whole new dimension to government's chaotic approach to Brexit".

Writing for the Daily Telegraph, Mr Johnson suggested continued membership of the single market and customs union would make a "complete mockery" of the referendum result.
