Boris Johnson sets out vision of Brexit

Shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer said: "Businesses across the country need certainty and stability but the glacial pace of Brexit negotiations is providing anything but".

The BBC understands Mr Johnson will not be sacked despite anger among some MPs. The Prime Minister must spell out now how this will be paid for, or stand condemned for once again trying to mislead the British public.

The home secretary said she had been too busy dealing with the terror attack in London to read the foreign secretary's article in Saturday's Daily Telegraph.

During the Brexit campaign Mrs Rudd said Mr Johnson was "not the man you want driving you home", and when pressed on Mr Johnson's latest actions she replied "you could call it backseat driving". The holder of Foreign affairs does not even mention possibility of a transitional period after Brexit, that will surely be storyline of Theresa May in a speech in Florence.

BusinessEurope, an umbrella group representing business federations across Europe, said companies needed certainty and time to prepare for future arrangements.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson appeared to make a lightly-coded attack on the intervention.

The Brexit heavyweights have told the prime minister to boost NHS spending by £10bn a year when Britain leaves the EU.

In his article, Mr Johnson said the United Kingdom should not be giving the European Union any money to gain access to the single market after Brexit and said he would like to see a lot of the money recovered from Brussels going to the NHS, repeating the disputed referendum claim that exit could provide an extra £350m for the health service.

But the in-depth article on life after March 2019 was released just six days before the Prime Minister sets out her Brexit blueprint in a speech in Florence.

May's deputy, Damian Green, said also weighed in on Sunday, saying that Johnson had written a "very exuberant" article but it is "absolutely clear to everyone that the driver of the auto in this instance is the prime minister".

A Government spokesman said: "We believe that the negotiations on the future partnership should begin as soon as possible".

He said if Britain did continue its membership of the single market and customs union it would make a "complete mockery" of the referendum.

Last month, EU Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier also warned that Britain would be forced to leave Europol and that the EU-UK split would weaken British security and counter-terrorism.
