UK PM rules out revoking article 50 on withdrawal from EU

PM May stays in charge as challenge to premiership collapses

British Prime Minister Theresa May signalled in an interview that she might demote Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, a Sunday newspaper said, after she faced an open rebellion from within her party this week.

Newton Dunn said he believes many Tories want Johnson out, because they "want people to stick together and stick behind the Prime Minister".

"If Boris Johnson was to leave or be demoted as the weekend press is suggesting, that would be showing May's leadership and that her vision of Brexit is the one that will be going forward and that markets should be aligned to", said Viraj Patel, an FX strategist at ING Bank in London.

"United in a mission to build a country that works for everyone and agreed on the approach that we take in Florence".

Rees-Mogg, who has been unwavering in his support of the Prime Minister, later told Sky News she had "gone further than I wished for her to go" on the ECJ. Former party chairman Grant Schapps said a group of Conservative lawmakers were plotting to remove May from the party leadership.

In his message, Mr Johnson said: "I am frankly fed up to the back teeth with all this". I do not know if they are really my friends and allies or if they represent some sinister band of imposters.

The plans directly contravene two of the four so-called Brexit "red lines" Mr Johnson revealed to The Sun just days before Tory conference.

'I heartily disagree with the sense, tone and spirit of what they are quoted as saying.

"But I think it is nearly unbelievable that the Prime Minister could have Boris Johnson in the position as Foreign Secretary".

'Whoever they are they do not speak for me'.

Mrs May has seen her authority over her Conservative Party erode since she called a snap election in June in which she lost her majority in Parliament.

Instead of sacking Brexiteer Boris the PM has been urged to get rid of the Remainer Chancellor Philip Hammond.

According to The Sunday Times, this will come after the European Council summit from 19-20 October and could bring fresh blood into the Cabinet.

He added: "Yes, we will have to mostly operate under existing rules during the transition but we will be able to negotiate proper free trade deals and business will be able to prepare properly for Brexit".

I think she very much wanted to do that before the election was called.

Mrs Bradley, who served the PM during their time together in the Home Office, dismissed reshuffle talk as "speculation", but delivered a public rebuke to Mr Johnson over his controversial remarks at a Conservative conference fringe event.

'I think he's been deliberately trying to make the Brexit negotiations hard, stall them, obfuscate the issues, I just don't think he's been 100 per cent on board'.
