United Kingdom transport minister quits over Brexit

Instead, Johnson said it would be proper to give the British public a chance to vote again because of the way the Brexit negotiations have evolved.

"I mean volley to the left of the them, volley to right of them, and the Prime Minister charges on into the valley of death".

Mrs May has also come under fire from her own MPs and Cabinet ministers, who have demanded legal advice on the final terms of the UK's exit to ensure the EU can not keep Britain inside the customs union indefinitely.

"This is one of the most momentous questions we will ever face in our political careers". And everybody is thinking very hard about it.

But he denied that his resignation was an attempt to undermine May's position.

"My priority is really just to do my bit as a now backbench MP to try and encourage the country to pause and reflect before we do something that is irrevocably stupid".

Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson's brother and Orpington MP underlined that the country will be offered an agreement that will "leave our country economically weakened, with no say in the European Union rules it must follow and years of uncertainty for business", or no deal, "that I know as a transport minister will inflict untold damage on our nation". "No one can dispute that".

The former transport minister accused the Brexit campaign - which was led, in part, by his brother Boris - of offering the public "a false prospectus" that bears little resemblance to the reality of the deal that the prime minister is to present to parliament.

Mrs May is also under pressure from the DUP over her Brexit plans, as well as Eurosceptic Tories.

He told the Today programme: "My basic disagreement with Jo is about the need for a second referendum".

The Government has ruled out a second referendum.

"The export growth. reflects an increase in both goods and services exports, with goods exports to non-EU countries growing more robustly than to the European Union", the ONS noted.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a leading Brexiteer in May's party, told BBC Radio he rejected the call for another referendum but agreed with the criticism of the deal.
