Theresa May Gets "Plan B" From UK Ministers For No-Deal Brexit Scenario

On Friday, UK Transport Minister Jo Johnson said he was standing down after calling the government's Brexit plan a "terrible mistake".

But now there are fears more high profile ministers could follow the Johnson brothers out of the door.

"In the campaign there were undoubtedly promises made that were shown to be undeliverable - no one can dispute that", Johnson told Radio 4 on Saturday morning.

"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".

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". "This would not be about re-running the 2016 referendum, but about asking people whether they want to go ahead with Brexit now that we know the deal that is actually available to us, whether we should leave without any deal at all or whether people on balance would rather stick with the deal we already have inside the European Union".

We'll just try to make the best of the weekend. "So I think the result in the second practice was not the real picture". I think we could have been a lot closer to them if I didn't have traffic in the last two sectors.

Boris praised Johnson's decision, saying they were "united in dismay" at Prime Minister May's handling of the Brexit negotiations.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said: "We warmly welcome Jo Johnson's support of the campaign to give the people the final say on the deal and a chance to exit from Brexit".

"He was a fantastic Minister to work with whilst we were at the Department for Education".

"Maybe three Johnsons. Dad's joined in as well, I understand".

The wish to avoid at all costs Leo Varakdar, it is the restoration of a border lasts between Ireland and the british province of Northern Ireland, a province that could temporarily stay in the eu customs union.

Mrs May is also under pressure from the DUP over her Brexit plans, as well as Eurosceptic Tories. He accused the PM of offering a choice between "vassalage and chaos" and called for a second referendum now that the reality of Brexit had become clearer. "It does not need a second referendum but backbone to deliver Brexit", tweeted Jacob Rees-Mogg, a leading pro-Brexit lawmaker in Theresa May's Conservative Party.
