Foreign secretary Johnson says he will not resign

Foreign secretary Johnson says he will not resign

Mrs May will lay down her Brexit gauntlet in a major speech in Florence on September 22.

However, within minutes of the report's publication, Johnson was stopped by reporters in NY after returning from a jog and insisted he would not resign, describing the Cabinet as "a nest of singing birds".

Cabinet unity crumbled further following Home Secretary's Amber Rudd's weekend accusation that Boris Johnson was "back seat driving" when the PM said: "This government is driven from the front".

Asked by reporters in NY, where is he attending the UN General Assembly, whether he would resign if Mrs May's speech did not endorse his approach, he replied: "No".

The chair of the UK Statistics Authority Sir David Norgrove has written to Boris Johnson saying he was "surprised and disappointed" that the foreign secretary reiterated a highly controversial claim that Britain pays £350m a week to the EU.

When questioned on what she wanted Mr Johnson to do, amid reports he could be set to resign from the Government, Mrs May added: "What I want the Government to do is what the Government is doing, Boris and others, all very clear about the destination we have as a country".

And asked directly if he would resign, he replied: "No".

Theresa May would have sacked Boris Johnson under "normal circumstances" following his decision to publish his own personal vision for Brexit, a former Cabinet member has said.

Maria poses a significant threat to the Caribbean, the same areas that were impacted by Hurricane Irma a little over a week ago. National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson said the category 1 storm is essentially guaranteed to create rip currents.

Mr Johnson sparked controversy by writing a 4,000-word article for the Daily Telegraph reviving his claim that leaving the European Union will save Britain around £350m a week, most of which could go the NHS.

Mrs May and Mr Johnson are yet to meet since his dramatic intervention, which some viewed as the Foreign Secretary paving the way for a leadership challenge, or to force the Prime Minister's hand ahead of a Brexit speech in Italy.

However the Telegraph claims he has told friends the soft Brexit option would be unconscionable to him.

British bookmaker Ladbroke's (LCL.L) said on Twitter that they were offering 11/4 odds, reflecting a more than 73 percent chance, of Johnson either quitting or being sacked by next Monday.
