United Kingdom warns of limits to Brexit compromises

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond ahead of his speech this afternoon at the Conservative Party annual conference at the International Convention Centre Birmingham. PRESS ASSOCIATION Senior Tories hit back at Johnson over his claims Brexit plans 'deranged'

In a keynote speech at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, Raab was also critical of jibes directed at Prime Minister Theresa May.

After an awkward dance episode during her visit to Kenya in August had made the wrong kind of headlines, May chose to dance up to the podium to the beats of one of the Swedish band's most enduring songs in an attempt to set a lighter tone to her much-anticipated speech.

Advocates of "hard Brexit" argue that would make the United Kingdom a "vassal" of the European Union, whereas a clean break with the bloc would let Britain strike new trade deals around the world.

"If we all go off in different directions in pursuit of our own visions of the flawless Brexit, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all", she said. So, it is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week.

"Unlike the prime minister I campaigned for Brexit", said Johnson, the bookmakers' favourite to succeed May who on Friday declined to answer directly whether he would rule out a leadership challenge.

Mr Lewis said the "technical issue" had been resolved but "we are investigating the issue further and apologise for any concern caused".

"Those of us who do respect the result, whichever side of the question we stood on two years ago, need to come together now".

"But we have been very clear, we have got to deliver a deal for the United Kingdom that's good for our economy, make sure people continue to have the opportunity to have job security and job opportunities for the future and respect that referendum and deliver on getting back control of our border, of our laws, of our money and that's what this package does".

"And in so doing to believe in conservatism and to believe in Britain".

"Then there's Mr Rees-Mogg who's saying 'yeah, I have the proposals for the future of Brexit, ordinary citizens and their savings can be secure after Brexit!' and in the meantime he's opening for himself an investment fund in Ireland, to transfer his money to Ireland". Other promises included a "step change" in how cancer is diagnosed with a strategy aimed at increasing early detection rates, plus another freeze on fuel duty.

But he warned: "If we cheat the electorate - and Chequers is a cheat - we will escalate the sense of mistrust".

In a round of broadcast interviews on Monday, Mr Hammond was repeatedly asked whether Mr Johnson could ever become prime minister, and stated several times: "I don't believe that will happen".

"This is not democracy". This is an outrage.

"It isn't about taking back control, it's about fantasy world", Mr Hammond told ITV's Good Morning Britain.

Johnson's speech was a leadership pitch in all but name, and many Conservatives expect May to face a party coup soon after Brexit day - or even before, if there is no progress toward a deal. He will tell party activists he wants to slash taxes, crack down harder on crime and build more houses. "I believe we can get a good deal and that's what we are working for".

The Chequers agreement, named after the Prime Minister's country residence, was approved by Cabinet in July.

In a speech that will do little to temper talk that Johnson, who quit over May's Brexit plan, is launching a bid to replace her, he will urge the party against trying to "ape" the policies of the main opposition Labour Party.
