Boris Johnson and Michael Gove revive Brexit 'dream team'

Justin Trudeau and British Prime Minister Theresa May walk in the Hall of Honour on Parliament Hill in Ottawa Ontario during a visit on Monday Sept. 18 2017

He also repeats the most criticised claim made by the Vote Leave campaign in the run-up to last year's poll.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd says she does not want Boris Johnson handling the Brexit process, accusing him of "backseat driving".

Other senior Tories have said Mrs May is "too weak" to unite her cabinet and run an effective government if she fails to sack outspoken Mr Johnson.

The timing has led to some speculation over whether Johnson is attempting to set himself up as a potential successor as leader of the Conservative Party.

Mr Johnson's announcement came hours after 29 were injured by a Tube bomb at Parsons Green station. The Prime Minister must spell out now how this will be paid for, or stand condemned for once again trying to mislead the British public.

"We would not expect to pay for access to their markets any more than they would expect to pay for access to ours", he wrote.

Rumours coming from her own party suggested that she could be forced to step down to allow another candidate to negotiate the UK's Brexit deal.

"This country will succeed in our new national enterprise, and will succeed mightily, " he said, dismissing any suggestion that Brexit will be reversed.

"Boris has had his say and he shows that energy and enthusiasm that he's famous for", Rudd told the BBC.

As negotiations with the European Union stall, Johnson sought to emphasis the benefits of Brexit against those who "think we are going to bottle it".

"Once we have settled our accounts, we will take back control of roughly 350 million pounds (475 million USA dollars) per week". "That is what she and her government will deliver". The holder of Foreign affairs does not even mention possibility of a transitional period after Brexit, that will surely be storyline of Theresa May in a speech in Florence. Johnson didn't mention such a phase.

May's authority was weakened after she called a snap election in June, only to lose her Conservative party's majority in the House of Commons. The Tories hold their annual conference October 1 with May's authority sapped by the botched election.

She is expected to give an update on Brexit negotiations and "will underline the government's wish for a deep and special partnership with the European Union once the United Kingdom leaves the EU", the prime minister's spokesman said.

He instead joined May's Cabinet, from where he's tended to take harder and more optimistic lines than her on Brexit. They think Brexit isn't going to happen.

"That's the gross figure we give to the European Union but they give us back half of it, about £10bn a year".
