Boris Johnson comments offensive, says Coveney

But Nadine Dorries, a Brexit supporter, said Mr Johnson's opponents were "terrified of his popular appeal" and if Mr Johnson became leader and prime minister he would deliver a "clean and prosperous" Brexit.

The prominent Brexiteer's latest assault on Mrs May's handling of negotiations with Brussels will fuel speculation about his own leadership ambitions.

Lord Heseltine, who served as Defence Secretary in the Thatcher Cabinet, predicted earlier this week Mr Johnson would succeed Mrs May but his premiership would divide the Conservative Party.

"We have agreed to the EU's timetable; we have agreed to hand over £39 billion, for nothing in return".

We are reaching the point now where it is extremely hard to see how we can rescue the Conservative Party from a catastrophic split if the Chequers proposals are carried forward, he said.

Under the EU's version of the plan, if no trade deal with the United Kingdom resolved the issue, Northern Ireland would effectively remain part of the single market.

He said Mr Johnson was a member of government at the time and it was "extraordinary" that he was now taking "such an aggressive position". The rift deepened this week with Johnson comparing May's plan to a "suicide vest" on Britain's constitution.

USA reached out to China for new trade talks, sources say
After these were first proposed several weeks ago, Apple warned that they'll likely increase the cost of many of its products. However, the last round of talks, between mid-level USA and Chinese officials in August, failed to reach any agreement.

Some Brexiteers say those proposals would ensure the EU kept control over swathes of the British economy and thus run counter to the spirit of her manifesto pledge to leave the EU Customs Union and the Single Market. On Wednesday, the ERG will put forward its own plan for resolving the Irish border question. "Comparing the PM to that isn't amusing".

However, Mr Coveney expressed alarm at the comments, particularly over their potential implications for Northern Ireland and the Republic.

The Mid-Norfolk MP said there should be a leadership contest next summer, lasting no more than three months, to determine the party's future direction, and he was prepared to throw his hat into the ring.

It was not used after his campaign failed to get off the launch pad, but the newspaper reported the 4,000-word "war book" was circulating in Westminster last week amid claims "black ops" attacks were being planned against the prominent critic of the Chequers plan.

Former Brexit Secretary David Davis said he expected Prime Minister Theresa May's government to change course on Brexit after an informal meeting of European Union leaders in Salzburg next week. "We have been involved in far more significant tumult than this". "Theresa May has enormous virtues, she is a fantastically dutiful prime minister and she has my support - I just want her to change one item of policy".

Hopes are fading that Britain and the EU can strike a deal at an EU summit in October as originally planned, but there are growing expectations that the EU is planning another meeting for November.
