Boris Johnson launches bid to REPLACE Theresa May as PM ‘by WEDNESDAY’

|AIWA! NO!|The former Foreign Secretary’s bid comes just ahead of the crunch vote on Theresa May’s Brexitdeal in parliament, which is widely expected to be voted down by a huge margin, putting her under pressure to resign.


Boris Johnson used a speech at the Conservative party conference in Birmingham to launch an explosive attack on the prime minister’s Chequers plan for Brexit. 

Mr Johnson blasted failures in Mrs May’s government, speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, slamming her Brexit plan for leaving the UK “a diabolical negotiating position” and giving the EU the chance to “blackmail” Britain.

Setting out his alternative vision, he said the UK should not pay the promised £39 billion divorce bill to Brussels until the UK is allowed out of the backstop and a future trade deal is agreed.
