UK's Boris Johnson says: Chuck PM May's Brexit plan

The former foreign secretary accused the Prime Minister of trying to "cheat the electorate" as he said that her plan will lead to the rise of the far Right and far Left.

"It's between a Conservative Party, the party of the union, that wants to spread opportunity and bring people together and Jeremy Corbyn, a man who sanctions and tolerates division and hate".

European Union leaders have rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's plan for close post-Brexit trade ties, and demanded she rework the ideas before a summit next month.

Mr Johnson demonstrated his power over the Conservative membership, attacking Theresa May's plan for Brexit in an address that drew around 1,000 delegates at the party's conference in Birmingham.

Mr. Johnson got a rapturous reception on Tuesday when he unloaded on Ms.

"This is not pragmatic, that is not a compromise".

Mixing breezy jokes with biting one-liners that always stopped short of attacking May herself, the former foreign minister called her strategy "dangerous and unstable".

He added: "My fellow Conservatives, this is not democracy". This is not what we voted for. "This is an outrage".

And he urged Tory delegates to persuade the Prime Minister to "chuck Chequers" and return to the hard Brexit blueprint she first set out in her Lancaster House speech, when she said she would take the United Kingdom out of the customs union, single market and jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.

He also criticised Jacob Rees-Mogg for pledging financial security in Britain after Brexit at the same time as opening an investment fund in Ireland to transfer his money over. On Tuesday, he went so far as to outline his vision on housing, reducing crime and cutting taxes, taking jabs at some of Ms. Many took it as mocking May's assertion that the most mischievous thing she had ever done was run through a field of wheat as a child.

"I believe that we can get a deal", she added.

Scottish Secretary David Mundell said people were "concerned about Mr Johnson's behaviour".

Mr Johnson's visit to the party conference is a one-day event amid mounting criticism of his recent actions in speaking out against the government. Sitting nearby, Roger Kendrick agreed.

But her bid to revitalize her domestic agenda and steal the initiative from the main opposition Labour Party has been overshadowed by the party splits over Brexit.

"For the first time in decades, it will be this country that controls and chooses who we want to come here".

May acknowledged that Johnson's speech had made her "cross" but said she was sticking to her Brexit blueprint.

"We need to have a deal".

The pressure is now on Ms.

Mary Wylie, a local party official from Devon in southwest England, said Johnson's speech expressed "my Conservative philosophy".

"What it says is, if a conflict situation, armed conflict obviously, appears to be arising, the Northern Ireland people themselves will have a referendum", he said.

But despite seeming to rally party members to his cause by calling on Conservatives to return to their traditional values, he disappointed some supporters by saying he would stick by May at least for now.

"We believe that we have produced a proposal which can operate within the current framework of technology and administration to deliver a free flowing border with no infrastructure on the island of Ireland within the boundaries of a free trade agreement", Baker told BBC radio.

In a rhetorical flourish, he said the Chequers Plan would result in the equivalent of Britain being "paraded in manacles down the Rue de la Loi [in Brussels] like Caractacus".
