United Kingdom proposes European Union treaty to protect security ties

And the pressure is mounting. The Tory MP Crispin Blunt, who was ready to back Johnson for the Tory leadership previous year, came to his defence, stating that the article merely repeated government policy.

Only days before Prime Minister Theresa May is due to speak in Italy about Britain's planned European Union departure, Mr Johnson on Saturday published a 4,300-word newspaper article that roamed well beyond his ministerial brief and, in some cases, the approach set out by the government.

Johnson came under fire from some members of his own party for the timing of the article - a week before May's speech and a day after a terror attack on London - as well as for its content.

Jeremy Corbyn's spokesperson said the 10-point article by Johnson "exposed the Tories' real Brexit agenda - a race to the bottom in regulation and corporate tax cuts to benefit the wealthy few at the expense of the rights of the rest of us".

Johnson's dramatic intervention is clearly meant to win support from Brexit hardliners in the party.

British officials want a new treaty between the United Kingdom and the EU that will maintain all the benefits of membership of Europe-wide bodies like Europol, Eurojust and the European Arrest Warrant.

In a letter sent in response to the foreign secretary's restating of the controversial statement that there was £350m a week that could be spent on the NHS, Mr Norgrove said he was "surprised and disappointed" to see the claim repeated.

U.K. Statistics Authority chief David Norgrove called the figure "a gross misuse of official statistics".

In the end he would depart in the final over of India's innings but not before he made made a brilliant 79 runs. Australia were reduced to 29/3 with debutant opener Hilton Cartwright (1), Smith and Head back in the pavilion.

Almost half of the 123 financial firms surveyed told Reuters they would have to move staff or restructure their businesses because of Brexit, which is due to take place in March 2019.

Gambling firm Paddy Power on Monday made Johnson the clear favorite to be the next minister to leave cabinet.

The letter was signed by firms such as Ford, GE, IBM and Johnson & Johnson from across industry.

Brexit secretary David Davis said that a time of risk to terrorism, Britain needed to secure the legal pact it had with Europe as its membership of Europol threatens to become leverage in Brexit negotiations. It has been touted by May's allies as a key address, created to set out Britain's latest position.

The Prime Minister's allies said Mr Johnson would keep his job and suggested "people should calm down" despite his comments potentially undermining a major speech on Brexit by Mrs May this week.

But Mr Johnson has received the backing of prominent Tory Leavers for insisting Britain should not pay for access to the European market after Brexit.

After three rounds of negotiations over the summer that left the European Union and business leaders frustrated by the lack of progress, there is clearly a need to move forward.

"It would be very nice if we could get a clear message on where the British are" on their financial obligations with the EU, Danish finance minister Anders Samuelsen said in an interview in Copenhagen on Friday.
