British Prime Minister Theresa May will try to salvage her Brexit strategy on Wednesday when she takes the stage at the Conservative Party conference to fend off rising opposition to her plan and hang on to her shaky leadership.

BORIS JOHNSON has denounced Theresa May's Chequers plan for European Union withdrawal as an "outrage" that would leave the United Kingdom "locked in the tractor beam of Brussels".

In his speech at the Tory conference in Birmingham today, Mr Johnson will call on Mrs May to "chuck Chequers" after he earlier controversially described the plan as "deranged".

The wide-ranging speech was widely seen as Johnson's audition for May's job before the party faithful at their annual gathering.

Barely a month has gone by when there is not speculation of a plot against her, much of it focused around Johnson, a leading Brexit campaigner and former mayor of London. It is risky and unstable - politically and economically.

'My fellow Conservatives, this is not democracy.

He said: "I write this with heavy heart, however we now need a proper leadership election and to move on". "This is an outrage".

'We will give credence to those who cry betrayal, and I am afraid we will make it more likely that the ultimate beneficiary of the Chequers deal will be the far-right in the form of Ukip, and therefore the far-left in the form of Jeremy Corbyn'.

He also confirmed he had offered to give evidence for former Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale in a legal action brought by pro-independence blogger Stuart Campbell of the Wings Over Scotland site. On Tuesday, he went so far as to outline his vision on housing, reducing crime and cutting taxes, taking jabs at some of Ms.

It clearly mocked May, who once said the naughtiest thing she had done was run through a field of wheat.

Mr Thomson, the MP for Aberdeen South, lashed out at his MP colleagues as Tories loyal to Prime Minister Theresa May stepped up their attacks on former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

But in an explicit warning that a hard Brexit would derail future spending plans she said this could only happen "when we've secured a good Brexit deal for Britain".

On Tuesday, home secretary Sajid Javid announced plans to prioritise immigrants' skills, rather than their country of origin, in a post-Brexit shake-up of the visa system and immigration.

Mrs May will be hoping her big keynote speech goes more smoothly than a year ago when a coughing fit forced her to stop on several occasions and she was also interrupted by a prankster who handed her a mock P45. Sitting nearby, Roger Kendrick agreed.

Mr. Johnson's allies have been quick to argue that he isn't trying to push out Ms. "That's what we've all been saying throughout this conference", Steve Baker, who recently resigned from Ms.

The Prime Minister will say: 'Millions of people who have never supported our party in the past are appalled by what Jeremy Corbyn has done to Labour.

And he added: "The Prime Minister seems incapable of doing this".

The pressure is now on Ms.

"Then the thing we saw immediately afterwards was that tweet about the Strepsils and the speech and we laughed along with her and she showed that humorous side of her".

Speculation is growing that London may accept some checks on goods passing between Northern Ireland and the rest of Britain, to avoid them on the border with European Union member Ireland.

Some of Johnson's supporters, while welcoming his speech, said they believed now was not the time to launch a leadership bid against May.
