Tory chairman seeks to play down impact of Boris Johnson's conference appearance

Many consider the Conservative conference a test of Theresa May's leadership

The Tory party conference has been dominated by Brexit, with former foreign secretary Boris Johnson launching a fresh attack against the Prime Minister's so-called Chequers plan for post-Brexit trade with the European Union, named after the British PM's country residence where it was agreed in July.

Johnson made no open suggestion he would challenge May, saying the party must back one of May's earlier Brexit plans which he says she has ditched, and said one of the few predictions the Treasury department had got right was that he would not be prime minister.

On the sidelines, the likes of the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson have been actively working against her. "I don't think it's good enough, it's not a good trade".

The comments "brought immediate comparisons on social media to the "lock her up" calls from Donald Trump's supporters about former United States presidential candidate Hilary Clinton", says Business Insider.

At the rally, fellow Tory MP Peter Bone said: "I will stand up for Brexit but we need to chuck Chequers".

Chequers also states that there would be no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, which will still be in the EU. Now is a time for a credible and serious plan, and credible and serious leadership.

Pro-Brexit flag-waving got a warmer reception at the Conservative conference, where party members mixed with lobbyists, think-tank academics and a group of men dressed as soldiers from the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 - a time when Britain was engulfed in civil war and Europe seemed far away.

Senior Conservatives have hit back at Johnson for his attacks on the government.

"And we saw a starkly one-sided approach to negotiation, where the EU's theological approach allows no room for serious compromise", said Raab. But with Brexit day looming on March 29, chances are rising that the United Kingdom could find itself crashing out of the bloc without a deal.

She said that "leaving without a deal - introducing tariffs and costly checks at the border - would be a bad outcome for the United Kingdom and the EU" - though she refused to rule it out.

Theresa May says Brexit deal 'cannot carve off NI'
In any contest, Mrs May would need to secure the backing of half her parliamentary party - 158 MPs - to continue as leader. After a grueling few days in which her plan for Brexit was repeatedly attacked by euroskeptics, Mrs.

It is feared that will lead to the UK's ports and airports being thrown into chaos, and even a shortage in medicines as well as perishable foods.

Mr Redwood said: "She has got to listen to it because this is the heart of the nation, the heart of the party".

A Lancaster House-style Brexit would be a "win-win" for both Britain and the EU, Mr Johnson said.

He said it would not lead to a hard Irish border, but critics have said it would create more border checks than there currently are now.

She accused May of failing to acknowledge the reality around her, saying: "It's the general election all over again".

Having cancelled several speaking engagements this week, Mrs May will also be hoping to exorcise the ghost of last year's conference horror show when she suffered a lengthy coughing fit and was interrupted by a prankster.

Her own future remains full of uncertainty.

"Since we have been in the European Community it has been a dream - just toss things in the auto and away you go", he said.

From his Whitford Fine Art gallery in central London, Mr Mibus said no deal would mean returning to the 1970s, before the Common Market was introduced.
