The Prime Minister thanks Jo Johnson for his work in Government'.

In a video on Twitter, Johnson said the United Kingdom was "barrelling" towards an incoherent Brexit, leaving the nation "trapped" in an subordinate relationship to the European Union.

Speaking on Friday afternoon, Jo's father Stanley said: "I think he really thinks that the proposal that's on the table at the moment, the Chequers proposals, or whatever they want to call it, just doesn't hack it".

'We will not under any circumstances have a second referendum.

May is reportedly close to securing a divorce deal with Brussels, as time runs out to get an agreement approved by British and European parliaments ahead of the UK's planned departure from the EU on March 29 next year.

Britain's junior Brexit minister told a German media outlet he was optimistic that Britain and the European Union would reach a Brexit deal soon, adding that he hoped this would happen in the next three weeks.

"It has become increasingly clear to me that the withdrawal agreement, which is being finalised in Brussels and Whitehall even as I write, will be a awful mistake", he wrote.

In marked contrast to his brother, who remains firm that leaving the European Union without a deal would be no bad thing, and resigned because he believed the deal being negotiated was too soft, Mr. Jo Johnson called for a second referendum.

She has lost all authority and is incapable of negotiating a Brexit deal within her own party, let alone with the EU.

His brother Boris Johnson whose promises in the Brexit campaign Jo may well have been referring to, praised Jo's resignation, saying they were "united in dismay" at the PM's handling of the negotiations.

As campaigners step up pressure on the government calling for the public to be given another say on Brexit, the opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn dashed campaigners' hopes he could back another referendum.

The anti-Brexit petitioners aim to show that Britain has a legal unilateral option of staying in the world's biggest trading bloc once it is known what the outcome of Brexit negotiations is.

Describing Mrs May's Brexit plan as "a bad mistake" he accused the Prime Minister of negotiating a deal which wasn't "anything like what was promised".

Tory former deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine, who backs the People's Vote campaign for another referendum, said: "This is a very significant resignation".

"Theresa May is in office, but not in power". Here is a young politician with everything to gain from staying inside the government, pursuing his distinguished career, keeping his head down and waiting for events to take their course.
