Boris Johnson returns to Brexit debate with polemic attacking 'bottler' Remainers

And the Foreign Secretary himself said in a tweet on Saturday that he was "looking forward to PM's Florence speech" and was "all behind Theresa for a glorious Brexit".

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Mr Johnson said he was breaking his silence about how he thinks Brexit will make Britain the "greatest country on Earth".

Boris Johnson has been accused of "backseat driving" by Home Secretary Amber Rudd over his 4,000-word Brexit blueprint.

"As we prepare to leave the European Union it is therefore vital that we agree a new way to ensure continued security, law enforcement and criminal justice cooperation", she said.

Meanwhile, 120 firms have signed a letter to Brexit Secretary David Davis and Brussels' lead negotiator Michel Barnier warning that jobs could be lost unless progress is made on a transitional deal between Britain and the bloc. The Prime Minister must spell out now how this will be paid for, or stand condemned for once again trying to mislead the British public.

He predicted Britain will succeed in its new national enterprise, adding: "and will succeed mightily".

"What I meant by that is I don't want him managing the Brexit process", she told told BBC1's The Andrew Marr Show.

Johnson wrote in the article, which was published behind the Telegraph's paywall, that the separation should take the form outlined by the prime minister in January and which he argued the majority of Britons voted for in June 2016.

Britain's interior minister Amber Rudd said on Sunday that Boris Johnson was not starting a leadership bid by setting out his plans for Brexit in a newspaper article, adding that his intervention was "absolutely fine".

In his statement overnight, Davis said: "Effective global cooperation is absolutely crucial for both the United Kingdom and the European Union if we are to keep our citizens safe and bring criminals to justice". The holder of Foreign affairs does not even mention possibility of a transitional period after Brexit, that will surely be storyline of Theresa May in a speech in Florence.

Ending jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Britain was a key rallying cry of pro-Brexit campaigners ahead of last year's referendum on EU membership, along with calls to cut migration to the country.

"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.
