Boris Johnson delivered his resignation speech to parliament today, saying “it’s not too late to save Brexit”.
The Foreign Secretary quit his post last week following the Chequers deal that saw David Davis and several other prominent Conservative MPs walk.
Johnson delivered the speech as rumours surface that he is building another bid for Theresa May’s job.
In parliament, he said: “It is as if a fog of self doubt has descended.
“Even though our friends and partners liked the Lancaster House agreement, even though the commentators liked it and the markets liked it, we never actually turned that vision into a negotiating position in Brussels.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
