Johnson was recorded saying: "He'd go in bloody hard ..." A spokeswoman refused to comment on the leaked recording of the Foreign Secretary's indiscreet assessment of Brexit.

He attacked the UK Treasury (finance ministry) as being "the heart of Remain", describing as "nonsense" and "mumbo jumbo" its fears of "friction at the borders" and "short-term disruption".

Asked about Mr Johnson's claim that officials in the Treasury were working against the long-term gains of Brexit, Lord Howard said: "If there are people in the Treasury who are doing that then they shouldn't be doing that, and I deplore that". Boris has strong views on Brexit but so do I.

"She is going to stick to what she has said, which is that we will leave the customs union and we leave the single market and we have to do that to capture the advantages of Brexit".

And he said that Prime Minister Theresa May's plans for a temporary backstop were not in line with the needs of Brussels, Dublin or Belfast.

"It's so small and there are so few firms that actually use that border regularly, it's just beyond belief that we're allowing the tail to wag the dog in this way", Johnson said.

Earlier a spokeswoman for May had said the Prime Minister has confidence in Johnson.

A source close to Johnson said he was speaking at a private dinner "so it is sad and very disappointing that it has been covertly recorded and distributed to the media".

Boris Johnson has suggested Trump would handle Brexit negotiations better than the British government.

"OK? I don't want anybody to panic during the meltdown".

A spokesperson for May, who is now out of the country at the G7 summit in Canada, told reporters the Prime Minister still had confidence in her foreign secretary.

The DUP last night slammed European Union negotiator Michel Barnier's rejection of the UK's backstop Brexit plan.

Mrs May told Channel 4 News: 'These are complex negotiations.

'I want to deliver for the British people, that's exactly what we are doing as a Government and if you look at the process of these negotiations - nobody ever said it was going to be easy'.

The proposal would see the United Kingdom match European Union trade tariffs temporarily in order to avoid a hard Irish border post-Brexit.

"As these comments show, he knows we're going to get shafted with a bad Brexit deal, he knows how much damage it will cause to our economy, he knows it will result in a hard border re-emerging in Northern Ireland, but he couldn't care less".
