  • Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt mocks Boris Johnson's bridge plan

British Prime Minister Theresa May will try to salvage her Brexit strategy on Wednesday when she takes the stage at the Conservative Party conference to fend off rising opposition to her plan and hang on to her shaky leadership.

He also hit out at migration plans to be set out by home secretary Sajid Javid at Conservative party conference, which will see preferential access for European Union citizens scrapped in favour of a "skills-based system".

Mr Johnson has been a vocal critic of the prime minister's Brexit plan since leaving the Cabinet, calling it "a moral and intellectual humiliation" when setting out an alternative last week.

'My fellow Conservatives, this is not democracy.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Democratic Unionist Party leader Arlene Foster said she wanted to see more focus on the positives of Brexit.

Namechecking Margaret Thatcher, the prime minister from 1979 to 1990 who remains a hero to many in the party, he called on the party to build more houses and, while courting business, he struck out at bankers over the 2008 financial crisis.

Pro-EU Labour Party lawmaker David Lammy said ending free movement from the EU was "an act of national self-sabotage that will lock us out of the world's largest single trading bloc that happens to be on our doorstep".

In an explosive intervention at the Conservative conference in Birmingham, the former foreign secretary warned that the only winners from a Chequers-style Brexit would be the far-right and far-left in British politics.

Mr Johnson used his appearance on Tuesday to make the case for greater economic freedom after Brexit and lower taxes.

As Mrs May celebrated her 62nd birthday, Mr Johnson was pictured jogging through a field near his Oxfordshire home, in a photo apparently created to mock the PM's famous memories of "running through wheatfields" as a mischievous schoolgirl. May, just change her Brexit plan.

"It's important to support the only politician I can see who is actively campaigning to give people the Leave that they voted for", said Colette Wyatt-Lowe, 71, a councillor from the outskirts of London, while queueing to hear Johnson speak.

Ms May, when asked in a series of broadcast interviews earlier about Mr Johnson's expected intervention, said she had expected his speech would be a "lively" event but declined to make any personal criticism.

"We Conservatives know that it is only a strong private sector economy that can pay for superb public services and that is the central symmetry of our one nation Toryism". A system that looks across the globe and attracts people with the skills we need. He told the hall the European Union had past form on bringing misbehaving members to heel, saying: "Do not believe that we can somehow get it wrong now and fix it later, get out properly next year, or the year after. Our [Brexit plan] does that, it's the only plan on the table at the moment that does".
