Boris Johnson 'fed up' with media stories from 'so-called allies'

Boris 'fed up to the back teeth' with media stories from sinister 'imposters'

However, a spokesman for the Prime Minister clarified on Monday that May has full confidence in Johnson, a media report states.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has signalled that she could sack Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, a British newspaper said, as she tries to reassert her authority after a series of political disasters.

Asked what she might do with the Foreign Secretary in a reshuffle, Mrs May told The Sunday Times: 'It has never been my style to hide from a challenge and I'm not going to start now'.

The Prime Minister is desperately trying to hang on to her job following a disastrous party conference speech last week.

May faced fresh calls to quit following a chaotic speech at the conference that she nearly failed to finish after a prolonged coughing fit.

Conservative MPs came to her defense on Friday after former Tory chairman Grant Shapps plotted to drive her out (paywall).

"I don't think he has been totally on board, I think he has been deliberately trying to make the Brexit negotiations hard, stall them, obfuscate the issues".

In her first speech to MPs since a calamitous leader's speech in Manchester, Mrs May said the transitional period would be longer - "around two years".

Senior Tories from Home Secretary Amber Rudd to Environment Secretary Michael Gove have rallied behind her in recent days.

Former justice minister and fellow Brexiteer Michael Gove also urged Leavers to rally behind May, tweeting: "Strong statement from PM on Brexit - let's be pragmatic over implementation to secure maximum freedom to diverge from European Union in end state".

Another told the newspaper: "Brexit is absolutely crucial to democracy in this country now".

The Scottish Tory leader hit out at colleagues engaged in "tittle-tattle", adding that being a politician is "about delivering for the country, it's not and should never be about private ambition" - comments likely to be viewed as a swipe at Mr. Johnson.

Former prime minister John Major said he was increasingly dismayed by the plotting in the party by those driven by their own personal agenda.

"If they reject it, then it would indicate a stubbornness, an obduracy, on their part which would indicate that they probably don't want a deal", he said. Many believe she must quit before the next election, due in 2022, but worry that a leadership contest now will provoke an earlier vote that could result in a victory for Labour's Jeremy Corbyn.

On the subject of the attempted coup against her, Ms Davidson later told ITV's Robert Peston: "It's done now". That's fewer than the 48 needed to trigger a leadership battle, so if May is determined to stay, she can - for now. A reshuffle would be a huge distraction, we don't need to replace people for the hell of it'.
