Boris Johnson calls for tax cuts for ‘dynamic’ post-Brexit Britain

One of the trysts with the blonde aide took place on Valentine's Day when he wined and dined the aide at the exclusive Rules restaurant in Covent Garden

Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Tom Tugendhat, a former army officer who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, said that Mr Johnson had to "grow up".

Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson makes the front pages for the third day in a row - with Monday's papers reporting the latest fallout from his Brexit comments and his personal life.

"Comparing the PM to that isn't amusing", he said, taking on Johnson on Twitter. His article in the Mail on Sunday ramped up speculation that he plans to challenge her leadership.

Downing Street today joined the growing chorus of Tory anger over Boris Johnson's claim that Theresa May's Chequers strategy was like a suicide vest.

After Johnson's claim in the Mail on Sunday that the prime minister's Brexit plan has left the country "wrapped in a suicide vest" with Brussels' hand on the detonator, there has been no shortage of Conservatives willing to hit out at the top Brexiteer.

"No, but at a time where our country needs politicians of stature, of world standing, to deliver our exit from the European Union, I think for once in our country's history, I'm disappointed across the political spectrum with the leaders that we've got", said Bridgen.

'This marks one of the most disgusting moments in modern British politics. We look like a seven-stone weakling being comically bent out of shape by a 500lb gorilla'. "There is no justification for such an outrageous, inappropriate and hurtful analogy", Burt said. Again, I say, enough'.

But backbench Tory MP Nadine Dorries defended Mr Johnson in the face of what she was "vitriol", saying his critics were "terrified of his popular appeal".

Johnson's column appeared a day after he and his wife Marina Wheeler announced they had separated and planned to divorce.

'Under the Chequers proposal we are set to agree to accept their rules - forever - with no say on the making of those rules.

Many of Johnson's supporters hope his increasingly vocal criticism of May signals that he will launch a leadership bid while other Conservatives suggest his Mail article was exclusively to distract attention away from his marital difficulties. In 2004, he was sacked as Conservative vice chairman after lying about an extramarital affair.

He said the public finances are improving and "now is the time for this Conservative government to show how a post-Brexit Britain will be a happy and dynamic economy that fosters enterprise, that rewards the strivers and the innovators, and where people can hope to take home more of their pay to their families".

Mr Javid said he did not expect a no-deal outcome, adding: "I'm glad the police and other experts are looking into this and thinking what might happen in a no-deal scenario".

There were also further allegations over the weekend that a dossier about Johnson's colourful personal life created by a member of Theresa May's 2016 leadership campaign team had recently been circulating in Westminster.
