Boris Johnson Slammed for Claiming Brexit Will Help UK Save $475M Weekly

But a spokesman for the UK Statistics Authority said: "Sir David Norgrove does not believe the issues lie exclusively with the headlines".

Asked if she had read the article in The Daily Telegraph, she told BBC1's The Andrew Marr Show: 'Unfortunately not.

Damian Green, a close ally of the prime minister, told Radio 5live's Pienaar's Politics, that the timing of Mr Johnson's article "could have been better for all sorts of reasons not least the awful terrorist incident we've had". "He has not changed the conclusion set out in his letter to the Foreign Secretary".

Prime Minister Theresa May is set to release her Brexit plans this week.

In a letter organised by the Confederation of British Industry, executives from 120 businesses with more than one million employees again warned of a so-called cliff edge in which Britain leaves the European Union in March 2019 without a new trade deal or enough time for companies to adjust.

Opposition leaders said that Mr Johnson's unauthorised intervention, in which he appeared to suggest that Britain...

However, Sir David Norgrove, head of the statistics watchdog, was less impressed, writing to Mr Johnson to say he was "surprised and disappointed" he had revived the widely discredited referendum pledge that up to £350m a week extra could be spent on the NHS after Brexit and called it a "clear misuse" of official figures.

One senior Conservative MP told The Independent that Johnson was "daring her [Prime Minister May] to sack him" and attempting "to prove his credentials to the European Research Group in the party for an eventual leadership bid".

USA ambassador: North Korea will be 'destroyed'
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he was waiting for the North to express interest in "constructive, productive talks". Feinstein also said US missile defense "isn't perfect" and "I am concerned about the safety of the United States".

"There are some media observers - in this country and around the world - who think we are going to bottle it", he wrote, setting out a 4,000-word vision for Brexit Britain in the Telegraph.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson criticised the timing, it's publication coming as the terror threat level was raised to critical after a bomb injured 30 people on a tube train at Parsons Green in west London.

Mr Blackford said: "It is clear that the Tory Cabinet remains bitterly divided over the UK's Brexit negotiating position - a completely untenable position for the United Kingdom government to maintain at such an important crossroads for the country".

According to Norgrove, the use of the figure fails to take into account the difference between gross and net contributions.

He added: "All behind
Theresa for a glorious Brexit".

However Ms Rudd said she did not think Mr Johnson was laying the groundwork to challenge Ms May.

Jeremy Corbyn's spokesperson said the 10-point article by Johnson "exposed the Tories' real Brexit agenda - a race to the bottom in regulation and corporate tax cuts to benefit the wealthy few at the expense of the rights of the rest of us".
