However, his call for a new Brexit referendum was attacked by Mrs May's supporters.

Boris Johnson has written several newspaper columns rejecting May's plan as a form of "vassalage" that would leave Britain subject to European Union laws but without a say in their formation - a "colony status for the United Kingdom (where) for the first time in a thousand years our laws will be made overseas, enforced by a foreign court".

The brother of former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, a leading Leave voice, said the practical terms of Brexit that the British government managed to get from Brussels are a far cry from what people imagined when the voted during the 2016 referendum.

The MP, who is Boris Johnson's brother, said the United Kingdom was "barrelling towards an incoherent Brexit that is going to leave us trapped in a subordinate relationship to the EU".

"It has become increasingly clear to me that the withdrawal agreement, which is being finalised. even as I write, will be a bad mistake", he wrote in a stinging resignation statement.

Jenny Chapman, Shadow Brexit Minister, said: "Jo Johnson is the eighteenth minister to resign from Theresa May's government".

It could be deployed in a bid to avoid a chaotic exit if no agreement can be reached or if a deal is voted down.

"To present the nation with a choice between two deeply unattractive outcomes, vassalage and chaos, is a failure of British statecraft on a scale unseen since the Suez crisis", he wrote, adding that from the work of his own Department he was aware that a no-deal scenario could threaten the country's access to fresh food and medicine.

In the meantime, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said talks between London and Brussels were making progress.

While the majority of his constituents voted to leave the European Union, he rejected the idea that a vote on "what an idealised Brexit might offer" versus what was being delivered in reality, matched up to what many had voted for, describing the current state of things as an affront to democracy.

"The referendum in 2016 was the biggest democratic exercise in this country's history", the spokesman said.

A spokesperson for May's office said later Friday that under no circumstances would a second referendum be held.

"The Prime Minister thanks Jo Johnson for his work in Government".

Cabinet ministers have been visiting 10 Downing St this week to see details of the government's plan for the "divorce deal" and subsequent trading and customs relationship with the EU.

He called for a new public vote on leaving the EU.

And the DUP leader said her party could not support Theresa May's current position.
