His intervention, exactly one week before the prime minister makes a major speech on Brexit in Florence next Friday, raised more than a few eyebrows among politicians and commentators.

A prominent Brexit campaigner in last year's referendum, Johnson also repeated the controversial claim that the government would be 350 million pounds better off per week once outside the EU.

"There are some people woefully underestimating this country, thinking". They think Brexit isn't going to happen.

He predicted Britain will succeed in its new national enterprise, adding: "and will succeed mightily".

Foreign Secretary laid out his own ideas for a "glorious" future outside the bloc.

Mr Johnson set out his personal manifesto for Brexit in a 4,000 word article in the Daily Telegraph, which he did not inform Mrs May about until it was published.

Instead, he publicly pledged his loyalty.

Ongoing membership of the European single market would make a "complete mockery" of the EU referendum result, Boris Johnson has said.

However, Mr Johnson seems to stick by the claim as he writes about the benefits the United Kingdom will enjoy once it breaks away from the bloc. The article made no reference to a transition period the government is expected to negotiate.

Remainers said the figure - printed on the side of a Leave campaign bus alongside the words, "Let's fund our NHS instead" - failed to take into account the full economic impact of being part of the European Union, and of the rebate.

In the article for the Telegraph, however, he said the United Kingdom would "roughly" be £350 million better off and it would be a "fine thing" if a lot of it went on the health service.

"Once we have settled our accounts, we will take back control of roughly 350 million pounds (475 million USA dollars) per week".

She is expected to give an update on Brexit negotiations and "will underline the government's wish for a deep and special partnership with the European Union once the United Kingdom leaves the EU", the prime minister's spokesman said.

Mrs Rudd also said Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson "has a point" when she criticised Mr Johnson for submitting the piece as London suffered another terror attack.

Will Tanner, a former adviser to May, said the timing was astonishing, self-serving and disloyal.

The "lie" most high-profile of campaign, target weekly of 350 million pounds of contributions to European Union to public health, figure, precisely as head of cartel in its list of promises.
