Raab also updated MPs on steps the government has taken over the summer months to prepare for the unlikely event that a deal with the European Union is not reached.

The prime minister's spokesman insisted that the Chequers plan had received "a positive response" from a number of European Union leaders and said that Number 10 believes it "can carry the support of the House of Commons".

Dr Fox told the BBC: "Can you think back in all your time in politics where the Treasury have made predictions that were correct 15 years out, I can't, they didn't predict the financial crisis that happened, no-one could. It is very encouraging", said the Eurosceptic MP, according to The Times.

Research by NatCen based on repeated interviews with the same 2,048 people over two years found many voters who backed Brexit now anxious it would damage the economy.

For understandable reasons, the record industry offers precious few examples of a slightly more accomplished artist covering a bad song by an inferior singer, so it is hard to place Mr Raab's reworking of some of Davis's very worst lines in their appropriate context.In fact, after nearly half an hour's deliberation, one finally springs to mind, and that would be Johnny Cash's significant improvement of "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails.

"We want to leave with a good deal and we are confident we can reach one."
"There would be the immediate recovery of full legislative and regulatory control, including over immigration policy, and - whilst mindful of our legal obligations - a swifter end to our financial contributions to the European Union".

Any agreement Britain is able to strike with European Union will need approval from the British parliament - presenting a major headache for May who runs a minority government propped up by a deal with a small Northern Irish party and whose own Conservative party are deeply divided over Brexit. You can expect some to be taking place in the coming days.

The Commons resumed after the summer recess, with the pace of Brexit talks in Brussels intensifying in the hope of achieving a deal this autumn.

Johnson played a leading role in the Brexit referendum campaign and became foreign secretary in July 2016 as Britain began complex negotiations with Brussels on how it would depart the bloc.

"If we continue on this basis we will throw away most of the advantages of Brexit", Johnson wrote in the Daily Telegraph newspaper on Monday.

As a response to Mr Johnson's comments, Mrs May's official spokesman said the country needed "serious leadership with a serious plan" which was being provided by the Prime Minister.

In the course of the article, Johnson also accused unnamed members of the United Kingdom government of using the Irish border question to "stop a proper Brexit".

"Some say May's plan is too much of a compromise, a small number that it isn't enough of one, and still others now advocate a different compromise altogether", he said. Now we also risk losing our union.

Formerly chief of staff to commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, the German bureaucrat was unexpectedly named secretary-general in February.

Johnson fumed in a newspaper column that May's proposal to retain close economic ties with the European Union after Brexit would leave Britain locked in the trunk of a Brussels-driven auto with "no say on the destination".
