Boris Johnson believes May will be gone in a year

Boris Johnson Challenges PM Demands Short Brexit ‘Transition Period’			Leon Neal  AP		by Liam Deacon29 Sep 20170		29 Sep 2017		29 Sep 2017

He is insisting any Brexit transition period must not last "a second more" than two years, that the United Kingdom should not abide by new European Union rules during that time and Britain must not make payments to Brussels after it, adding that there can be "no monkeying around".

"There can be no monkeying around" with the transition period, Johnson said.

The Foreign Secretary is backed by 23 per cent of Tories to succeed the current PM according to a new poll, which was conducted by YouGov for The Times.

Mr Johnson said: "Am I impatient about it, do I want to get it done as fast as possible?"

Day's after the Florence speech Johnson said: You heard the prime minister say very clearly in Florence that she envisages the transition period being run under existing arrangements, that was the phrase she used, "The existing rules".

"Do I want the delay to go on longer than two years?"

With most polls putting the Tories and Labour neck and neck, May said a vote for Jeremy Corbyn as prime minister was too risky.

But he told the newspaper speculation about his leadership intentions had been "massively" overdone.

His decision to set out his own vision of a clean break with the European Union, just days before May's big Brexit speech in Florence, was widely viewed as a challenge to her authority.

The demands fly in the face of Mrs May, who pledged only a week ago that there would be a "status quo" transition period which would last around two years.

She told the Sunday Telegraph: "I will fight the next election".

On Saturday Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson also attacked Brexiteers who she said are "selling people short" by being over-optimistic about withdrawal, and said policy on should be left to "serious" people.

"If you're not prepared to walkaway you're just a pushover and they dictate to you".

Ruth Davidson has called for "serious people" to carry out the legwork of Brexit negotiations as the Conservative Party gears up for its conference.

Her latest ploy is to try and win over voters, especially young people.

May said: "As Conservatives, we have a vision of a country that works for everyone, not just the privileged few - precisely the direction I set when I became prime minister a year ago".

In it, she will acknowledge the result of the recent General Election was disappointing and commit to listening to the concerns raised by young people in particular.

My mission is to build a better future for everyone - and I intend to show we can do it, she said.

Ahead of her arrival in Manchester, northwest England, May acknowledged the "disappointing" election performance, but emphasised that she had a programme that she meant to see through.
