Fox says United Kingdom may not get a deal with the EU

Consumer spending is the main driver of UK economic growth

Brexit negotiations have put Britain on the brink of the greatest crisis it has faced since the Second World War, Transport Minister Jo Johnson warned in his resignation letter. Conservative MP and vocal proponent of a second referendum Anna Soubry welcomed Johnson's move and urged others to speak out to.

Jo Johnson has resigned as transport minister over Brexit, saying the deal being finalised "will be a bad mistake". The critique from Johnson underscores the travails that May faces in getting any Brexit divorce deal, which London and Brussels say is 95% done, approved by her own fractious party.

Steve Baker, a former junior Brexit minister who resigned over May's so-called Chequers proposals on Brexit, and Sammy Wilson of the DUP wrote in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper that they could not back a deal if it treated Northern Ireland differently from the rest of the country.

However, there are concerns that a second referendum could embolden the far-right in the United Kingdom, while Eurosceptics point to examples where votes within EU member states rejecting greater federalism and austerity have been overturned in what they say is yet more evidence that there is a "democrat deficit" within the union.

Mr. Johnson the brother of former foreign secretary Boris Johnson whose resignation on July 9th sent the sterling to a 13 month low in August at 1.2662, said that there needs to a public vote on the terms of the UK's departure from the European Union.

"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".

Britain wants to strike an agreement with the EU as quickly as possible and it would be desirable for Britain and the EU to reach a deal at a special EU summit in November, he added.

"I think it is imperative that we now go back to the people and check that they are content to proceed on this extraordinary basis".

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a leading Brexiteer in May's party, told BBC Radio he rejected the call for another referendum but agreed with the criticism of the deal.

"This is a fascinating situation in which Jo and his sister are united in opposing their brother Boris and his Brexit plans".

"Maybe three Johnsons. Dad's joined in as well, I understand".

May's office rejected his call, saying Britain would not hold a second referendum on its European Union membership "under any circumstances".

Jo Johnson has hinted that other ministers might consider quitting in protest of Theresa May's Brexit plan - one day after he resigned.
