"It is not too late to save Brexit", Johnson told parliament in his resignation speech on Wednesday.

After her 90-minute grilling at the liaison committee May faced a meeting of her backbenchers, winning support from a lot of them. It said that it objected to the amendment because it requires the government to take "all necessary steps" to join, while the government wants to join only if it can negotiate reasonable terms.

In a much anticipated speech, Mr Johnson attacked the prime minister's approach but said she could still command support for her leadership.

Johnson resigned from government rather than accept May's plan. Said Mr. Johnson: “We are volunteering for economic vassalage.”.

The government of Prime Minister Theresa May overcame a new rebellion in her government's ranks by defeating, by only 307 votes against to 301 in favour, a largely Conservative amendment to remain in the customs union, which would have destabilized its negotiating leverage with Brussels.

After narrowly escaping defeat in parliament earlier this week over her proposal for leaving the EU, May signaled she would not drop her proposal for Britain's future relationship with bloc - the biggest shift in its foreign and trade policy for nearly half a century.

Johnson said he was fully supportive of Prime Minister Theresa May in January 2017 when she laid out in an ambitious speech a desire to strike the right deal for Britain with the European Union after a majority of the public supported the break in a referendum months earlier.

May won votes on a customs and a trade bill in Parliament earlier this week, but suffered an unexpected defeat on a separate amendment, which means her government must now seek continued participation in the European medicines regulatory framework.

Tuesday was also the second day running May faced revolt from backbench Tory lawmakers, after they failed on Monday by three votes to enact changes to a crucial post-Brexit customs bill.

The close shave was May's third this week as she presents legislation on one of the most important and divisive decisions in modern British history with only a minority government, and a Conservative party at war with itself.

"At absolutely no point because Brexit continues to mean Brexit", May replied.

"We have got a mission in government and it is serious".
