Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has accused Vince Cable of ‘peddling lies’, after the Lib Dem leader suggested Mr. Johnson was ready to resign over the Brexit free movement transitional deal.
Mr. Cable had said that there was a ‘deep, unbridgeable chasm between the Brexit fundamentalists and the pragmatists’, within the Conservative Party, and that ‘there is no cabinet consensus for moderation, and the rumours of Boris Johnson being about to resign fuel the uncertainty’.
A spokesman for Mr. Johnson said:
‘Boris and Philip Hammond are working closely to take the UK out of the EU, and are not going to be diverted from that important task’.
‘Vince Cable is making this stuff up, and maybe he should take more time to think up some policies rather than wasting his time on peddling lies’.
