Boris Johnson to promise end to ‘Brexit groundhoggery’ in first stump speech

Gauke, who will run in his former South West Hertfordshire seat, said: "I think in reality the prime minister is so boxed in that the Conservative party would not allow him to extend the implementation period even if he wanted to and he shows no signs of wanting to do so".

"A Conservative majority after the next General Election will take us in the direction of a very hard Brexit", he told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

"They are people who have been left with oeuf on their faces because he succeeded in securing that deal in defiance of the sceptics and the cynics, and we can secure a free trade agreement by the end of 2020".

The alternative, he will argue, is a coalition between Labour and the SNP which would be likely to lead to another vote on Scottish independence - a key demand of the SNP - as well as more "political self-obsession" over Brexit.

He added: "The only way in which we can prevent chaos happening, the only way in which we can stop more referendums and more paralysis in Parliament is by having a working Conservative majority which can get Parliament working again". "That I believe would be disastrous for the prosperity of this country - whole sectors would become unviable".

"Johnson's plan means either years more negotiations or a disastrous No Deal Brexit in a year's time - yet the Prime Minister peddles yet another deception by pretending Brexit could soon be all over if people vote Tory".

"I'm impressed by (Lib Dem leader) Jo Swinson".

Boris Johnson is to use his first set-piece speech of the election campaign to stress a familiar roll-call of core policies, including a pledge to "end the groundhoggery of Brexit", spend more on the NHS and cut crime.

But Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove, said his former colleague was "a good friend, but I think on this issue he's got it precisely wrong". Johnson was scheduled to make a campaign speech at a factory in the West Midlands where, according to prepared remarks, he will say that the rest of the world can not understand why so much time has been spent agonising over Brexit.

The Prime Minister will also launch a blistering attack on the Labour leader before claiming a Corbyn led government will "cost of a billion pounds per month, and have two more referendums, one on Scotland and one on the European Union - an expense of spirit and a waste of shame, more political self-obsession and onanism".

Pressed on no-deal, he told Today: "It's a hypothesis which has been put by people who have consistently sought to raise bogies and to make people's flesh creep when the reality has been our Prime Minister has managed to secure a deal which puts us on a path towards, not just free trade and friendly co-operation with the European Union, but also good trade deals with other countries and other regional trade blocs".

The PM's use of the word "onanism" - another term for masturbation - has already raised eyebrows, with a Labour source telling The Independent: "We're not bothered by Johnson's obscure, crude insults because we've got our eyes on the prize - real change for the many not the few".

Tim Walker was due to contest Labour-held Canterbury but said he had asked his local party to withdraw his nomination papers as he wanted "no part" in allowing a Tory Brexiteer to win the seat - which had been held by the Conservatives since 1910 until Labour's Rosie Duffield won it in 2017 with a majority of just 187.

The Labour leader will come under attack from Boris Johnson on Wednesday.
