Mrs May takes to the stage at the Conservative Conference in Birmingham less than 24 hours after 1,500 delegates gave a thunderous standing ovation to Boris Johnson as he branded her Brexit plans a "constitutional outrage" that would humiliate Britain.

When questioned about the reports by BBC Scotland, Mr Mundell launched a scathing attack on Mr Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary earlier this year over the prime minister's so-called Chequers plan for Brexit.

Speaking at a fringe meeting hosted by the ConservativeHome website, Mr Johnson will say: "We must on no account follow Corbyn, and start to treat capitalism as a kind of boo word".

"If we cheat the electorate, and Chequers is a cheat, we will escalate that sense of mistrust."

May has shown little sign of moving away from her blueprint, and had tried to put on a show of unity at her party conference in the central English city of Birmingham.

The Prime Minister said she did not watch Mr Johnson's address, preferring to talk with activists.

"We will give credence to those who cry betrayal, and I am afraid we will make it more likely that the ultimate beneficiary of the Chequers deal will be the far right in the form of UKIP".

'They want to support a party that is decent, moderate and patriotic.

Ms. May has been under growing pressure from party members to scrap her strategy, which calls for the United Kingdom to essentially remain within part of the European Union's single market for trade in goods when the country leaves the EU in March.

He added: "My fellow Conservatives, this is not democracy. We have that from Theresa May, I think there are others who would struggle to provide that type of leadership", Gauke said.

Ian Livermore, 65, from south Gloucestershire said the speech was "superb" and showed why Johnson should be leader.

"We can have a transformational leader".

A United Kingdom cabinet minister has accused Boris Johnson of being "focused on his own self-interest and not on the interests of our country".

The Prime Minister will also make a direct appeal to mainstream Labour voters disillusioned by Jeremy Corbyn's left-wing agenda to switch to the Tories.

Mr Mundell added: "I don't think this is a time to be talking about leadership challenges, it is a time to be supporting our prime minister as she takes forward this incredibly hard task of getting a deal with the EU".

Launching an extraordinary attack on senior Conservatives, he continued: "When you see these insane notions of some Tory politicians of the last days: Boris Johnson, his latest invention, you have seen that?"

"It was a great speech, he was optimistic, he talked about Conservative values, and he talked about the opportunities if we do Brexit properly", Richard Tice, co-chairman of campaign group Leave means Leave, said after Johnson's speech.

Ross Thomson, however, is a member of the hard-Brexit backing European Research Group, and is a loyal follower of Mr Johnson, being pictured yesterday physically shielding the former London Mayor from journalists.
