Shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer said: "Businesses across the country need certainty and stability but the glacial pace of Brexit negotiations is providing anything but".

Corbyn, meanwhile, said Johnson's comments on the "fantasy" £350m figure was another attempt to "mislead the British public". The Foreign secretary has desmarado with its own manifesto of 4,000 words in pages of influential conservative daily The Daily Telegraph, become for a day in something like The Boris Telegraph.

The Hoem Secretary has been critical of Johnson in the past sayign during the European Union referendum campaign he was "not the man you want driving you home".

"I don't want him managing the Brexit process, what we have got is Theresa May managing the process, driving the vehicle".

BusinessEurope, an umbrella group representing business federations across Europe, said companies needed certainty and time to prepare for future arrangements.

Asked whether she shared the concerns of those - including Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson - who have criticised the timing of the intervention. she said they had a point.

"Boris has had his say and he shows that energy and enthusiasm that he's famous for", Rudd told the BBC. "I don't want him managing the Brexit process, what we've got is Theresa May managing that process, she's driving the auto and I'm going to make sure we help her do that".

And the Foreign Secretary himself said in a tweet on Saturday that he was "looking forward to PM's Florence speech" and was "all behind Theresa for a glorious Brexit".

As a key player with Vote Leave, the smaller of the two major Leave campaigns during the Brexit referendum, Johnson made a pledge to subtract £100m a week from Britain's £350m gross contribution to the European Union budget and give it to the National Health Service.

May's deputy, Damian Green, said also weighed in on Sunday, saying that Johnson had written a "very exuberant" article but it is "absolutely clear to everyone that the driver of the vehicle in this instance is the prime minister".

"It would be very nice if we could get a clear message on where the British are" on their financial obligations with the EU, Danish Finance Minister Anders Samuelsen said in an interview in Copenhagen on Friday.

As part of a new treaty, Britain wants the creation of mechanisms to maintain current operational capabilities between the United Kingdom and the EU.

"I want the French man in London to be safe and the English man in Berlin". They think Brexit isn't going to happen.
