The former Attorney General staunchly denied the claims which he said have resulted in him receiving a death threat. Mr Grieve added Boris Johnson and his team do not have the power to launch an investigation into suspected collusion with the EU. He went on to say it’s worrying that the Government have been “reduced to a propaganda machine”.

Speaking to BBC News, Mr Grieve said: “May I say, that’s the most astonishing statement I’ve ever read. Firstly, I didn’t collude with the EU.

“Secondly No 10 has no power to launch any such investigation any kind anyway. What on Earth is going on?

“How can an official in No 10 Downing Street, I don’t know who it is, is a paid civil servant make such an announcement to a newspaper which led to my getting a death threat.

“It’s based on complete fallacy and in any case it’s suggesting No 10 has a rather totalitarian power that it doesn’t have at all.
