Mr Johnson today warned any attempt to block his Internal Market Bill in the House of Commons would enable to EU to "carve up" the United Kingdom in a clear indication of the seriousness with which he views the situation. And Daniel Kawczynski, MP for Shrewsbury and Atcham, likewise stressed the stakes could not be higher, employing his colourful metaphor as he compared the situation to Fight Club.

"And this is just the beginning - deals with Australia will follow, Canada and America.

"So that will clearly create the kind of circumstances where other European countries contemplate whether it is worth paying the middle man - is he actually adding any value?

Mr Kawzcynski concluded: "What is so incomprehensible to us Brexiteers is the lack of confidence these Remainers have is the United Kingdom.

"We have been held up hold back for the whole of my lifetime in this strange parallel universe. No more."
