Boris eyes up No 10 with blueprint for better Brexit

By Staff Reporter

Boris Johnson last night fired the first shots in what is thought to be a bid to position himself as the next Conservative Party leader.

The Foreign Secretary published a 10-point plan for a successful Brexit.

In his blueprint, published in today's Daily Telegraph newspaper. Mr Johnson says Britain will spend £350million a week on the NHS, and will not pay to access the EU single market.

The former London Mayor also calls for tax reform, including the abolition of the 'tampon tax', and the renewal of what he calls 'old friendships' with Commonwealth countries.

Controversially, Mr Johnson says that foreigners could be prevented from buying property in the UK.

"All those who write off this country, who think we don't have it in us, who think that we lack the nerve and confidence to tackle the task ahead, they have been proved wrong before, and believe me they will be proved wrong again," Mr Johnson said.
