International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox MP said ''we will not be pressured'' into a second referendum, and a no deal may still occur.
Calling for a second referendum on Brexit, Mr Johnson said the government's insistence that this would not happen should be taken "with a pinch of salt".He added: "If Parliament wants a referendum the legislation can be passed quickly. If there's a will, a way can be found."But International Trade Secretary Liam Fox has warned the government would not be "bounced" into holding another poll and so "those who lost the previous one can try to apply continued membership of the European Union to the people of Britain in perpetuity".

Speaking to Sky News, Mr Johnson said: "This choice between a deeply flawed deal that leaves us in a sort of vassal state relationship to the EU or no deal at all and the chaos that would bring."There are alternatives and absolutely vital that we now explore those and we use the mechanism of a referendum to do exactly that."He added: "We are now at the point where MPs are going to have to take a view - Is this deal in the national interest or not?"It's clearly inferior than our current relationship within the EU."Prominent leave campaigners including my brother have said it is inferior as a deal to our current membership of the EU, so on what basis could we possibly agree to it.":: Five key points from Jo Johnson's resignation blog post
