A Brexiteer has claimed that Boris Johnson will be "toast" if he fails the "five tests" of a Brexit deal.
Former Brexit Party MEP Jake Pugh told the Express the prime minister's agreement will be challenged in the following areas:
“1. To what extent is the freedom to diverge allowed by LPF (level playing field).
“2. Is Northern Ireland still carved off from Great Britain?
“3. Terms of fish access and length of duration.
“4. What has been agreed on services.
You may also want to watch:
“5. Terms of any cross retaliation.”
And he warned that if the deal is rushed through without scrutiny, he is likely to feel to wrath of Tory Brexiteers in the House of Commons.

“But beware, if Boris has caved, Brexiteers will spot it and he will be toast.”
