Tim Martin has claimed that former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is the only candidate who can deliver for the country. The founder and chairman of Wetherspoons claimed the UK needed someone with a cross-party consensus to ensure Brexit gets over the line. Speaking to Express, Mr Martin branded the former Foreign Secretary as a “winner” and the Prime Minister as a “loser”.

He said: “There’s only one candidate I can see. You need someone with cross-party appeal in this sort of situation.

“The guy who stands out, for all his faults, is . He was twice elected Mayor of London, which is a Labour voting city.

“He has successfully run a magazine for eight years, which is a tough gig in the internet age. And he was instrumental in galvanising the Leave vote.

“The guy is a winner, and I am sorry to say about Mrs May, she is a loser. I think he would be the best candidate by far.”

Asked to give advice to , Mr Martin said: “I would say in the name of God, go. You can’t do this job, Mrs May.

“You may well be a nice person, but you’re not cut out for a tough negotiation like this.

“Above all, you are a Remainer, so you haven’t got the psychological make-up for a good deal.

“Even more than that, you have to understand and you haven’t understood that if the UK leaves without a deal, we will do better than we are today.

“That is your essential flaw. You have swallowed the myth that leaving without a deal is a disaster, and that, it’s not.”

Mr Martin branded the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated by the Prime Minister as “extremely poor”.

The Wetherspoons boss has repeatedly called for the UK to walk away from the European Union without an agreement.

Prime Minister Mrs May delayed the Brexit vote on her Withdrawal Agreement over concerns it would not get through the House of Commons.

Tory MPs in her own party demanded changes to the controversial Northern Ireland backstop element of the agreement which threatens to keep Britain in the EU’s customs union indefinitely.

After travelling to Brussels, Mrs May did not manage to secure significant changes to the backstop issue.

MPs will start debating the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement in January before the Commons vote takes place.
