Boris Johnson warned 'no one is unsackable'

Boris Johnson has been warned "no one is unsackable" after his recent clashes with the prime minister.

The Foreign Secretary is due to give a speech at the Tory conference on Tuesday, while Theresa May will speak on Wednesday.

After his recent efforts to harden the prime minister's stance on Brexit, former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith said: "Nobody in government is unsackable.

"From the top to the way down. The answer is the prime minister has the job of deciding who should be in and who should be out."

May launches staunch defence of free market economy

  • Video report by ITV News Political Correspondent Emily Morgan

Theresa May has warned that the failings of the free market economy must be addressed if it is to continue to enjoy public support.

The Prime Minister said that abandoning the market and adopting "ideologically extreme" polices instead would simply hurt the poorest and most vulnerable in society.

Her comments, in a speech to mark 20 years of operational independence at the Bank of England, came the day after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn warned that capitalism was facing a "crisis of legitimacy".

Mrs May insisted that a free market economy, operating under the right rules and regulations, remained the "greatest agent of collective human progress ever created".
