Mr Watt described the incendiary Downing Street which had been sent a source, who is “right at the heart of the Government’s EU negotiating strategy”. The source sent the texts direct to James Forsyth political editor at The Spectator. Mr Watt said: “There is a feeling in Downing Street that Boris Johnson is heading for a no deal with the EU.

“There has been a stark assessment of where things lie by a source who is absolutely at the heart of Boris Johnson’s negotiations plan with the EU.

“The source sent a series of text messages to James Forsyth who is the political editor of the Spectator.”

The first text from the No 10 Source to the Spectator threatens countries who support delaying Brexit.

It reads: “We will make clear privately and publicly that countries which oppose delay will go the front of the queue for future co-operation.

“Supporting delay will be seen by this government as hostile interference in domestic politics.

The second text is directed towards the EU.

It reads: “Any delay will in effect be negotiated between you, Parliament and the courts.

“Everything to do with ‘duty of sincere cooperation’ will be in the toilet.

“We will focus on winning the election on a manifesto of immediately revoking the entire EU legal order without further talks, and then we will leave.”

By “duty of sincere cooperation” the text means negotiating in good faith with the EU.
