Boris Johnson, one of the most prominent Brexit campaigners in Britain, on Tuesday issued yet another threat to exit the European Union if Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan for a new free trade pact is not improved.

“If we have to walk away from the negotiating table, we will,” the former foreign secretary told the House of Commons, in a stunning blow to Mrs. May’s handling of Brexit negotiations.

Mrs. May’s failure to convince her Cabinet to endorse a draft agreement on the terms of Britain’s departure from the EU earlier this month has opened up divisions at the highest levels. Britain’s Parliament must vote on whether to approve the accord, but it is considered almost certain to fall short of a two-thirds majority needed for passage.

On Monday, Ms. May’s chief of staff, Gavin Barwell, resigned after Ms. May was stripped of the power to negotiate the deal, sparking fresh speculation that she might face a challenge to her leadership from within her own party.
