Boris Johnson warns against Brexit betrayal against deep state & # 39;
Former Secretary of State Boris Johnson said that every move by Parliament to try to frustrate the Brexit by voters is seen as a "betrayal" by the "deep state".
The Arch-Brexiteer said that attempts to thwart EU withdrawal on March 29 would amount to "playing with fire".
Mr. Johnson also indicated that he regretted withdrawing from the Tory Leadership Race in the wake of the 2016 EU referendum.
The former minister of the cabinet had been destroyed by some members of parliament about "conspiracies" to try to give Parliament more control over the Brexit agenda.
Johnson told LBC: "I notice that this is all about complicated jiggery-pokery for Parliament to frustrate the deal.
"I do not think that's possible, I think we're really playing with fire."

Mr Johnson said that voters would feel betrayed if Parliament tried to thwart the EU's withdrawal.
He said, "I think people feel betrayed.
"And I think they will feel that there has been a big conspiracy by the deep state of the UK, the people who really control the country."
Asked what would happen if the Commons voted for Prime Minister Theresa May's withdrawal agreement, Mr. Johnson said, "I think the deal is going to collapse.
"I think some colleagues may be afraid of this idea that there can be no Brexit as a result of casting votes, which I think is nonsense.
"Great Britain will leave in March, absolutely, and that is the bottom line."
Asked if he had "bottled" his chance to be a Tory leader and premier in 2016, Mr. Johnson indicated that he had the second thought of retiring from the contest to succeed David Cameron.
Johnson said, "In retrospect, if I had my time again, I might have done things differently."
