An advisory board will feature former Tory Cabinet ministers Rory Stewart and David Gauke, who were kicked out of the party by Boris Johnson over Brexit.

Ex-Labour MPs Angela Smith and Luciana Berger, former Times columnist Phil Collins and broadcaster Trevor Phillips are also said to be on the board.

There is also a bid to involve David Miliband, the former foreign secretary, to talk about Britain’s place in the world, according to the website.

The group is said to have discussed a proposal to approach Tesla founder Elon Musk for funding.

However, splits have already developed within the project. “Some of it is just monstrously ego-driven,” one of those close to the discussions told Politico.
