Tory leadership: Boris Johnson challenges Jeremy Hunt to deliver Brexit by Halloween

Lord Heywood Thanksgiving Service

Challenged on the possibility of Britain's Parliament - which is presently dominated by Remain-supporting members - opposing Johnson's plan, Raab said it remained the case that leaving on October 31st remained the legal default and a vote by Parliament would have "zero legal effect". But I'll also preserve the relationship.

Johnson has won the support of the ERG by taking a firm stance on Brexit; but has also convinced moderate Tories, including the health secretary, Matt Hancock, that he will govern from the political centre ground once Britain has left the EU.

He and Boris Johnson are competing to bewitch over from Theresa Can also honest, with the victor of the competition attributable to enter Quantity 10 on 24 July.

Meanwhile, Mr Hunt's campaign received a boost as Rory Stewart - another former leadership candidate - confirmed he was backing him to be the next prime minister.

Mr Johnson broke cover in a series of broadcast interviews on Monday night and Tuesday, when he refused to discuss his private life but gave further details on his Brexit strategy.

But, he said: "The judgement is - who is the person we trust as prime minister to go to Brussels and bring back that deal?"

Nonetheless Mr Hunt called the date a "fraudulent slit-off date" that could well "time out us into a frequent election and hand the keys to Jeremy Corbyn and we can procedure no longer like any Brexit at all".

He said Britain would threaten "no deal" and withhold its £39 billion ($50 billion) share of European Union liabilities until this is done.

"We are getting ready to come out on October 31".


He insisted getting rid of the backstop - the insurance policy created to maintain an open border on the island of Ireland - was a precondition to a renegotiated agreement even though the European Union has ruled this out on many occasions.

In an oddly contradictory way, the United Kingdom already has a standstill agreement in between a deal and the status quo - the implementation period, which has drawn harsh criticism from numerous supporters of an "Article 24" exit, despite the fact that they share many similar aims.

He suggested Mr Hunt's willingness to seek an extension could open the door to a second referendum. "But I'm not going to do that if there's a prospect of a better deal, and if I did it it would be with a heavy heart because businesses up and down the country would face a lot of destruction".

"I mediate we ought to be a rustic where people establish for his or her social care prices, particularly these outdated couple of months, presumably years, of their lifestyles when issues can also be very dejected, very painful, acceptable within the identical map they establish for his or her pension".

The Tory leadership contender became furthermore quizzed on his glimpse that the finest slit-off date for an abortion ought to be reduced from 24 weeks to 12. Pressed on whether he would rule it out, he said: "I think that's a pretty clear no".

"I have been sitting around that cabinet table thinking how I want to transform our country", he said. I think if I say that it's really going to put people off.

"Nonetheless notion, I'd love to procedure that job, I mediate I'm in a position to produce a difference".

Mr Johnson said the two men should agree that the revised Brexit deadline must be met "no matter what" in order to keep promises to the British people.
