MP's fury as Cabinet pair warn against no-deal Brexit

Hunt 'expects' Brexit by Christmas

Hunt 'expects' Brexit by Christmas

On other policies, Jeremy Hunt failed to distinguish himself as foreign secretary, and recently come down against the U.S. in relation to the ambassadorial controversy, suggesting that a USA free trade deal would be more problematic under him, said Collins.

Any future attempt by a Boris Johnson-led Government to "bypass" Parliament to pursue a no-deal Brexit "would be beyond a prime minister's powers", campaigner Gina Miller has said.

He expressed his confidence in getting a deal by the end of September, telling the BBC: "I believe we can and I, as I say, I think that people like Angela Merkel want to solve this problem".

He said parliament would be "willing to sit at weekends, will be willing to sit late, to do this" but that it "may take a few extra days and I would be willing to allow those days".

Tory voters now back Boris Johnson over Jeremy Hunt to be the next Conservative party leader and prime minister by a margin of nearly two to one, according to a new Opinium/Observer poll.

He was then challenged on whether the United Kingdom would still be a member of the European Union going into 2020, replying: "I don't believe so".

He told the BBC: "I think we've got to come out on October 31 and I think it is very odd that those who are saying they would delay even further can't set another date".

Johnson and Hunt were the most popular candidates to replace Theresa May after a series of votes by Conservative MPs. "A decision was taken - just get on with it - and they are not in that same polarised way that Parliament has been about this issue".

And she called for a more discipline in government after years of leaks and political disagreements inside her cabinet: "Good government depends on collective responsibility".

Mrs May conceded she could have talked to more colleagues to get her withdrawal deal through the House of Commons.

"I regret running a campaign that wasn't really me", she said.

'I think that's exactly how it should have been previously as well, after 2016.

Former prime minister John Major also said last week he would be prepared to turn to the judiciary if needed to avoid a constitutional crisis.

Mrs May said she was proud of "championing some causes that otherwise will be unfashionable", such as the fight against modern slavery and domestic violence and mental health support.

She said she hoped her critics and supporters alike would feel that "in everything I've done, I've always done what I believed to be in the national interest".

The survey confirms Johnson as the hot favourite to succeed Theresa May when the result of the ballot now taking place among 160,000 Tory party members is announced on July 22.

Asked whether he would be prepared to delay by days, weeks or months, Hunt replied: "Well, it's not going to be months".
