"There is a clear way that the now effectively defunct Withdrawal Agreement can be disaggregated - the good bits of it can be taken out", he said.

Speaking to The Parliament Magazine on Wednesday, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said that he believes the chances of Brexit being delivered on October 31st under the Conservatives were "pretty low" and that the government would request a further extension that could delay the UK's exit from the bloc to as far as 2020.

"I think it's still very open and no candidate can take things for granted - and shouldn't".

It came after he was criticised for a lack of media appearances, with his rival, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, accusing him of hiding.

"It needs to happen by October 31, and we need to get on and do it", he told BBC radio. "Engaging in the TV debates".

Earlier, Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced that he had withdrawn from the Tory leadership race as candidates seek a way to defeat front-runner Mr Johnson.

However, EU officials are working on the assumption that Mr Johnson will not insist on forcing through No Deal because this would trigger a no confidence vote by MPs and end his premiership.

Members of the Tory party, how could you even contemplate voting for such a man to lead our country? He's got 43 votes.

Johnson said London could finally get what it wanted once it made abundantly clear to Brussels that it could walk away without a deal.

Reports in the United Kingdom suggest Mr Hancock could now back home secretary Sajid Javid's campaign - but the minister insists he has yet to make up his mind. In the first round of the ballot, Johnson won the support of 114 Tory members of Parliament out of the 313 who voted. That then set the Brexiteers against her, because they said now we're locked into a permanent Customs Union.

The former Conservative leadership contender has for years been against Mr Johnson leading the party, but said he now feels a "sort of enthusiasm that he is going to win by a landslide".

"There are many terrible people who have been popular", Mohammed Amin, who has been a member of the Tories for 36 years, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme, adding that while popularity is not the test, it is whether "this person is sufficiently moral to be prime minister".

Asked about Mr Johnson's popularity with grassroots members of the party, Mr Amin said: "There are many awful people who have been popular".

"He has been making his arguments as to why he is the best person to be party leader and why he is the best person to be Prime Minister".

Mr Donaldson yesterday told RTÉ a timescale for the backstop is needed to put MPs' concerns at ease.

Mr Stewart, who has criticised Mr Johnson for making promises on Brexit he can not keep, voiced optimism about his campaign: "This is incredible - we're getting some real momentum here ... it's increasingly clear it's me against Boris".
