Conservative leadership: Hunt 'expects' Brexit by Christmas

Former UK PM Major vows legal action to block suspension of parliament Thousands of jobs at risk in event of no-deal: Minister

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she is still disappointed at her failure to finalize a Brexit deal as she prepares to step down. And there's another reason why we have to be careful about this 31st of October date.

The British Foreign Office recently announced that its ambassador to the US, Kim Darroch, had resigned following the scandal over a leak of the embassy's cables. "I mediate the public have confidence obtained a somewhat easy scrutinize".

Jeremy Hunt has said he can not promise Brexit by Christmas and Boris Johnson has vowed to meet the Halloween deadline "come what may", as the pair were probed by Andrew Neill.

Leadership contender Jeremy Hunt refused to guarantee the United Kingdom will leave the European Union before Christmas, a stance likely to further undermine his diminishing chances of becoming prime minister.

"I'm not going to give you those commitments", Mr Hunt said in the BBC interview.

But the former foreign secretary insisted his comments in the debate had been "misrepresented" and denied withholding his backing.

But in tonight's BBC interview, Mr Johnson said when he spoke to Mr Darroch by telephone the ambassador told him he had not seen the debate himself although somebody had told him about Mr Johnson's comments.

But in contrast, his opponent Mr Johnson said it was "absolutely insane" to say that Britain is prepared to delay Brexit again. "I actually think there's quite a difference between Parliament and the public".

It would keep open the post-Brexit border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and European Union member the Republic of Ireland whatever the outcome of negotiations over the future relationship between London and Brussels.

Meanwhile outgoing leader May admitted in her own interview Friday that she had underestimated the "entrenched positions" in Parliament over Brexit.

She said if the future relationship had been negotiated alongside there would not have been the same issue with the backstop.

She said she hoped her critics and supporters alike would indubitably feel that "in the whole lot I've accomplished, I've continually accomplished what I believed to be within the national curiosity".

Johnson is the overwhelming favorite in the contest to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May as 180,000 Conservative Party members cast their votes to choose a new leader this month. But she was sorry about having to leave when "there was more that I wanted to do".

"There were moments when I sat here and thought I wish we'd got Brexit over the line - you know I wish we'd managed to achieve that".

"I remorse working a campaign that wasn't indubitably me", she said. "But everybody in Parliament had a responsibility in how they voted on this issue".

"It's because prime ministers should only make promises they know they can deliver".

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".
