"But if a female prime minister does it, it is 'Why is she crying?'" she said.

"Boris is, I believe the necessary choice for our Prime Minister at this crucial time and moment in history", she said.

The cabinet minister said she was backing Jeremy Hunt in the leadership race, who has previously said a no-deal Brexit would be a "last resort".

The BBC will still be showing two one-on-one interviews with the candidates, hosted by Andrew Neil, on BBC One this Friday at 19:00 BST.

Mr Clark implored colleagues to "strain every sinew to avoid that", with leadership rivals Mr Johnson and Jeremy Hunt both pledging to leave the European Union without a deal if need be.

Labour is poised to prevent any attempt at a no-deal Brexit, as are senior Tories including Justice Secretary David Gauke.

May underscored she had done all she possibly could to try to get her Brexit deal approved and did nothing to hide her frustration with the fact that some of her most strident opponents on Brexit are those now backing Johnson. Major said he would be willing to initiate a process of judicial review of any decision to call for elections while the government reaches the October 31 deadline.

Morris reached agreement with the Spurs on Saturday for a 2-year, $20 million contract with a player option for the second year. The San Antonio Spurs may be losing Marcus Morris to the New York Knicks , but they have found a new use for the money instead.

Mr Johnson has taken the tougher line, even refusing to rule out suspending Parliament to force through a no-deal against the wishes of MPs.

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

"One could always look back and say, "If I'd sat down and talked to people more often", she said, in reference to any regrets.

British Chancellor Philip Hammond has issued a veiled threat to Boris Johnson, after insisting he would back taking the former foreign secretary to court if he tried to suspend Parliament to ram through a no-deal Brexit.

"I can't control what Parliament does".

But in a swipe at his rival, Mr Hunt also said he would deliver Brexit "more quickly than the alternative".
