Business secretary: 'no-deal Brexit will cost thousands of jobs'

Queen to be protected from Brexit constitutional crisis, vows former British PM John Major

"And, if we aren't able to prevent that course of action through parliament, then, certainly, there will be resort to the courts, and I strongly support the position that Sir John Major has taken".

"We will get a deal by October 31st", Johnson told the BBC during highly-anticipated separate interviews with the leadership rivals, referring to the latest delayed deadline for Britain's departure from the bloc.

Mr Johnson, in a separate interview with Neil, repeated his pledge to leave the European Union on October 31 "come what may".

But, when pressed during an interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil, he refused to say whether the United Kingdom would have left by Christmas, though claimed "it's not going to be months".

May resigned as leader of the ruling Conservatives in June after she conceded defeat in her two-year battle to persuade parliament to approve the deal she had agreed to with Brussels for Britain to leave the EU.

"I'm friendly with him, as you well know, but equally I do know many other members of the administration and we do share a hell of a lot in terms of our political philosophy - but, right at this moment in time, whilst a new trade deal with America is an important component of [Brexit], what I can't allow to happen [is] I can't allow Boris Johnson to do to the British people what Theresa May did", he explained.

"They (the EU) need to take. the Irish backstop and they need basically to remit it, to remove it, to delete it", he added.

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".

"Both [Tory leadership] candidates have said that no deal is part of the armory and the negotiations going forward".

Mad scramble for cash after armoured auto spills $260000 on Atlanta highway
According to CNN , police estimate that almost $1,75,000 was spilled out when the truck's side door sprung open. Meanwhile, videos circulating on social media show the frenzy caused by the spilled cash.

He said prime ministers should "only make promises they know they can deliver".

"They will want to continue to see those goods flowing", he added.

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

The veteran MEP noted that Theresa May still has a couple of weeks left before her premiership is expected to terminate, and that she could "as a parting gift, still appoint a new ambassador who might be perfectly very bad like Sir Kim Darroch", but that if the decision does fall to Mr Johnson, and Mr Johnson does make the offer, he might not be able to accept it.

"I should have done the TV debates".

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.

The Metropolitan Police said this evening it had opened a criminal investigation into alleged leaking of official communications Mr Darroch.

May called the 2017 snap election to ask voters to back her leadership and her Brexit plan, but she lost her majority in parliament, forcing her to rely on Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party to keep her in power.

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