Tory leadership race: Hunt overtakes Johnson as the public’s preferred Prime Minister
Boris Johnson has said there is a “million to one” chance that Britain will leave the European Union without a deal – just one day after ramping up the rhetoric on a no-deal Brexit.
The Tory leadership frontrunner insisted it was crucial to prepare for a no-deal scenario in order to secure a deal with Brussels, but said he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.
If Boris Johnson becomes Prime Minister, the UK will leave the EU on 31st October, deal or no deal; the former Foreign Secretary says, adding he has ‘asked @Jeremy_Hunt whether he will also commit to this date, no matter what. We must keep our promises to the British people and deliver Brexit – no ifs, no buts, and no second referendum.’//Crimson Tazvinzwa/
