Theresa May laments failure to pass Brexit deal on her way out

Conservative party leadership contender Jeremy Hunt speaks during a Tory leadership hustings at the All Nations Centre in Cardiff Wales Saturday

It had been, she said, "incredibly frustrating" that MPs on both side of the Lumber away-Reside divide had "obtained so model of entrenched that they correct had been no longer prepared to make that compromise that might well enable us to glean the bulk to glean this through".

In his BBC interview, Hunt reaffirmed his commitment to leave the European Union without a deal if he was unable to negotiate a new agreement with Brussels on the terms of the UK's withdrawal. And there's another reason why we have to be careful about this 31st of October date.

However he came under pressure for his comments over Britain's ambassador to the US Sir Kim Darroch in the row over the leak of his diplomatic dispatches.

May did not reveal whether she backs Jeremy Hunt or Boris Johnson as her replacement, saying only that "they understand the responsibility that this job brings".

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. What people say to me is - on the one hand that I stuck too firmly to my red lines, and on the other hand people say I gave up too much, I compromised too much.

Furious Tory MPs accused the former foreign secretary, who is favourite to succeed Theresa May, of throwing Mr Darroch "under a bus", leaving him no option but to resign.

Mr Johnson said he telephoned Sir Kim who told him he had not actually watched the debate although his comments had been passed on to him by someone else.

But in contrast, his opponent Mr Johnson said it was "absolutely insane" to say that Britain is prepared to delay Brexit again.


"I don't think it will be necessary to do anything like proroguing Parliament", he insisted, but refused to rule it out. That came as British police opened an investigation into the leak.

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

However Mrs Could well conceded she had made errors within the center of the campaign, together without a longer showing in a TV debate with other glean together leaders, with the then Dwelling Secretary, Amber Rudd, participating as a replace.

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

She said: "I think it'll be a mixture of pride at having done the job". But she was sorry about having to leave when "there was more that I wanted to do".

"I think we have achieved a lot over the last three years but whenever you come to the end of a premiership I think everybody will always feel that there is more that they wanted to do".

Johnson is seen as the best choice for prime minister by 47% of Tory supporters, against 25% for Hunt, and as most likely to beat Jeremy Corbyn at the next election by 61% compared with 19% who choose Hunt.

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".
