Johnson insists ‘common sense’ breaking out over getting Brexit done

Boris Johnson

The amendment, which could make it harder for the next Prime Minister to suspend Parliament and force through a no-deal Brexit, was passed by a single vote (294-293).

Sir Alan said "that's not leadership" adding that it was "not what a future Prime Minister should be doing".

Bluntly the MP replied "that's it".

Mr Johnson dismissed suggestions it was "fanciful" that the October 31 deadline could be met and insisted the country could be prepared to leave on that date.

Mr Trump also said he didn't know Sir Kim but had been told he is "a pompous fool", before going on to claim that the United States now has "the best economy and military anywhere in the world, by far". One senior Number 10 figure said they were "hugely disappointed" in Mr Hancock's conduct.

Sir Alan also failed to rule out Prime Minister Theresa May appointing a new USA ambassador before she leaves office on 23 July.

Mr Grieve has been a long-term campaigner for a second Brexit referendum and said a no-deal Brexit would be "uniquely damaging" for Britain.

According to overnight figures from the broadcaster, Britain's Next Prime Minister: The ITV Debate - which saw Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt go head to head - drew an average of 4.3 million viewers.

In a swipe at his rival Boris Johnson, Mr Hunt said he would deliver Brexit "more quickly than the alternative".

According to the Daily Telegraph, sources say Sir Kim was "very hurt" and felt the need to resign after Mr Johnson refused to back him in the global row during a live debate on ITV.

The boost for Johnson comes just days after YouGov poll of Conservative members which also gave Johnson an enormous lead over Hunt, the current foreign secretary.

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.

Mrs May's de-facto deputy, David Lidington, has claimed a no deal Brexit will increase pressure on the union.

In the House of Commons Thursday Labour's Valerie Vaz, the shadow leader of the Commons told MPs that her party would support Major's challenge if he took it to court for a judicial review.

May said: "If a male Prime Minister's voice had broken up, it would have been said "what great patriotism, they really love their country".
