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

Hunt 'expects' Brexit by Christmas

SNP MSP George Adam said: "Ruth Davidson's authority is being shredded by the day as more and more of her colleagues ignore her and lend their backing to Boris Johnson, and to a no-deal Brexit that would be a disaster for Scotland".

The Foreign Secretary maintained prime ministers should "only make promises they know they can deliver". The victor is announced on July 23.

Speaking to Andrew Pierce on LBC, Ms Miller said: "Should Boris Johnson become Prime Minister and pursue a prorogation process, we are ready to go to court because we believe, based on the judgement in my original case, a Prime Minister can not shut down or close the doors of Parliament and bypass representative to push through a decision without scrutiny, basically".

"We think that it's beyond the prime minister's powers because parliamentary sovereignty is actually the jewel in the constitutional crown". "We now have to get behind a new government".

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

Mr Johnson has insisted that Brexit must happen by October 31 "come what may", saying the impact of No Deal could be "vanishingly inexpensive" if the United Kingdom prepares properly.

While wishing her successor well, she said she would continue to argue that leaving the European Union "with a good deal" was vital.

Mr Johnson denied that his failure to back British ambassador to the US Kim Darroch prompted the envoy to resign over leaked cables detailing his views of President Donald Trump.

"It is because Parliament may try and take a no deal Brexit off the table altogether and so I think - my commitment is that I think I'm the best person to get a deal and if we get a deal it will be on or around the 31st of October but I can't control what Parliament does and that's why I'm being honest with people about the difficulties".

"I want the elected representatives of the people to take their responsibilities and work together to get this thing over the line", Johnson said in a televised BBC interview late Friday.

But Mrs May conceded she had made mistakes during the campaign, including not appearing in a TV debate with other party leaders, with the then Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, taking part instead.

"But the reality is that we face a hung parliament with people - not just in the Labour Party but in our own party - absolutely determined to stop us leaving without a deal".

In an interview with the BBC ahead of her departure from Downing Street on 24 July, Mrs May was asked how she thought she would feel when she walks out of the door of Number 10 as prime minister for the last time.

"I don't think it will be necessary to do anything like proroguing Parliament", he insisted, but refused to rule it out.
