Boris Johnson Thought Call From President Trump a Prank

Boris Johnson Thought Call From President Trump a Prank

Mr Johnson is one of 11 lawmakers vying to run the world's fifth-largest economy after Mrs May resigned as leader of the governing Conservatives on Friday (local time), having failed to unite parliament or the country behind her Brexit plan.

Former International Development Secretary Priti Patel tells Nigel Farage why she's backing Boris Johnson, despite him once voting for Theresa May's Brexit deal.

"This can only be achieved by delivering Brexit as promised on October 31 and delivering a One Nation Tory agenda".

Cabinet minister Mr Cairns said the best person equipped to drive a "bold, ambitious plan" was Mr Johnson.

Michael Gove, environment secretary, who has come in for much criticism over his confession over taking cocaine in the past, faced further ire from Javid, who as home secretary is responsible to deal with drug trafficking.

"The key is Ireland", he told Sky News. If that means going ahead with a second referendum as the only way through the impasse, then that's what he will do.

Queen marks official birthday with pomp and parade
A Ministry of Defence spokesman told LADbible: "Major Hall was dismounted on today's Queen's Birthday Parade". The Duchess of Sussex took a small break from her maternity leave to pop out for the annual event.

That followed a gathering in Portsmouth, southern England, the previous day in which Queen Elizabeth led commemorations attended by Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau among others. "What an unwise prime minister will do in this situation is something that precipitates a general election".

Main rivals foreign minister Jeremy Hunt, agriculture minister Michael Gove and interior minister Sajid Javid, also want to renegotiate or modify the deal, but none have threatened not to pay the exit bill May agreed with the European Union in 2018. The current deadline is October 31. "In getting a good deal, money is a great solvent and a great lubricant", Johnson told the Sunday Times.

If an election is held before the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, the centre-right vote would be split between the Conservatives and the Brexit Party and Labour would "come through the middle" to win, Hunt said.

"In terms of leaving on the 31st October, not just handing our cash over, he's spoken about conditionality around the money, making sure that if we don't get a free trade deal we're off and we no longer go to the European Union with a begging bowl".

Mr Javid insisted though that the high cost would be worth spending, because: "if we get a Brexit deal in the next few months there will be a mini-economic boom, it will immediately have an economic impact", he said.
