Amber Rudd U-turns on opposition to no-deal Brexit

Theresa May officially resigns as Prime Minister on 24 July when she goes to Buckingham Palace to speak to the Queen.

"It had been incredibly frustrating that MPs on either side of the Leave-Remain divide had got so sort of entrenched that they just were not willing to make that compromise that would enable us to get the majority to get this through", May said in a BBC interview in 10 Downing Street on Friday.

"I'm not going to take anything off the table, any more than I'm going to take no-deal off the table", Johnson said.

A former British prime minister threatened Wednesday to take Conservative Party leadership candidate Boris Johnson to court if he tries to suspend Parliament to deliver a United Kingdom departure from the European Union without a deal. "I for one would be prepared to go and seek judicial review". Both of these can not be true.

The victor, and new Prime Minister, is expected to be announced on July 23.

If I hadn't have crashed I could have followed, and it's a totally different story today. "Still a lot of racing to go though". Sunday's hilly ninth stage is a potentially treacherous ride from St Etienne to Brioude over 170.5km.


Johnson and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt are in a runoff for that post, which will also make the victor Britain's next prime minister. "I cannot imagine how anyone could conceivably think that is right". I think the public have got a very simple view.

May, who will return to Parliament as a lawmaker, also took issue with those who chided her for becoming emotional as she announced her departure from the post.

Johnson, who has said leaving the European Union by the scheduled date of October 31 is a "do or die" matter, refused to rule out bypassing Parliament to prevent lawmakers from blocking a no-deal departure.

The two contenders, Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson are competing for votes from party members, with the victor replacing Prime Minister Theresa May as party leader and Prime Minister of Britain's ruling Conservative Party.

And she called for a more discipline in government after years of leaks and political disagreements inside her Cabinet: "Good government depends on collective responsibility".
