Johnson becomes latest Tory contender to promise tax cut for better-off

Johnson becomes latest Tory contender to promise tax cut for better-off”

Nominations close Monday June 10, 2019 and former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson is now the bookies' favorite to replace May.

Eleven Conservative MPs are vying to succeed Ms.

Asked her thoughts on her party colleagues plotting against the next Tory prime minister and a real Brexit, Ms McVey told the newspaper of record: "Shame on any Conservative MP who'd be prepared to bring down a Conservative government and usher in what we know would be catastrophic for our economy".

She remains the premier until her replacement is chosen, likely in late July, and they will automatically enter Downing Street.

The bombastic former London mayor has been keeping a low public profile but is campaigning hard behind the scenes, and his rivals tacitly acknowledged he is the one to beat.

United Kingdom foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt has also made a serious pitch for leadership, relying on what he believes are his strong credentials as a negotiator. "Unless we deliver a Brexit worth having in the opinion of Brexit Party voters then we will suffer a Jeremy Corbyn government with all the horrors that would mean for our prosperity and our wellbeing".

The new party leader will also become Britain's prime minister.

"We will have a different attitude in the negotiating team and a different negotiating team", Mr Johnson said, adding that he would give personal orders to negotiators from his ministerial team rather than politically impartial public servants.

Gove has taken a softer line on Britain's European Union departure than Johnson, suggesting he might delay Brexit once again to try to avoid a damaging "no deal" exit.

However, he noted many Tory MPs had yet to declare who they were backing.

Mr. Johnson has won praise from US President Donald Trump for threatening to walk away with no deal at all.

Mrs May's successor will inherit Britain's deepest political crisis in decades over how, when and whether it should leave the EU.

"Not honouring payment obligations is a breach of worldwide commitment equivalent to a default on its sovereign debt, with the consequences that we know", a source close to French President Emmanuel Macron told AFP.

Meanwhile Hunt claimed at that weekend that he had received encouraging signals for renegotiating the Brexit deal from German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Any prime minister who tries to leave without an agreement would find themselves forced to call a national vote, he said as he made a veiled attack on Johnson's suitability for the top job.

The 313 Conservative lawmakers vote in the first elimination round. The final two candidates are put to a postal vote of the full party membership across the country - about 160,000 people.

Previous contests have thrown up some surprising results.

The pair have history - Gove dramatically withdrew his backing for Johnson during the 2016 leadership campaign, only to falter himself, clearing the way for May.
