Brexit: Boris Johnson says he is 'not aiming for no deal'

Brexit: Boris Johnson says he is 'not aiming for no deal'”

Because the Conservatives are the UK's governing party, the victor of the race automatically becomes prime minister - and steps into a paralyzing Brexit impasse which Theresa May has tried and failed to break.

"In a leadership contest of fairytale tax cuts and unworkable pledges, this promise to get a new deal or leave without a deal on October 31 is the most ludicrous of them all", worldwide development minister Stewart said in a statement.

Stewart has said the only way to deliver Brexit is to resolve the impasse in parliament, which has rejected May's deal three times, rather than go back to the European Union to seek changes.

The shadow Brexit secretary, Keir Starmer, has urged MPs to back cross-party efforts to give parliament time to block no deal, calling it a "safety valve" so MPs can begin legislation to stop a new prime minister suspending parliament.

"Only if it passes do we have any chance of stopping a No Deal Brexit on 31 October".

"If we're trying to connect with the next generation and move forward as a country then I think it's time for the next generation with a bold new agenda", the Home Secretary said. "I think you have to open yourself up to questioning and be prepared to level with people".

Labour said it would continue to fight to prevent a no-deal Brexit after the latest cross-party attempt by MPs to take control of Commons business was narrowly voted down.

"Around the country there is a feeling of disillusion and even despair at our ability to get things done".

He warned that failure to deliver on the referendum result would create an "existential threat" for both Labour and the Conservatives.

Questioned on his trustworthiness, using cocaine and breaking laws, Johnson's performance was marked by less-than-usual wit, jokes and the use of rarely used words - it was "spectacularly dull", as some called it - but he came out flying, answering potentially embarrassing questions.

Referring to his record as mayor of London, he said: "I do what I promise to do as a politician".

Mr Johnson is regarded as the frontrunner in the contest, with many more endorsements from Tory MPs than any other candidate.

"But this is just the start, not the end of our efforts to block no deal", he said.

Labour introduced the motion today at 1pm, through an opposition day debate.

The source said MPs could use a debate on June 25 to "specify a future date to give consideration to legislation to help prevent no-deal on October 31".

"Let me be clear: I am not aiming for a no-deal outcome".

Johnson said earlier launching his leadership manifesto that he wanted to agree a withdrawal deal with Brussels, but wanted to keep the option of a no-deal Brexit.
