Hunt promises new Brexit deal

Jeremy Hunt, one of the candidates aiming to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May, said he would leave the European Union without a deal (Withdrawal Agreement) but with a heavy heart and that he hoped the bloc would engage with a new British leader.

Our failure to deliver Brexit has put our country and our party in grave peril. The leadership I offer is based on one simple truth: without Brexit there will be no Conservative government and maybe no Conservative Party,” Hunt said.

If we want a deal we are going to have to engage seriously with Brussels. From my conversations with European leaders, it is clear to me there is a deal to be done, they want us to come up with proposals.Hunt added.

Further Brexit delay?

The majority of the European Union governments will approve another Brexit delay regardless of who becomes the next British prime minister, ‘The Times’  newspaper reported on June 6 citing an unnamed senior European source.

As many as 25 European governments are prepared to give the Britons another extension, despite repeated statements from most British prime minister candidates that the UK will leave the EU on October 31 with or without a deal, the newspaper added.

In the end no one wants to be seen as the one who pulls the plug,” the source told ‘The Times’.

Brexit had been due to take place on March 29, but May government was unable to get her departure deal (WA) approved by the House of Commons, which rejected the so-called Withdrawal Agreement (WA) three times.
