Britain’s Conservative Party leadership contest f

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “co

Both men vying to be the next prime minster, Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, have said they would back a no

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea tha 上海千花网女神会所
t he would prorogue – or suspend – Parliament in order to secure a departure on Oct 31, but did not entirely rule it out.
“I’m not attracted to archaic devices like proroguing,” he said.

reduce corporation tax to the lowest rates in the advanced world would only “exacerbate” the UK’s financial problems.
