Johnson and Hunt make pitch to Tory members in UK leadership race

Reports of Boris Johnson domestic 'row' shakes up Conservative leadership race

Conservative MP Boris Johnson leaves a house in London on 30 May 2019.

When asked about the domestic disturbance, Johnson said "people are entitled to ask about me and my determinations, my character and what I want to do for the country", but refused to comment on the police visit.

"On Sunday, the news media retained focus on the altercation, with banner headlines asking "Why won't Boris tell us what happened?' (Sunday Express), "Boris row was so frightening I had to call the police" (Sunday Mirror) and claims that 'Boris 'is a security risk" (The Sunday Times).

"If we got to the 31st of October, and the European Union have not shown the willingness to negotiate a better deal. the political risk of no Brexit is far worse than the economic risk of no deal", Hunt said.

"But, of course, we are always happy to have constructive discussions".

"Don't boo the great man", Mr Johnson said, but Mr Dale suggested he was "completely avoiding" the question.

Sky News invited Mr Johnson and Jeremy Hunt to take part in the event tonight, hosted by Kay Burley.

She had obtained a temporary injunction against him, and told police her husband wouldn't turn in the guns himself. She said she has been in communication with Irby's friends and hopes to set up a meeting with the woman soon.


Asked yesterday about the incident, Johnson's supporters insisted it was irrelevant to the leadership contest.

"I sent him a text when he resigned, about half past three in the morning to say I did not think it was the end, but rather, a bit like Churchill, it'll just be the beginning".

He instead tried to focus on his policies, saying "we need to get Brexit done" and promising to prepare Britain for a no deal exit from the European Union if a deal can not be reached.

In an interview with the BBC Mr Hunt also accused the EU of ignoring viable alternatives to the Northern Irish border backstop in order to keep the United Kingdom inside the Customs Union.

"I think Andy Street has got the right idea", he added.

"What I'm talking about is a deal that doesn't involve the backstop as it's constituted, so it would be different".

Trade experts have expressed scepticism that technology can solve the border problem, at least in the near term.

The Westfield News reported he was placed on probation for one year and had his license suspended for 210 days. Zhukovskyy looked down at his feet as he was led into the courtroom with his hands cuffed behind his back.


He said he believed the government would "know very soon, well before 31 October" whether a new deal could be negotiated, and based on that, he would make a decision about whether or not to pursue no deal instead.

Talks are "not going to be easy" but "it's not impossible either", because a deal is in both sides' interests, Hunt said.

Police confirmed they were called to the couple's south London flat after a loud argument was heard by neighbours, who said they heard slamming and banging, adding that at one point Symonds could be heard telling Johnson to "get off me" and "get out of my flat".

He told the BBC late Monday that he had never spoken about his loved ones in public because "if you do, you drag them into things that.in a way that is not fair on them".

He told LBC: "People are looking at this thing and thinking "Parliament is just not going to do this".

"During his time as Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt brought the NHS in England to its knees - forcing doctors to take legal action in an attempt to stop backdoor privatisation of the health service".

"The way to earn that trust with Conservative Party members and with the country is to subject yourself to scrutiny to answer questions about what you actually want to do", he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

He also said that his Republican colleagues in Congress are yielding to president's "threats and bullying" if they allow this to happen.


"Twenty years on from the establishment of our parliament we face the most important example of a democratic deficit in Scotland's post war history", Ms Sturgeon said.
