Brexit: Ex-PM vows legal action if UK Parliament suspended

Brexit: Ex-PM vows legal action if UK Parliament suspended

Johnson and Hunt were the most popular candidates to replace Theresa May after a series of votes by Conservative MPs.

Mr Clark warned in an interview broadcast on Friday that the disruption of a no-deal departure would lead to the shedding of jobs. Though she didn't mention Johnson by name, he has made a career out of being the biggest personality in the room. If that were to happen, there would be a queue of people who would seek judicial review.

"There is a real difference".

Monmouth Assembly Member Nick Ramsay said: "I would also like to see more of a Conservative influence on the way money in Wales is spent but I think we need to respect the current settlement and work on building up that influence within the Assembly itself".

The outgoing PM, who will be exiting Downing Street to make way for Hunt or Johnson by July 23, said she felt a "mixture of pride and disappointment" and that despite having to go earlier than she wanted, she had been the "right person" for the job and was "immensely proud" of what she had accomplished.

Describing herself as an "unfashionable politician", May admitted to making mistakes in handling Brexit, and went on admit that the possibility of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister was her biggest fear.


She added it's unlikely that her successor will negotiate further Brexit concessions from the EU.

The final two in the race to be the UK's next prime minister have been addressing potential voters.

She added: "I'm backing Jeremy Hunt because I think he's the best person to be able to get the best deal amended from the European Union and be able to sell that in Parliament to people".

"If a male Prime Minister's voice had broken up, it would have been said "what great patriotism, they really love their country".

The programme was scheduled for Tuesday, but a spokeswoman said the BBC had not been able to "reach agreement" with Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson.
