Boris Johnson admits he doesn't know details of his Brexit plan B

Both men found the experience testing, although while Johnson seemed to bluff his way through the encounter, Hunt often appeared to be frozen in the headlights.

"But the reality is that we face a hung Parliament with people - not just in the Labour Party but in our own party - absolutely determined to stop us leaving without a deal".

BJ: Actually I spoke to him the following day and said how sad I was that he had resigned, and he pointed out that he didn't watch it.

"I'm not going to take anything off the table, any more than I'm going to take no-deal off the table", Johnson said.

"Prime ministers should only make promises they know they can deliver". And there's another reason why we have to be careful about this 31st of October date.

Vaz asked the Leader of the Commons, Conservative MP Mel Stride: "Will the government explicitly rule out proroguing parliament to force a no-deal Brexit?".

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

Clark implored colleagues to "strain every sinew to avoid that" as both Tory rivals are pledging to leave the European Union with no deal if they have to.

Johnson's rival Hunt reiterated in his half hour BBC interview that he had received encouragement from European leaders that they would be willing to abandon the backstop to strike a new deal - claims Berlin has previously pushed back on.

"I think that every person who considers the evidence that companies have given, whether it's in the automotive sector, whether it's in the food sector, whether it's in aerospace, whether it's in industries up and down the country..." We believe our voice is important - both in representing the pro-EU perspective and also to help rebalance the right wing extremes of much of the United Kingdom national press.

"I think we have achieved a lot over the last three years but whenever you come to the end of a premiership I think everybody will always feel that there is more that they wanted to do".

"But before then what we must do is get our great party ready again, we must fill our coffers flush with cash and we must put out - once again - with greater power and clarity and conviction, our belief in modern, one-nation conservatism". We then delayed it for a further six months.

She said: "I think it'll be a mixture of pride at having done the job". BJ: I would confide entirely in paragraph 5B, because that is - AN: How would you get round what's in 5C?

Mr Johnson sidestepped questions about whether he still believed Donald Trump was "stupefyingly ignorant" - in reference to comments he made as London mayor - and came unstuck when grilled on the detail of world trade rules.

AN: And how would you handle paragraph 5C?

Mr Johnson dismissed the "very odd" threat, insisting that parliament should accept its responsibility to deliver Brexit.

Speaking later at a leadership hustings in Cheltenham, he said: "Maybe I will pay a political price for being honest with people".
