Johnson warned of legal challenge of suspending parliament to push through Brexit

Tory leadership race

The victor of the contest will be announced the day after and go on to take over from Theresa May, who is serving as caretaker Prime Minister since her resignation last month.

"And they all say in theory yes but in practice no, and I think in practice is probably what comes through here". "A decision was taken - just get on with it - and they are not in that same polarised way that Parliament has been about this issue", she said.

In an interview with the BBC, the prime minister spoke of "frustration" at not seeing Brexit through and underestimating how "entrenched" MPs had become.

"We think that it's beyond the prime minister's powers because parliamentary sovereignty is actually the jewel in the constitutional crown".

Asked if she took responsibility for the failure to get a Brexit deal through, May said: "No". But she was sorry about having to leave when "there was more that I wanted to do".

"Instead we had a range of third-party anti-Brexit organisations and positions that chose to go to the court to derail basically the whole Brexit delivery and also to tie the hands of politicians, the government and Parliament".

Tory former worldwide development secretary and hardline Brexiteer Priti Patel, who is backing Johnson, said she was "not at all surprised" by possible legal action, as she hit out at the "absolutely relentless movement to delay Brexit".

Asked whether he would be prepared to delay by days, weeks or months, Mr Hunt replied: "Well it's not going to be months".

While wishing her successor well, she said she would continue to argue that leaving the European Union "with a good deal" was vital. "It needs to return".

"I regret running a campaign that wasn't really me", she said.

This will also be the first time a sitting British Prime Minister has been chosen by party members.

She said she hoped her critics and supporters alike would feel that "in everything I've done, I've always done what I believed to be in the national interest".

May, who is now serving as caretaker Prime Minister during the course of a leadership contest between United Kingdom foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt and former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, was forced to announce her resignation amid mounting rebellion within her own Cabinet over Brexit at the end of May. His rival, Jeremy Hunt, has insisted he would not take that step.
