Chancellor Philip Hammond pictured moving OUT of Downing St as Boris ‘moves in lover’

“If we do not find a solution with the members, we may have to ask the British public to give their opinion again”

Of Boris’ comments, Hammond told The Guardian: “I will take steps to avoid an exit without agreement apart from an explicit parliamentary approval.

“There should be a new and sincere attempt to reach a consensus. If we do not find a solution with the members, we may have to ask the British public to give their opinion again, in one form or another.”

Asked whether he would rule out supporting a motion of no confidence in the next PM, Hammond said: “I do not exclude anything for the moment.”

The frontrunners suggestion forced Commons to vote this week to prevent the next Prime Minister suspending parliament.

Since news of the Commons decision to block a suspension broke, EU diplomats have revealed confidence is growing amongst key member states that a no-deal Brexit can be avoided.

A senior EU diplomat told iNews: “It will be described as a technical delay to save Boris from political embarrassment but then we will have time to find an agreement.”
