UK PM candidate Javid offers to pay for Brexit border solution

UK PM candidate Javid offers to pay for Brexit border solution

He and other contenders say they can get better terms from European Union leaders in Brussels than the deal that May agreed to but was unable to push through Parliament.

Boris Johnson, the front-runner to succeed Theresa May as United Kingdom prime minister, pledged a hard line on Brexit - including the option of leaving without a deal - as contenders to lead the Conservative Party sought support before the list of candidates is finalised tonight NZT.

At the same time, Javid refused to guarantee that if elected prime minister, he would take the United Kingdom out of the European Union on 31 October, but added that his government would do "everything in our power" to leave by that date.

Britain's Environment Secretary Michael Gove leaves the BBC, after appearing on the Andrew Marr Show, in London, Britain.

The move would cost 9.6 billion pounds ($12.2 billion) annually and be partly funded by using money set aside in the current budget to deal with the consequences of Brexit, the paper reported.

During a brief initial stop in Ireland before the commemorations in France, Trump told Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar that the contentious Brexit issue of the Irish border would "work out very well". "We can go for much greater economic growth - and still be the cleanest, greenest society on earth".

"I think our friends and partners need to understand that the money is going to be retained until such time as we have greater clarity about the way forward", Mr Johnson told the Sunday Times. The current deadline is October 31.

Mr Johnson said he would scrap the backstop - something the European Union has so far refused to do - and would settle the Irish border issue only when Brussels is ready to agree to a future relationship.

UK HOME SECRETARY Sajid Javid says that Britain should fund a new border arrangement by paying the Irish government half a billion pounds.

"With the key to No 10 in the hands of a no-dealer, most likely Boris Johnson, an urgent motion of no-confidence will be sought", the Carmarthen East and Dinefwr MP told the Sunday Times.

The former foreign secretary has picked up support from James Cleverly, who pulled out of the leadership race and from prominent Brexiteer Steve Baker who had been considering his own run for the post.

"I always thought it was extraordinary that we should agree to write the entire cheque before having a final deal", he said.

Ms Davidson says Mr Javid's working class background means he embodies the Conservatives values of "aspiration".
