Jeremy Hunt, one of the two people vying to replace British Prime Minister Theresa May, said on Monday that rival Boris Johnson was a coward for avoiding public head-to-head debates on Brexit.
“On the question of debates, he is being a coward,” Hunt told Sky News. “It is very disrespectful to say that you're not going to appear in any head-to-head debates in the two weeks when (party members) can see you before they've actually voted.”
“People need to know what you're going to do and you need to answer those questions,” Hunt, Britain's foreign minister, said. “I promise Boris Johnson the fight of his life and he's going to have that and he's going to lose.”
Foreign minister Jeremy Hunt took aim at rival Boris Johnson’s “do or die” pledge to take Britain out of the European Union on Oct. 31 no matter what, saying the frontrunner to become prime minister could destroy Brexit and the government.
Boris Johnson said on Wednesday he would only take Britain out of the EU without a deal as a “last resort”, launching his campaign to be prime minister with a promise to unify a country deeply divided over Brexit.
Trump told the Sunday Times in an interview that Britain should "walk away" from talks and refuse to pay a £39 billion ($49 billion) divorce bill if it doesn't get better terms from the EU.
