"I actually think there's quite a difference between Parliament and the public", May said.

Mr Hunt has said that he believes he would be able to get a new deal with Brussels, but if that proved impossible, he would prepare for no deal on 31 October, making a judgment on the best course to follow at the end of September.

Asked if she's going to private accomplished more to persuade MPs to reduction her Brexit contend with the European Union - which they rejected three cases - she responded: "One might per chance repeatedly ogle support and narrate, "If I would sat down and talked to of us more on the complete".
