Don't Turn Boris Johnson Into 'Theresa May In Drag', Says Andrew Pierce

Boris Johnson Tory minister attacks 'lefty neighbours' for telling police of loud altercation involving likely new PM then deletes tweet

After a series of ballots to whittle down the race to two candidates, 160,000 Conservative Party members will now chose either Johnson and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt as their next leader - and thus the next prime minister.

Conservative Party leadership candidate Jeremy Hunt leaves his home in London, Britain, June 24, 2019.

Penn says that by virtue of the fact that he voted Remain in the Brexit referendum, his motives for calling the police have been questioned. "It is cowardice not to appear in head-to-head debates".

Sky has cancelled the debate as Johnson declined to take part.

"This is an audition to be the prime minister of the United Kingdom and Boris needs to show that he is prepared to answer hard questions".

Johnson also came under scrutiny on Sunday for his relationship with Steve Bannon, the controversial former adviser to US President Donald Trump.

Whoever takes the Conservative Party leadership in the week beginning July 22 - and therefore becomes prime minister - would then face the looming Brexit deadline of October 31.

Boris Johnson faced fresh pressure in his bid to become United Kingdom prime minister amid calls for him to answer questions about a spat with his partner that brought the police to his London home and signs he may be losing some public support.

"There were no offences or concerns apparent to the officers and there was no cause for police action".

The Guardian newspaper, which first reported the story, said an unidentified neighbour had heard a woman screaming followed by "slamming and banging". At one point Ms Symonds could be heard telling Mr Johnson to "get off me" and "get out of my flat".

Full information will be provided at the official unveiling of the device, which is expected to take place in NY in early August. As far as specifications go, not much is known about the phone's internal hardware except its camera set up.

When asked at the hustings about the incident, Mr Johnson said people "are entitled to ask about me and my determination, my character and what I want to do for the country".

Mr Hunt now leads Mr Johnson by 32%-29% with the wider electorate on who will be the best PM.

"Once clear that no one was harmed, I contacted the Guardian, as I felt it was of important public interest", he said.

The victor will need to succeed where May failed in pushing a deal with the European Union through parliament, or face the prospect of leaving without a deal, which MPs have warned could collapse the government and trigger a general election. "I've had my run-ins with Boris - I, infamously, was nearly tackled to the ground in the 2017 general election by this man".

The EU has repeatedly said it will not renegotiate the withdrawal deal. If parliament took a no-deal Brexit off the table, he intimated there would have to be delay.

"I'm sorry, you don't have that sort of private life if you're asking people to choose you to be their prime minister", Sir Malcolm said.

"I've long held the view that Boris Johnson is unsuitable to be prime minister of this country".

Allison Pearson, a columnist with the Daily Telegraph, told BBC Radio 4: "What business do we have to listen in to a private lovers' tiff?" "I went back upstairs into my flat, and we agreed that we should call the police".

Like Hunt, Johnson promised lower taxes if he wins the top job.
