MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Boris Johnson, the favourite to become the next British prime minister, refused on Tuesday to rule out suspending parliament to force through a no-deal Brexit.
Asked if he would prorogue parliament, Johnson said at a television debate with his rival Jeremy Hunt: “I’m not going to take anything off the table. I think it would be absolutely bizarre at this stage in the negotiations for the UK, yet again, to be weakening its own position.”
