This, from the Spectator, regarding leaving the EU on Oct 31st.
"Trying to force Brexit on that date, Hunt said, could lead to a general election, a Corbyn government, followed by no Brexit at all. If the government were close to cutting a deal, he has said, then we should extend the deadline. If there were no deal in sight, on the other hand, Hunt says he would take Britain out of the EU without a deal."
"But how much difference, in practice, is there between what Boris and Hunt are saying? Both, after all, are saying that they are prepared to leave without a deal – and the EU is adamant that it will not reopen negotiations."
"There is a strong likelihood, then, that we will end up leaving without a deal. All that Hunt’s approach would achieve is to prolong the day of reckoning yet further, put it off maybe another two, three months.
I don't think any of us could bear the dithering to go on.
I feel Brexit has to happen and if Boris Johnson is the MP who will take us out on Oct 31st, deal or no deal, he is the best man for the job. IMO.
I am not enamoured with either MP, but the one who is going to make it happen has to take the reins after Theresa May's futile attempts to get us out. I don't think the next PM will be in office long, but whether it is Johnson or Hunt, the man who pulls the plug on the EU will be remembered.
