Theresa May speaks of Brexit frustration in final interview as British PM

During the exchanges, Mr Johnson said it would be "insane, now", to say the government might not deliver Brexit by Oct 31, in a hint that he could be prepared to accept a delay at a later date.

The fact that Johnson, who is expected to become the next PM, didn't support the ambassador was one of the reasons he stood down, says Dr Farr, as he added that effectively, the next PM sided with the foreign government over one of his own representatives in what is an extraordinary situation. "A decision was taken - just get on with it - and they are not in that same polarised way that Parliament has been about this issue".

May, who endured several crises in her failed effort to find a compromise Brexit deal that parliament could ratify, said she underestimated lawmakers' opposition.

"It is because parliament may try and take a no-deal Brexit off the table altogether and so I think - my commitment is that I think I'm the best person to get a deal and if we get a deal it will be on or around the 31st of October but I can't control what Parliament does and that's why I'm being honest with people about the difficulties".

Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt appeared at the Conservative Party hustings in Wyboston, Cambridgeshire on Saturday.

"We will get a deal by October 31st", Mr Johnson said.

'I think that unfortunately what I said on that TV debate was misrepresented to Kim'.

However, speaking to reporters at the White House, Mr Trump said he had since been told Sir Kim had said "some very good things" about him.

However he came under pressure for his comments over Britain's ambassador to the US Sir Kim Darroch in the row over the leak of his diplomatic dispatches.

Theresa May says she will feel a "mixture of pride and disappointment" when she leaves Downing Street in 12 days' time.

She said if the future relationship had been negotiated alongside there would not have been the same issue with the backstop.

'It's because prime ministers should only make promises they know they can deliver. But she was sorry about having to leave when "there was more that I wanted to do".

"There were moments when I sat here and thought I wish we'd got Brexit over the line - you know I wish we'd managed to achieve that".

Another expert, David Collins, professor of worldwide economic law at City, University of London and author of Negotiating Brexit: The Legal Basis for European Union and Global Trade, said it appears as though Boris Johnson is poised to become the new PM as he is generally more well liked by the Conservative Party membership and has been more explicit about how he will respond to Brexit.

"On the other side, people who said they didn't want to leave with no deal, but weren't prepared to vote for a deal in order to make sure that what they wanted happened".
