UK: Overwhelming support for Boris Johnson - Deutsche Bank

And Environment Secretary Mr Gove said it was "all to play for" and he was "very much looking forward" to candidates' TV debates on Channel 4 on Sunday and on BBC One next Tuesday.

And he denied using cocaine since a "single inconclusive event" more than 30 years ago.

"Everyone is going to have to demonstrate that they have not just the vision but the nerve and mettle to deal with the European Union and with a minority government", he told The Daily Telegraph.

No, they expect Boris to use his "charm and charisma" - they said that, I didn't, - to try and push an amended version of the Withdrawal Agreement surrender treaty through.

But he said while it was important to have "sensible grown-up debate", he was wary of taking part in something that could be deemed as yet more Tory infighting.

"They will give it, I think, because they don't want to go back to a border, and they want to have free trade with the Republic".

After stalling for the past week on whether he would participate in the debates, Mr Johnson said he is prepared to take part.

It came after he was criticised for a lack of media appearances, with his rival, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, accusing him of hiding.

The field of hopefuls to take on one of the most challenging political assignments in Europe narrowed to six on Friday after Health Secretary Matt Hancock withdrew.

Mexico says it may have recording of Frida Kahlo's voice
The library says more Kahlo recordings could be on 1,300 "Bachelor" tapes that still need to be cataloged and digitized. Kahlo married fellow Mexican artist Diego Rivera in 1929, and their tumultuous relationship was marred in controversy.

Mr Raab, who needs to add to his first round tally of 27 votes if he is to continue after the second round, also contrasted his background as a grammar school boy and the son of a refugee with ex-public school rivals like the Old Etonian Mr Johnson.

I have chose to withdraw from the race to be the next leader of the Conservative Party. Gove, Raab, Javid, Hancock and Stewart all made it through to the next round which is due to take place next Tuesday, and where candidates will need to secure 33 votes (10% of the total).

The leadership contest in the UK's ruling Conservative Party follows May's decision to resign last month after she was unable to deliver Brexit.

He said he was "hugely grateful" for the support he had received throughout the campaign and that he was "proud of the way we managed to set the agenda".

"I will look for the best way to advance the values we fought for, of free enterprise, and an open, aspirational, free society, underpinned by an optimistic belief in the value of each individual person", he said in an e-mailed statement.

Priti Patel, a Conservative lawmaker, defended Johnson, saying he had answered questions at meetings of Conservative lawmakers and there would be plenty of opportunities to question him during the campaign.

"It needs to happen by October 31, and we need to get on and do it", he told BBC radio.

Asked about Mr Johnson's popularity with grassroots members of the party, Mr Amin said: "There are many disgusting people who have been popular".
