Nominations set to close in race to be next United Kingdom leader

Leading MPs from Britain's governing party battled over Brexit as the contest to become the next Conservative prime minister officially kicked off with the declaration of 10 candidates for the top job.

With the battlelines sharpening, Mrs Leadsom, who quit last month over Theresa May's final attempt to get her deal over the line, warned Brexit could not be delayed any further.

Speaking about Mr Johnson's recent visit to Aberdeen, the MP said: "The clamour for selfies and people just wanting to meet him showed just how broad Boris's appeal is". He was the only one to support holding a second Brexit referendum.

But Johnson's bombastic rhetoric has alienated many colleagues and voters, he has been accused of lying during the Brexit campaign and his time as foreign minister was underwhelming. "We need a more positive attitude to this and I think the country would welcome it", said Mr Javid. "I know you have before, and I know you may not believe in your heart that you can do it, but the Conservative Party membership deserve a choice".

But writing in the Daily Telegraph, Lord Hague said that without a proper plan for dealing with Brexit, the next Prime Minister would head a "sandcastle administration" which would quickly crumble.

"I would seek the particular expertise of some of the Labour chairmen of select committees, for example, who I think could have a really good role to play", Leadsom said in an interview Tuesday.

Because the government has seen so many resignations over Theresa May's bungled handling of Brexit over the past three years, many Conservative big-hitters languish on the back-benches and outside of government.

The United Kingdom could be heading toward a constitutional crisis over Brexit as numerous candidates vying to succeed May are prepared to leave the European Union on October 31 without a deal but parliament has indicated it will try to thwart such a scenario.

"I have always found it unusual that we have to write the check before there is a deal", says Johnson, in an interview with the Sunday Times.

"If Britain does want to leave, and if it wants to leave in an orderly fashion, then this is the way it must do it", she added. After which, 16,000 party members will choose Britain's next PM.

He did not hold a high-profile campaign launch on Monday, but his rivals lined up to take potshots at him and his pledge to raise the point at which workers begin paying a 40 percent income tax to 80,000 pounds (102,000 US dollars) annual pay from 50,000 pounds.

Nominations are closing in the race to become Britain's next prime minister, with nearly a dozen contenders already battling it out over Brexit, tax policy and past drug use. Critics have also pointed out that when he was education secretary, Mr. Gove ordered teachers who took drugs to resign.

The flamboyant former mayor of London has been accused in the past of focusing on style over substance and failing to grasp details, something to which his rivals alluded.

The Brexit Secretary delivered a damning indictment on May's deal which he has suggested would lock the United Kingdom into the EU's orbit for years to come.

He says he will take Britain out of the bloc without a deal if necessary, and today promised a tax cut for millions of middle- and high-income Britons.

He received a boost with the endorsement of euroskeptic Defense Secretary Penny Mordaunt, although he is likely to anger some in the ruling party by refusing to rule out another Brexit delay.

Eleven MPs are vying to replace May and whoever succeeds her as head of the party will automatically enter Downing Street.
