London – Jeremy Hunt, one the leading candidates vying to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May, said he would leave the European Union without a deal, but with a heavy heart.

He added that he hoped the bloc would engage with a new British leader.

“Our failure to deliver Brexit has put our country and our party in grave peril.

“The leadership I offer is based on simple truth: without Brexit, there will be no Conservative government and maybe no Conservative Party.

“If we want a deal, we are going to have to engage seriously with Brussels.

“From my conversations with European leaders, is clear to me there is a deal to be done, they want us to come up with proposals,” Hunt said.

Hunt, who is secretary, said that with a “more aggressive Russia” and a “more autocratic China”, he would boost defence spending if he became prime minister.

“Peace comes strength.

“With a more aggressive and a more autocratic China, I pledge to increase the proportion our GDP we spend on defense,” Hunt said.
