ICYMI: A senior UK Conservative suggested PM Johnson could Brexit in the next 10 days.
The report was via Bloomberg overnight, reupping it here:
- A senior U.K. Conservative suggested Boris Johnson could take Britain out of the European Union in the next 10 days -- without a deal -- as a surprise maneuver to outflank his opponents in parliament.
- Tom Tugendhat, chairman of Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, floated the idea on Twitter that Johnson could deliver Brexit before the Group of Seven summit begins on Aug. 24, and then call a general election afterward.
Tugendhat says Johnson needs no authorization from Parliament to do so.
