Hammond: Parliament is opposed to a no deal Brexit

Former British Finance Minister Philip Hammond has said he is confident that parliament can prevent no-deal Brexit unless people around Prime Minister Boris Johnson try to disrupt the affairs.

He added that the proposal to remove the Irish border backstop proposed by Johnson's advisers would lead Britain into an inevitable path to no-deal Brexit.

“To set the bar for negotiations so high that we inevitably leave without a deal would be a betrayal,” Hammond told BBC radio.

Hammond said any attempt to bypass parliament would propel the United Kingdom into a constitutional crisis.

“He has to listen to parliament and parliament is clearly opposed to a no-deal exit,” he said. “I am confident that parliament has the means to express that view.”
