Tim Sebastian interviews Mark Francois, Conservative Member of UK Parliament.
Ten candidates are vying for the leadership of Britain's oldest political party — and the keys to 10 Downing Street. Brexit brought down Theresa May and is expected to be the dominant debate among potential successors.
Ahead of the Conservative leadership contest in the UK, pro-Brexit MP Mark Francois has criticized outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May and said the withdrawal agreement with the EU is "dead as a dodo."
The UK owes tens of billions of euros when it leaves the EU but Boris Johnson — the current front-runner to succeed Theresa May as prime minister — wants to withhold payment. He's looking for "greater clarity" on Brexit.
Britain's High Court has thrown out a lawsuit accusing Johnson of intentionally lying during the Brexit referendum campaign. This removes a potential hurdle to his Conservative Party leadership bid.
