Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt have made their pitch to be the following executive at the first of 16 Conservative Party hustings.
The two contenders for Number 10 spread out their vision for the nation at a gathering in Birmingham.
Mr Johnson said these were “dim days” for his gathering, yet demanded he could turn things around.
In any case, his adversary cautioned individuals not to choose the “wrong individual” and hazard “fiasco”.
Mr Johnson said the most significant thing was to “complete Brexit”.
He stated: “My desire is to join this nation and our general public… we should take Britain forward.
“We have to find another trust in our nation.”
