Bypassing parliament on no-deal Brexit would be unlawful, says campaigner

"But the reality is that we face a hung parliament with people - not just in the Labour Party but in our own party - absolutely determined to stop us leaving without a deal".
But he again refused to rule out such a radical step, even though former prime minister John Major and Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond have said they'd be prepared to take legal action to prevent that course of action.
Theresa May says MPs are so entrenched over Brexit, they could not compromise on a deal for Britain's departure from the EU.
He argued the United Kingdom could continue to trade tariff-free with the European Union under Article 24 of the GATT - but both the European Union and the World Trade Organisation have said it wouldn't work in the event of a chaotic Brexit. The 62-year-old senior Conservative Party MP, who took charge as Prime Minister in the wake of David Cameron's resignation after the vote in favour of Brexit in June 2016, admitted she had wrongly assumed MPs would be "eager to get Brexit over the line".
Speaking about the prospect of prorogation of Parliament on Sky News's Sophy Ridge On Sunday, hosted by Niall Paterson, she said: "We think that it's beyond the Prime Minister's powers because parliamentary sovereignty is actually the jewel in the constitutional crown and to bypass and to close the doors of Parliament, we feel from the advice and the... case law we've looked at, that that would be beyond a prime minister's powers, it would be an abuse of his powers to close Parliament, to get through or to not get through, to limit the voice of the representatives that we all elect".
By contrast, Johnson's rival for the top job - Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt - has said he would allow another delay to Brexit, if a deal were within reach.
Mr Hunt has said that he believes he would be able to get a new deal with Brussels, but if that proved impossible, he would prepare for no deal on 31 October, making a judgment on the best course to follow at the end of September.
Tottenham return to Leeds for Phillips
Newcastle, Bournemouth and Wolves are also all said to have an interest in signing Phillips this summer. Tottenham have already spent close to £10m on Clarke but could fund a swoop for Phillips now too.
Either Mr Hunt or Mr Johnson will take over from Mrs May the next day.
Mr Johnson has insisted that Brexit must happen by October 31 "come what may", saying the impact of No Deal could be "vanishingly inexpensive" if the United Kingdom prepares properly.
He told the BBC: "I think we've got to come out on October 31 and I think it is very odd that those who are saying they would delay even further can't set another date".
Mr Johnson's lack of explicit support for Mr Darroch during the ITV debate on Tuesday was widely seen to have been the final straw for the envoy following the leak of his diplomatic cables criticising Donald Trump's White House. That came as British police opened an investigation into the leak.
She pointed to the wider political situation with the rise of the Brexit Party, saying: 'I accept that the circumstances have changed as well'.
But the interview on Friday (July 12) highlights Mr Johnson's weak spot - his critics say he's bad on details and has made blunders when he was foreign secretary by not being well enough prepared.
"So I think that I underestimated the unwillingness of parts some people in parliament to compromise".
He argued that American sanctions "should be seen as weapons of warfare" due to their "costly" consequences. Two major powers at the meeting, China and Russian Federation , blamed the US for backing out of that deal.
