"A decision was taken - just get on with it - and they are not in that same polarized way that Parliament has been about this issue".
But, when pressed during an interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil, he refused to say whether the United Kingdom would have left by Christmas, though claimed "it's not going to be months". "We now have to get behind a new government".
"I actually think there's quite a difference between Parliament and the public", she said.
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.
"As we enter the final weeks of the leadership race", they write, "Mr Hunt has failed to close the gap and exploit the perceived "chaotic" start to the Johnson campaign".

"I want the elected representatives of the people to take their responsibilities and work together to get this thing over the line", Johnson said in a televised BBC interview late Friday.

She said if the future relationship had been negotiated alongside there would not have been the same issue with the backstop.
This will also be the first time a sitting British Prime Minister has been chosen by party members.
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 also a degree of disappointment because there was more that I wanted to do. Some 34% said they felt more positive about Hunt than at the end of June, against 22% who felt more negatively.
With Parliament not sitting, MPs would not be able to block it - for example, by holding a vote of no confidence in the prime minister.
