The UK's former Secretary of State Boris Johnson has started his election campaign for the post of the Conservative Party's leader and the Prime Minister.

Johnson said earlier launching his leadership manifesto that he wanted to agree a withdrawal deal with Brussels, but wanted to keep the option of a no-deal Brexit.

Interior minister Sajid Javid agreed voters felt the Government was incompetent because of the failure to deliver Brexit but had a jibe at his rival as he launched his own leadership campaign.

"I believe I am now uniquely placed to lead our party and our country through the challenges that lie ahead", he said.

On Brexit, he said he could "make post-Brexit Britain what many naysayers say it can't be", and had a "credible plan to leave by the end of October".

In a campaign video released on Tuesday, Mr Javid said he would bring a "fresh look" to the Conservative Party and was capable of healing the divisions caused by Brexit.

Mr Johnson is regarded as the frontrunner in the contest, with many more endorsements from Tory MPs than any other candidate.

At his launch Mr Johnson was also pressed by journalists on his use of language - including when he wrote in his Daily Telegraph column that Muslim women wearing the burka looked like "letterboxes".

"Occasionally some plaster comes off the ceiling as a result of a phrase I may have used, or indeed as a result of how that phrase has been wrenched out of context and interpreted by those who wish for reasons of their own to caricature my views", he said on Wednesday.

"The canonical account of this event when I was 19 has appeared many many times and I think what most people in this country really want us to focus on in this campaign is what we can do for them", he said.
