The man who was Britain's top finance official until three weeks ago broke his silence on the new administration Wednesday, saying 'unelected people' are pushing the government toward a damaging no-deal Brexit that isn't backed by Parliament or the voters. Philip Hammond, who stepped down as Treasury chief before Boris Johnson became prime minister, said the government is making demands that are bound to derail talks with the European Union because they are unacceptable to the bloc. Writing in the Times of London, Hammond said Johnson had moved from a tough negotiating stance to a 'wrecking' one by insisting on changes to the withdrawal agreement hammered out over the past two years.
