  • Let us stagnate no more, let us spring forth and seize the victory people voted for - Rees-Mogg

    he Prime Minister has returned from Brussels victorious. The naysayers, the gloomsters and the doomsters said the previous deal could not be reopened. The Prime Minister got it reopened. They said he could not remove the backstop. He has dismantled it and cast it aside. They said he could not get the EU to agree to allowing the UK remain a single customs territory. Under the deal the UK will leave the customs union, entire, whole and perfect. Like Jason in search of the golden fleece, the Prime Minister has overcome the mightiest of obstacles to return with a deal...

    Customs The whole of the UK will leave the EU customs union. This means the UK will be able to strike trade deals with other countries in the future. There will be a legal customs border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland (which stays in the EU). But in practice the customs border will be between Great Britain and the island of Ireland, with goods being checked at "points of entry" in Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland's say Because Northern Ireland will be set apart from the rest of the UK when it comes to customs and other EU...
  • Nigel Farage attacks Boris Johnson's deal and says he would rather delay Brexit than accept it

    Nigel Farage yesterday attacked Boris Johnson's deal and said that he would rather delay leaving the European Union than accept the Prime Minister's new treaty. The Brexit Party leader also came under fire after attacking Jean-Claude Juncker for saying the EU should not agree to delay the UK's withdrawal from the bloc beyond October 31. Mr. Johnson's deal offers a far harder Brexit than May's deal but falls short of the red lines set by hard Brexiteers like Mr. Farage

    Angry commuters have pulled Extinction Rebellion protesters from the top of a Tube as activists disrupted services across London. At Canning Town station in east London dozens of commuters were seen pulling two campaigners, dressed in jacket and tie, from the top of a Jubilee Line Tube train after they unfurled a banner saying, "Business as usual = death". The pair used a ladder to climb onto the roof, prompting an immediate reaction from commuters, including one who threw his sandwich at them. A drink was also hurled at one of them. One Tube user reportedly shouted: "I need to...

    "Where there's a will, there's a way," European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker declared on Thursday.Somehow, some way, the United Kingdom has finally reached a Brexit deal with the EU, just two weeks before the deadline to leave the bloc. You can read the full revised withdrawal agreement below, which notably addresses a new plan for the Irish backstop. ?????????? Where there is a will, there is a #deal - we have one! It’s a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK and it is testament to our commitment to find solutions. I recommend that #EUCO endorses...

    BRUSSELS: European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker congratulated Prime Minister Boris Johnson on their Brexit withdrawal deal on Thursday and said it meant there should be "no further delay". "We have a deal, and this deal means there is no need for any kind of prolongation," Juncker told reporters as he welcomed the British leader to EU headquarters ahead of summit talks. British MPs are expected to vote on the deal on Saturday. Pro-EU parliamentarians hope they can defeat it and Brexit can still be delayed to allow a general election or a new referendum on whether to leave the EU...

Barack Obama on Wednesday endorsed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s reelection bid, a high-profile boost to the Liberal leader‘s campaign less than a week before voters head to the polls. ...

    Chief Brexiteer Nigel Farage has said that Boris Johnson should accept a delay to Brexit. In a video on his YouTube channel, Farage addresses the Prime Minister directly – calling on him to accept the Brexit extension that’s been “forced” on him by MPs. Indeed, if Johnson doesn’t come back from Brussels with a deal this week, he is mandated to ask the EU for a Brexit delay until 31st January 2020. And now, after haranguing MPs for weeks for “betraying” Brexit, Farage is also in favour of a delay. He says that Johnson should “sit out” this week’s EU...

    Hopes for a breakthrough in the Brexit negotiations between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the European Union have surged in recent days, but the positive mood music from diplomats masks a harder reality for Mr. Johnson: He may be forced into concessions that make his deal impossible to sell at home. Boris is frantically trying to bridge a gap over the thorny issue of how to treat NI in a post-Brexit Europe in time for a crucial summit meeting of the European Union later this week. The down-to-the-wire talks between diplomats began on Tuesday morning, with some officials predicting that...

    Conservative leaflets obtained by the BBC suggest the party accepts the UK might not have left the EU by the time it has to fight an election. One says voting for The Brexit Party would mean "more delay" because Nigel Farage's party "can't deliver Brexit". The "new campaigning products", made available to agents and activists last week, also reveal some of the arguments the party may use in an election. Boris Johnson has insisted the UK will leave the EU at the end of October.

    The UK will not join other European countries such as France, Germany, the Netherlands and Finland in halting selling arms to Turkey after its invasion in Syria, the Independent reports. The UK was initially also against an EU condemnation of Turkey's military attack, but later agreed to the EU's unanimous position. Because of the UK's refusal to a European arms ban, the EU agreed on stopping arms sales unilaterally.

    Boris Johnson appears to be on the brink of reaching a Brexit deal after making major concessions to EU demands over the Irish border. A draft text of the agreement could now be published on Wednesday if Downing Street gives the final green light, according to senior EU and British sources. It is understood that the negotiating teams have agreed in principle that there will be a customs border down the Irish Sea. A similar arrangement was rejected by Theresa May as a deal that no British prime minister could accept. Johnson will still have to win over parliament –...

And yet, despite everything, an intriguing question is bubbling up in London, even among some of those predisposed to hate anything Johnson does or stands for: Is he winning? ..... Whatever else can legitimately be leveled at Johnson’s door, he cannot (yet) be accused of making the same mistake. He has defined what he wants from Brexit—maximum sovereignty and no more delays. The rest of his policy flows from there. ..... Johnson’s political strategy at home is also showing early signs of success. In contrast to...

The Tory arch-Brexiteer said that concessions with EU chiefs were “inevitable” but the PM could be trusted to “deliver”. ...Mr Rees-Mogg wrote in The Telegraph: “In the final stages of the Brexit negotiation, compromise will inevitably be needed, something even the staunchest Leavers recognise albeit unwillingly - but as a Leaver Boris can be trusted.

Welsh MP Jonathan Edwards will try to rally support for a Welsh referendum today, as he speaks to delegates at the second day of Plaid Cymru's autumn conference. He is expected to say the Brexit referendum “drove a sledgehammer through the post-devolution period” and has caused a shift towards Welsh independence. The comments come after Plaid Cymru’s party leader, Adam Price, said he believed a referendum on Welsh independence would be held by 2030. ...The...

    As rich people in the U.K. fret over Brexit and the possibility of an avowed socialist coming to power, Italy and other European countries are slashing taxes to tempt the jet set to relocate. Of mounting concern for many of Britain’s wealthiest is the possibility that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s embattled government could give way to a high-tax Labour government led by Jeremy Corbyn. A fund manager described the anxious attitude of the wealthy as “in case of Corbyn, break glass.” That concern coupled with the uncertainty created by Brexit and its potential impact on the U.K economy, means some...
