He told the Newport audience: 'Once Brexit is done, we will take the knife to the pen pushers in Whitehall.' Alliance Party MEP Naomi Long tweeted calling for police to investigate Farage for his comments. She said: 'Can you confirm...

    ATTORNEY General Geoffrey Cox has revealed plans for a THIRD election vote - as he ripped into disgraceful Labour MPs for stopping the PM from going to the people. After Boris Johnson dashed back from New York to address furious MPs this afternoon, the Cabinet minister told the Commons to watch out for an "election motion that will be coming before the House shortly" Westminster is reeling today after the dramatic ruling from the Supreme Court yesterday which ruled Boris Johnson's advice to the Queen on shutting down Parliament was unlawful. As tensions ran high in Westminster on another dramatic...

    Nigel Farage blasted Brussels chief Guy Verhofstadt, for his apparent calls for a “European empire”, telling it straight that the EU is “building an empire”. The Brexit Party leader took to his LBC show after comments by Guy Verhofstadt about a “European empire”. Mr. Farage said: “Andrew Adonis, who of course I’ve spoken to you many times before here at LBC, is really one of the fanatics for ‘Remain’. Even Adonis said, ‘I don’t believe in a European Empire but a free European Union; the world has had enough of empires’. Well, hear-hear to that, Lord Adonis, but that is...

    Cross-party group of MPs urges greater priority be given for trade talks with India The government must make it easier for Indians to come to Britain to secure a post-Brexit trade deal with one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Warning that Britain is falling behind in the global race to engage with India on its path to becoming an economic superpower, the Commons foreign affairs committee said ministers urgently needed to update their strategy on India and could not rely on historical links from the days of empire. The cross-party group of MPs urged greater priority for post-Brexit trade...
  • Brexit: What is the Irish border backstop?

    BBC News NI Economics & Business Editor ^ | June 11, 2019 | John Campbell
    A key part of the Brexit negotiations has been the border that separates Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The border is a matter of great political, security and diplomatic sensitivity in Ireland. Therefore the UK and EU agreed that whatever happens as a result of Brexit there should be no new physical checks or infrastructure at the frontier. This is where the controversial "backstop" comes in. Go on then, what is the backstop? The backstop is a position of last resort, to maintain a seamless border on the island of Ireland in the event that the UK leaves...

    Outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May has vowed to stop the UK leaving the EU without a deal by aligning with Remainers in the Tory Party including Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Amber Rudd and Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond. Sources close to Mrs May told The Mail on Sunday that despite her failure to pass the EU-approved withdrawal treaty, she has “not budged” from her position that UK should not leave the bloc unless it has an exit deal. One ally told the Sunday newspaper: “She made little secret of the fact that she did not want...

    The 'special relationship' between the UK and the US is elusive. Trump's visit to Britain nailed the optics of an empire that was wilting under the weight of an 'unequal' relation Romance and nostalgia surrounding the grandeur of the British empire in the 19th and 20th century is predicated on "the empire on which the sun never sets." This pomposity was extended to include emerging America in the mid-19th century to posit the Anglophone domain, as noted by Alexander Campbell in 1852, "To Britain and America, god has granted the possession of the new world; and because the sun never...

    Italy's far-right League was one of the biggest winners in last month's EU elections and its leader, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, has sought to persuade Europe's nationalist parties to set aside their differences and form a 10-party European Alliance for People and Nations in the new assembly. Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of Poland's conservative ruling party Law and Justice (PiS), ruled out joining on account of the pro-Russian stance of Salvini, France's National Rally, led by Marine Le Pen, and the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

    Conservative member of Parliament Boris Johnson, who campaigned to leave the EU., is the clear favorite to replace May among bookmakers and party members, though he faces several challenges. Trump described Johnson, a former mayor of London, as a friend during his visit to the U.K. in 2018. The U.S. president also said Johnson would make a good prime minister, comments that irritated May at the time and for which he apologized. The delayed Brexit process and the widespread hatred of May’s deal triggered a surge in support for the populist leader Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, which is set to...

    Nigel Farage warns today he would fight for a second referendum on Britain in Europe if the remain campaign won by a narrow margin next month. The Ukip leader said a small defeat for his leave camp would be “unfinished business” and predicted pressure would grow for a re-run of the 23 June ballot. Farage told the Mirror: “In a 52-48 referendum this would be unfinished business by a long way. If the remain campaign win two-thirds to one-third that ends it.” The threat by a veteran of the Europhobic struggle to pull Britain out of the European Union illustrates...

    Nigel Farage, one of the leaders of a campaign to leave the European Union, launched a new Brexit Party on Friday, promising to put “the fear of God” into lawmakers he accused of betraying Britain’s decision to quit the bloc. In the central English city of Coventry, Farage, 55, whose former party UKIP is credited by many with forcing Britain’s 2016 referendum on EU membership, told supporters his party was fielding an impressive team in next month’s European Parliament elections. […] “I’m doing this because … I did actually, rather stupidly, for a moment believe that we’d won,” Farage said,...

    Nigel Farage was spotted enjoying a slap-up lunch at one of London's most exclusive restaurants - as his followers trudged through muddy fields. The ex-Ukip leader lunched at posh Italian restaurant in Chelsea yesterday, where a Dover Sole costs £39 and the cheapest wine is £40 a bottle. At the same time, Mr Farage's March to Leave was expected to yomp through the village of Little Missenden, Bucks. A handful of die-hard Brexiteers are walking the length of England ahead of a protest expected today outside Parliament. But their leader skipped Thursday's leg of the march, choosing to enjoy fine...

    Nigel Farage is being lined up as leader of a new pro-Brexit party if Britain’s departure from the European Union is delayed beyond 29 March. The former Ukip leader said he had offered his enthusiastic support to the Brexit party after being sounded out as its potential leader. Catherine Blaiklock, Ukip’s former economics spokeswoman, confirmed she had applied to register the party with the Electoral Commission on 11 January and that it would be ready to fight any snap general election or the local elections across England in May. She told the Guardian on Sunday: “I think people feel treason...

    Theresa May’s government didn’t just lose a crucial vote on Tuesday, it also suffered the biggest defeat by a sitting administration in British history. Her Brexit deal, which set out the terms under which Britain was supposed to leave the European Union on March 29, was rejected by a majority of 230 MPs. That’s more than a third of the membership of the House of Commons. The word “catastrophe” barely covers it. This number was far higher than many commentators had dared to believe was likely. And yet despite Brexiteers like me being happy that Mrs. May’s appalling deal was...
