    The neofascist reaction, the force behind Trump, has come about because of the extreme disembeddedness of the economy from social relations. The neoliberal economy has become pure abstraction; as has the market, as has the state, there is no reality to any of these things the way we have classically understood them. Americans, like people everywhere rising up against neoliberal globalization (in Britain, for example, this takes the form of Brexit, or exit from the European Union), want a return of social relations, or embeddedness, to the economy.

    Leading figures in the Vote Leave referendum campaign to take Britain out of the EU have links to a controversial climate-skeptic think tank and question the science behind global warming. The group’s three leaders, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and figurehead Lord Nigel Lawson, have cast doubt over man-made climate change, which is backed by most of the world’s credible experts.Lawson founded the Global Warming Policy Foundation in 2009 and is a noted climate skeptic. Both the foundation, which broke UK Charity Commission rules for anti-climate bias, and Vote Leave share rich donors. Gove — who tried to stop climate change...

    The majority of older voters, Conservative supporters and men are now backing the campaign to stay in the EU following a collapse in support for Brexit, a new exclusive poll for the Telegraph shows. The poll finds that the Remain campaign now has a 13-point lead with just one month until the referendum. The latest ORB poll puts Remain on 55 per cent and Leave trailing on 42 per cent, among people who definitely intend to vote. Amongst all voters, the Remain campaign now has a 20-point lead, with 58 per cent of voters saying they back the pro-EU campaign.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Sunday U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump's comments on banning Muslims from entering the United States were "very dangerous", adding to his criticism of the presumptive Republican nominee. "It's a very dangerous thing to say ... as well as a divisive and wrong one," Cameron told ITV's "Peston on Sunday" show. However, he said he would be prepared to meet Trump if he came to Britain ahead of the U.S. election.

He said the country now risked losing its post-Falklands global reputation for military might. …

It was beaten by Labour in Ogmore, in South Wales, and Sheffield Brightside in South Yorkshire. But it...

    Britain could have to wait a decade for a free trade deal with the United States if it votes to leave the European Union, U.S. President Barack Obama said on Sunday in his final salvo of a disputed foray into British domestic politics. Obama has spent the last three days in London urging Britons to stay in the EU as the British public prepares to vote on whether to remain a member of the bloc on June 23. He played on the two countries' close historic ties to warn that from a U.S. perspective, leaving the EU would be a...

    I wonder who in Downing Street briefed Barack Obama’s team on the wording of his friendly warning to the British. Somebody obviously pointed out that the population of this country retained a quaint obsession with the Second World War, and would therefore treat any reference to the glorious dead as irreproachable. So the President invoked the European graves of those American servicemen who died to protect – well, what exactly? I thought it was the democratic values and reverence for national independence that Britain shared with the US. Did Mr Obama have any sense at all that what he was...

    Now will we grasp that the United States is not our friend, but a foreign country whose interests are often different from ours? President Obama's blatant intervention in our internal affairs is not a sudden breach of a soppy 'special relationship'. The USA's only real special relationship is with Saudi Arabia, a 70-year old hard pact of oil, money and power, welded together with such cynicism it out to make up gasp. Barack Obama's open desire for us to stay inside the EU is by no means the first or worst example of White House meddling here in these islands....

    Boris Johnson has launched an astonishing attack on Barack Obama's 'ridiculous and weird' arguments for Britain to stay in the EU. In an outspoken assault last night, the London Mayor mocked the US President's controversial claim that Anglo-US trade would be hit by Brexit. And he stepped up his war of words with Obama over Winston Churchill, claiming that the wartime leader and the US both stood for democracy – and that the EU didn't. Brexit cheerleader Johnson spoke out as infighting broke out among senior figures in the 'Leave' campaign after Obama's devastating intervention.

But his threat provoked outrage and scorn from pro-Brexit campaigners, who dismissed it as yet another scaremongering ploy from the pro-EU lobby. Mr Obama, who will no longer be in office when decisions on a trade deal are made, delivered a lecture to the British people on why he thinks it is in the UK’s, America’s and the world’s best interests for Britain to vote to stay in the EU on June 23. He weighed into...

    US President Barack Obama told Britons on Friday he loved Winston Churchill, rebuffing suggestions that he had disrespected the wartime leader because of a grudge against Britain linked to his Kenyan ancestry. Obama was visiting London to press Britons to vote to stay in the European Union, and the Churchill issue arose after London Mayor Boris Johnson, who is campaigning for an "Out" vote, brought it up in an article criticizing Obama. "I love Winston Churchill, I love the guy," Obama said when asked at a news conference about Johnson's article.

The president was accused of an "incoherent" and "perverse" intervention in the country's acrimonious debate after urging British voters to remain in the political bloc. Mayor Boris Johnson, who is also the leader of the anti-EU campaign, also speculated that "part-Kenyan" Obama was expressing an "ancestral dislike of the British empire."

    t has already become clear that the campaign to keep Britain in Europe is fundamentally a negative one. As George Osborne’s Brexit dossier confirmed this week, the focus is all about the costs of leaving, not the potential benefits of staying.There are several reasons for this, but chief among them is that uncertainty over Britain’s place in Europe after June 23 cuts both ways.If we leave, no one knows what "out" looks like - choose from a smorgasbord of Norwegian, Swiss-Canadian and WTO trade arrangements - but if the UK stays, it is equally uncertain how Britain will fare long term as the...

Britain's economy would shrink by 6% by 2030 if the country replicated Canada's trading agreement as advocated by Boris Johnson, according to the Chancellor. The 200 page Government report assessing the long term costs and benefits of EU membership and life outside shows the country would be left "permanently poorer". In an article for The Times, Mr Osborne said: "The conclusion is clear: for Britain's economy and for families, leaving the EU...

    If Britain leaves the EU after its referendum in June, it won’t just affect Brits, but people from across Europe — none of whom will get a vote. Now Europeans can get involved — by love-bombing their British friends to encourage them to stay. The idea came from a group of Europeans living in London, who have launched a group called #PleaseDon’tGoUK. Their idea is simple: forget the debates and show the Brits some love — and then post the evidence online. […] The group has had contributions from French people, Italians, Germans, Spaniards and Swedes, both in the UK...

That's the same approach taken by every American administration for 60 years. The default assumption is that we have done pretty well over the last 240 years with a Union of...

    Today Britain goes to the polls to vote in the European elections. Nigel Farage has had a rough ride, to the point where a casual observer might easily assume the election was being fought between Farage's UKIP and a Tory-Labour-Liberal-Media coalition. That's apparently not the case. There are four main choices for voters, notwithstanding the media's wish to make it a referendum on Farage's "racism". According to some of the public polling, that may have done some last-minute damage. According to the internal polling, maybe not: Labour and Conservative polling is showing that attacks claiming Nigel Farage is a racist...

The Ukip and Respect party leaders appeared together at a rally for the Grassroots Out campaign on Friday, launching the campaign to persuade voters to end Britain's membership of the EU. Yet instead of being welcomed, Galloway's appearance prompted a mass walkout at the event, and the party leaders' partnership is now the subject of intense scrutiny - and mockery.

    EU Council President Donald Tusk will present the draft agreement between Britain and Europe - which he hopes will keep the UK in the union - at noon on Tuesday. He claimed "good progress" had been made over the last two days while admitting there were "still outstanding issues". But Tory MPs and other Euro-sceptic campaigners were already indicating that the draft deal will far fall short of their aspirations for a fundamental change in Britain's relationship with the EU. Ukip deputy leader Paul Nuttall said: "The theatrics and drama of David Cameron's sham renegotiation continues and he is playing...

    British Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday accused Donald Trump of making it more difficult to defeat Islamic State extremists. Speaking to the US website Mic.Com, the Tory Party leader said the billionaire was making the "fundamental mistake" of trying to blame all Muslims for the violent ideology of a minority while praising Islam as a religion of peace. Trump, currently leading national polls to be the Republican Party nominee ahead of the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1, sparked international censure in December after he demanded all Muslims be barred from entering the US following the Paris massacre. The property...

    A vote for Britain to leave the EU would be a "jump into a void", according to the head of a new pro-European Conservative campaign group. Former minister Nick Herbert has launched Conservatives for Reform in Europe (CRE) to argue the case for the UK to stay under renegotiated terms. Meanwhile, the education secretary is also warning young people could be "cut off from the world" if the UK leaves. David Cameron has said ministers can campaign on either side of the debate. The PM's push to renegotiate Britain's terms of membership of the EU is expected to come to...

    A prominent ally of Germany's Angela Merkel has threatened to take her government to court over its open door refugee policy as political pressure grows for the chancellor to reduce the number of new arrivals. Bavarian state premier Horst Seehofer said he would send the federal government a written request within the next two weeks to restore "orderly conditions" at the nation's borders, through which one million migrants and refugees passed last year alone. "If it doesn't follow, the state government will have no other choice but to file a suit at the Federal Constitutional Court," Seehofer told Der Spiegel...

    Sitting in his white-walled room on the second floor of an anonymous office block, the German politician talks from the heart. He states emotionally that his country has changed for ever; that the European Union is finished and Chancellor Angela Merkel’s days are numbered. ‘Frau Merkel, she’s not right in the head,’ adds 46-year-old Siegbert Droese, pointing his finger at his temple. ‘She tells people from all over the Islamic world to come here to paradise. The numbers are mind-boggling and could reach ten million [when the migrants bring members of their families over to join them]. ‘So many young...

    The leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party leader Nigel Farange survived an attempt on his life today. Someone allegedly attempted to rig his car to crash. The UK Daily Mail reported on the almost-crash, in which a wheel fell off his car. The accident happened on the highway, with one of Farage's Volvo tires flying off. Farange was driving towards a construction zone and had to jump over a divider to stay safe. It is not clear who attempted the attack, although Farage is constantly under death threats. He is a common target of radical left-wing causes and Islamists,...
