    LONDON, Jan 14 (Reuters) - The scandal engulfing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson over his conduct during coronavirus lockdowns has helped the opposition Labour Party to pull into a 10 point lead over the ruling Conservatives in a new opinion poll released on Friday. Johnson apologised to parliament on Wednesday and to Queen Elizabeth on Friday following a series of parties or gatherings that were held in his Downing Street residence at times when the country was under strict pandemic curbs. Pollster Savanta ComRes said a survey of 2,151 adults on Thursday and Friday put Labour up 5 points to...

    BORIS Johnson was quizzed over whether Brexit would result in an increased number of visas made available to Indian workers in hopes of securing a deal with New Delhi. Tory MP Sir Edward Leigh questioned the Prime Minister over immigration policies and possible Brexit trade deals with India. Sir Edward told Boris Johnson that working-class Brexit voters did not want more immigration from other countries outside of Europe after voting for the UK to regain control of its borders. Mr Johnson leapt to his feet with a rebuttal to explain that the Government will not relax rules to entice Indian...

    French historians have demanded the return of Napoleon III in the wake of Brexit, whose remains lie in a tomb in Hampshire. The emperor, who was the final monarch to rule France before he died in exile in 1873, was laid to rest in a church in Farnborough. But historians in France are hoping to have his remains repatriated as part of a post-Brexit trade deal.

    Ministers are keen to ease immigration restrictions in a bid to make it easier for thousands of Indian citizens to live and work in the UK as part of forthcoming trade talks. The potential offer will be under discussion when the international trade secretary, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, travels to Delhi this month, reports the Times. Relaxing immigration rules for Indian citizens is a key demand from Delhi. Trevelyan is said to have the backing of the foreign secretary, Liz Truss, who is keen to curb China’s growing influence in the region. However, they are likely to meet strong resistance from the...

    The origins of the first Russia dossier go back to 2002 when Don Berlin created Russia collusion stories involving billionaire brothers which were released to the Mainstream Media years later after the brothers became vocal supporters of Brexit. Dan Bongino shared in March 2019 that the Russia collusion scam was actually created a decade before President Trump’s campaign for the Presidency.

    France had previously said it could stop UK boats landing in its ports, but backed down and returned to the negotiating table after the UK Government threatened to start “rigorous” checks... The ongoing row with the UK is being seen by many in Europe as an attempt by Mr Macron’s administration to garner domestic support and fend off political opponents in the run up to next April’s presidential election. One senior EU diplomat said: “It is quite clear that France is trying to use this dispute for domestic political purposes.” Another EU source told the Mail most governments within the...

Dirty people responsible for all of the world’s problems. Super spreaders taking up valuable space in the hospital. But that narrative is falling apart thanks to the world’s most vaccinated countries. Let’s take Gibraltar first. Located on the...

    The nation of Gibraltar, which achieved a 99 percent vaccine compliance rate as of June 1, is now seeing an astounding spike in cases. The number of COVID cases per day have increased by an astounding 2500 percent since June 1, in the latest bit of evidence that the vaccine regime is not all it’s cracked up to be.

    The London Economic ^ | 12/22/20 | Henry Goodwin
    Gibraltar is poised to strike a deal to enter the Schengen free movement area – meaning Brits will be required to show their passports on arrival, but people coming from Spain will not. Up to 15,000 Spaniards cross the country’s land border to work on the Rock – which has a population of less than 34,000 – each day. Brexit means that, from 1 January, Madrid would have been able to create a hard border between Spain and Gibraltar – which would have drastic effects for the territory’s economy.

    Navy warships dispatched as Spain invades seas around Gibraltar Royal Navy warships have forced heavily armed Spanish ships to retreat from British waters around Gibraltar. Relations between the 30,000 residents of the British outpost and mainland Spain have become strained following what the Foreign Office described as 'a violation of British sovereignty'. The warships were dispatched after Spanish ships sent boarding parties to inspect fishing boats in British waters, despite having no authority to do so.

    Just like the 2016 Brexit campaign, Obama's intervention may well have backfired. In April 2016, just months before he was due to leave the White House, then-U.S. President Barack Obama travelled to London, England to engage in a far shadier attempt at “foreign intervention” in another country’s election process than Donald Trump was ever party to. Arriving in London, he told an audience that Britain would find herself “at the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the United States if the public insisted on voting to leave the European Union. At that point in the campaign, the...

    The UK government always intended to “ditch” the Northern Ireland protocol, Boris Johnson’s former adviser Dominic Cummings has claimed. In a string of tweets, Cummings said the flawed Brexit deal had been a way to get out of the electoral doldrums and “whack [Jeremy] Corbyn”, and “of course” the government should be allowed to “sometimes break deals… like every other state does”. His remarks have caused alarm in Dublin, where the former taoiseach Leo Varadkar, who negotiated the Northern Ireland protocol with Johnson at a meeting in Wirral in October 2019, said that, if true, they showed the government could...
  • Factories across Britain could be shut down for Christmas as gas bills soar

    More industry leaders have warned that factories could close this winter as soaring energy costs eat into profitability. They said the production of items and materials ranging from toys, clothes, chocolate, paper, glass, lime, cement, ceramics and chemicals is on the line. A worst-case scenario could see steel plants close for good. The business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng met with representatives of energy-intensive trades who said electricity costs were up five times on normal levels. Taking aim afterwards, UK Steel’s Gareth Stace said the government has done ‘nothing’ to alleviate the crisis. By contrast, he claimed several European governments were investing...

    LONDON (Reuters) -The British steel industry's lobby group warned on Monday of an impending crisis due to soaring wholesale energy prices which could force plants into expensive shutdowns, stoke emissions and sow chaos through supply chains. A shortage of natural gas in Europe had sent prices for electricity and gas soaring, triggering sharp rises in the prices paid by people heating their homes or for major heavy industrial plants smelting steel. "These extraordinary electricity prices are leading to smaller or wiped-out profits and thus to less reinvestment," UK Steel, which lobbies on behalf of the British steel industry, said in...

    The boss of Intel says the US chipmaker is no longer considering building a factory in the UK because of Brexit. Pat Gelsinger told the BBC that before the UK left the EU, the country "would have been a site that we would have considered". But he added: "Post-Brexit... we're looking at EU countries and getting support from the EU". Intel wants to boost its output amid a global chip shortage that has hit the supply of cars and other goods. The firm - which is one of the world's largest makers of semiconductors - says the crisis has shown...

    The Germans could scarcely conceal their delight. According to Olaf Scholz, the socialist poised to succeed Angela Merkel as Chancellor of Germany, we can blame the shortage of lorry drivers, our half-empty supermarkets and closed petrol stations squarely at the feet of Brexit. Some might describe this as 'schadenfreude' – taking pleasure in the misfortune of others. It is, of course, a German word. But Herr Scholz's assessment is shared by a troubling number of people in Britain. People who should know better. Wherever we look, captains of industry are demanding we reopen our gates to the cheap foreign labour...
