    Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said mistakes were made on all sides in the handling of Brexit, but vowed to be “flexible and reasonable” when attempting to solve issues with the Northern Ireland Protocol. He conceded that the post-Brexit Northern Ireland Protocol is “too strict” and said he understands unionist concerns that the treaty has made them feel less British. Mr. Varadkar, who became Taoiseach for a second time in December, has become deeply unpopular within some sections of unionism and loyalism who claim he was an instrumental figure in the creation of the contentious protocol. His name and image have...

    Rishi Sunak’s Conservative Party has faced a raw deal as Tory voters leave the party, while a poll has revealed they may be headed elsewhere. A YouGov poll on voting intention showed a spike in Reform UK’s support now at nine points - up by four. This follows the Tories dropping three points to 22 per cent and Labour dropping one point to 47 per cent, a change apparently in favour of Reform UK. The Liberal Democrats have seen no change, with nine per cent of the vote. The poll, from November 29 to 30, also saw Keir Starmer’s lead...
  • NATO ally Belgium's green party coalition uses Brexit rules to BLOCK export of critical nuclear arms technology to Britain

    NATO allies the UK and Belgium are at loggerheads as Belgium's green party coalition is using Brexit rules to block the export of critical nuclear arms technology to the UK. The technology at the centre of the row plays a vital role in the maintenance of the UK's nuclear deterrent, with Belgium insisting the UK needs an 'export licence' to obtain it post-Brexit. However, though both nations are NATO allies, Belgium's deputy prime minister Georges Gilkinet, member of the green coalition-member Ecolo party has blocked the licence due to 'opposition to nuclear weapons and the arms industry,' ...

    Nigel Farage said the Conservative Party deserves to be "wiped out" after net migration to the UK hit a new record high of 504,000. The number for the 12 months to June this year was revealed by the Office for National Statistics this morning and it is 170,000 more than the previous post-war record of 331,000 in 2015. Mr Farage, the former leader of the Brexit Party, said: "These net migration figures are hard to take in. 500,000 is nearly double the previous record. The Tories deserve to be wiped out." The ONS said the 504,000 figure was the result...

    Net migration into Britain is 170,000 higher than the country's previous annual record Prominent conservatives have expressed their outrage at Britain's governing Conservative party that has overseen a record-high level of net migration at a staggering 504,000 in the year to June. Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed the total numbe of long-term arrivals into the U.K. for the reporting period was 1.1 million, with 560,000 emigrating out of the country long term... Prominent conservatives have been quick to leap on the figures as an example of a supposedly-conservative government losing control of its borders. "These net...

    Be our guest—at the unemployment bureau. Restaurants are failing faster in the United Kingdom than they did during the economically devastating COVID-19 pandemic, leading experts to predict over a third of UK “hospitality businesses” will close by 2023. I guess inflation wasn’t transitory there either. The Guardian blamed a “‘toxic mix’ of surging energy costs, staff shortages and falling bookings” for the crisis, as restaurant closures rose 60% this past year. And it’s not just restaurants affected, according to Steve Bannon, who posted on GETTR that “50% of all British small business said they would in all likelihood close shop...

    In his first phone call with newly appointed UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, President Joe Biden appears to have once again pushed the UK to sell out on Brexit. U.S. President Joe Biden appears to have once again pushed for the UK to bow to the European Union on the core Brexit issue of Northern Ireland in his first phone call with the country’s new Prime Minister. Biden’s White House had previously put significant pressure on now-former PM Liz Truss on the issue, with American authorities threatening to rip up any prospect of a UK-U.S. trade deal should Westminster not...

    London (AFP) – British wildlife groups and campaigners have hit out at government's plans to ditch legislation covering pesticide use, as part of a drive to remove EU laws after Brexit. The government in London said it will scratch 570 environmental laws from the statute book, after they were rolled over from Britain's time in the European Union. On Wednesday, popular wildlife television presenter Steve Backshall joined a chorus of opposition, warning that overturning laws on pesticides could have a deadly effect on bee populations and river pollution. In recent times increasing pesticide use has caused localised extinctions of bee...

It is globalism against populism. And you may loath populism, but I tell you a funny thing, it’s becoming very popular.” Nigel Farage As of January 31, 2020, Great Britain is no longer part of the European Union (EU). Britain’s success in parting ways with the EU, what is commonly called Brexit, short for British Exit from the EU, is the culmination of nearly 30 years of work by Britons...

    ... Should Truss emerge victorious in a party vote that will be announced on Monday, she will have a chance to flesh out the vision of a Global Britain that Johnson unveiled after the country left the European Union two years ago. Based on her record as foreign secretary, diplomats and analysts in London and Washington said, relations could get bumpier with the US and, even more so, with Europe. Tensions between London and Brussels have already flared over legislation introduced by Truss that would upend the post-Brexit trade arrangements in Northern Ireland. She has vowed to push the new...

    Boris Johnson will pave the way for the return of pounds and ounces in British shops this week, in a "common sense" move heralded by Tory MPs as taking advantage of freedoms delivered by Brexit. On Friday, the Government will publish proposals to repeal EU-derived law requiring metric units to be used for all trade, with only limited exceptions. At the same time, ministers will issue guidance to firms on restoring the use of the crown symbol on pint glasses, after it was replaced by the CE marking to help the UK conform with EU rules. A government source said:...

    Sinn Féin will be the largest party in the Northern Ireland Assembly for the first time, pushing the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) into second place. Sinn Féin has 27 seats, compared to the DUP's 25. The result means Michelle O'Neill will be entitled to become first minister - unprecedented for a nationalist. Earlier, Ms O'Neill said it had been an election of "real change" and a "defining moment for our politics and for our people". "Today ushers in a new era which I believe presents us all with an opportunity to reimagine relationships in this society on the basis of...

    The US has agreed to ease Trump-era tariffs on UK steel and aluminium shipments, resolving an issue that had strained relations between the allies. The move follows earlier deals with the European Union and Japan over the controversial taxes, which were imposed by former President Donald Trump in 2018 in the name of national security. In exchange, the UK will suspend extra taxes it had put on US products such as bourbon and Levi's jeans.

    "You know, something happened last year when America unilaterally withdrew from Afghanistan without consulting its allies – far from America is ‘back,’" Farage said. "The big question that we’re asking is, has America retreated? And I don’t think that question has been answered." Farage, noting that Ukraine is not a member of NATO, questioned whether NATO would honor "what it stood for since the late 1940s or not?" "A lot of Americans say, hey, you know what, we bailed out Europe in World War I; we bailed out Europe in World War II; we kind of don’t want to do...

    United Kingdom will reportedly seek to strike a swath of trade agreements 'with individual American states' in order to boost commerce while the Biden administration drags its feet on a post-Brexit deal between the two countries. During his first White House meeting with President Biden, Prime Minister Boris Johnson was told that the Democrat administration would not commit to signing a post-Brexit trade deal with Britain before the 2024 election....Biden reportedly told Johson that he had “a lot of fish to fry” and therefore a trade deal was not a top priority. In stark contrast to Trump, Biden has consistently...
