He said he had experienced mild symptoms over the past 24 hours, including a temperature and cough, but would continue to lead the government. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he had also tested positive while England's Chief Medical Officer, Prof Chris Whitty, has shown symptoms.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told cafes, pubs, restaurants, gyms and cinemas across the country to close and stay shut indefinitely to help slow the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. "We are telling cafes, bars and restaurants to close tonight as soon as they reasonably can and not to open tomorrow," Mr Johnson told reporters in Downing Street. "I do accept that what we're doing is extraordinary. We're taking away the ancient, inalienable right of free-born people of the United Kingdom to go to the pub, and I can understand how people feel about that. "Though to be clear,...
  • Boris Johnson slams ‘America- bashers’ for spreading 'mumbo-jumbo' fears about US food standards

    02/03/2020 7:47:49 AM PST · by sinsofsolarempirefan · 44 replies
    Boris Johnson today slammed 'mumbo-jumbo' fears about US food standards and NHS interference - as he insisted Britain will be the superhero of free trade. The PM shrugged off 'hysteria' over issues like chlorinated chicken, joking that he thought Americans looked 'pretty well nourished'. He said Britain's approach would be based on 'science', although he stressed that other countries will have to accept that the UK will not slash standards or compromise animal welfare. The comments came as Mr Johnson delivered a keynote speech pledging to make the country a beacon for free trade now it has left the EU.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has done something his predecessor failed to do three times - he got his Brexit bill approved. The members of Parliament have voted 358 to 234 in favor of his Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which sets a Brexit date for January 31. The second reading of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill has passed - which means we are one step closer to getting Brexit done ????— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) December 20, 2019 Even six Labour MPs voted in favor of the legislation, as noted by the BBC.

    They voted 358 to 234 - a majority of 124 - in favour of the EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill, which now goes on to further scrutiny in Parliament. The bill would also ban an extension of the transition period - during which the UK is out of the EU but follows many of its rules - past 2020. The PM said the country was now "one step closer to getting Brexit done".

    As much as Britain’s election Thursday was a victory to Boris Johnson, the vote also dealt a humiliating defeat to Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. Not since 1935 has a Labour candidate fallen so flat with voters, and the reasons are a warning to America’s Democrats. The collapse of Labour’s working-class vote is the main explanation for Mr. Johnson’s win, and the main story of the election. Labour’s “red wall” of districts across the north of England collapsed, with the Tories winning seats so staunchly Labour that the Tories barely campaigned. Some of these areas have voted Labour since before...

    Like the Democrats when Hillary ran, Remainers enlisted the very vocal support of Hollywood luvvies to fight their cause. Hollywood actors Hugh Grant and Steve Coogan led the way, backed up by the likes of grime artist Stormzy and pop singer Lily Allen. Grant, who seemed to forget that playing a fictitious Prime Minister in Love Actually is not a qualification to be a real politician, spent weeks marching around ordering people not to vote for Johnson or the Conservatives because they had the audacity to want to act on the democratic will of the people. Hugh Grant looks glum...

    Boris Johnson’s dominant election victory in the U.K. national election this week is great news for the U.S., yet terrible news for the Democratic Party. Defying the pundits, Johnson romped to a majority government in the biggest conservative victory since Lady Thatcher in the 1980s. The win was just the latest for the silent majority that wants good governance in contrast to the bellicose activists who desire socialism.

    The founders of Fusion GPS, the Democrat-backed consulting firm behind the famously discredited Christopher Steele dossier at the heart of the Russia hoax, are blaming Russia for the liberal Labour Party’s loss in the U.K. elections Thursday. Seriously. Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch penned an editorial published in the The Guardian, a British newspaper, asserting Russia was behind the triumphant re-election of Brexit-supporting conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Simpson and Fritsch are now urging the British government to launch an investigation into Russian interference in its elections mirroring the size and scale of the U.S. Robert Mueller probe, a two-year...

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain spoke with President Trump by phone on Tuesday, and to judge by the dueling summaries of the call provided by the White House and 10 Downing Street, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Trump were involved in two completely different conversations.....Such divergent accounts of a leader-to-leader call are not unheard-of, but the timing of this one, on the eve of Britain’s general election campaign, was telling. It shows just how much of a liability Mr. Trump has become for Mr. Johnson. Once, the prime minister talked up the benefits of having a close friend in the...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union agreed on Monday to delay Brexit until Jan.31, said the bloc’s chairman, Donald Tusk. “The EU27 has agreed that it will accept the UK’s request for a Brexit flextension until 31 January 2020,” Tusk said of the idea of a “flexible extension”, which means Britain could go earlier if its fractious parliament ratifies the divorce bill. The bloc now awaits an approval from London. Once that is in, a 24-hour countdown will start when member states can still object or else the decision will have been taken. “This will allow for the decision to...

MPs opted to push his deal through to the next stage of the House of Commons by 329 - 299 this evening in a huge victory for the PM after months of negotiations with Brussels and with his own backbenchers.

    LONDON—British lawmakers voted Saturday to postpone a decisive Brexit vote, likely forcing Prime Minister Boris Johnson to request a further delay of the U.K.’s departure from the European Union. Parliament said it needed more time to review a deal Mr. Johnson concluded this week with European leaders that sets out citizens’ rights, a financial settlement with the EU and a special arrangement for Northern Ireland that would require customs checks on goods arriving there from elsewhere in the U.K. The move was backed by opposition lawmakers, along with some who have recently left or been expelled from the ruling Conservative...

    Barrons (Dow Jones) ^ | October 18, 2019 | Jack Hough
    Much of the discussion has seemed like an egg-centered debate: soft or hard, but it won't be over easy. A soft Brexit means staying closely aligned with the EU on trade, and is favored by Britons who oppose leaving. Hard means a clean break, and that could cost an estimated 9% of GDP cumulatively, along with 450,000 jobs. Pro tip: If a Brexit discussion gets too detailed, scare the other party off by insisting that a hard exit would "force the BOE back to the ZLB with more QE." Just in case your bluff is called, that's Bank of England,...

    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 –...

    To be fair, blame the Germans has proven to be a solid political strategy regarding European affairs for quite a while, and not for no reason. It’s nearly as popular in the UK, historically speaking, as blame the French. And Leo Varadkar might be happy that Boris Johnson isn’t blaming Ireland for the no-deal Brexit everyone knows is coming.But even as much as everyone likes to blame the Germans, this looks like a stretch: An anonymous official in Boris Johnson’s office told broadcast reporters on Tuesday that negotiations with European leaders over Brexit were “essentially impossible” after the British...
