    Theresa May has defended Donald Trump’s approach to last week’s Nato summit, claiming it made all the difference in encouraging European allies to “step up” their defence spending. The US president left the Brussels talks in disarray after setting a January deadline for other alliance members to increase defence spending and hinting that the US may quit Nato if they failed to do so. For the second year in a row, Trump caused turmoil at a Nato summit, criticising the Germans, turning up late for a meeting, ignoring the issues on the table and securing an emergency discussion on spending....
  • Trump supporters turn out in London a day after protests

    LONDON – Thousands of Trump supporters and right-wing activists took to the nation’s capital on Saturday — a day after anti-Trump protesters had dominated the city. While the displays of right-wing support were nowhere near as large as the enormous anti-Trump march that demanded the international media’s attention the day before, it was still a significant show of support for Trump from those eager to counter the claim that Trump had been unanimously rejected by Britons. The day started with a small pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Embassy, featuring numerous red “MAGA” hats and U.S. and U.K. flags -- as...
  • [2016] Would Margaret Thatcher have backed Brexit?

    Charles Powell, her most important private secretary, now believes that she would have negotiated a deal quite like David Cameron’s latest, and urged a Remain vote. Norman Tebbit, one of her most senior and like-minded ministers, says the opposite. I shall not break my rule by agreeing or disagreeing with either. But the story of Mrs Thatcher and Europe does reveal something interesting. The whole time she was in office, she never said that Britain should leave. Once she had left office, she said privately – to me and several others – that she thought we should.

    Britain’s long-running crisis-cum-soap-opera over Brexit may be reaching its denouement today at Chequers, the prime minister’s country house, where the full cabinet is locked in a final debate on whether or not to accept Theresa May’s proposed terms for leaving the European Union. And “locked in” is the appropriate phrase. Ministers have had to surrender their cell phones on arrival; they have been told to expect the meeting to continue until 10.00 p.m.; and a Downing Street flack briefed the media that any minister who resigns will lose his official car straight away and have to walk three-quarters of a...
  • UK should cancel Donald Trump visit, says Jeremy Corbyn

    Theresa May has “ample reasons” to cancel Donald Trump’s visit to the UK next month, Jeremy Corbyn has said. The Labour leader said the escalating trade dispute between US and the EU, as well as the US treatment of child migrant detainees separated from their parents, were reasons enough to rescind the invitation to the US president. His comments came as Trump threatened to impose tariffs on European cars after Brussels confirmed it would introduce retaliatory levies on American products including bourbon whiskey, Levi’s jeans and Harley-Davidson motorbikes as a response to the US steel and aluminium tariffs. “Donald Trump...

    Donald Trump will meet the Queen when he visits Britain next month, the US ambassador to the UK has told Sky News. The president is due in Britain for a working visit on Friday 13 July - his first to the country since being elected in 2016. It is not a state visit with all the pomp and ceremony that comes with that, so the pair would not necessarily need to meet. But ambassador Robert Wood Johnson said that while plans have not yet been finalised, they will involve the president meeting Her Majesty. "Meeting Her Majesty is the most...

    An Islamic State (ISIS) fanatic who plotted to kill British Prime Minister Theresa May in a suicide attack planned to “take her head off”, a court heard Tuesday, according to the Press Association. Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, allegedly wanted to make “big news” by storming 10 Downing Street with explosives and a knife as May talked to the press outside. He was encouraged by an uncle who joined ISIS in Syria and was killed in a drone strike, the Old Bailey heard. Rahman’s intentions were foiled after he revealed his plans to MI5 agents, posing as ISIS operatives in Telegram...

The average temperature for the Lower 48 states last month was 65.41 degrees Fahrenheit, 5.21 degrees Fahrenheit above the 1901-2000 average, according to the state of the climate report released...

    British Prime Minister Theresa May has finally weighed in on the Alfie Evans case, offering condolences to the family but ultimately siding with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. During a visit to Brooklands Primary School in Sale, Greater Manchester on Monday, May received a question as to whether she would support Alfie’s Law, legislation proposed by British Member of European Parliament Steven Woolfe to restore parental rights over medical decisions in similar cases. Alfie died Saturday at Alder Hey, which had removed his ventilator five days earlier in defiance of his parents’ wishes. Alfie’s doctors said he had an undiagnosed and...

    Theresa May is to announce as soon as Monday what sanctions her government will impose on Russia after a former spy was poisoned in Salisbury, it is reported. Calls have been growing for Britain to freeze the assets of UK-based oligarchs named by the US as being close to President Vladimir Putin. Mrs May previously branded an attempt to kill a Russian double agent with a nerve agent an 'appalling and reckless crime', while Conservative MPs have called for tough measures against the Kremlin. The Prime Minister said she would do 'what is right' if it was proven the Russian...

A new book by journalist Michael Wolff quotes prominent Trump advisers as questioning the president’s competence. Asked in an interview whether she thought concerns about Trump’s mental state were serious, May said: “No.”

    Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is pressing his long-held view that voters should be given a chance to re-think Brexit once plans for Britain’s departure from the European Union are clear. Blair said Thursday that the Labour Party he led for 13 years should be actively challenging Brexit rather than going along with plans laid out by Prime Minister Theresa May and her Conservative Party allies. May’s government is negotiating exit plans and the outlines of a new trade relationship with the EU with an eye toward departing the bloc by a March 2019 deadline. Blair and other opponents...

    US diplomats have dropped plans for Donald Trump to conduct a visit to Britain in January amid a war of words between the two countries’ leaders. Mr Trump, the US president, had been pencilled in for a ‘working visit’ in the first month of 2018 to formally open America’s new London embassy.

    London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Thursday urged the British government to cancel any official state visit by U.S. President Donald Trump, after Trump retweeted a series of videos posted by the leader of an extremist British political group. The videos, which sought to portray Muslims as violent and dangerous, were originally posted to Twitter by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of the Britain First group which demands that Muslims be removed from Britain. In a statement on Thursday quoted by Politico, Khan accused Trump of promoting a “vile, extremist group that exists solely to sow division and hatred.” “After this latest...

    The first time Donald Trump met Angela Merkel, pictures of their awkward non-handshake in the Oval Office went around the world — and the months that followed did little to break the ice. But if the 63-year-old chancellor sails her way — as widely predicted — to a fourth term in Sunday’s legislative elections, the leaders of the United States and Germany will have to figure out a way to work together in the long term. Pretty much everything about “Mutti,” as Europe’s most influential leader is known at home, sets her apart from the 71-year-old occupant of the White...

    The teenager arrested on suspicion of planting a bomb on the Tube is reportedly an Iraqi orphan who moved over to the UK as a refugee three years ago, a community leader said today. The 18-year-old was detained by police on Saturday morning in connection with the terror attack, which saw 30 people injured when a home-made bomb was detonated on a packed carriage. Following the arrest, police raided a house in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey - home to foster care couple Penelope and Ronald Jones who have reportedly taken in refugee children in the past. Leader of Spelthorne Borough Council Ian...
