    A hilarious video of the hapless Theresa May being ridiculed in Parliment over her Brexit antics. Watch the Prime Minister's face because the expression she makes under well-earned ridicule is worthy of a Shakespeare play.

    At a Glance: May 2018 was the hottest in 124 years of May records across the Lower 48. Eight states broke warmth records and no state was colder than average. Two states had their wettest Mays.

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...

    LONDON — British Prime Minister Theresa May has dismissed concerns about Donald Trump’s mental fitness, saying the U.S. president acts in what he sees as the best interests of his country. 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...

    Prime Minister Theresa May has asked US President Trump to help broker a deal in a bitter aerospace trade dispute which could financially devastate one of Northern Ireland's biggest employers. Canadian aerospace giant Bombardier, which employs around 4,500 people in Belfast and accounts for 10% of the region's manufacturing exports, is facing significant costs in a spat with US aeronautics powerhouse Boeing. The dispute centres over Boeing's allegations that Bombardier received subsidies allowing it to sell its CSeries planes at below-market prices. The US Department of Commerce is expected to announce a decision on whether to impose duties against Bombardier...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May's office said on Sunday there had been no change to plans for U.S. President Donald Trump's to come to Britain on a state visit, after the Guardian newspaper reported the trip had been postponed. The paper, citing an unidentified adviser at May's Downing Street office who was in the room at the time, reported Trump had told May by telephone in recent weeks that he did not want to come if there were likely to be large-scale protests. "We aren’t going to comment on speculation about the contents of private phone conversations," a...

    British Prime Minister Theresa May gave a stern and inspirational response to the latest Islamic terror attack in London this weekend, declaring at one point that “enough is enough.” When I wrote about it yesterday I was pondering precisely how far she would be willing to go in pursuit of those who would destroy the west, particularly when she mentioned how the Islamic fighters have too much freedom on the internet and in their own communities. It’s not that I imagine her as being afraid of the jihadists… she doesn’t seem to be cowed at all. Rather, it’s her own...

    PRIME Minister Theresa May is facing pressure to postpone the UK election in the wake of the London terror attack. May will chair a meeting of the government’s Cobra emergency committee later on Sunday in response to the tragedy. Three terrorists have been shot dead after killing seven people and more than 48 were injured when three suspects ploughed a vehicle into pedestrians on London Bridge before attacking others in nearby tourist hotspot Borough Market. May also suspended election campaigning on Sunday. “The Conservative Party will not be campaigning nationally today. We will review as the day goes on and...

    President Trump on Saturday offered the United Kingdom “full support” during a phone call with Prime Minister Theresa May following two attacks in London. “The President offered his condolences for the brutal terror attacks on June 3 in central London,” the White House said late Saturday. “He praised the heroic response of police and other first responders and offered the full support of the United States Government in investigating and bringing those responsible for these heinous acts to justice.” Officials originally reported three separate incidents, including a van that ran down pedestrians on London Bridge and an incident at Borough...

    British Prime Minister Theresa May's gamble on a June 8 snap election was thrust into doubt after a Survation poll showed her Conservative Party's lead had dropped to a new low of just one percentage point. While British pollsters all predict May will win the most seats in Thursday's election, they have given an array of different numbers for how big her win will be, ranging from a landslide victory to a much more slender win without a majority. Some of the polls indicate the election could be on a knife edge that would throw Britain into political deadlock just...
