  • Britain, U.S. deny that Trump state visit delayed

    06/12/2017 9:17:31 PM PDT · by blueplum · 5 replies ^ | 11 June 2017 3:42pm ET
    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...

    A grand total of 84.2% of General Election voters stumped for a party that has promised to take Britain out of the European Union. It’s proof, if proof were needed, that an overwhelming majority of people just want us to get on with Brexit.

    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...
  • Theresa May faces pressure to postpone UK election

    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...
  • May's election gamble in doubt as poll lead falls to one point

    Reuters ^ | 6/3/2017
    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...

    The Express ^ | May 31, 2017 | Vincent Wood
    The calamitous news for Theresa May comes from the first seat by seat projection for the campaign, and suggests the Conservatives will fall 16 seats short of an overall majority. The polling method has taken into account an unusual technique using a complex computer model. The YouGov prediction would leave Theresa May with 310 MPs – 20 fewer than at the time of dissolution of the last Parliament – while Labour are set to surge from 229 to 257 MPs on June 8 election, a gain of 28 seats in the Commons. The shocking scenario could leave Theresa May’s hand...

    The UK's terror threat level has been raised from severe to critical, meaning an attack is considered imminent. Prime Minister Theresa May announced the decision from Downing Street. The move means that military personnel could be deployed to support armed police officers. "It is a possibility that we cannot ignore that there a wider group of individuals linked to this attack," Mrs May said. She said that the threat level was under constant review. "The change in the threat level means there will be additional support available to the police as they work to keep us safe," she said.

    Trump Declared May 1 “Loyalty Day,” But You Shouldn’t Freak Out About It By Morgan Brinlee 19 hours ago President Donald Trump asked Americans to reaffirm their allegiance to the United States' founding principals in a proclamation that caused a number of people on social media to flip out. In his proclamation, Trump called on Americans to "observe this day with appropriate ceremonies," including reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and asked government officials to display the American flag on all government buildings and grounds. But while Trump's request may sound a bit Orwellian, the truth is there's no reason to...

    The London Telegraph ^ | April 26, 2017 | Bethan Holt, Digital fashion editor
    The name Anna Wintour conjures an image of the archetypal editrix, poised on the front row, bob perfectly intact, Prada‑clad, with bug‑eyed sunglasses shielding any flicker of emotion. Beneath the glossy veneer, though, Wintour – who has been editor-in-chief of American Vogue for 29 years – is, almost unarguably, the most powerful person in fashion. In fact, in the latest issue of The Business of Fashion’s print magazine, she is hailed as “President Wintour”. In a new interview with the publication – a must-read for fashion industry insiders – Wintour has spoken candidly for the first time about Trump, Theresa...

    There was a major announcement this week and we were given a heads up about it in advance. It was to happen at 11.15am on Tuesday, an announcement by Theresa May. I was kind of expecting her to reveal David Icke was right all along, then shed her human suit and order us to bow down and welcome our lizard alien overlords. Unfortunately, it wasn’t that exciting or dramatic. After recently stating categorically she would never call a snap election, last week Theresa, you guessed it folks, announced a snap election in June. I know it’s hard to imagine a...

    British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday insisted that she would "never" allow Gibraltar to slip from British control against the wishes of Gibraltarians as the issue took centre-stage in early Brexit wranglings. May told Chief Minister of Gibraltar Fabian Picardo that "we will never enter into arrangements under which the people of Gibraltar would pass under the sovereignty of another state against their freely and democratically expressed wishes." Her comments came as Spain pledged it would not close its border post-Brexit with the 6.7-square-kilometre (2.6-square-mile) British overseas territory on the southern tip of Spain.

    History was made today as the Article 50 letter confirming Britain's divorce from the EU was finally delivered - with Theresa May pledging to create a 'brighter future' outside the club. The UK's envoy Sir Tim Barrow handed the formal notification to European Council president Donald Tusk in Brussels. As the point of no return was reached, the Prime Minister told the House of Commons that she was 'giving effect to the democratic will of the UK people'.

    Theresa May made a highly unusual appearance at the House of Lords today as peers began their two-day debate on the Brexit bill. The prime minister sat close to the throne as Lords leader Baroness Evans said the Government had a ‘strong mandate’ from the people and elected MPs to trigger Article 50. ‘This Bill is not the place to try and shape the terms of our exit, restrict the Government’s hand before in enters into complex negotiations or attempt to re-run the referendum,’ she added. The European Union (notification of Withdrawal) Bill has passed major hurdles in the House...

    Remainers had hoped it would be the night when they finally made a dent in Theresa May’s Brexit plans as they put forward a bewildering array of new clauses and amendments to the Article 50 bill. Nine proposals in all, ranging from the rights of EU migrants to the opinions of the Gibraltar Government, were put to the vote, and one by one all nine proposals were thrown out by MPs. It was a flawless night for Theresa May, as the EU (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill was passed by 494 votes to 122 in its original, unamended form.

    The feds are considering a hefty child pornography charge against disgraced ex-pol Anthony Weiner that could send him to prison for at least 15 years, law enforcement sources told The Post on Tuesday. Weiner has been under investigation since a report last year revealed that he had exchanged lewd messages with an underage girl in North Carolina. His lawyers have been meeting with Manhattan federal prosecutors in a bid to minimize his potential punishment, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. The horndog Democrat — who, after being forced to resign his House seat in a sexting scandal, derailed a 2013...
