    Johnson, who led the main Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, resigned as foreign minister on Monday over May’s strategy which he said was killing the “Brexit dream” with self-doubt. “Theresa May has got a lot of great qualities – I am not sure if it is the right leader at the right time,” Bannon, Trump’s former strategist and a key player in his 2016 election campaign, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying. May’s government was rattled by the departures of Johnson and her chief Brexit negotiator David Davis just days after she appeared to have gained the...

    "Brexit Secretary David Davis resigned from Theresa May's government late on Sunday night, followed swiftly by junior ministers Steve Baker and Suella Braverman. The Monmouth MP, who collaborated with the Leave.EU-backed Grassroots Out campaign as well as the establishment Vote Leave outfit during the EU referendum, made frequent threats to resign during his time as leader of the newly-created Department for Exiting the European Union, reportedly due to persistent efforts by the Remain-supporting Prime Minister and her main adviser, Soviet-sympathizing bureaucrat Olly Robbins, to undermine his negotiations with Brussels."

    The United Kingdom will agree to follow all European Union rules after Brexit and keep the nation’s borders open for the duration of the transition period to 2022, with further bad news for fisheries and communities in Northern Ireland as a new agreement was reached in Brussels Monday.

    The Tory revolt over Europe took a dramatic turn last night after senior Conservative David Davis called on the Government to open talks with Brussels on quitting the EU. Former Tory chairman Mr. Davis tore into David Cameron, accusing him of making a mess of his pledge to win back powers from the EU. “Scaremongers” who said Britain would collapse if it decided to go it alone were talking nonsense, said Mr Davis. Quitting the EU would be like a “revolution” and would boost UK jobs, wages, world power, arts and prestige, he added. Significantly, his intervention comes days after...

    The re-election campaign of incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. David Davis will today begin airing a TV ad that attempts to counter GOP challenger Phil Roe’s ad campaign accusing Davis of selling out to “Big Oil.” Davis’ ad says Roe, Johnson City’s mayor, is “deceiving voters” about Davis’ record and insists Davis hasn’t pocketed money from oil interests. The Davis ad also says the incumbent is “fighting to cut gas prices for our families with his ‘No More Excuses Energy Act.’” The “No More Excuses” legislation, which calls for offshore drilling and other practices to develop more American energy, was introduced...

    There are some issues that are so explosive they are only capable of being resolved if they are handled coolly and analytically. These are the unexploded bombs of modern politics and 10 days ago Jack Straw detonated one of them with his comments on the use of the veil by Muslim women. The shock waves have reverberated around Britain, loudest in the Muslim communities. Which is not to say Jack Straw was wrong. He was not. His comments were perfectly proper and he highlighted an issue that is both important and difficult: the question of the very unity of our...

    Multicultural Britain is not working, says Tory chief By George Jones, Political Editor (Filed: 03/08/2005) Muslims must start integrating into mainstream British society, says David Davis, the shadow home secretary and front-runner to take over the Conservative leadership. Writing in The Daily Telegraph today, Mr Davis signalled a significant shift away from the policy of multi-culturalism, which allows people of different faiths and cultures to settle without expecting them to integrate. David Davis: ‘Muslims in turn have obligations not simply to condemn terror, but to confront it’ "Often, the authorities have seemed more concerned with encouraging distinctive identities rather than...
