Brexit tension leads U.K. to seek deeper ties with Canada

Brexit has hit another roadblock as the European Union (EU) and U.K. attempt to work out exactly what their future relationship will look like. Both sides are trying to come up with an outline of a post-Brexit relationship in time for a leaders’ summit set for Oct. 17-18 in order to stay on track for the March 29, 2019 leave date — exactly two years after Prime Minister Theresa May triggered the departure process.

Because of the hurdles involved — such as coming up with a new trade agreement and new arrangements for Ireland — Susan le Jeune d’Allegeershecque, the U.K.’s high commissioner to Canada, said now is the time to focus on Canada.

British army on standby in case of no-deal Brexit

The British government is in full on prepper mode right now, gearing up for the possibilities and problems that could come about as a result of a no-deal Brexit. The army is on standby to ensure peace and stability as well as to provide an infrastructure for the delivery of crucial supplies such as food, medicine, and fuel, especially in areas which could be the most prone to shortages. In order to provide for this scenario, the British government is also stockpiling necessary supplies.

The EU is terrified that Britain will make a success of Brexit

Now that the EU white paper is out we can see that terms like vassal state, colony and homage were well chosen and that Donald Trump’s doubts are valid. The commitment to a common rule book that includes a pledge to enforce state-aid rules is effectively promising not to try too hard to be economically successful. And yet state aid has hardly been mentioned in the debate.

Nigel Farage: “I think Theresa May is the worst prime minister we’ve had in my entire lifetime.”

Mr. Farage is hardly alone in his opinion. The 17.4 million (and growing, as a new poll shows a 15% increase in those wanting Brexit) who voted to LEAVE the EU have been furious in recent days over her deal to sign us up for the EU, just with limited power and more regulation, but pretending it is still Brexit.

Et tu Boris? Johnson QUITS in devastating blow for May

Theresa May is in a desperate battle for her political life today after Boris Johnson dramatically quit over her ‘third way’ Brexit plan.

The Foreign Secretary resigned just minutes before the PM took to her feet the Commons to give a statement to MPs about the compromise package she forced through the Cabinet on Friday night.

Mrs May tried to put a brave face on the shattering blow this afternoon, paying tribute to Mr Johnson’s commitment to ‘Global Britain’. She mounted an impassioned defence of her blueprint, saying it was the ‘Brexit in our national interest’.

What a sh@tshow
