Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has accused Theresa May of 'dancing to the EU's tune' over Brexit negotiations.
The week ahead promises to be the biggest yet in Brexit politics. Following Theresa May’s rollercoaster few days last week, the prime minister will be hoping for a smooth run-up to the European Council, where leaders will be expected to agree formally to kick off the next phase of Brexit negotiations – but the fudge of last week means that all eyes need to be on Westminster for the most important stage in parliament’s ability to scrutinise Brexit. Firstly, 18 months after the referendum, there is no plan for what Brexit will look like.
No matter what form of words has been agreed to enable talks to move on, I show below why, when push comes to shove, we are likely to end up with some kind of hard(ish) border in Ireland. In the previous game, I characterised the two ‘players’ as the UK and the EU. Now let’s forget the EU for a second and imagine that the two players are the UK and the Republic of Ireland. For the UK this means that the government would accept the DUP’s position that there must be no regulatory divergence between Northern Ireland and the UK with the result that there must be some kind of hard(ish) border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Britain and the EU agree a deal on Friday for no hard border for Northern Ireland and rights for citizens but attention now turns to what happens next for Brexit.
David Davis told the Brexit Committee that no impact assessments have been carried out on the effect of leaving the EU on the UK economy.
How to maintain a soft Irish border had emerged as the key sticking point to getting agreement from the EU to move on to phase two in negotiations.
Having travelled around Europe in the later 80s and decided to make my home in the UK, I steeped myself in every aspect of this country and its culture - not as a confidence trick nor to compensate for something, but because this is what I felt would give me the best chance of happiness and contribute to my chosen home’s prosperity. The popular culture my peers had grown up with, the English language, UK politics, history, cultural eccentricities - I absorbed it all like a sponge. Indeed, the length of time I have been here is often used against me as an argument, both by ardent Brexiters - 'If you’ve been here all this time, why didn’t you become a British citizen?’ - and well-meaning Remainers - 'After all this time, it should be very easy for you to apply’.
David Davis is accused of submitting an edited version of the impact of Brexit to MPs.
Animal lovers were concerned that Brexit would weaken welfare rules but Environment Secretary Michael Gove has now sought to assuage those fears.
This seems to be the case with the chancellor of the exchequer’s autumn Budget statement. “This Budget is about much more than Brexit”, said Philip Hammond in his opening remarks. The Budget may deal with a multitude of future issues, but every single one of them is permeated, underscored and affected by Brexit, be it directly or indirectly.
The confidential report quotes senior EU figures describing the “chaos in the Conservative government” as the official Brexit date gets closer.
Brexit begins in six weeks. This is about the first legal implication of Brexit, the first drop from the cliff edge. It takes place on January 1st, 2018, when the UK government loses its right to issue carbon dioxide emission permits.
Left-wing attacks of the EU have a long political heritage and include some much-loved figures on the left, like Tony Benn. It paid high Finnish wages and abided by high Finnish worker standards and, as a consequence, it made a loss.
German chancellor Angela Merkel is in a perilous political position after coalition talks fell apart.
The social media giant has admitted that the platform was targeted by Russian trolls in the weeks leading up to the Brexit vote.
The Conservatives had won 69% of their new 2017 voters by the start of the general election campaign. Much of this success was linked to a belief that now they were unshackled by EU membership, they would at last be effective in reducing immigration. In 2015 hardly anyone believed David Cameron would reduce immigration.
