UK Now Threatens to Close Its Borders Immediately After Brexit

Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday implored Germany and France to pave the way for a Brexit compromise, while again reassuring that the UK was ready to leave the European Union without an agreement on 31st October. Johnson’s government said Monday that it would “immediately” end the free movement of people in case of a Brexit without agreement on 31st October, a rather hard position compared to the one from the previous regime.

Tories Lose By-Election, Boris’ Majority Reduced to One

After less than two weeks in office, Boris Johnson appears to have failed his first electoral test as Britain’s Prime Minister.  Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Jane Dodds won the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election on Thursday, defeating embattled Tory incumbent Christopher Davies by 1,425 votes, and cutting the government’s majority in the Commons to just one.  That includes the Conservative Party’s shotgun partners from Ulster, the Democratic Unionist Party.  With fears of a no-deal Brexit very real, and very much back on the table, that number could shrink even further by the end of the week.

British Prime Minister Announces Investments of 329 Million Euros in Scotland

British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson on Monday doubled an offensive to boost his Brexit goals. On the one part, he announced an investment plan of 300 million pounds (329 million euros) in Scotland, a territory mostly contrary to an EU exit, especially without a pact. On the other hand, the conservative leader’s office sent a harsh message to the EU, warning that Johnson will not negotiate with Brussels if the safeguard included in the exit agreement is not withdrawn before avoiding a hard border in Ireland.

No-deal Brexit: London Accelerates Preparations of an EU Exit Without Agreement

The new British Government “is working with the assumption of a Brexit without agreement,” reiterated Michael Gove, responsible for exploring, if possible, a negotiation with Brussels but, above all, supervising the preparations for an exit from the EU. This was stated by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, during his inauguration and his deputy has ratified it in a platform published  in The Sunday Times: “The no-deal (no agreement)  is now a very real perspective.”

Boris Johnson a Step Away From Becoming Britain’s Prime Minister

Turbulent months are expected in the European Union (EU) with Great Britain. It is likely that the day after tomorrow, Boris Johnson will become the new British prime minister, and with his coming to power there is a complicated panorama for the bloc: a Brexit without agreement or a new postponement.

Conservatives who govern Britain will announce tomorrow who will be the new party leader, replacing Theresa May. The chosen one will automatically become prime minister the next day. A little more than three months later, on October 31, Britain is expected to leave the European Union (EU).

Boris Johnson vs. Jeremy Hunt for PM: Winner Gets the Mess

And then there were two.  The race to replace Theresa May as leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party, and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, is down to its final candidates.  Heavily-favored Boris Johnson will face the surprising Jeremy Hunt, who took Johnson’s job as Foreign Secretary when he resigned in protest of May’s Brexit deal.  The winner will be decided by the party’s 160,000 grassroots members some time late next month.  It is a contrast in styles, abilities, and Brexit itself.

Britons Back Boris to Deliver Brexit, Beat Brexit

The race for arguably the least-desirable job in global politics may be turning in to a cakewalk. Boris Johnson, former London Mayor, Foreign Secretary, and current brash Brexiteer, appears to be cruising to 10 Downing Street, to succeed Theresa May as leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Johnson easily topped his rivals in the first round of voting among Tory MPs Thursday. Eventually, all but two candidates will be eliminated, giving the party’s 160,000 faithful the final choice. As is typically the case in electoral politics, winning the job will be the easy part.

In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb: The End of May

Early Friday morning, outside the steps of 10 Downing Street, Theresa May brought the unmitigated disaster of her premiership to an abrupt and ignoble end. Three years ago, the day after 52% of Britons voted for divorce from the European Union, May inherited a deeply divided populace, a disintegrating political party, and a country flung into chaos by its own hand. By every measurable metric, she has left the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the Conservative and Unionist Party with it, in a worse state than when she found it.

Brexit: Fourth Time Lucky?

The Brexit deal nobody likes is back, and characteristically, there’s something in it for everyone to hate. A ten-point plan presented to MPs by Prime Minister Theresa May contained many of the same promises and compromises she had previously offered. Vague language about “alternative arrangements” and “keeping Northern Ireland aligned” aren’t any more likely to win over Conservative Brexiteers, or her Democratic Unionist partners, than they were before. At least one item, per The Guardian, seemed placed for no other reason than to round the list up to ten.

UK Local Elections: All Politics is Brexit

In a possible dress rehearsal for European elections later this month, British voters took out their frustrations on the two major parties in local elections on Thursday.  Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives got the worst of it, losing some 1,300 city councilors, and more than 40 councils, compared to their 2015 figures.  Labour fared no better, dropping about 80 councilors, and losing control of a half-dozen city councils.  For good measure, even pro-Brexit UKIP, big winners four years ago, lost almost all their seats Thursday night.
