Let's hope, Theresa May resigns next, giving the British voters the chance to rethink the whole idea of Europe. I don't think Brussels will stand for her cherry-picking.

Boris Johnson Has Ruined Britain

“He knows that the verdict of history is about to come down on him — and bury him.”

It is petrifying that the deliberate deceptions and wild ego of one man can so mislead a nation. (Americans know all about that.) One insider told me that Mrs. May was prepared for Mr. Johnson’s defection, and will outflank him, persuading wavering Conservatives that the time for fantasy has passed.

But Britain is teetering on the edge, on the verge of making catastrophic, irreversibly damaging mistakes. The danger is that Johnson might tip the balance in the wrong direction once again.

And now the new dear leader of the hemisphere, Donald the Great, told Brits in an interview with The Sun (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6766531/trump-may-brexit-us-deal-off/) that they there is no other way than to follow him against Europe or there'll be "no deal" with him. ;)

He must've missed the history classes, interpreting the Declaration of Independence as Britain's submission now.

Expect noise in London tonight!

UK reels from Trump tornado

The British pound fell and UK politicians reeled on Friday from the tornado-blast of US President Donald Trump, who humiliated Prime Minister Theresa May, dashed hopes of a quick US-UK trade deal and praised May's opponents in the high-stakes battle over Brexit.

All in just 24 hours in Britain.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Trump slammed May's plans for Britain's departure from the European Union and praised her political rival Boris Johnson, who quit May's Cabinet this week over Brexit differences. He also criticised immigration in Europe and declared that London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, had failed to stop terrorism.

The pound fell 0.6% to $1.31 after Trump's comments, and May's government struggled to put a brave face on a presidential visit that has veered wildly off course.

“Trump claimed that Theresa May's current Brexit plan ‘will probably kill’ any potential US trade deal, a comment that not only undermines the prime minister at the end of an already challenging week, but one that understandably sent sterling sharply lower,” said Connor Campbell, an analyst at SpreadEx.

In Britain, where sharp differences are often masked by formal politeness, many politicians expressed shock that the US president could be so downright rude.

In one of the milder responses, Universities Minister Sam Gyimah tweeted: “Where are your manners, Mr President?”

Labour Party foreign affairs spokeswoman Emily Thornberry said “Donald Trump ought to have listened to his mother.

“I am assuming that his mum told him that when you go to someone's house you do not insult the host.”

Trump's Brexit broadside came as May was trying to shift stalled divorce negotiations with the EU into higher gear. Britain will leave the bloc in March, but the two sides have not yet agreed on what sort of relationship they will have after that.

On Thursday, as Trump flew into Britain, May's government published a plan that includes free trade in goods and a common trade rule book with the EU.

Trump said such a deal “will probably kil” any prospect of a US-UK free-trade agreement. Boosting trans-Atlantic trade ties was one of Britain's main goals for Trump's first official visit to the UK as president.

May was hosting Trump for talks on Friday at her country residence, Chequers, over a lunch of Dover sole, Chiltern lamb and lemon meringue pie.

Trump and his wife Melania were also scheduled to have tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle later Friday.

With considerable optimism, Treasury chief Philip Hammond said May was looking forward to her talks with the president.

“I’m sure there will be a very positive discussion,” he said.

But the truth is that Trump's attack could weaken May's already fragile hold on power. Her Conservative government is deeply split between supporters of a clean break with the EU and those who want to keep close ties with the bloc, Britain's biggest trading partner.

Brexit Secretary David Davis and Johnson, the former foreign secretary, both quit this week to protest May's trade plan. Johnson, who helped lead the campaign to take Britain out of the EU, accused May of killing “the Brexit dream."

In his interview, Trump praised Johnson - another unpredictable, talkative populist. “I think he would be a great prime minister. I think he's got what it takes," Trump said.

Trump also renewed his attack on Khan, London's mayor. The two politicians have clashed on Twitter over Trump's ban on immigrants from several mostly Muslim countries and on the president's views on crime and terrorism in Britain.

Trump claimed that London's first Muslim mayor “has done a very bad job on terrorism” and said Khan “has not been very hospitable” to him.

Khan's office gave permission for London protesters to fly a six-metre balloon depicting the US president as a screaming baby near Parliament as part of nationwide demonstrations against Trump's visit.

Khan noted that other European and American cities had, like London, experienced terrorist attacks.

“And it's for President Trump to explain why he singled me as the mayor of London out and not the mayors of other cities and leaders of other cities,” he told Sky News.

Some opposition lawmakers called for the British government to cancel Trump's tea with the queen.

Labour Party lawmaker David Lammy tweeted that Trump “hates that London chose a Muslim mayor. The President is racist. He does not deserve to meet our Queen today.”

‘Did Donald Trump just WALK IN FRONT OF THE QUEEN?’

Some observers instantly became defensive of the queen, who turned 92 this year. “Did Donald Trump just WALK IN FRONT OF THE QUEEN?!?!?!" asked one clearly offended user. “I detested how Trump dared walk in front of the Queen today,” wrote another.

At one point, the queen can be seen gesturing to Trump, although it's unclear what exactly she may have been referring to. On social media, some speculated that Trump was being instructed on which side of her he should walk.

If that was the case, the president didn't grasp the message.

I've never seen Melania Trump having to walk behind him. And even in S. A. women are allowed to drive cars, no, endangering men to get under the wheels. ;D

Boris Johnson slammed over Islamophobic comments

New calls for Islamophobia inquiry in Johnson's party after he says women wearing face veils resemble 'letter boxes'.

 Boris Johnson, the former British foreign secretary, has come under fire after Islamophobic comments targeting Muslim women wearing face veils.

In an opinion piece published in Monday's Daily Telegraph, the Tory politician and leading figure in a campaign for Britain to leave the European Union said that Muslim women wearing the veils look like "letter boxes" and compared them to "bank robbers".

His comments prompted Muslim groups in the UK to renew calls for an inquiry into Islamophobia in the Conservative Party.

Russia's VTB bank apologises for CEO who called Boris Johnson a 'jerk'

Russian state bank VTB apologised for its CEO Andrey Kostin who made what it called an "emotional comment" on Monday when he described former British foreign minister Boris Johnson as a "jerk".

Standing next to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the country's prestigious Moscow State Institute of International Relations university, Kostin said Russia was lucky to have such a minister, while criticising his foreign counterparts.

"Look at, excuse me, the jerks in the West, say at Johnson and others," Kostin said, to applause.
