US Ambassador Plays Down Donald Trump's "Turmoil" Comment

12 July 2018

Expectations for a firmer Pound comes after a period of volatility stoked by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson who resigned at the start of the week, alongside the Brexit Secretary and a string of junior ministers, in protest over Prime Minister Theresa May having abandoned nearly all of her "red lines" in the Brexit negotiations.

That business-friendly Brexit proposal was only agreed by her cabinet last Friday after two years of wrangling since Britons voted to leave the bloc in a 2016 referendum.

Former leader Lord Howard said a bid to oust Mrs May would be "extremely foolish and extremely ill-advised". While the theatre for prosecuting this new diplomatic virtual war to reacquire independence for Britain was the European Union headquarters in Brussels, it has now spread its tentacles to Westminster, to the Labour Party, the DUP coalition partner, Conservatives, the media, the business community, and the people themselves who conducted a million-people march against Brexit through the streets of London recently.

"I have a very good relationship".

"It may resolve the dilemma the Prime Minister faces".

Mr Buckland added that there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately".

Rees-Mogg has assembled a significant amount of Eurosceptic MPs, including fellow Tory backbenchers, the DUP, and Kate Hoey from Labour, who are furious at the PM's Chequers Brexit plans they've nicknamed "Brino" (Brexit In Name Only), according to the Sun.

Further resignations by the two vice-chairmen of the Conservative Party have heightened tensions at Westminster and the governing party.

Ambassador Johnson sought to play down Trump's comments.

With less than nine months to go, it is a long-delayed decision and has not been without its consequences - Mr Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned within hours of each other over a plan they said they could not defend.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, speaking at the Western Balkans summit in London on Tuesday, said it was a "good thing" that there was a British proposal on the table.

"We need to see whether the taskforce can accommodate some of the British thinking", he said.

Leavers who try to stop the prime minister's "soft Brexit" risk wrecking the whole process of withdrawal and toppling the government, Mr Davies said.

Many pro-exit lawmakers oppose the plan, which they say will stop Britain forging an independent economic course.

Meanwhile, Justice Secretary David Gauke warned Tory Eurosceptics that a "no deal" Brexit was "not an attractive option at all".

In comments likely to alarm Mrs May, Trump acknowledged the "turmoil" facing her government but said he was nevertheless looking forward to "an interesting time" when he visits the United Kingdom later this week.
