Trump Baby Blimp Hits The Skies Of London During UK Visit

In extraordinary scenes at the House of Commons, where newly appointed Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab was supposed to be announcing the controversial policy, members ran out of the room when they heard that copies of it were now available.

"It is terrible to hear the inflammatory language that he uses and I am embarrassed that (Prime Minister) Theresa May has done so much to welcome him".

Mrs Theresa May released the most contentious document of her two-year premiership on Thursday (July 12), vowing to push through her plan to keep Britain closely tied to the European Union single market after Brexit.

The UK-India Joint Trade Review, which also focused on life sciences and information technology, formed the crux of a new UK-India trade partnership announced during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the UK in April for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

A banged up auto decorated with a banner saying "For sale - but no one's buying May's Brexit banger" is driven around Parliament Square in London.

She was responding to a question about whether her latest Brexit proposal - which includes a "common rulebook" with the European Union - would make it impossible for the United Kingdom to make its own trade deals.

Hammered out at Theresa May's Chequers retreat, the plan has upset Tory Leavers, who fear it doesn't amount to a "hard Brexit", with David Davis and Boris Johnson quitting their ministerial posts in protest.

Trump did not exactly give May's plans a ringing endorsement.

"The relationship between our two nations is indispensable to the cause of justice and peace", Trump said.

In the interview, he ripped her strategy and accused her of failing to respect the results of the 2016 referendum, which saw 52 per cent of voters back leaving the EU. "That is exactly what we will do". In denying a query from CNN anchor Jim Acosta, Trump said that "CNN is fake news". Campaigners for expat rights have however disagreed with this, saying Britons are exercising an European Union free movement right which is indivisible and automatically includes so-called "onward movement' rights". Time is running out to reach an exit agreement by the self-imposed October deadline, and Mrs May's plan has nothing new about the critical issue that is holding up progress: Avoiding customs checks at the border with Ireland.

As part of the UK's proposed economic partnership, a "common rulebook" for goods including agri-food is put forward, covering only those rules necessary to provide for frictionless trade at the border.

After months of infighting in Britain as the continent looked on, it means the next hurdle will be the EU's remaining 27 countries having to confront their own differing views on how far to push Britain into greater concessions.

Free trade would not apply to services, which account for 80 per cent of the British economy.

A small group of pro-Trump supporters waved the USA flag alongside the Union Jack, chanting "We want Trump" and "Trump for 2020".

He added, "I said, 'Brexit will happen.' The vote is going to go positive, because people don't want to be faced with the disgusting immigration problems that they are being faced with in other countries".
