Don’t take peace for granted, British PM Johnson tells NATO leaders

Donald Trump is the man no one in Britain wants to dance with

It’s going to be a tense few days for the UK’s political class. With barely any time left till the election and Johnson’s poll lead holding firm, he will be counting the minutes till Trump’s back in the air and heading home. Corbyn and the rest will be praying that the temptation to say something controversial is too great for the President — don’t be surprised if they bait him. And Nigel Farage will probably be sitting around waiting for his brief audience with Trump, reminding everyone — including Johnson — that he has the President’s ear.

Drop your dreadful deal, Boris, and in the national interest let’s get Brexit done properly

The Brexit Party is ready for the general election. As the European election made clear, we have hundreds of high quality candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds who are united in their desire to secure a proper break from Brussels and who share a lack of trust in the political class.

We will use the substantial funds which our donors and supporters have helped us raise to fight every seat. If we are the only party willing to stand up for a proper Brexit, so be it.

Boris Johnson cannot get a majority unless he delivers Brexit on October 31, Tory conference poll shows

The Daily Telegraph has obtained a ComRes survey which was presented last week at a conference fringe event attended by Tory MPs. Mapping voter reaction to five Brexit scenarios, it showed the Tories would only win a majority in the Commons if Britain left the EU on October 31.

However any delay – even if it leads to a no deal Brexit immediately after an election, or Brexit being cancelled altogether, will leave a hung Parliament.

Der von Brüssel geforderte Schutz des Europäischen Binnenmarkts vor Produkten, die nicht den EU-Standards entsprechen, läge in der Hand des nordirischen Regionalparlaments.

Die Volksvertreter dürften künftig alle vier Jahre darüber entscheiden, ob sich der britische Landesteil an europäischen oder an britischen Standards orientiert.

Stenografischer Bericht 25. Sitzung Berlin, Donnerstag, den 13. Februar 2003

Dr. Angela Merkel: Sie machen sich Sorgen, ob wir, die Politiker – egal ob Regierung oder Opposition –, unser Land durch eine schwierige Zeit, insbesondere durch den Irakkonflikt und durch den Kampf gegen den Terrorismus mit Klugheit und Weisheit führen können. Die Menschen in diesem Lande wollen keinen Krieg.

(Hans-Werner Bertl [SPD]: Das ist wahr!)

Diejenigen, die in diesem Saale sitzen, wollen auch keinen Krieg.

(Lebhafter Beifall bei der CDU/CSU und der FDP)

Sehr geehrter Herr Bundeskanzler, wie sehr Sie innerlich unter Druck stehen, hat man schon an der Lautstärke Ihrer Stimme gemerkt.

(Lachen bei der SPD)

Dass Sie es aber nötig haben, die Opposition dieses Hauses als Kriegstreiber zu verleumden,

(Hans Michelbach [CDU/CSU]: Pfui!)

zeigt, in welcher Ecke Sie stehen. Aus dieser Ecke werden Sie nicht herauskommen können.

(Anhaltender Beifall bei der CDU/CSU und der FDP)

Wer als Bundeskanzler der Bundesrepublik Deutschland den Eindruck erweckt, irgendjemand würde sich die Entscheidung über Krieg und Frieden leicht machen und die letzte Chance aus der Hand geben, der, sehr geehrter Herr Bundeskanzler, hat nicht erfasst, worum es geht.

(Beifall bei der CDU/CSU und der FDP)

Ich sage Ihnen: Sie sind seit Wochen auf einem Irrweg. Das Schlimmste ist – das sage ich mit großem Ernst; das ist meine feste Überzeugung –, dass insbesondere Ihr Verhalten auf dem Marktplatz von Goslar den Krieg im Irak leider nicht unwahrscheinlicher, sondern wahrscheinlicher gemacht hat; denn Sie haben den Druck auf Saddam Hussein verringert.

(Beifall bei der CDU/CSU und der FDP – Lothar Mark [SPD]: Das ist unglaublich! – Weitere Zurufe von der SPD)

Im Gegensatz zu Ihnen war ich in München und weiß, was ich gesagt habe. Niemand hat behauptet, dass es aufgrund der Resolution 1441 einen Automatismus der Gewalt gibt.

Jeremy Corbyn says Boris Johnson should ‚consider his position‘ as he demands recall of parliament

At the Labour conference Jeremy Corbyn has taken to the stage.

He says the supreme court judgment demonstrates Boris Johnson’s contempt for parliament.
