After UK-US spats, Donald Trump flies in to turmoil in Britain

After UK-US spats, Donald Trump flies in to turmoil in Britain

With numbers tight in the Commons, the prime minister - who relies on Northern Ireland's DUP to win key votes - would be vulnerable to any rebellion among Eurosceptic MPs as she tries to pass key laws needed for Brexit preparation.

May's new-look cabinet met for the first time on July 10, after a string of resignations (Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, and Brexit Secretary, David Davis, both quit) over her Brexit strategy left her government in crisis.

Reports suggested the Prime Minister would face a vote of no confidence in her leadership.

Jeremy Hunt, appointed foreign secretary as May carried out a hurried reshuffle of her top team, vowed that he would be "four square" behind her in driving through her Brexit plan.

In a tweet clearly created to show she was not being knocked off course, Mrs May said: "Productive Cabinet meeting this morning - looking ahead to a busy week".

"I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship", he said.

Mr. Johnson's dramatic resignation on Monday just hours after Brexit Minister David Davis quit late on Sunday sent reverberations through Westminster - and beyond.

The Irish prime minister (taoiseach) Leo Varadkar has welcomed the Brexit statement made by the United Kingdom government at Chequers last weekend. Speaking as he signed a joint EU-NATO declaration with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Tusk was apparently alluding to Trump's upcoming meeting with Vladimir Putin when he said "it is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem".

Conservative lawmaker Michael Fallon, an ally of May, dismissed Johnson's "Brexit dream" rallying cry.

The sources added that a 16-megapixel "super-wide angle" camera will be added to greatly improve landscape photography. It is also being reported that the camera placement will be horizontal as opposed to the common vertical arrangement.

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 15 per cent of Conservative lawmakers - now 48 - write a letter requesting one.

Speaking at the Institute of global and European Affairs in Dublin, Minister Coveney said there had not been a clear British negotiating position for many months.

Ministers also stepped up preparations for a "no deal" on Brexit as Brussels will be reluctant to consider any plan which would risk splitting the single market. This policy will be bad for our country and bad for the party.

"It takes 48 Conservative members out of a total of 60 to trigger a leadership challenge; however, we are unlikely to see the challenge happen because there is not yet the belief that they have the numbers to effectively oust Theresa May", Hoez added.

The ex-MP said there was a "plan" to curtail the role of the Brexit department.

British newspaper The Guardian reports the Ambassador's comments when he said: "We'll make everything possible if the president wants to do something..."

"We deliver that Brexit and we do it in a way that protects jobs and livelihoods and meets our commitment to Northern Ireland", she added.

In his resignation letter, Johnson wrote: "Brexit should be about opportunity and hope".

European Union officials say they will respond to the proposals once they have seen details.
