It’s very likely that any consensus that could be reached across the Commons would be a softer Brexit than the one May is currently pursuing.
That, I am afraid, is still a fairly open-ended answe
r. It might mean the need to renegotiate, which would mean a longer exten sion, which would mean being in the EU elections, which could mean a second referendum, ultimately.
y point here is that cross-party consensus might soun d nice, but on an issue as divisive as Brexit, it’s as likely as anything to blow up both main parties.
While things are far from rosy and three we
eks is not enough t ime to sort much, it’s worth noting that while Brexit might not be going terribly well, the last thr
ee years ha
ve been a huge learning curve for the entire UK. We know more now than we did. So while the next bit of the Brexit process might look crunchy, the decisions made in the coming days will not be made lightly.
At least 49 people were killed and 20 seriously injured in two mass shootings at mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.
The victims: Forty-one people were killed at the al Noor mosque. Seven people d
ied at the Linwood mosque, and one person died from their injuries in hospital. The suspect: Police said a male in his late 20s has been charged with murder and will appear at the Christchurch court Saturday morning local time.
ifesto: In a social media post just before the attack, an account that is believed to belong to one of the attackers posted a l ink to an 87-page manifesto that was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and e
xplanations for an attack. The manifesto was not signed. National security advisor John Bolton expanded upon the White House’s statement on the
attack on New Zealand mosques, which he characterized as “what seems to be a terrorist attack” and a “hate crime.”
Bolton said the US is “very concerned” and is following the events “very closely.”
“We’re obviously greatly disturbed on what seems to be a terror attack, this hate crime in New Zealand. We’ve been in touch
with our embassy overnight, we’re still getting details, but the State Department and others are following up on it.”
Bolton continued, “We’re very concerned, we’re going to cooperate with New Zealand authori
ties to the extent we can if there’s any role we can play, but we’re obviously following the events there very closely.”
entire life story of fighting and surviving, of cheating personal and professional ruin over and over, has delivered him to his greatest battle yet — the one to save his presidency.
Trump is facing down a swarm of investigations
from multiple congression al committees, a special counsel, state and federal prosecutors, and private litigants. His entire life is under scrutiny.
But the fight back has begun.
If there is
any President who could bear such strain, who would perhaps relish the struggle, prosper amid its cacophony and be willing to cross all sorts of conventional lines to stay alive, it would surely be Trump.
As a youth at New York Military Academy, th
e future President learned one thing above all else: “life is about survival. It’s always about survival,” according to writer Michael D’Antonio in his biography of Trump.
Republicans reject calls to probe Trump role in hush-money payments
Trump’s motto ever since, no matter the collateral damage and the cost of legal battles and reputational hits, personal scandals and bankruptcies. Now America is about to be dragged along on Trump’s most exist
ential struggle yet. Survival in a personal and political sense now defines his life, with Robert Mueller
‘s report expected to be filed soon and Democrats unfurling an oversight blitz that could lead to impeachment.
When House Democrats on Monday unveiled a mammoth document demand from a list of 81 potential witnesses lin
ked to Trump’s businesses, campaigns, presidency and family, he and aides initially pledged cooperation.
said Van Jackson, a former Defense Department official in the Obama administration.
”Historically, there have been many — I know of half a dozen instances myself personally
— where senior North Korean officials were brought around and shown what capi talist industrialism looks like. They were shown what the stock market floor looks like on the
New York Stock Exchange, or they were brought out to so me tech lab in Silicon Valley,” said Jackson, author of “On the Brink: Trump, Kim, and the Threat of Nuclear War.”
”We’ve shown them what capitalism looks like … the idea that they will see something in Vietn
cally that triggers something different than what we’ve shown them before is kind of non sense.”There’s something for both Washington and Pyongyang to like when studying the US-Vietnam relationship.
For North Korea, it’s an example of a single-party communist country that reformed i
ts economy without democr atizing. For the United States, it’s an example of how to redefine a relationship and make a buck at the same time.
In 1995 — the year Hanoi and Washington normalized relations — US exports to and imports from Vietnam were
worth just $252 million and $199 million respectively. However in the first 11 months of 2018, the US exported more th
an $8 billion worth of goods to Vietnam and imported goods worth $45 billion, according to US Census figures.
