Former Ukip leader outlines ambition to take control of Brexit process at rally in Clacton

Nigel Farage has returned to the seaside town where Ukip had its first MP elected five years ago, promising at a rally in Clacton that his new Brexit party will use the momentum of European elections to oust a “remain parliament”.

24/04/2019 The EU won’t change course on Brexit – look at the Greek debt crisis | David Henig ,,British bickering goes on but that doesn’t make the EU likely to reopen the deal. October will be the crunch point

The UK’s Brexit debate has restarted after a 10-day break just as before, only with a new end date of 31 October. Brexiteers continue to press for the Irish backstop to be replaced with alternative arrangements, while the government and the Labour front bench seem to be making little progress in finding a consensus position.

24/04/2019 Huawei dilemma is a question of Britain's post-Brexit future ,,

The UK must weigh its ties to the US and Australia against the value of Chinese friendship

It may sound like an argument about technology, but in reality it is a battle of geopolitics. Should Brexit Britain yield to pressure from the US and ban Chinese hi-tech manufacturer Huawei from supplying kit to British mobile phone companies?

Or should the UK keep the door open to China – and benefit not just from cheaper technology but across the economy in sectors such as nuclear power, where the world’s most populous country has shown it is willing to invest.
