UK Liberal Democrats could back Labour to force a second Brexit vote

UK Liberal Democrats could back Labour to force a second Brexit vote

Instead, the party is mired in a continuing anti-Semitism crisis amid accusations that it has mismanaged bigotry among its own members ahead of the December 12 vote.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson denied on Wednesday he was avoiding being pictured with Donald Trump ahead of a United Kingdom election next week, as footage emerged of other leaders mocking the USA president.

The gathering was meant to celebrate the 70th birthday of the 29-member military alliance, but fissures were on display as the leaders met at a luxury country hotel outside London.

He is due to have separate talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron.

A huddle which included the Prime Minister and the Princess Royal was filmed apparently gossiping about the U.S. president's unorthodox style on Tuesday night, although Mr Trump is not mentioned by name.

Corbyn told Neil: "I'm looking forward to having a discussion with him because I want to hear why he would say such a thing".

Labour say Johnson wants to sell parts of the publicly funded system off to US companies.

The Conservatives, meanwhile, have dipped two points to 39 per cent, six points ahead instead of the 13 points in BMG's survey a week ago. Johnson, who was filmed as part of the group listening to Trudeau at a Buckingham Palace reception on Tuesday, described suggestions he was mocking Trump as "nonsense".

NHS row Johnson's governing Conservatives are leading opinion polls for the December 12 election, but were wary of an intervention by Trump that might upset the campaign. The fate of the much-loved health service is a key Labour campaign plank.

The Labour Party leader wrote to Mr Johnson calling for him to discontinue discussions until Mr Trump rules out USA companies gaining any access to public services in a post-Brexit deal.

But the interviewer suggested that the PM could not achieve Brexit within a year and held up a huge stack of documents, pointing out how long it took to negotiate Theresa May's deal and a Canadian free trade deal.

"If it is off the table, then why is it included in all the talks?"

Online political adverts now do not require labeling to say who has paid for them, leading to criticism from Britain's Electoral Commission that the rules are not fit for goal.

Johnson is promising a tougher stance on the release of prisoners and has accused Labour's leader Jeremy Corbyn of being soft on terrorism.

A British newspaper published an op-ed by the influential philosopher Slavoj Zizek that appears to defend Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn against allegations of anti-Semitism.

Corbyn is a longtime critic of Western military interventions and has often criticized North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, but Labour's official policy is to remain part of the organization.

The Conservatives have set out their plan for the first 100 days of government, promising to pass Boris Johnson's withdrawal agreement and deliver Brexit by March 22.

All 650 seats in the House of Commons are up for grabs in next week's vote.
