Donald Trump adds to Conservative Party’s Brexit nightmare

GBP to AUD exchange rate week ahead

British Prime Minister Theresa May met with her shaken-up Cabinet on Tuesday as she tried to restore government unity after the resignations of two top ministers over Brexit.

The resignations of Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson are like "rats jumping from a sinking ship" according to Hartlepool's MP.

The rebels do not have much less guarantee that y would win motion, as most members of party are supporters of a soft Brexit and many consider it madness to risk a crisis that could end up opening doors of Downing Street to Labour Jeremy Corbyn.

But he suggested that he might take time during his United Kingdom visit to speak with former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who he described as "a friend of mine".

Although May looked to have avoided a direct challenge to her leadership, there were more signs that all was not well.

Asked whether the appointment of Raab would affect the negotiations, Schinas said it mattered for Britain but not necessarily the EU: "What matters for us is the negotiating framework that our 27 member states have set for us".

Opinions are divided in May's cabinet over the way Britain is handling its exit from the EU.

She said: "The UK and the U.S. already have a uniquely close partnership in the fight for democracy and global security and we share a global outlook across the vast majority of foreign policy issues. I think he is a great representative for your country".

May's proposals envision the maintenance of a free trade zone with the EU in what concerns manufactured commodities and agricultural produce and contain the idea of a customs union.

One woman who saw the President arrive said he had given a "short speech" which she described as "lovely".

US President Donald Trump, asked about the unfolding drama ahead of his visit to Britain later this week, said it appeared "in somewhat turmoil".

He was enthusiastic about Johnson, calling him "a friend of mine".

"I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way".

"Unfortunately his contribution to the development of bilateral ties with Russian Federation was rather modest, to put it mildly", President Vladimir Putin s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

The Suddeutsche Zeitung says Davis and Johnson "ran away" from May, who it says is now in the "most hard crisis" of her time in Downing Street.

The plan also seeks to keep Britain in major EU agencies, including the European Aviation Safety Agency, the European Medicines Agency and the police agency Europol.

The pound edged down from $1.33 on Wednesday as investors tried to gauge if the resignation of two ministers over Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plans would affect an expected interest rate hike this summer.

Brexit-supporting lawmakers were angered by the proposals, saying they would keep Britain tethered to the bloc and unable to change its rules to strike new trade deals around the world.

Europe s chief negotiator Michel Barnier said Tuesday talks will resume next Monday as scheduled with the new Brexit minister, while refusing to comment on the political infighting consuming London.

The resignation of Davis revealed the intensity of the split in the Cabinet, although he did not appeal to other ministers to follow him.
