“The whole Brexit process has been characterized by division and infighting in Westminster. The victors of the 2016 referendum still can’t agree amongst themselves what they want, two years later,” Clegg told The Independent.
He was echoed by former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, who tweeted that “33m+ people voted in the EU referendum wanting a better country, not to be poorer, not to put further pressure on our already-stretched health service, not for job losses or to stockpile food and medicines.”
Also backing the second Brexit referendum are ex-Attorney General Dominic Grieve, who said that another such vote is “the sensible way forward” and former Education Secretary Justine Greening, who slammed the government’s current Brexit blueprint as “the worst of both worlds” which would “suit no-one.”
One of the most damning moments in President Donald Trump‘s joint press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin no longer happened. At least, that’s how it would appear if you go by the official White House records of the event.
Trump reportedly fawned over Putin after their meeting and told aides the Russian leader was strong, smart, and cunning
And Sanders created a fresh headache for the administration when she said the White House was still reviewing a proposal from Putin to allow access by Russian law enforcement officials to Americans whom the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes in return for US access to interrogations of Russian agents indicted for their alleged roles in interfering in the 2016 election. The State Department, by contrast, rejected the proposal — which Trump days earlier had called an “incredible offer — as “absurd.”
So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki. Putin and I discussed many important subjects at our earlier meeting. We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match. Big results will come!
