David Davis: Britain risks 'giving up a real future' over Brexit

In his article on Monday he appealed for people to take a more positive view of Britain's prospects outside the European Union but otherwise largely avoided the issue, saying he would resist "for now" the temptation to "bang on about Brexit".

"We would make a tremendously big deal. we're going to argue, we're going to fight, and we're going to end up making a deal".

Mrs May denied that the plan would prevent Britain striking free trade deals around the world.

On Monday, much attention will fall on Davis, who led the Brexit negotiation until he quit in protest at May's plan, and Johnson, the former foreign minister who is seen as a challenger for her job. "Not negotiate, sue", the Tory PM said while appearing on the BBC's political program The Andrew Marr Show on Sunday.

"So if we were going to find something that was Britain's interest, that delivered on the referendum and that was negotiable, we had to make what is a compromise but is a positive in terms of the benefits it gives us".

"I acknowledge the Parliamentary opinion and arithmetic which constrain the Government's freedom of action but I can not support this policy with the sincerity and resolve which will be necessary". "Unfortunately, this jeopardises the opportunities offered by Brexit", Davis said.

Trump: "They do not have the right candidate".


He said: "I was walking up and I was saying (to Melania) 'Can you imagine my mother seeing this scene?" Well then what will happen to trust? "I like the immediacy, I like the power of it because it gets the point across".

Since his resignation, Johnson has been silent in public.

On Friday, the Telegraph said Johnson had re-joined the newspaper as a columnist. "She's a very special person".

"If you look at the polling that's come out over the last few days, the country wants this done properly".

British Prime Minister Theresa May is set to face the anger of Brexit supporters in her party when they try to force her to change course on her strategy for leaving the European Union.

"Right now I say we're competitors but for the United States, and frankly the UK and other places, to get along with Russian Federation and China and all of these other places". When he was elected president, at least 75 cases involving him or his companies were underway, according to USA Today, whose investigation identified more than 3,500 lawsuits involving Trump over three decades, ranging from contract disputes and real estate battles to harassment and discrimination claims.

"Now is the moment", The Telegraph quoted him as saying. "But in a trade sense, they've really taken advantage of us and many of those countries are in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and they weren't paying their bills".
