UK's Johnson pledges $2.2B more to public health system

DUP leader Arlene Foster has defended Boris Johnson

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Mr Tice said the Tories had "lost the trust of millions of voters", adding: "The way the next election is fought will depend on its timing".

Former Congressman Bruce Morrison, who co-chairs the Ad Hoc Committee, noted: "As former members of Congress we can assure you that getting any trade deal through the Congress is challenging at any time".

The prime minister said: "It's all there in the Good Friday Agreement, we believe in complete impartiality and that's what we're going to observe".

'The leaders both expressed their commitment to delivering an ambitious free trade agreement and to starting negotiations as soon as possible after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union'.

Meanwhile, the British government is stepping up it's no-deal preparations with a £2.1 billion fund to stockpile medicines, hire more border officials, and run an information campaign.

The new Prime Minister does plan to strike a new Brexit deal with Brussels, despite the bloc's claims they are not willing to alter Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement.

But by ushering in a spending spree on health, education and policing after years of economic austerity, Johnson has fueled expectations of an early election - something his team says will not happen before Britain leaves the European Union on October 31.

Shortly after Mr Johnson settled into Number 10, the two men had a phone conversation agreeing to close economic cooperation.

But he could rely on Labour trying to bring down his administration with a vote of no confidence, which could also bring about a national vote if a new government is not formed within a fortnight.

"They don't realise that if there is a no-confidence vote in September or October, we'll call an election for after the 31st and leave anyway", Cummings is reported to have said, and instructed staff to prepare for No Deal on the basis that the European Union might not realise that Johnson supposedly really is set on an October 31st Brexit, deal or no deal - a premise doubted by some Brexiteers, including Nigel Farage - until it is too late.

It is widely expected that Labour will bring a motion of no confidence in the government after parliament returns to work in September to try to stop a no deal, but Johnson's top aide was reported as saying such a move would not work.

Liberal Democrat health spokeswoman Baroness Jolly said Mr Johnson's pledge "will not be worth the paper it's written on" when a no-deal hits.

According to The Observer, Mr Hammond met with Shadow Brexit Secretary Kier Starmer to discuss how best to use parliamentary votes to prevent a no deal Brexit. The EU says that's not open for discussion, hence the rising talk of a no-deal Brexit and the pound's woes.
