Britain’s opposition Labour Party will immediately guarantee the rights of millions of EU citizens living in the UK if it wins a June election, it said on Tuesday, setting out a Brexit strategy aimed at eating into Prime Minister Theresa May’s runaway lead.

May’s surprise decision to hold an early election on June 8 gave opposition parties just seven weeks to prepare, and Labour trails her Conservatives by around 20 points in the polls.

Its Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer criticised what he called her “reckless” approach to negotiations on extracting Britain from the European Union.

“It is often said that EU nationals contribute to our society and so they do, but they are part of our society … and they should not be used as bargaining chips,” he said in a speech in London.

A Spanish navy patrol ship entered Gibraltar’s territorial waters without permission on Tuesday, the government of the British outpost on the southern tip of Spain said.

The future of Gibraltar has become the first big dispute of Brexit since Prime Minister Theresa May filed formal divorce papers last week, with the EU draft position on negotiations saying the application of any EU-UK trade deal to Gibraltar had be agreed between Spain and Britain.

“Illegal incursion into British Gibraltar Territorial Waters by Spanish Navy patrol ship Infanta Cristina this afternoon,” the government of Gibraltar said on Twitter, alongside a video of the ship.

On Monday, May’s spokesman played down comments by a former leader of her Conservative party, Michael Howard, that she would be prepared to go to war to defend the territory.

Before Sturgeon promises she should ensure if the EU want an independent Scotland and even if Scotland meets the EU criteria.

Should there be a second referendum then it will need more input than the previous referendum for they will need a different currency, which could well be the Euro. Their independence could also be short lived if the EU have their own way and create a federal Europe.

Brexit is just the current excuse for pushing for independence and if she fails this time look forward to a third referendum when she or the SNP see fit.


Tony Blair begging the UK to rise up against Brexit, as he say people who voted were not aware of the facts and are therefore entitled to change their minds.

So by the line of thought does this apply to General elections, for here we only have the promises made in each parties manifestos and do they deliver.

So if they do not can we then vote again and so may be reverse the election result. Would there not be anarchy.

What is he advocating, is taking to the street as they did on his decision to commence war with Iraq and what did he do, he ignored it and look what occurred.

It would appear the public, according to Blair, only know what they are doing when they agree with Blair other wise it is Fake News or alternative facts.

Where have we come across this before, well would you believe the US Presidential election and America got President Donald Trump. We got rid of Blair lets not let him back in, treat him with the contempt he deserves.


The process of exiting the European Union (EU) could worsen the social care crisis if the UK government does not protect access to personal assistants (PAs) from EU countries, disabled peers have warned. They told a work and pensions minister that uncertainty over the “Brexit” negotiations with fellow EU members was leading to “terrible uncertainty” among the thousands of disabled people whose PAs are citizens of other EU countries. But peers heard that there was not a single mention of disabled people or disability in the government’s white paper on Brexit. The disabled crossbench peer Baroness Campbell told the Lords debate on the impact of Brexit on disabled people – secured by the Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Scott – that she had employed PAs from at least 10 EU countries in the last 25 years. Baroness Campbell told fellow peers that other disabled people who employed PAs had told her that the pool of potential employees was “drying up”, while demand continued to rise, which
