    Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday accused the European Union of threatening a food blockade of the country if it failed to agree to the 'divorce' terms imposed by Brussels. "We are now hearing that, unless we agree to the EU's terms, the EU will use an extreme interpretation of the Northern Ireland protocol to impose a full-scale trade border down the Irish Sea," the British prime minister wrote in an op-ed for the Daily Telegraph

    A summit of top European Union leaders failed on Friday after German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other heads of government left the conference without an agreement on how to fill the hole created in the bloc's budget by Britain's exit. The leaders of 27 EU member states had gathered in Brussels to finalize the trillion-dollar-budget for the next seven years.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's election victory over his rival Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn triggered an unprecedented meltdown in European Liberal media and political circles. The Conservative Party led by Johnson won a resounding 80-seat majority on Thursday, paving the way for Brexit by the end of next month. While the Conservatives secured their biggest majority since Margaret Thatcher's victory in 1987, the socialist Labour registered its worst election performance since 1935.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party has won a landslide victory in Thursday's general election, final results show. With 644 seats out of 650 declared so far, Conservatives have won 366, Labour secured 203, followed by the potential Labour ally Scottish National Party (SNP) at 48. The pro-EU Liberal Democrats got 11 seats. Nigel Farage's Brexit party, which pulled majority of its candidates in favor of the Conservatives, failed to register a single win.

    The latest polls show British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has increased his lead over Labour Party rival Jeremy Corbyn. "Boris Johnson’s Tories have established their biggest lead over Labour for two years," the British newspaper The Telegraph reported. With less than three weeks to go until the December 12 election, the Conservative party is "on course for 80 seat majority" in the 650-seat Lower House, the newspaper predicted citing a "monthly poll of polls."

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson-led British Conservatives have doubled their lead over the opposition Labour party days after Nigel Farage pulled hundreds of Brexit Party candidates ahead of the December 12 election. The ruling Conservative party now has the support of around 45 percent of the vote, with the left-wing Labour trailing with 28 percent, the latest YouGov poll for the UK's  Sunday Times shows.

    In a massive boost to Prime Minister Boris Johnson-led British Conservatives, Nigel Farage has pulled hundreds of Brexit Party candidates ahead of the December 12 election. The Brexit Party will not field candidates in all 317 seats that the ruling Conservative party won in the last general election. "The Brexit party will not contest the 317 seats the Conservatives won at the last election," Farage said. "We will concentrate our total effort into all the seats that are held by the Labour party, who have completely broken their manifesto pledge in 2017 to respect the result of the referendum, and we will also take on the rest of the remainer parties. We will stand up and fight them all."

    The UK Conservative party's lead is narrowing in polls as Remain parties enter an election pact to defeat Prime Minister Johnson and prevent Brexit ahead of the December 12 general election. The pro-EU Liberal Democrats and the Green party are targeting specific constituencies to maximize their chances of entering the parliament. The so-called 'Remain Alliance' is targeting "dozens of seats across the UK in an all-out bid to block Boris Johnson and Brexit," the Daily Mail reported Sunday.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a Brexit deal with the European Union ahead of a crucial summit in Brussels. The details of the agreement were announced at a joint press conference with EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels today. "We have a great new Brexit deal,” Johnson declared.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has laid out his final offer to the European Union ahead of the October 31 Brexit deadline. If Brussels fails to accept the proposal, the UK will leave the EU without a deal, Johnson warned. The UK will be "coming out of the EU on October 31," he said. The proposal will "honor the referendum," Johnson told parliament on Thursday. He described his five-point offer as a set of "constructive and reasonable proposals, which provide a compromise for both sides."
