Trump flies in… hits out at ‘not nice’ Democrats
DONALD Trump arrived in the UK last night for a two-day Nato summit starting today in London. The arrival of Air Force One marks the US president’s third visit since being elected. He tweeted: ‘Heading to Europe to represent our Country and fight hard for the American People while the Do Nothing Democrats purposely scheduled an Impeachment Hoax hearing on the same date as NATO. Not nice!’ Protesters, including NHS workers, plan to demonstrate outside Buckingham Palace today.
We’re not nasty racists, insists new Ukip leader
NOBODY in Ukip is ‘seriously racist’, its interim leader insisted at the party’s manifesto launch. Patricia Mountain told a press conference in Westminster ‘we’re not nasty racists’, but are ‘caring people’. She added: ‘I’ve never met a racist in Ukip. Well, maybe a few people on the edge, but not seriously racist, only people who have concerns about the country.’ The manifesto calls for a ‘clean exit’ from the EU — plus an end to foreign aid, hate speech laws and primary school ‘LGBT education’.
Swinson: The PM must protect food standards
THE Liberal Democrats have urged Boris Johnson to use talks with Donald Trump this week to protect British farmers and consumers in any post-Brexit US trade deal. Party leader Jo Swinson called on the PM to make clear to the US president, in talks on the sidelines of the Nato summit, that the UK will maintain its food standards. She claims leaked documents show the US pushing for Britain to allow more chemicals in food production, including chlorine-washing chicken and growth hormones in beef cattle.
