Theresa May is set to give in to demands to pay France to secure its borders, and to take more ‘chid’ migrants from Calais.
The prime minister, “desperate for allies” in Europe as she attempts to cobble together a transition deal and trade agreement with the EU which can be sold to a public increasingly dissatisfied with her concessionary approach, has agreed to hand over £44 million to France.
This will be used to upgrade French border fences, surveillance equipment, and other devices intended to deter and detect illegal migrants, The Telegraph reports.

Tory (lack of) power-base takes another hit.
The UK prime minister’s right hand man Damian Green has been fired from his post based on the allegations over pornography usage.
In an ongoing saga Damian Green was “asked to quit” after he made “inaccurate and misleading” statements over what he knew about claims pornography was found on his office computer in 2008.

“Wish we could burn her.”

Following Theresa May’s dinner with Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels, we have a promise that both sides are committed to accelerating Brexit negotiations…except nobody actually believes that.
Apart from the “bear hug” that Juncker gave Britain’s Brexit Secretary, David Davis, as they went their separate ways, there is no evidence that relations are any more cordial, or that any tangible progress was made in breaking the deadlock.
FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Britain is prepared to abide by European Union rules and pay into the bloc’s coffers for two years after leaving the EU in March 2019, Prime Minister Theresa May said Friday in a conciliatory speech intended to revive foundering exit talks.
H/t reader squodgy:
“The betrayal of the British people by the establishment politicians and shadow government establishment is moving along steadily by fudging the exit until it is just too late.”

Update 1: After hearing from her former chief of staff earlier, British Prime Minister Theresa May has also now weighed in on Trump’s tweets from this morning which have largely been interpreted as a criticism of the UK’s security services for failing to prevent today’s terrorist attack in London.
“I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation.”
Forward to the 2:25 mark for the relevant comments (or click here):
Meanwhile, according to Bloomberg, May relayed a similar message to President Trump directly after he called the Prime Minister earlier this morning to relay his condolences.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has raised the country’s threat level to “critical” from “severe” following today’s subway explosion attack at Parsons Green tube station in south-west London. A “critical” level typically means that the British government believes a terrorist attack is imminent.

As reported earlier in the day, at about 8 AM local time, a homemade bomb was detonated in a London metro station, injuring approximately 30 people. Following the bombing, Westminster raised the national threat level to “severe.” Now, it has been raised again to “critical,” the highest threat level possible.
British Prime Minister Theresa May is yet to decide whether to publish details of a report about foreign funding of extremism in the UK with a focus on Saudi Arabia.
The outcome of the Home Office investigation is not yet released, which “leaves question marks over whether their decision is influenced by our diplomatic ties,” said the Green party co-leader, Caroline Lucas, as cited in a Guardian report, published Monday.
Citigroup has warned clients that Theresa May’s position as prime minister is “unsustainable”, warning them to prepare for the government to collapse within a matter of months.
The multinational banking corporation believes the parliamentary majority which the prime minister secured through her deal with Ulster’s Democratic Unionist Party is “not comfortable enough for crunch votes”, according to a report in The Times.
If you are paying attention, you will see more and more stories positioned by the mainstream media steering the public away from a ‘Hard BREXIT’ and reminding people that, ‘the public mood has changed since the referendum,’ and that ‘maybe it’s easier for Britain to just stay in the EU.’
What The Guardian is carefully avoiding here, is the realpolitik thriving beneath this carefully spun headline. In fact all British media are avoiding the true nature of the BREXIT deception, which is that the Conservative Party never intended to take the UK out of the EU.
