Davies protested his innocence and contested the seat again, but saw the Liberal Democrats' Jane Dodds overturn his previous majority of 8,038 and win by a margin of 1,425 votes.

Johnson has said he would prefer to the leave the European Union with a deal but has rejected the Irish backstop - an insurance policy to prevent the return of a hard border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland - which the European Union says is key to any agreement.

Remember May's Brexit deal? This week the government set aside 2 billion pounds ($2.4 billion) for no-deal measures including more border officers and stockpiling essential medicines.
Politico reported that part of the money would be spent on a Europe-wide media blitz that included adverts in major continental newspapers aimed at convincing European Union governments about the strength of Britain's no-deal resolve.
The slide was published by Sky News, which said it was drawn up before May left office last month. They like the look of the Boris government partly because of the "Indian look" of the cabinet but agree with Mark Carney, the governor of the Bank of England, that Brexit would devastate the economy.
