Thérèse Coffey becomes DWP secretary after Amber Rudd resigns

KLAVAN: Where Britain Goes, America May Follow Brexit bill passes UK upper house in blow for Boris Johnson

Mr Farage has consistently said that the Brexit Party will put "country before Party" and be willing to enter into a "non-aggression" deal with Mr Johnson to ensure Brexit is delivered.

"When I asked Number 10 for a summary of what the plan was for actually getting a deal, I was sent a one-page summary", she told BBC television.

But France said Britain was failing to say what it wanted. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said that, as things stood, an extension would not be granted even if Britain asked for one next month.

Speaking in the wake of Amber Rudd's resignation, which has brought the government's majority down to minus 45, Mr Javid said the country does need a general election now, despite the sad timing.

The 56-year-old said she had once viewed Johnson's threat of a messy "no-deal" divorce as a useful negotiating tactic to take with Brussels.

It comes as Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd sensationally quit the Cabinet and the Tory Party over Johnson's decision to sack 21 Tory rebels last week, and the lack of activity in securing an exit deal. "He absolutely will not be asking for an extension in that meeting", Javid told the BBC's Andrew Marr show.

"Her position is perfectly defensible, perfectly respectful, what she is saying is professionally she would do her best, unlike Boris Johnson, to attempt to get a good deal".

British parliament blocks no-deal but Johnson says Brexit will happen
Mr Corbyn replied saying he did want an election and accused the Prime Minister of shutting down Parliament to avoid scrutiny. MPs voted 293 to 46, short of the 434 needed - marking the new prime minister's sixth Commons defeat.

Couple arrested for spending money deposited in their account by bank error
The bank credited the correct account with the $120,000 and debited the same amount from the incorrect one, the affidavit said. Instead of reporting the error to the bank, the pair chose to spend it over a period of two weeks, Fox5 reports .

For 9-11 families, mixed views on Trump-Taliban talks
Still, Ielpi sees the president as a get-things-done leader and hopes he can eventually work out a deal - if it's a stringent one. Speaking to reporters from the White House Monday afternoon, President Trump declared peace talks with the Taliban are "dead".

During Wednesday evening's crucial vote, MPs who disagree with Mr Johnson's Brexit plans came one step closer to forcing him to go back to the European Union to ask for an extension to the Brexit deadline, if there's no progress by 19 October.

The move came after Prime Minister Boris Johnson requested the Queen to allow such a suspension, from a date this week until October 14. "However, I no longer believe leaving with a deal is the government's main objective", she wrote in the letter posted on her Twitter handle.

Parliament approved a bill blocking a "no deal" Brexit last week, and Johnson is now pushing for an election on October 15. When the prime minister called on the opposition party to hold a vote, the man described that as part of the games he was playing.

"And yes, of course, we could do it, the United Kingdom could certainly get through it but be in no doubt that outcome would be a failure of statecraft for which we would all be responsible", Johnson said.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has also said Mr Johnson needs to comply with the new legislation.

"[What] if the government said "we don't have any reasons for an extension"?"

"We both agree we have much to discuss, we accept the democratic and sovereign decisions to leave the European Union", he said.
