Boris Johnson criticises European Union lack of cooperation on Brexit deal

The poll has been criticised by Remain supporters on social media, who suggest the headline figures are misleading and the findings are based on leading questions - for instance, the survey refered to the prime minister as "Boris", and asked the public if it supports any means rather than explicitly just proroguing parliament.

Trump expressed appreciation for Britain's "steadfast partnership" in tackling global challenges in a call with Johnson, a White House statement said on Monday.

He said there is no set date or location for the meeting.

"This is a pre-election period", Labour's home affairs spokeswoman, Diane Abbott, told BBC radio on Monday.

Her remarks came after a leading think tank warned that MPs may have little chance of stopping Mr Johnson pushing through a no-deal Brexit when Parliament returns.

The government expects a group of MPs to try to block a no-deal Brexit by attempting to pass legislation when Parliament returns next month.

Ms Swinson also said she was "not surprised" the prime minister took nearly a week to contact Mr Varadkar after he was appointed. Describing Lucas as "a fantastic MP", the SNP leader added: "I'm more than happy to band together with a bunch of other women".

Speaking following a meeting with Mr Johnson during a visit to London, John Bolton said the United States could focus on striking bilateral trade deals in certain sectors like manufacturing and car-making where the two countries may agree, and work out more complicated areas later.

Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson. Supporters of Brexit say a free trade deal with the United States can help make up for any reduction in commerce with the European Union after Britain leaves the bloc's single market for goods and services.

Mr Bolton is the most senior member of the U.S. administration to visit the United Kingdom since Mr Johnson took over at Number 10.

Trump had wanted to work with the May government on a trade deal but her government "didn't want do it". We're with you, we're with you, " Mr. Bolton told reporters after his 1st day of meetings.

President Trump believes that "when it comes to trade negotiations the European Union is worse than China, only smaller, " the official said.

Bolton said that "in the Trump administration, Britain's constantly at the front of the trade queue - or line as we say".

The official also said visiting US national security adviser John Bolton and British trade minister Liz Truss had discussed the possibility of the two countries' leaders signing a road map declaration toward a trade deal at this month's G7 summit meeting in France.
