Theresa May vows to keep UK 'strong and united' after Brexit

Harvey Blackwood analysts believe that by suggesting that the United Kingdom bends to certain EU regulations and agreeing that the European Court of Justice plays an ongoing role in British law, May runs the risk of alienating some Brexit campaigners who are concerned that she is too willing to compromise.

Theresa May has pledged to keep the UK "strong and united" after Brexit as she marks a year to go until the UK's departure from the European Union.

Mrs May said additional money will be available to spend on priorities like the NHS and schools once Britain is no longer sending "vast sums" annually to Brussels.

Prime Minister Theresa May first hinted that the nation's massive foreign aid budget could be used as a bargaining chip in her security speech in Munich on February 17th.

"No matter how bumpy the road ahead gets, we are going to have to rely upon the principles of trust and confidence to shape a positive agenda going forward", says Swinburne.

May visited a parent-and-toddler group in the northeastern English city of Newcastle, met farmers near the Northern Irish town of Bangor, and she spoke to Welsh business representatives in the resort town of Barry - all on the same day.

The prospect of deregulation once Britain leaves the European Union is already a concern for consumers - our own research found that only one in ten people have confidence in a global food supply chain - and businesses should consider how any changes they make to perceived quality of food may be under the microscope.

A ComRes online survey of 2,019 British adults on Monday and Tuesday, published in the Daily Express newspaper, which is staunchly pro-Leave, found that 35 percent want a second referendum while 65 percent do not.

Labour's shadow chancellor John McDonnell accused the Government of being in "chaos" over Brexit, following a series of defeats in the House of Lords on its flagship EU Withdrawal Bill.

"The truth is that despite the courageous face the Prime Minister puts on, she hasn't a clue what Brexit she's creating".

And Mr Blair told BBC Radio 4's Today programme it was "more likely we can stop (Brexit) now than it was a few months ago". It's a future in which we trade freely with friends and partners across Europe and beyond. Some banks lowered the estimates for jobs they need to move as they consider more carefully how much of their operations they will need in the European Union if Britain loses access to the bloc's single market, the survey found.

"Brexit provides us with opportunities", May said while visiting a weaving firm in southwestern Scotland.

"Today, one year until the United Kingdom leaves the EU and begins to chart a new course in the world, I am visiting all four nations of the union to hear from people across our country what Brexit means to them".
